Josh Brolin As Jonah Hex

Posted by G-Man (34562 posts) - - Show Bio

We know that Megan Fox is playing some role in this movie.  We've seen those images.  But what about the lead character?  Will they do Jonah Hex justice?  Can Josh Brolin pull it off? 

Some images have been posted over at Lainey Gossip.  I believe this is our first look at what Jonah Hex will look like.  At least it's the first time I'm seeing him.  What do you think?



He looks good.  I've never been a huge Jonah Hex fan.  I can't say I'm overly excited about this, even if Megan Fox is in it.  But it has been a while since I've seen a good western.  Perhaps this will change that.

I think it looks great.  I am looking forward to this one, and have high hopes for it.  It may not be a potentail blockbuster, but with Brolin in it, I think it should do rather well.

His face isn't messed up enough to be Hex from the comics. I'm not a Hex reader but I know his face is far more jacked up than that.

Brolin is such a good manly actor.  Sometimes Im actually shocked that he's not MORE famous.

It's jacked up enough for me. That disfigurement would still gross me out a little in real life. But then again, I'm not too picky when it comes to adaptation.

Hellz yeah. As badass as Anton Chigurh was in, "No Country for Old Men" Josh Brolin's Llewelyn Moss was equally as bad. The dude can act. (I secretly wish Clint Eastwood was in his prime cause he'd be perfect for this role)

I like how it looks. Josh Brolin is a great actor so I have faith in his ability to bring JHex  to life. I'm not so excited about Megan Fox however. She is a hottie, but I can't say that I've ever been impressed by her ability to act.

They are probably going to add some digital effects to "enhance" it. I hope they do because you're right its not messed up as much as it is in the comics.

I'm a huge Jonah Hex fan so I am very excited about this.

@inferiorego: What about Two Face in Dark Knight, that was pretty sick

Not a huge Jonah Hex fan, but I think he looks great...

@The Law-man: I loved it, but I'm more into the actor portraying the character rather than the look, and I think Brolin is going to pull this off with no problem.

Josh Brolins always been a fav actor of mine among all the others. His role in No Country for Old Men was awesome cant wait to see how this is done.

Main reason I have faith in this is due to Josh Brolin, amazing actor

For the adaption the make-up is fine. Josh Brolin will wow you without his eye all popped out and his molars exposed.

I just pray that the film will be akin to a "Western" in its truest form.

I wonder why they didn't use green screen for half of his face like two-face did.

Looks Okie Dokie to me. Anymore jacked up and they'd have to make it CGI like they did Harvey in The Dark Knight. That would be ludicrously expensive and time consuming..

I think he looks great, and I think Brolin can pull it off.

seeing as how Jonah Hex is basically based off of every character Clint Eastwood ever played, it would be a surprise if he wast perfect for it:p

I really love the artist's rendition of Jonah here. Makeup is perfect. This is exactly how I pictured Jonah, only slightly younger.

Wasn't his right eye messed up along with his lip?
This does look pretty cool!!
