If you follow Josh Brolin on Instagram, you probably already know the Avengers: Infinity War actor loves nothing more than deadpanning his way through a workout. Brolin’s sense of humor is… dry. Like, accidentally-left-a-cactus-in-the-dehydrator dry.
That said, the actor behind Infinity War ultra-supervillain Thanos (and our June 2018 cover star) has plenty of comedic range. So when Brolin appeared on Wednesday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! alongside Infinity War co-stars Chadwick Boseman, Chris Hemsworth, Karen Gillan, and Sebastian Stan, he was game for a classic Jimmy Kimmel stunt: surprising Marvel superfans waiting in line for tickets to Infinity War. (Hemsworth, wearing a fly purple suit, greeted one woman dressed as Thor with a tender pat on the head.)
Back in the studio, Kimmel issued an “arts and crafts project” to the actors: drawing their own characters. (“We’ve done this each night this week, and no group [of Avengers actors] has taken it as seriously as you guys did,” Kimmel quipped.)
Brolin, who showed his drawing of Thanos last, prefaced his art with an explainer: “It’s been told to me that his face looks like a little bit like a scrotum.”
On the interview couch, Kimmel asked the actors if they’d taken any mementos from the set of Avengers: Infinity War.
“He obviously took my costume,” Brolin quipped, pointing a finger at the purple-clad Hemsworth. “Maybe a little bit of jealousy going on. I thought I rocked it really well, but he’s already taken over the purple.”
“You dropped the ball, man,” Hemsworth shot back. “I don’t know what you’re doing with the gray.”
