Josh Brolin thinks Megan Fox is the next Katherine Hepburn

I'm not sure I agree with Josh.

Hmm...

Katharine Hepburn has won 4 Oscars for Best Actress. Megan Fox was nominated for "Best WTF Moment" at the MTV Movie Awards. Katharine Hepburn is ranked the #1 actress in AFI's "50 Greatest Movie Legends." Megan Fox is ranked #3 in the hotties with the hottest rack list on Michael Bay's basement refrigerator. Katharine Hepburn is considered one of the greatest actors of all time. Megan Fox is considered one of the dumbest bitches of all time.

So you can completely understand why Josh Brolin is hailing Megan Fox as the Katharine Hepburn of this generation. This is what Josh tells Playboy (via Contact Music):
"What Megan has done is confuse everybody thoroughly. To me, she's doing something more interesting than what a lot of other young people in movies are doing. Katharine Hepburn, one of the most appreciated actresses today, was hated back in her heyday. She was box office poison…They didn't understand her. Yet now we all look back and go, 'OK, she was incredible.' I would love to be the person who puts Megan in a film in which she can actually do something interesting."
Josh Brolin is not alone. Earlier this year, Mickey Rourke said Megan was the most talented actress he has ever worked with. The fuck? Does she lick the taint that good?

I'm sure my night nurse at the retirement home will be spoon feeding me my own words when we watch Megan Fox accept the Honorary M. Night Shyamalan Lifetime Achivement Award at the Oscars in 40 years.

So, Josh Brolin is quoting "The Aviator" now... I see.

Well, Josh Brolin considering it's not 2007 anymore and you squandered away any career potential Joel and Ethan Coen gave to you, I don't think I care what you have to say.

In a new movie coming out called Passion Play.

I understand what he's saying, if he's saying that the hate does not compare to her talent. She's really not a bad actress but she does get disproportionate hate for her work.

I don't hate Fox, I just don't think she's worth all the hype she gets cuz she looks good. I've yet to give a damn about her acting.

I think Brolin is making a joke at her expense. Remember this is the man who promoted "Jonah Hex" by saying he took the role because he wanted to find the worst script imaginable.

Unless I'm missing something he's saying their situations are similar, as in how they're perceived by the industry/public/press, not that their acting abilities are the same.

I hope not. Then we'd know he's truly insane.

Yes. The Philadelphia Story saved her career. Even Bringing Up Baby was not a huge hit on release largely due to her prior films not always being that stellar.

I'm sure Megan appreciates being told that she's box office poison.

Meaning, correctly, that she hasn't actually done anything interesting so far.

What does this even mean? Is he suggesting that the bitchy bimbo persona is some sort of elaborate Andy Kaufman-esque ruse?

Yes. Other people have suggested the same thing. Just as people claim that Paris Hilton as dumb-blonde bimbo is just a marketing persona.

Re: Josh Brolin thinks Megan Fox is the next Katherine Hepburn

By the time Hepburn was labeled "box office poison" she'd won an Oscar and been in a couple Best Picture nominees.

I'm sure Ash Ketchum is currently writing a multi-page defense of dear Megan.

That seems more like Lindsay Lohan to me.
