The news in July out of Louisiana, where Josh Brolin was playing President George W. Bush for filmmaker Oliver Stone's sure-to-be controversial biopic W, was stunning: Brolin, W costar Jeffrey Wright and five others were arrested in connection with a bar fight.
Now, with the machinery gearing up to promote the movie about the 43rd and current chief executive - W is set to open Oct. 17, in anticipation of the Nov. 4 national election - Brolin, who has yet to explain what happened, continues to shed little light on that night in Shreveport.
"Let me put it this way," a poker-faced Brolin, 40, tells the fashion magazine W for its October issue, on sale next Tuesday. "It was nice to be in jail knowing that I hadn't done anything wrong. And it was maddening to be in jail knowing that I hadn't done anything wrong."
