JOSH BROLIN (Bretton James) continues to emerge as a powerful, sought after film actor willing to take on challenging roles in both major studio productions as well as independents.

Brolin has been nominated for an Academy Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award® and has received awards from both the New York Film Critics Circle and the National Board of Review for his portrayal of Dan White in Gus Van Sant's acclaimed film "Milk,” opposite Sean Penn. Brolin also received rave reviews for his portrayal of George W. Bush in director Oliver Stone's biopic "W.”

He recently starred as the title character in "Jonah Hex,” about a bounty hunter (Brolin) who is tasked with tracking down a posse and its feared leader. He also recently wrapped production on Woody Allen's Untitled Comedy starring opposite Anthony Hopkins, Naomi Watts, Frida Pinto and Antonio Bandaras, due for release later this year.

Brolin produced, along with Chris Moore, Anthony Arnove, and Howard Zinn, a documentary entitled "The People Speak,” based on the latter's influential 1980 book A People's History of the United States. The feature, which aired last December on the History Channel, looks at America's struggles with war, class, race and women's rights; appearing in the documentary will be Matt Damon, Viggo Mortensen, Sean Penn, and David Strathairn, among others.

Brolin starred in Joel and Ethan Coen's "No Country for Old Men,” which won four Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director; and in Ridley Scott's blockbuster "American Gangster.” Brolin was a Screen Actors Guild Award nominee as part of the ensemble for the latter film, and was honored with a Screen Actors Guild Award as part of the winning ensemble for the former.

In early 2008, his film directing debut, a short entitled "X,” which he also wrote and produced, premiered at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival before screening at such festivals as South by Southwest and the AFI Dallas Film Festival.

Brolin made his feature film debut starring in the action-comedy "Goonies,” directed by Richard Donner for producer Steven Spielberg, and has since appeared in several successful films including: Paul Verhoeven's blockbuster hit "Hollow Man,” with Kevin Bacon, and Jim Stern's controversial film "All the Rage,” which made its debut at the 1999 Toronto Film Festival, featuring an all-star cast including Gary Sinise, Joan Allen, Giovanni Ribisi, and Anna Paquin.

Brolin received recognition from critics and audiences in David O. Russell's "Flirting with Disaster,” in which he appeared with an outstanding ensemble cast including Ben Stiller, Patricia Arquette, Tea Leoni, Mary Tyler Moore, George Segal, Alan Alda, Lily Tomlin and Richard Jenkins. Additional film credits include "Planet Terror,” part of the critically acclaimed Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez double feature "Grindhouse,” alongside co-stars Rose McGowan and Freddy Rodriguez; "In the Valley of Elah” for director Paul Haggis; Victor Nunez's "Coastlines,” which premiered at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival, opposite Timothy Olyphant; Scott Silver's "Mod Squad,” opposite Claire Danes; Ole Bornedal's psychological thriller "Nightwatch,” with Nick Nolte, Patricia Arquette, and Ewan McGregor; "Best Laid Plans” opposite Reese Witherspoon and Alessandro Nivola, produced by Mike Newell; Guillermo Del Toro's science-fiction thriller "Mimic,” opposite Mira Sorvino, Jeremy Northam, and Charles Dutton; and John Stockwell's "Into the Blue,” where Brolin starred opposite Jessica Alba.

Brolin made his mark in television as a series regular in the popular ABC show "The Young Riders” as well as on "Private Eye” for NBC and "Winnetka Road” for CBS. Brolin received critical praise for his work in the TNT's epic miniseries "Into the West,” opposite Beau Bridges, Gary Busey and Jessica Capshaw. In addition, Brolin starred in the title role of NBC's acclaimed political drama "Mr. Sterling.” The show followed the efforts of an idealistic young politician as he attempted to both learn and work within a corrupt system.

Brolin spent five years with Anthony Zerbe at the Reflections Festival at the GeVa Theatre in Rochester, New York. While there, he performed in and directed several of the festival's plays. Brolin also starred opposite Elias Koteas in the acclaimed Broadway production of Sam Shepard's "True West.” In 2004, Brolin starred in the award-winning Off-Broadway play "The Exonerated,” based on the true stories of a half-dozen former death row inmates.
