Javier Bardem in ‘Skyfall’ + Stuart Smalley – Dead Ringers?

Dead Ringer Skyfall
Sony Pictures/NBC

This new ‘Skyfall’ trailer was the first we’ve seen of Javier Bardem’s look as the new Bond villain. And when we finally saw his look, we thought it looked very familiar… Like maybe he was good enough, smart enough and doggone it, people like him.

After a second it came to us: Javier Bardem’s villain in ‘Skyfall’ looks just like Stuart Smalley, the popular mid-90s ‘SNL’ character. Created by now-U.S. Senator Al Franken, Smalley was a character who hosted a cable access show and gave guests (and himself) “daily affirmations” that usually ended with his catchphrase “and that’s….okay.”

The character was adapted into the 1995 movie ‘Stuart Saves His Family’ but unlike ‘Wayne’s World’ was not a big hit and the character wasn’t heard from much…until now.
