won an Academy Award for "No Country for Old Men," in which he played one of the scariest baddies in cinematic history. Now, the Spanish star is back to his villainous ways in the upcoming James Bond flick, "Skyfall," and he looks a lot more blond than we've ever seen him before.

The first photos from the film set have leaked online, and they show Bardem, who reportedly plays a villain named Silva (obsessed with world destruction, natch), looking anything but evil as a London police officer in disguise.
Little is known about the plot, except that Bond's MI6 agency is under attack and "007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost."
Bardem isn't the only Oscar winner associated with "Skyfall." Dame Judi Dench returns as M, and Sam Mendes ("American Beauty") will serve as director. The film also features five-time Oscar nominee Albert Finney and two-time nominee Ralph Fiennes. Not to mention the man we're all counting on to save the world, Daniel Craig as James Bond.
If blond hair if good enough for 007, why wouldn't it also work for his nemesis?
"Skyfall," the 23rd Bond movie, hits theaters in November.
