Josh James Brolin (born February 12, 1968 in Santa Monica, California) is an American actor.

The son of actor James Brolin, Josh made his screen debut at the age of 17 in The Goonies but despite working consistently on TV and film, didn't gain any widespread recognition until 2007, where he had one hell of a breakout year: key roles in Grindhouse, American Gangster, In the Valley of Elah, and the Oscar-winning No Country for Old Men all showcased his considerable talent and rugged charms. He followed 2007 up with two more acclaimed performances in 2008: W. and Milk, earning an Academy Award nomination for the latter, which upped his status in Hollywood even more.

He is most known as the ultimate villain of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Infinity Saga, Thanos the Mad Titan, starting with Guardians of the Galaxy and culminating with Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. He's also appeared as another Marvel character, this time heroic but not set in the same universe, portraying Cable in Deadpool 2.

Often Typecast as rugged badass characters from the South or Southwest.
