The strength of Javier Bardem's evil role

Posted on

When the Coen brothers’ take on the Cormac McCarthy novel premiered at Cannes, audiences were stunned by Bardem’s terrifying portrayal of Chigurh, a conscienceless killing machine hellbent on retrieving $2 million in drug money. With Tommy Lee Jones’ sheriff in pursuit, Chigurh plows through Texas, racking up bodies with a cattle stun gun. ”It’s not something I especially like, killing people — even in movies,” says Bardem. ”When the Coens called, I said, ‘Listen, I’m the wrong actor. I don’t drive, I speak bad English, and I hate violence.’ They laughed and said, ‘Maybe that’s why we called you.”’ It was a good choice: This chilling look at the nature of evil might just score Bardem, who was nominated in 2001 for Before Night Falls, his second Best Actor nod.
