Josh Brolin is the son of famous actor James Brolin, and was raised on a ranch in Templeton, California. His parents divorced when he was a teenager, and subsequently Barbra Streisand became his stepmother after his father remarried. While attending high school, Josh discovered his interest in acting after taking an improvisational acting class. Before getting his first notable role, his career was developing in TV films and shows, until during the 1980s, he secured his debut role as Brand Walsh in “The Goonies” (1985) an American adventure-comedy film directed by Richard Donner. However, Brolin claimed that he refused to do film acting for several years after his second film “Thrashin’” (1986), because he was dissatisfied with his acting. During the late 80s he met Johnny Depp, when the two were finalists for a role in the TV series “21 Jump Street”. The role was eventually given to Depp but the actors have remained close friends ever since. One of Josh’s more important roles in his early career was in the TV series “The Young Riders” (1989–92).

Brolin’s film work is based mostly on villainous roles during the late 2000s and early 2010s, including films such as “Planet Terror” (2007), “Milk” (2008), “American Gangster” (2007) and “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” (2010). His performance in “No Country For Old Men” (2007) won him several awards and nominations, some of which include National Board of Review Award and New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Supporting Actor as well as nominations for Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. Brolin also portrayed President George W. Bush in the film called “W.” in 2008. Another important role came in Gus Van Sant’s “Milk” in which he acted alongside Sean Penn, and apart from being nominated for an Oscar, Brolin received NYFCC and NBR Awards for Best Supporting Actor, thus increasing his net worth. In 2012, Josh played Agent K in “Men in Black3”, and a year later starred in “Gangster Squad” in the role of John O’Mara.

Although in the background in comparison to acting, his career as a writer and director has also added to Brolin’s net worth. In 2009, he was the executive producer as well as performing in the documentary film “The People Speak”, and shortly after wrote and directed a short film “X”, making it his directing debut and the opening film of the Union City International Film Festival in Union City, New Jersey in 2010.
