What Happened To Josh Brolin Homeless Brother, Jess?

Josh Brolin Updates: Belonging to a family of three superstars, Jess Brolin has made himself quite infamous on the public front, in the past. The question is where is he these days?

The film industry has seen a history of families taking the entertainment world by storm. Children follow their famous parents into the industry and win a name of their own. Recently, the Kardashian/Jenner family, the Smiths, or the Levys have made a place in the industry, and fans don’t seem to get enough of them. In the past, it used to be the Sheens, the Fondas or, the Coppolas who used to cast big shadows. 

The famous families end up in the headlines from time to time. However, the attention shift from the older families to the more recent ones. Talking about old families in the entertainment business, the Brolin family has not been in the headlines for quite some time now. 

The Brolin family comprises three mega superstars. Patriarch, James Brolin has been a celebrated actor in Hollywood, since the late-60s. He first achieved stardom with his role of Dr. Steven Kiley in the ABC medical drama show Marcus Welby, M.D. He starred in major movies like Westworld, Amityville Horror, Traffic, and Catch Me If You Can. In recent years he was part of the American sitcom, Life in Pieces.

Brolin married American singer and actress Barbra Streisand in 1998, making her an official member of the Brolin family. She is a performer who has attained a huge amount of success in both the acting and music world, winning numerous accolades including two Oscars, ten Grammy Awards, five Emmy awards, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. 

Who is Josh Brolin Homeless Brother?


Despite, growing under the huge shadow of his father and stepmother, Josh Brolin is the most talked-about member of the family. Over the years, Josh has become a mega movie star, starring in high grossing films like The Goonies, No Country for Old Men, True Grit, and Deadpool 2. But I think Josh Brolin will be best remembered for his role of Thanos in the Marvel movies Avengers: Infinity Wars and Avengers: Endgame.

The three members of the Brolin family achieved great heights of stardom, but there are members of the family who like to remain out of the spotlight, like James’ daughter Molly and Streisand’s son Jason Gould. However, some years back, Josh’s younger brother Jess found his way to the spotlight for all the wrong reasons.

Jess Brolin was seen walking the streets of the Californian city of Ojai, one day in late-2014. Jess was captured on film, by the paparazzi, taking out things from a garbage bin. He was also seen eating what he found in the bin. This incident came as a shock because Jess belongs to such a wealthy family. Later, a source close to the Brolin family, said that the pictures were misinterpreted. In truth, Jess accidentally threw the bottle in the garbage by mistake and was taking it out to put it for recycling.

In the years following the incident, Jess Brolin has avoided the spotlight. Since then, there has been no news of him until recently when James Brolin said in an interview with Parade that his son Jess was doing well. James said that Jess now lives in a mountain town and runs a charity organization. He added that Jess is probably the happiest in the family. In a way of clearing incident from 2014, James said that Jess was collecting bottles and cans from the bin, and all the money went into charity.
