Brolin is nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the 81st Academy Awards for portraying Dan White in Milk.
It feels surreal. I just got a call from Javier Bardem in Spain and he was flipping out and screaming. The reality is I got up at 5:55 here in Utah and looked at the clock and figured the nominations were announced and it didn’t happen. I said to myself, ‘That’s OK. I can deal with it.’ Then I realized there’s a one-hour time difference.
The Guardian interviews Brolin about why he fought with producers to let him grow a goatee for the film Labor Day.
For some reason, my face, when I have a goatee, is pretty f-cking scary. Even just in my life, I can see how it affects people. I mean, I don’t have tattoos any more. I used to have a lot of tattoos. And I remember being in business meetings with these dumb jailhouse tattoos and I would see how people reacted. They were always very freaked out.
Fallon and Brolin talk about Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and Josh reminisces about the 30th anniversary of his first film, The Goonies.
