Josh Brolin, like many A-listers working today, has now found a home on the small screen. According to a report from Deadline, the actor has signed on to star in the upcoming Amazon series “Outer Range,” which finds Brolin attempting to solve a mystery.
“Outer Range” stars Brolin as Royal Abbott, a Wyoming rancher, that is trying to keep his life in order, with his family and his work, when everything is complicated by an unknown force that was discovered on his land. The series is written by playwright Brian Watkins and produced by Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment.
You’d be hard-pressed to find an actor with as eclectic a filmography as Brolin. He’s an actor that can star in pulpy comic book films such as “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” while also starring in a Coen Brothers film (“Hail Caesar!”) and a Paul Thomas Anderson project (“Inherent Vice”). Oh yeah, and let’s not forget about his incredible role in both “Sicario” films, as well as the recent superhero blockbusters “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame,” where he plays a 9-foot tall purple alien hellbent on killing half the universe.
Brolin’s next feature might be his most-anticipated yet, as he’s set to star in the all-star cast of Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune,” which arrives in theaters this December. In addition to that, there’s always the threat that he could return as Cable in “Deadpool 3” or “X-Force” (if that ever gets made). Silly us, we almost forgot to mention that he’s going to star in Steven Soderbergh’s next project, “Kill Switch.” Needless to say, he’s a busy guy.
“Outer Range” is one of many new series coming to Amazon’s Prime Video streaming service that finds a high-profile actor starring. This seems to be the new norm for A-listers, as the creative freedom of streamers seems to be awfully attractive.
