El Cielo is the Limit for Javier Bardem

In Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz on February 27, 2008 at 10:00 am

Now that Javier Bardem has won the ultimate validation for an actor, Something tells me that he won’t be one of those actors who wins an Oscar one year and then disappear from the face of the Earth, only to resurface in ‘hab.


Up next, he’ll be starring in Tetro, Nine, and of course Vicky Christina Barcelona, the movie that will pair him up with querida Penelope Cruz. Javier seems to be drawn to complex characters, as was the case with his Oscar-nominated role as Anton Chirugh in No Country for Old Men:

“Being a foreigner, in a foreign movie, my first American movie, in a foreign landscape, working one or two days a week, with a lot of free time – and that haircut – there was a moment when I felt totally isolated, totally detached, and that’s what I brought to the character. Somehow I understood him, without trying to understand him.”
