Josh Brolin Unveils His Poetic Side with a ‘Creepy’ Tribute to Timothée Chalamet on SNL

In an amusing turn of events on “Saturday Night Live,” Josh Brolin, celebrated for his diverse acting roles, showcased an entirely different talent. Known for his intense performances, Brolin surprised the audience by revealing his penchant for poetry, specifically focusing on his colleagues. During his SNL monologue, after a notable absence of 12 years from the show, Brolin humorously shared that alongside directing and writing, he crafts poems about everyone he works with. This revelation prefaced a particularly unique ode dedicated to Timothée Chalamet, his co-star in the much-anticipated “Dune: Part Two.”

Describing it as a “super creepy poem,” Brolin, with a playful warning, encouraged the audience to form their own opinions. Accompanied by soft background music, he recited verses that painted a vivid picture of Chalamet’s youthful visage, emphasizing the actor’s striking features with a touch of poetic flair. These lines, extracted from his coffee table book “Dune: Exposures,” offered a blend of admiration and the peculiar, which Brolin was quick to clarify. Asserting a platonic intention behind his words, he humorously noted his habit of encapsulating his experiences with co-stars in verse, mentioning a recent poem about Kenan Thompson as another example.

Following the portrayal of Thompson with descriptions of an ‘ageless face’ and ‘sugar cookie cheeks,’ Brolin announced his upcoming book, “From Under the Truck,” promising more literary insights into his relationships with his colleagues. This unique blend of humor and creativity not only entertained the audience but also shed light on Brolin’s multifaceted talents, from the dramatic to the delightfully unconventional.
