Another step on the long road to Bond 23, which may or may not be called Skyfall, has been taken today with the long rumoured role for Javier Bardem confirmed by the man himself.

It’s not a particularly detailed conversation but it’s the first time that Bardem has spoken publically about his role, which will see him face off against Britain’s finest secret agent in the form of Daniel Craig. He’ll be joined by Naomi Harris, Ralph Fiennes and Dame Judi Dench and the whole shebang will be under the hand of Sam Mendes which points to a fine return for Bond.

Here’s the short clip, from MI6-HQ (via ComingSoon)
