[First Look] Javier Bardem Gets Strange on Set of Ridley Scott’s ‘The Counselor’

Written by on September 18, 2012 

I thought those shots of Brad Pitt all cowboy-ed up on the set of The Counselor were good, but this is on a whole other level. While unofficial and, unsurprisingly, a blurry & grainy item, Hollywood.com managed to dig up a shot of Javier Bardem during the shoot of Ridley Scott‘s newest film — and, boy, is it a killer.

Not the character, exactly (though he’s got a violent streak), but the look of a sandblasted personal trainer who operates on Brazilian beaches for a notable fee. Bardem‘s character, Reiner, is a drug dealer who causes come real trouble for Michael Fassbender‘s titular lawyer-cum-pusher; needless to say, I wasn’t expecting that trouble to be so garish, yet I’m kind of in love with this all the same. Remembering how he looks in Skyfall and combining it with what we’re seeing here, the possibilities for this character are sort of endless, thus making one anticipated film an even bigger event.

I’ll leave the rest of the comments up to you:

The Counselor also stars Penélope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Dean Norris, Rosie Perez, John Leguizamo, Natalie Dormer, and Goran Višnjić, none of whom will be able to battle the work on display here.

Are you fond of what’s being shown here? Baffled?
