Born: February 12, 1968
Rugged features and a natural charm have worked for Josh Brolin, the son of actor James Brolin. He has played roles as a policeman, a hunter, and the President of the United States.
Brolin was born February 12, 1968, in Santa Monica, California, to Jane Cameron (Agee), a Texas-born wildlife activist, and James Brolin. Josh was not interested at first in the lifestyle of the entertainment business, in light of his parents’ divorce and both of them being actors. However, during his junior year of high school, he took an acting class to see what it was like. He played Stanley in “A Streetcar Named Desire” and became hooked. His first major screen role was as the older brother in the 1985 film The Goonies, based on a story by Steven Spielberg. He then immediately moved on to work on television, taking roles in such series as Private Eye: The Pilot (1987) and Young Riders (1989). “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.
Josh Brolin’s 5 most popular quotes
- Folks can believe what they like but eventually a man’s got to declare if he’s going to do what is right.

- The only way change will ever happen is if we speak up, and we have to know that it actually has an impact. Because we have a lot more power than we think we do, I think.
- It’s probably a bit of a power trip when you befriend somebody enough that they trust you to tell you things.
- I only took a high school acting class because there was no other class I wanted to take. I loved it, but I was always against acting as a profession. I didn’t like the monetary fluctuations I saw.
