This is already all over the Net, but we thought you guys might like to have a look at how actor Josh Brolin (No Country For Old Men, W.) is looking as Jonah Hex in the upcoming big-screen adaptation of the DC Comics series.

The pic shows Brolin looking tough and rugged as Jonah Hex, as well as showcasing the makeup work being used to create the character’s trademark scars. Have a look:

I’ll admit, this pic isn’t nearly as lovely as the ones of Megan Fox on the set of Jonah Hex wearing that waist-vanishing corset, but it’ll do. Brolin is one of my favorite actors right now (he was a riot in W.), and it looks like he’s going to bring the badass swagger of Jonah Hex to life the right way.

Although, up to this point I’m sure the only reason people have taken any notice of Jonah Hex at all is because of Megan Fox. I love the character and want this film to do well but they really need some kind of publicity boost soon to sell it. This ain’t exactly Batman we’re talking about here… Westerns are already a hard sell in Hollywood and I would imagine it’s going to be extra tricky selling a western to the modern comic book movie crowd…

What do you think about the pic of Josh Brolin as Jonah Hex? Looking good or just ho-hum?

Jonah Hex is slated to hit theaters on August 6, 2010.
