JOSH BROLIN (Jonah Hex) is an award winning actor/producer/director, with a career spanning film, stage and television. In 2008, he garnered nominations for an Academy Award®, Screen Actors Guild Award® and received awards from the New York Film Critics Circle and the National Board of Review for his memorable portrayal of Dan White in Gus Van Sant's acclaimed film "Milk." Brolin also received rave reviews for his portrayal of George W. Bush in Oliver Stone's controversial biopic "W." In 2007, he earned a Screen Actors Guild Award® as part of an ensemble for his work in Joel and Ethan Coen's "No Country for Old Men," which won four Academy Awards® including Best Picture and Best Director. Brolin also starred in Ridley Scott's 2007 blockbuster "American Gangster," alongside Denzel Washington. The film received a Golden Globe nomination for best picture and Brolin was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award® as part of the ensemble.

Brolin has several diverse upcoming films slated for release this year. He re-teamed with Oliver Stone for the highly anticipated "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," opposite Shia LaBeouf and Michael Douglas, in theatres September 24th.

Additionally, Brolin co-stars as a ruthless killer opposite Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon in the Coen brothers' remake of the classic film "True Grit," in theatres on Christmas Day.

Brolin made his feature film debut starring in Richard Donner's classic action-comedy "Goonies," produced by Steven Spielberg. It was his portrayal of a bisexual federal agent in director David O.

On stage, Brolin 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 former death row inmates. His additional stage credits include "Skin of the Teeth," "The Crucible" and "A Streetcar Named Desire" at the Kennedy Memorial Theatre; "A Midsummer Night's Dream" at the Lebrero Theatre; and "Dark of the Moon" at the Ann Capa Ensemble Theatre. He also spent five years with Anthony Zerbe at the Reflections Festival at the GeVa Theatre in Rochester, New York, performing in and directing several of the festival's plays, including "Pitz and Joe," "Life in the Trees," "Forgiving Typhoid Mary," "Oh, The Innocents," "Peep Hole," "Ellen Universe Joins the Band," "Lincoln Park Zoo" and "Hard Hearts."

In early 2008, Brolin made his film directing debut with a short entitled "X," which he also wrote and produced. It premiered at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival before screening at such festivals as South by Southwest and the AFI Dallas Film Festival. He also directed the behind-the-scenes documentary for the "No Country for Old Men" DVD.

In 2009, Brolin served as executive producer, along with Matt Damon, Chris Moore, Anthony Arnove, and Howard Zinn, on the documentary which aired on the History Channel entitled "The People Speak," based on Howard Zinn's influential 1980 book A People's History of the United States. Depicting America's struggles with war, class, race and women's rights, the film features readings by Viggo Mortensen, Sean Penn, and David Strathairn, among others.

Brolin made his mark early in television, starring in several series including ABC's popular "The Young Riders"; the acclaimed political drama "Mr. Sterling," and "Private Eye" for NBC; and CBS' "Winnetka Road." Brolin received critical praise for his performance in TNT's epic miniseries "Into the West," opposite Beau Bridges, Gary Busey and Jessica Capshaw; co-starred opposite Mary Steenburgen, Gretchen Mol and Bonnie Bedelia in the adaptation of William Inge's Pulitzer Prize-winning play "Picnic," and "Prison of Children" for CBS; and the Showtime original film "Gang in Blue."

He'll next be seen in "Secretariat," reuniting with director Randall Wallace, and Robert Schwecke's "Red," with Bruce Willis and Morgan Freeman, both to be released this fall, as well as Michael Bay's "Transformers 3" releasing next year.

Malkovich has appeared on the big screen in over 70 feature films, including the Coen brothers' comedy "Burn After Reading"; "Changeling," for director Clint Eastwood; Robert Zemeckis' "Beowulf"; Spike Jonzes' "Being John Malkovich," which earned Malkovich the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Supporting Actor; John Dahl's "Rounders"; "The Man In the Iron Mask" for director Randall Wallace; Simon West's "Con Air"; "The Portrait of a Lady" for director Jane Campion; Wolfgang Petersen's "In the Line of Fire;" which garnered Malkovich a Best Supporting Actor Academy Award® nomination; Gary Sinise's "Of Mice and Men"; Bernardo Bertolucci's "The Sheltering Sky"; "Dangerous Liaisons" for director Stephen Frears; Steven Spielberg's "Empire of the Sun"; Paul Newman's "The Glass Menagerie"; "The Killing Fields" for director Roland Joffé; and Robert Benton's "Places in the Heart," for which Malkovich received a Best Supporting Actor Academy Award® nomination as well as Best Supporting Actor Awards from the National Society of Film Critics and the National Board of Review.

Currently, Malkovich is producing the feature film "Jeff Who Lives at Home," starring Susan Sarandon, through his banner Mr. Mudd, which most recently produced the highly acclaimed independent film "Juno," nominated for three Academy® Awards, including Best Motion Picture, Best Actress and Best Director. The film won an Academy Award® for Best Original Screenplay. Malkovich first produced "Ghost World," directed by Terry Zwigoff, through the company, followed by his own feature directorial debut, "The Dancer Upstairs," starring Academy Award® winner Javier Bardem. Other films produced through Mr. Mudd include "The Libertine," starring Johnny Depp and Samantha Morton and "Art School Confidential," also directed by Zwigoff and written by screenwriter/cartoonist Dan Clowes.

Malkovich's work on stage began in 1976, when he became a charter member of the groundbreaking Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago. He moved to New York City in 1982 to appear in a Steppenwolf production of the Sam Shepard play "True West," for which he won an Obie Award. Malkovich then directed a Steppenwolf co-production, the 1984 revival of Lanford Wilson's "Balm in Gilead," for which he received a second Obie Award and a Drama Desk Award. His Broadway debut was that year as Biff in "Death of a Salesman," alongside Dustin Hoffman as Willy.

In late 2008, Malkovich directed Zach Helm's play "The Good Canary," starring Diego Luna and produced by Mr. Mudd and Mexico's Canana. Enjoying a 15-week sold-out run touring through several major Mexican cities, its critical acclaim and financial success set a new precedent in Mexican theater.

Malkovich's mark in television includes his Emmy Award-winning performance in the telefilm "Death of a Salesman," directed by Volker Schloendorff and reuniting him with Dustin Hoffman, reprising their stage roles. Other notable credits include the miniseries "Les Meserables," as well as "Napoleon" and the acclaimed HBO telefilm "RKO 281," the latter two garnering Emmy Award nominations for Malkovich.
