Josh Brolin to Play George Jones in Biopic

By Erin Duvall 

Josh Brolin will play country legend George Jones in the upcoming biopic, No Show Jones. The actor talked to Conan O’Brien about the upcoming film that will include Jessica Chastain as Tammy Wynette.

“I have a bit of a past and when they were trying figure out who might be best to play him, they thought what about Brolin?” Brolin told O’Brien, referencing his 2013 arrest for public intoxication. “Who has been to jail in the last 10 years?”

Brolin has apparently been doing his research for the film.

“He refused to speak in anything but duck voice for three years,” Brolin says o “The only time he came out was to do another No. 1 hit for that year. So whenever he would sing it would be a No. 1 hit and then he would go have a drink and speak in duck voice.”

Brolin mentions in the interview that the film is coming in 2017.
