We mustache you a question, Josh Brolin - what's with the new look? Brolin, 47, had a lot of explaining to do when he stopped by The Tonight Show on Tuesday sporting some new facial hair. "The next movie I'm doing is a 1970s porn," the actor joked about why he was rocking a thick mustache. "I'm doing research." "Somebody just went 'Ew,' " he laughed at the crowd's response.

I have never read a Goosebumps book. By the time the eager young bookworm in me was moving onto “proper” books (i.e. no illustrations), Harry Potter was exploding and contemporary children’s fiction changing, making the garish covers and pulpy titles of R. L. Stine’s plentiful novels a bit past it (I was an anti-nineties kid even at the time). I once picked up one of the “Choose your own adventure” spin-offs from the school library, but without the love for the material it felt rather monotonous.
This is very important to establish when talking about the Goosebumps movie, because Rob Letterman’s film appears to thrive on fond memories for those books. Countless stories, from the big (Slappy, the creepy ventriloquist dummy, is the main villain) to the obscure (deadly gnomes) get name-checked and Stine himself is a main character, played by a sometimes-gurning but mostly well-timed Jack Black. »
