The 49-year-old actor on Sunday shared a shot on Instagram in which he was posed in the outfit of his character from the 1985’s The Goonies, which marked the accomplished actor’s first role.
The Santa Monica, California native said he was attending an ’80’s themed birthday for [his] buddy’ and ‘didn’t know what to dress as,’ milling options such as Henry Rollins, Boy George or a Gremlin.
Thankfully, Brolin said, his beautiful spouse Kathryn Boyd, who was dressed in an 80s-style leotard in the social media shot, told him, ‘I got you covered,’ coming up with the ingenious throwback outfit of the actor’s ash grey top with cutoff sleeves, blue shorts over sweats and a red bandanna while pulling an old school set of spiral metal resistance bands.
The Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps actor, in an August 2014 appearance on Jimmy Fallon, called the family comedy ‘an amazing thing,’ adding he would be up to do a sequel to the film, which co-starred Sean Astin and Corey Feldman.
‘You do a movie like that, and you don’t know how it’s gonna turn out,’ he said.
Then you’re sick of hearing it after 20 years because you haven’t done a film that’s any good, that’s actually matched The Goonies.
The No Country for Old Men actor said in the interview that despite a career that spans more than three decades, some fans still recognize him exclusively from the 80s film.
He said: ‘You’re walking down the street, and 20 years later, they’re going, “Goonies, dude!” And you go, “Thanks!” And they go, “Are you still acting?”‘.
