Famed for his acting prowess and deep, intimidating voice, Josh Brolin has now turned his guns straight at Jimmy Kimmel along with Emily Blunt, and John Krasinski after a successful combat outing with Dune: Part Two, a few weeks down the line. The 56-year-old actor boasts a wide-expanding career, with his co-stars being some of Hollywood’s most well-established and popular faces. Furthermore, he has taken it upon himself for the task of documenting these experiences thanks to another of his lesser-known skills – writing.


Ranging from sharing the screens with almost the entirety of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s cast in the last two Avengers movies to working on a host of adventure and biopic movies, the actor’s content bucket stays full.

Thus, all of it leads to an upcoming memoir of his, for which he is promising to leave no holds barred in his latest appearance on the comedian’s talk show.

Standing memorable as Marvel’s Thanos, Josh Brolin’s latest book, From Under the Truck, is eyeing a November 2024 launch. Ahead of its release, the star appeared on the May 8 episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live and spilled the beans on what its pages actually contain. After teasing that the book was “very humbling” and “really cool to write”, he changed tracks by saying that it also has a “lot of revealing stories” in it.

Interestingly, the Gurney Halleck actor also opened up on further discussions with Jimmy Kimmel. In response to the host’s query of whether the book contained reveals about his “enemies”, he put out a firm no. Moreover, he simply stated that he had no foes and agreed that it was just the people closest to him. Soon after, he began his firing in jest on Emily Blunt and John Krasinski.

“I call a lot of people out. If they’re famous the book will sell.”

“Emily Blunt, your friend. Tell her, half the book’s about her. John Kazinski is the other half.” After mistaking the actor’s surname, Brolin funnily chimed that the memoir is “obviously not very well written”.


Regardless, the hilarious mention of the actor couple in front of Kimmel happened because of the latter’s close association, with them, involving a set of pranks repeatedly played upon one another. Moreover, Blunt has also shared the screens with the Cable actor in 2015’s Sicario, making up for an amicable relationship.

What is From Under the Truck about?

Available for pre-order and slated to release on November 19 this year, From Under the Truck documents a deeply personal narrative that spans various stages and experiences of Josh Brolin’s life. The memoir will explore his unconventional childhood in Paso Robles, address the tragic early death of his mother, and narrate the background details of his decades-long career in the film industry by revisiting his earlier roles and their struggles such as The Goonies and No Country for Old Men.

In addition to all of this, the book will dive deep into the actor’s struggles with addiction, personal relationships, and fatherhood. Finally, his recent creative pursuits with poetry and photography, such as Dune: Exposures, also signal a step in the right direction.


A rare insight into the mind of an actor as versatile as Brolin, the memoir will offer philosophical musings and reflections on life, drawing from his rich and varied experiences.
