    "Ever since I've watched the Avengers: Infinity War, I instantly became a fan of Josh Brolin and looked for all of his best roles in films. So far, I think that his role as Matt Graver should be a little bit above on this list."

    "True Girt is a great movie to watch especially that the movie is star-studded. Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, and Josh Brolin? All in one film? Count the rising star Hailee Steinfeld in as well!"

    "I noticed something. Josh Brolin is mostly cast on biopics, doesn't he? I am near to conclude that the only non-biopic film he joined was the MCU films."
