Trivia that mentions this person:
Terminator Salvation [2009]
  • Josh Brolin was asked to play Marcus Wright, but he turned it down.
    Men In Black 3 [2012]
  • Agent J travels from 2012 to 1969, 43 years into the past. He wakes up and sees a young Agent K, played by Josh Brolin. Brolin is only 21 years and 5 months younger than Tommy Lee Jones, who plays the older Agent K.
  • Although playing a main character and prominently billed, Josh Brolin does not appear in the movie until 42 minutes in, which is more than 1/3 of the way through the running time.
    Guardians of the Galaxy [2014]
  • Josh Brolin is uncredited and in fact was the last person cast. He was offered the role while filming Everest (2015). He based the characterization of Thanos primarily on Marlon Brando's role of Kurtz in Apocalypse Now (1979).
    Beauty and the Beast [2017]
  • Robert Pattinson was briefly considered for the role of the Beast. According to some early sources, Josh Brolin was rumored to be considered for the role of the Beast, but it's likely that he was deemed too old for the part.
    Avengers: Infinity War [2018]
  • Josh Brolin acted this scene with a foam headpiece that was the size of Thanos' head, with a camera on his face for VFX. He also had to wear various foam parts depending on what the scene called for so the other actors didn't get too close to his real body, and so Thanos' scale was retained.
  • Josh Brolin based his characterization on Marlon Brando's role as Colonel Walter Kurtz in Apocalypse Now.
  • Josh Brolin claimed that he did not see Black Panther until a week before this film opened due to it being constantly sold out in L.A. Brolin added that stars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe don't receive any special privileges of screening passes to the franchise.
    Deadpool 2 [2018]
  • The film takes many potshots at the Barbra Streisand film Yentl. Streisand is Josh Brolin's stepmother.
  • In one scene, Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) refers to Cable (Josh Brolin) as One-Eyed Willy, when he says, "Bring it on, One Eyed Willy." One-Eyed Willy was the pirate character in The Goonies, which also starred Josh Brolin.
  • Josh Brolin signed a four-film deal to play Cable, and described his appearance here as just the introduction for the character, with "three more movies to reveal more."
    Men in Black: International [2019]
  • Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson (Agents H and M) and Kumail Nanjiani (Pawny) are the eighth, ninth and tenth cast members to appear in both the ["Men in Black"] and the Marvel Cinematic Universe films (Hemsworth and Thomspon play Thor and Valkryie, and Nanjiani plays Kingo in Eternals (2020)).
    The previous cast members were: Tommy Lee Jones (Agent K, Colonel Phillips), Vincent D'Onofrio (Edgar the Bug, Wilson Fisk), Rosario Dawson (Laura, Claire Temple), Josh Brolin (Young Agent K, Thanos), Mike Colter (Colonel Edwards, Luke Cage), Michael Stuhlbarg (Griffin the Unicorn, Nicodemus West) and Alice Eve (Young Agent O, Typhoid Mary).
