Josh Brolin On Proposition 8

November 14th, 2008 // Leave a Comment

Josh Brolin, who has quickly become the go-to guy for complicated roles in such pictures as No Country For Old Men and W., is now playing a major role as a political assassin in the Harvey Milk biopic.

Milk was the first openly gay man elected into public office and it’s a timely subject considering the passing of Proposition 8, which overturned the legalization of same-sex marriages in California.

“Who gives a s***! Who cares!” Brolin said.
“Doesn’t mean [gay and lesbian people] are going to stop kissing in
the streets, just cause they can’t get married. And that’s the issue
for the religious, that it’s visible and it’s always going to be
visible, it ain’t going to go away.”

Brolin plays Dan White in Milk. White was the man who killed Harvey Milk and San Francisco mayor George Moscone in 1978. Sean Penn plays Milk.

“Gay life is more
mainstream, but at the same time, things like this happen and you go,
‘You got to be kidding me!’ especially in California,” Brolin continued. ”
I think it’s awful, but I understand it, everybody has their
perspective.”

As skewed and bigoted as they may be.
