Watch: Josh Brolin on His 'Christ-Like' Character in the Coen Brothers' 'Hail, Caesar!' (Exclusive)

1 February 2016 12:32 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Josh Brolin, like his "Hail, Caesar!" co-star George Clooney, came into his own as a movie star after years of trudging through less than fab B fare. Brolin credits his mid-career turnaround to Robert Rodriguez on "Grindhouse" which led to the Coen brothers and Oscar-winner "No Country for Old Men" and "True Grit." Brolin has been on a roll (with the occasional "Jonah Hex") ever since, shooting Gus Van Sant's "Milk" (landing a supporting actor nom), Oliver Stone's "W" and "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,"  and Woody Allen's "You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger." Brolin is a chiseled American actor who boasts that rare combination: dangerous masculinity and sexy vulnerability. He plays both villains and lovers—see Jason Reitman's sexy "Labor Day." He played a cop with a flat top in Paul Thomas Anderson's "Inherent Vice," and 2015 brought strong turns »

‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Finds Its Jonah Hex in ‘Ray Donovan’ Alum Johnathon Schaech

19 January 2016 3:30 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The last time Jonah Hex was brought to life onscreen, it was a disaster. Despite the best efforts of lead actor Josh Brolin, 2010’s Jonah Hex was an out-and-out failure. Critics detested it, and audiences had absolutely no interest in it. In the end, the paltry $11 million box office haul ensured this version of Jonah Hex […]

Johnathon Schaech To Play Jonah Hex In DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow

19 January 2016 3:06 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been revealed today that Johnathon Schaech will play Jonah Hex in the first season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. The character is set to appear in the eleventh episode, with the possibility to then become a recurring presence.

As you probably know, this won’t be Jonah Hex’s live-action debut, as he was previously played by Josh Brolin in a critically panned film adaptation which also starred Michael Fassbender and Megan Fox. Here’s hoping that this outing goes a bit better.

For more on what to expect from Hex, check out the official description for the character, courtesy of The CW:

A true legend of the Old West, a morally ambiguous gunslinger with a penchant for danger. Surprisingly, he knows a thing or two about time travel and the future, but is at home in the Wild West. He’s been battling outlaws and gangs for awhile now, »

Jonah Hex has Been Cast for Legends Of Tomorrow

19 January 2016 2:48 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

In a day that is packed full of news regarding several DC projects, be it television or film, even more news has made it's way to the net. This time, it comes in the form of a new cast member that will be joining the CW's Legends Of Tomorrow in the form of Jonah Hex. The role will be filled by Johnathon Schaech, who has had several stints on network/cable television (even film), having had a part in ABC's Quantico, Ray Donovan, and Quarantine. This is a very cool new character to include in such a crazy tv show that will involve criminal and superheroes that can shrink traveling back in time to stop a crazed immortal man from ruining society. This is about as comic book-y as you can get, and I love it.

Jonah Hex has sadly already had an appearance in a live action role played by Josh Brolin, »

The Return of Cloverfield!

15 January 2016 12:30 PM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

It’s been eight long years since the Statue of Liberty’s head barreled down one of New York’s steel canyons in Matt ReevesCloverfield. And in those eight years there have been whispers, rumors, and innuendo about a sequel.

While it looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer for a legit Part 2, J.J. Abrams has at least gifted us with a teaser trailer for something called 10 Cloverfield Drive, which the Star Wars: The Force Awakens director calls a “blood relative” to the hit found-footage Sci-Fi thriller. Being cagey as usual, Abrams told Collider.com, “The idea came up a long time ago during production. We wanted to make it a blood relative of Cloverfield. The idea was developed over time. We wanted to hold back the title for as long as possible.”

Now, what “blood relative” means is up for debate, but what we do »

Jonah Hex to appear on 'DC's Legends of Tomorrow'

13 January 2016 4:49 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Variety reports that the new CW superhero show, "DC's Legends of Tomorrow", will feature a time-travel element in the series which will include the assembled team venturing into the old west and interacting with one of DC's most notable antihero, Jonah Hex.

Jonah Hex is a former confederate soldier-turned bounty hunter who is facially scarred and is known to wield supernatural powers such as raising the dead from their graves. Academy Award-nominee Josh Brolin portrayed the character in Warner Bros. Pictures film adaptation, "Jonah Hex," which co-starred John Malkovich, Michael Fassbender, Will Arnett, and Megan Fox.

On the inclusion of Hex in the show, Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim said, “Ever since we decided that ‘Legends’ would involve time travel, we were eager to do a story set in the Old West. But if you’re going to do a story set in the DC Universe version of the Old West, »

According to executive producer Marc Guggenheim, a popular DC Comics' character will make his live-action appearance during an Old West time-travel sequence in "DC's Legends Of Tomorrow", debuting Episode #1, January 21, 2016 on The CW:

DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow Will Feature Western Antihero Jonah Hex

12 January 2016 1:02 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Being a show that utilizes time-travel, DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow has the luxury of taking its characters pretty much anywhere and any time it chooses – and it just so happens it chooses to take the team back to the Old West to meet none other than legendary bounty hunter, Jonah Hex.

Hex is a former Civil War soldier turned mercenary with a hideously scarred face, who has become something of a cult DC Comics favorite over the years. He was previously played by Josh Brolin in a disastrous 2010 movie, but now another actor will get the chance to put his stamp on the character when he makes his small-screen debut.

Here’s what Legends Of Tomorrow Ep Marc Guggenheim had to say to EW about the decision to utilize Hex:
