...for popularizing the term "friendo" in No Country for Old Man. (Cormac McCarthy or the Coen brothers wrote it, of course, but Javier brought it home.) Favorite Bardem performances, in this order: Vicky Cristina Barcelona, No Country, Before Night Falls, The Counselor, The Dancer Upstairs, Biutiful, The Sea Inside, Skyfall, Being The Ricardos. One of the very few name-brand actors to stand by Woody Allen when spears and missiles were raining down, and to throw shade upon the fanatics. One night on the Cote d'Azur beach in '07 or '08 I bummed a Marlboro light from Javier, and as we parted company a few minutes later he gave me another -- one to grow on, so to speak.
