Blond on Bond

  • Najib Benouar

Bond villains have had a proud history of maniacal hairdos (and so has Javier Bardem).

From the latest round of leaked stills from the upcoming Bond release, Skyfall, we are presented with Bardem in his full blond-coiffed glory, looking nearly as evil as his bowl-cut character in No Country for Old Men, but definitely more so than his character in The Dancer Upstairs.

Scant details have been released on the nature of Bardem’s character in the upcoming film, but that gives us a pretty good litmus test.

Water, Fall: Sometimes drinking from a water bottle is too hard. These women have chosen to simply pour it in the direction of their faces. [The Hairpin]

The Musings of Max Fischer: Jason Schwartzman enjoys Tom Waits, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Wallace Berman. Also, he’s broken a lot of watches. [GQ UK]

#23 Has Landed: Some details on Daniel Craig’s third Bond film—including Javier Bardem as the villain and Naomie Harris as at least one of the girls. [Entertainment Weekly]

Friends Forever: Playing the Kevin Bacon game with buddy comedies, Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy. Surprisingly enough, it works. [Vulture]

Elvis Presto is Involved: Video from an era when Super Bowl halftime shows involved 3D magic tricks and Solid Gold dancers. Still sounds better than the Black Eyed Peas. [Popdust]

The Legacy Pick: JPS shares a few snaps of Steve McQueen going clothes shopping. The man knew his way around a tuxedo. [A Continuous Lean]

Best Foot Forward: It’s time for you to make Viking shoes. Don’t ask why, just do it. [Boing Boing]

Stirred: Bond #23 has signed on both Javier Bardem and Ralph Fiennes for obscure, quasi-villainous roles. Add in Sam Mendes behind the camera and things are looking pretty interesting. [/Film]
