Through successes with theatre, television, film, and some decent NYSE moves, this Goonie has certainly had quite the career. Let’s take a look below!


The Early Years

Josh Brolin (49) was born in Santa Monica, California to Jane Cameron, a wildlife activist, and actor James Brolin. Brolin was raised on a ranch in Templeton, California with little exposure to his father’s acting career though he became interested in acting after taking an improv acting class in high school. His parents divorced when he was 16 years old, and in 1998 his father married his third wife, singer/actress Barbra Streisand.

1985-1996

Brolin started his career in TV films and guest roles on TV shows before getting a more notable role as Brand Walsh in the Richard Donner-directed film The Goonies (1985). He and Johnny Depp were finalists for the role of Tom Hanson in the series 21 Jump Street, but Depp’s a hard man to beat out. The role was ultimately awarded to Captain Jack Sparrow, but he and Brolin became close and remained friends after the brief television competition.

Brolin implied that he turned away from film for years after the premiere of his second film, Thrasin’ (1986), where he said he did a “horrendous” acting job. In 1988, he married his first wife, actress Alice Adair. They have two children, Trevor Mansur (born 1988) and Eden (born 1994), and later divorced in 1994. After going on his film hiatus, Brolin retreated to Rochester, NY to act on stage and reinvent his theatrical roots. He then moved onto one of his more prominent roles early in his career as Wild Bill Hickok in the ABC western TV series The Young Riders, which lasted three seasons (1989–92).

1996-2006

In 1996, he returned to film alongside Christian Slater in Bed of Roses. In the 90’s and into the early 2000’s, Brolin established himself as a talented actor and was cast by several notable directors as a result. He was cast by David O. Russell in Flirting With Disaster (1996), by Guillermo del Toro in Mimic (1997), and by Woody Allen in Melinda and Melinda (2005). It was also during this time that he had a short and publicised 6-month engagement to actress Minnie Driver. He later married actress Diane Lane in 2004, but the couple split in 2013.

2007-Present

Brolin’s brilliance as an actor was solidified in 2007 in the Coen brother’s classic, No Country for Old Men. In the film, Brolin plays the role of Llewelyn Moss, a welder and Vietnam veteran who flees with two million dollars in drug money that he finds in a field in Texas. He received great critical acclaim for his portrayal, and as a result, the offers for more work with incredible casts and directors rolled in. In the following years Brolin would work with Ridley Scott and Denzel Washington in American Gangster, Gus Van Sant and Sean Penn in Milk, for which he was given an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor, the Coen Brothers again in True Grit and Hail, Caesar!, and Paul Thomas Anderson in Inherent Vice. 

More recently, Brolin’s been taking his talents to the superhero circuit, playing the role of Thanos in the Marvel Universe. He made appearances as the character in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) and Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) while reprising the character in a starring role for Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and another upcoming Avengers film in 2019. In April 2017, Brolin signed a four-film contract with 20th Century Fox studios to portray the Marvel Comics character Nathan Summers / Cable in the X-Men film series. Deadpool 2 will be the first installment of that contract.

To top it all off, in 2016, Brolin married his former assistant and model Kathryn Boyd.
