There's one movie, however, he hopes never comes across his table.
"Why do people want there to be a Goonies sequel?" asks the actor, reasonably. "There's two ways it could go â€" to me, it'd be interesting to see a sequel because it's been so long, 23 years or something. So now, you'd have me, a 40-year-old guy whose probably drinking now, chain-smokingâ€¦ I don't fuckin' know (Laughs).
But to me, the whole idea of going from "I love The Goonies, which is a classic" to "I love The Goonies, what a classic, but did you see the new one?" ....You know what I mean?"
Brolin is signed on, however, for Milk. He'll star alongside Sean Penn.
"Yeah. I'm really happy about that. I've had a lot of scripts come across that are edible, and I've been reading them all, and I read Milk and I think Sean [Penn], who I've known for a while, kinda lobbied for me to do it. I think Matt Damon was supposed to do it, but he left. I read it and I just loved it man. There was no question.
A lot of the scripts you read you're asking yourself â€˜is this really going to come together? Will they change some of the dialogue?'â€¦ This script is just perfect. It's an amazing story that should be told. It's Sean, it's Gus Van Sant, and it's Emile Hirsch â€" who I love â€" so it's all good. But I'm basically doing it for free â€" these great roles, I don't get paid shit. I don't know why."
