Josh Brolin has had one hell of a week—maybe not as busy as Donald Glover‘s, but the older actor’s Instagram sure makes it look like he’s giving Glover a run for his money.

First he headlined the cover of Time as his Deadpool character Cable. He looked dapper and polished for such a mercurial, lethal warrior.


Then he “appeared” on the cover of Muscle & Fitness as Avengers: Infinity War character Thanos, giving muscleheads everywhere serious physique envy with his bad purple self.

And by the time he “landed” the coveted Sexiest Man Alive title from People magazine, there was no doubt that these covers were mostly fan-created works of Photoshop mastery.

Did Brolin fool you? Right now he’s only on the cover of one mag—Men’s Journal! Check out our behind-the-scenes video with Brolin; he discusses playing Thanos and Cable (and who would win in a brawl). Read an excerpt of his feature in the June issue, then grab an issue of the magazine while it’s still available on newsstands.
