The role is being kept under wraps, but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that he'd likely play the film's villain.

Of course, he won't be playing Bond -- Daniel Craig will be starring in the role for the third time. Also returning to the franchise are Judi Dench, and director Sam Mendes. The film's release date is tentatively scheduled for November 9, 2012.

Bardem would be a great villain in the flick, but it sounds like he has a lot of roles to choose from coming up: He's apparently been offered the part of God of War in the Clash of the Titans sequel, and he's also been linked to the Rod Howard adaptation of The Dark Tower. We'll have to wait and see which enticing offer he accepts -- maybe Penelope will help pick!
