Javier Bardem is no stranger to playing a bad guy — he won an Oscar in 2007 for his “bad guy” role in “No Country for Old Men” — but in the new James Bond flick, “Skyfall,” Bardem faced a unique challenge of portraying Raoul Silva.
The 43-year-old actor told Fox News Latino that Silva “above all is a human being,” but admits that his character is psychotic.

“What I like the most is there is a clear motive. We understand he is very human and this is powerful. I was attracted to the villain because I thought he was a nice guy. I could see it in his eyes.”
Bardem also said that he was excited to be part of the James Bond legacy (which features Daniel Craig in the title role of Agent 007). The film premieres tomorrow in London, and on Friday, October 26th, 2012, in the United States. You can read the rest of Bardem’s interview with Fox News Latino here.
