When Javier Bardem snagged a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for playing the malevolent Anton Chigurh in Joel and Ethan Coen‘s No Country For Old Men (’07), he knew he’d be at the top of the list to play flamboyant bad guys in big-studio flicks, which of course would mean hefty paychecks. How many paycheck villain roles has Bardem played over the last six and half years? Only one — “Raoul Silva” in 2012’s reportedly signing to play another paycheck baddie in another big-budet flick, Pirates of the Caribbean 5, which will open in June 2017. Bardem and wife Penelope Cruz have two young kids, kids are expensive, they have to put them through college…I understand. Bardem is cool. He’s no Liam Neeson.
