UPDATE: Javier Bardem confirms he will play the villain in Bond 23 (the title is rumored to be Skyfall), telling Nightline; "I am very excited, my parents took me to watch the movies, and I saw all of them, and to play that is going to be fun. They chose me to play this man, but I cannot give you many details." Daniel Craig hopes that both Bardem and Ralph Fiennes will be in the film. So do we.

Here's more on the latest rumored Bond girl.

EARLIER: The NYT reports, from an original story in London tabloid the Daily Mail, that Ralph Fiennes and Javier Bardem are joining Sam Mendes' Bond 23 (when will they give us a real title?), starring Daniel Craig as Agent 007, Naomie Harris as Miss Moneypenny and Judi Dench as M.


A Sony spokesman has "no comment on rumors," and offers no expectation of a forthcoming or imminent official announcement. The movie is set to open November 9, 2012.
