Rugged features and a natural charm have worked for Josh Brolin, the son of actor James Brolin. He has recently seen a massive surge in his career, finding well-known roles such as a policeman, a hunter, and the President of the United States.

Brolin was initially against the lifestyle of the entertainment business, in light of his parents’ divorce, and both of them being actors. However, he fell for theatre after playing a part in a school production of “A Streetcar named Desire”. His first major screen role was as the older brother in the film The Goonies (1985) based on a story by Steven Spielberg. He then immediately moved on to work on television, taking roles in such series as “Private Eye” and “The Young Riders”. “Private Eye” was a chance for Brolin to play a detective. “The Young Riders” was set just before the Civil War, and was co-directed by Brolin’s father, James Brolin.

It was not until 2007 that Brolin received much acclaim for his films. He took a supporting role in the Quentin Tarantino-written Grindhouse (2007) which was a two-part film accounting two horror stories. He also played two policemen that year: a corrupt officer Trupo in the crime epic American Gangster (2007), and an honest police chief in the emotional drama In the Valley of Elah (2007) which starred Tommy Lee Jones and was directed by Paul Haggis. However, it was his involvement in No Country for Old Men (2007) that truly pushed him into the limelight.

The film, directed by the Coen brothers, was about a man (Brolin) who finds a satchel containing two million dollars in cash. He is pursued by an unstoppable assassin (Javier Bardem who won an Oscar for his work) and his friend, a local sheriff (Tommy Lee Jones). The film won four Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director.

Brolin found high-profile work the next year, being cast as Supervisor Dan White in the film Milk (2008/I) and will play the role of George W. Bush in the Oliver Stone film W (2009).

Despite his mediocre success and fame, Brolin has maintained a choosiness in his films, and recently, these choices have paid off profoundly. Hopefully he continues this streak of good fortune that his talents have finally given him.
