February 12: Happy Birthday Josh Brolin and Darren Aronofsky


Our two headliners today have never worked together but I was still able to find a picture of them together (with Marion Cotillard in between).

Josh Brolin turns 49 today.  He made his acting debut as Brand Walsh in The Goonies and in the late 1980s starred as Wild Bill Hickock on ABC’s The Young Riders.  Despite a solid beginning and an industry background (actor James Brolin is his father), Brolin’s career seemed to be making little progress for a long time—the best parts he could get seemed to be supporting roles in lesser films.
