We could have see the brilliant Kevin Spacey starring in Sam Mendes Bond 23 as a villain. Apparently, both Spacey and director Sam Mendes were particularly excited about the Oscar winner playing the villain in the upcoming Bond 23.

The theater enthusiast is going on tour with the production of Richard III right as Mendes takes Bond 23 into filming, creating an unavoidable scheduling conflict.
Now Javier Bardem, is the next one on the list to be considered as the villain.
