Last night I watched "No Country For Old Men". Loved it. The ending was rather abrupt, but the movie was excellent and confirmed my low for gnarly old coot Tommy Lee Jones. This was also the first time I'd seen Javier Bardem in a movie and afterwards I was thinking about his peculiar "look": everything about him is so big. Big eyes, big nose, big chin, big head... and it came to me that he would make a really, really good Beorn. Built big and heavy and with a deep voice, acting skills aplenty. Of course I have no idea if he'd be interested in a fantasy movie, but Del Toro is Spanish as well... so you never know!
I mean, just look at this picture of him from imdb.com! If that's not a Beorn in the making, I don't know who is!
