There’s getting into character… And then there’s getting into trouble. Okay, so maybe Josh Brolin wasn’t hitting the sauce as part of his research while he shoots the role of George W Bush in Oliver Stone’s new biopic, but his most recent time in a bar landed him – say the news cliché with us, folks – behind bars.
Seems, Brolin, co-star Jeffrey Wright and some unnamed crewmembers were enjoying their time at the Stray Cat bar in Shreveport, Louisiana, where the movie’s being shot, when one of the crew got a little rowdy. The police were called and Brolin and Wright, among others, attempted to intervene. Which landed them in the slammer. Brolin was booked and posted bail that night – hardly the stuff of movie-making legend, but probably not the sort of PR Stone needs for the likely controversial movie.
