He’s been in plenty of great movies, but Josh Brolin is not the kind of actor who sticks out. In fact, that’s one of his great skills as an actor. He’s versatile and seems as comfortable playing a giant purple alien in a Marvel movie as he is playing a Hollywood fixer for the Coen brothers. He can play a villain or a hero and do both incredibly well.
His best performances showcase how versatile he can be as an actor, and this list as a whole proves him to be one of Hollywood’s best. In honor of Outer Range, his new series on Amazon Prime Video, these are his best performances.
