Dune, star Josh Brolin has posted a new photo showing off his preparation for his role as Gurney Halleck in the film, part of an ensemble cast featuring the likes of the Oscar-nominated Timothee Chalamet, Aquaman star Jason Momoa, and Spider-Man: Far From Home star Zendaya.
On Instagram, Brolin showed off his bruised and beaten up forearms as he prepares to become the weapons master to the Atreides family. Along with the photo, Brolin captioned the post with one of Halleck’s quotes as spoken to young Paul Atreides. “‘What has mood to do with it? You fight when the necessity arises — no matter the mood,” Brolin wrote. “Mood’s a thing for cattle or making love or playing the baliset. It’s not for fighting.’ — Frank Herbert, Dune.“
