Yes, that's Spanish actor Javier Bardem, with blonde hair and what appears to be a police officer's uniform, walking onto the set of the next James Bond film, now filming in the U.K.

Not much is known about Bardem's character, called Silva. Entertainment Weekly fixated on the blonde hair, remarking on how different it is from his pageboy 'do in "No Country for Old Men."

Movieline was interested in the police uniform, noting that Heath Ledger's The Joker also wore a police outfit to hide in plain sight in "The Dark Knight."

And The Daily Mail didn't care about Bardem's character, but did dig up some photos that seem to show Bond returning to an ancestral home or church, complete with gravestones marking his ancestors' final resting places.

"Skyfall" is set to hit U.S. theaters in November.
