Bardem is Beautiful

One of the most sought after actors in Hollywood--and rightfully so--is Javier Bardem. Somehow I just assume that every movie this guy is in will be quality. Dude just strikes me as someone with good taste (although even a monkey would have the forsight to say yes to a film with Penelope and Scarlett).

In the continuing tradition of good taste, Bardem is set to star in BIUTIFUL, for renowned Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (he of BABEL, AMORES PERROS, 21 GRAMS fame). The film is about a man embroiled in shady dealings who is confronted by a childhood friend who just happens to be a policeman. No word yet on whether the narrative will be disjointed, hopping back and forth in time and space, as is usually the case with Inarritu's films. This one may in fact be a departure from that narrative style, due to the recent squabbles he and long time collaborator Guillermo Arriaga have had over writing credits for their previous three collaborations. Apparently the two are no longer friends. That makes Javier and I sad.
Extra Tidbit: If you haven;t yet seen Bardem in THE SEA INSIDE, check it out pronto. It'll have you crying in your mommy's arms.
