Few movies slated to be released in 2013 are as highly anticipated as Ridley Scott’s The Counselor. It stars an amazing cast (Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, to name a few), it’s helmed by a very talented director, and is based on a script by Cormac McCarthy (The Road, No Country for Old Men).
While a few set photos have been bouncing around the internet, we haven’t seen any of Javier Bardem‘s character, Reiner. That all changes today as Hollywood.com has tracked down a grainy, unofficial photo of the actor on set, and here it is in all its glory.
While we know that Reiner isn’t a psychopathic mass murderer, we have heard that The Counselor is like No Country for Old Men but on steroids. So, you can be assured that Reiner has a violent streak. Judging from the photo below, Bardem looks crazier than ever.
I’m a big fan of Cormac McCarthy’s work, as well as some of Scott’s films. Couple that with the fantastic cast on hand here and it seems a perfect storm could be brewing. Though the photo below isn’t much, it does do enough to whet my appetite as we wait for a trailer.
Check out the photo of Javier Bardem below and let us know what you think.
