'No Country for Old Men' star Josh Brolin: Studio system is backfiring

UPI News Service, 01/28/2008 

Actor Josh Brolin says U.S. movie studios are "backfiring awfully" right now so it's nice to be able to make "risky" movies such as "No Country for Old Men."

The actor and his co-stars won the Screen Actors Guild Award Sunday night for outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture.

"There were 47 people in this cast, each and every one making this the movie that it has become," Brolin told the A-list crowd. "It's a risky movie, and it's nice to have risky movies now, especially this year. I think it's a cornucopia of change. It's about story now and the studio system is backfiring awfully and it's fun for us actors. I'd like to say 'thank you' to the ever-so-passionate (producer) Scott Rudin."

Reminded by co-star Woody Harrelson to thank Joel and Ethan Coen -- who wrote and directed the film -- Brolin said: "The Coen brothers are freaky little people, you know? And we did a freaky little movie, whether you like the ending or not. So, thank you."

The Writers Guild of America has been on strike against the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers since Nov. 5.
