Josh Brolin, Hollywood’s reigning provider of settled machismo, a poet and a very good egg on a personal basis, has manned up and crossed the sober Rubicon. The evidence had begun to accumulate (exhibit #1, exhibit #2)\. He knew that this shit would compromise and diminish everything one way or another. Sobriety is clarity, control, serenity. Hollywood Elsewhere offers crisp salute, bows in respect.
