Bardem for Brolin on Wall Street sequel
There has been a slight casting change when it comes to the Wall Street sequel. Javier Bardem had been due to play the villain of the piece, but he has passed on the role.
No sooner has that happened though, than someone else is apparently in the running for the role.
Now though Javier Bardem has said that he won't be taking the Wall Street role. He has decided instead to star opposite Julia Roberts in Eat, Pray, Love. A film based on a book about a woman's trip to Italy, where she hopes to find meaning to her life. Just my opinion, but I'd rather see Bardem playing a dubious hedge fund manager. The news of his change of heart comes from Forbes, through Jo Blo.
A possible replacement for Bardem might be getting an offer in the next few hours though. Nikki Finke, through Collider, says that Josh Brolin may well be receiving an offer to play the role Bardem was originally offered.
I guess it won't make a huge difference in the long run. I'm still kind of excited about this film. But I reckon Bardem would have played an excellent financial villain. Is there anyone else you would rather replace him?
