hmm… Ok, guys. Last week I didn’t look ahead and wrote about a villain, whom I mistook for a “sidekick.” If you will remember, I was pressed up against a deadline here, which I was already late for, so I picked a winner on the spur of the moment! That’s my story and I’m sticking with it. LOL!
So this week I need to search the Internet (I’ve been doing a lot of that this week!) for a favorite villain and tell you why I chose that one. I’m going to go with a “Flamboyant Bond Baddie” who was set loose to test Bond’s skills and sexuality not quite a year ago in Skyfall!
I chose Javier Bardem as my spur of the moment subject this week because he’s a blond in a trench coat. I’m not too particular as to hair color, but I just love trench coats on a man. IMOHO, trench coats are so sexy on a man! (And I LIKE sexy men!) 😉
I say he tested James’ “sexuality,” because 007 would be subject to Silva’s (as portrayed by Bardem) blatant show of homoerotism, which left Bond and the audience to guess as to Silva’s sexual orientation. Although hints of homoerotism in the bad guys has been much a part of the Bond franchise’s 50 year history, the Internet also told me, “Javier Bardem pushes the gay envelope farther than it’s ever been pushed before.” Which COULD make him the best villain in that category?
What do you think? Is it okay to see a villain as “sexy”?
