josh brolin seeks substance abuse rehab

Josh Brolin has entered a rehab facility in Northern California for treatment of substance abuse following a series of altercations in early November.

According to Us Weekly, "He realized he needed help and is committed to his sobriety."

Brolin was involved in a "drunken fist fight" at O'Brien's Irish Pub at 2:00 a.m. in Santa Monica on Nov. 2.  TMZ posted a video of that dust up as well as footage from a verbal altercation that same weekend between Brolin and a cab driver.

On Nov. 4, Brolin told TMZ that he deeply regretted his recent actions.  When asked if he was planning to scale back his drinking, he stated emphatically, "Absolutely, it won't be happening again.  That's it.  Completely done."

The 45-year-old actor split with his actress wife Diane Lane in February and they are in the process of ending their eight year union.

His latest film, 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,' is slated to hit U.S. theaters in August 2014.  The ensemble cast includes Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Stacy Keach, Lady Gaga, Ray Liotta, Jeremy Piven, Mickey Rourke and Juno Temple.

Josh is the son of actor James Brolin and the step-son of Barbra Streisand.

josh brolin arrested

'Men in Black 3' actor Josh Brolin spent four hours behind bars on Jan. 2 after being arrested in Santa Monica on a charge of public drunkenness.

The 44-year-old celeb, the son of actor James Brolin, was partying with a couple of his pals and things simply go out of hand when the group started having way "too much fun."

Josh was booked Wednesday at 3:02 a.m. and later released after posting $250 bail at 7:14 a.m.  His rep confirmed that the allegations were true and that Brolin will not be required to appear in court.

The husband of actress Diane Lane, since 2004, will appear on the big screen next week when his latest project, 'Gangster Squad,' hits theaters.  Co-stars include Ryan Gosling, Sean Penn, Nick Nolte and Emma Stone.

george and laura bush biopic

Elizabeth Banks and Josh Brolin play George Bush and Laura Bush in the upcoming biopic W.  Banks is very impressed with our nations First Lady and thinks that her beauty is underrated.

Banks was at Manhattan's Gramercy Park Hotel on Monday night, where Women's Health magazine honored the 34 year old actress who graces their October cover.  When asked about Laura Bush, she said:

"For some reason, I don't think people appreciate just how beautiful a woman that she is.  I think it's partially just because I think she needs a mini makeover - but if she were wearing super stylish Phillip Lim dresses and had long blonde hair, I think you'd really be stunned just how gorgeous a woman she is.  She has everything that goes into a great face: great cheekbones, beautiful eyes, great smile."

Banks had this to say about Josh Brolin's portrayal of George W. Bush:
"He is perfectly cast.  I mean, people forget that he is a sort of cowboy who went into the same profession as his own father and lived in his dad's shadow, and is now creating his own career outside of the family."

We followed most of what Banks had to say on the subject of Laura Bush but find it difficult to picture the First Lady in long blonde hair.

The Oliver Stone film about the life and presidency of Bush is set for release on October 17th.  Richard Dreyfuss portrays Dick Cheney and Thandie Newton plays Condoleezza Rice.
