Josh Brolin has been cast to portray George Jones in an upcoming movie about his life with Tammy Wynette. The actor shared the news during a recent late night talk show where he said, “I have a bit of a past and when they were trying figure out who might be best to play (George Jones), they thought, ‘What about Brolin?’ ‘Who has been to jail in the last 10 years?'”
Actress Jessica Chastain will play Tammy Wynette.
This upcoming movie is based on a book written by Jones’ and Wynette’s daughter Georgette. She took to social media to say, “I need to clarify . . . Nancy is making a movie and I’m sure it will be good, but I’m also making a movie. The media keeps getting confused. My movie is about my Mom and Daddy. Hers is only about Daddy and titled No Show Jones. My movie has no title yet, but Josh Brolin (who my Daddy wanted ) is playing my Daddy and Jessica Chastain is playing Mom. I’m very excited and will update you more asap.”
There is no word on when this movie will be released.
