Javier Bardem Really Wants To Ride A Sandworm In ‘Dune: Part Two’

January 14, 2022

Javier Bardem is receiving a ton of recognition for his role as Desi Arnaz opposite Nicole Kidman’s Lucille Ball in Being the Ricardos, but that film wasn’t the Spanish actor’s only acclaimed credit of 2021.

Bardem recently sat down to chat with Deadline, where he discussed the challenges of bringing Arnaz to life. Him being a real individual and still commanding a lot of respect as one of the oldest icons in the industry, it must have been quite demanding for Bardem to portray Arnaz as transparently as he was. Dune Stilgar, meanwhile, is a different beast.
