He started young, playing the brash older brother to one of the adventurous kids in 'The Goonies' (1985). The next two decades saw him take backseat roles and he built a successful career as a stock trader. Then three roles in 2007 changed his fortunes. He was a demented doctor in Robert Rodriguez’s segment of 'Grindhouse' ('Planet Terror'), a supporting character in Paul Haggis’ 'In the Valley of Elah' and superb in the Coen’s 'No Country for Old Men'. That latter role found him at ease with his age and physicality. He is an impressive President Bush in Oliver Stone’s 'W.' and a troubled Dan White in Gus Van Sant’s 'Milk' (both 2008), wasted in 'Jonah Hex' (2010), smartly cast by the Coens again in their version of 'True Grit' (2010) and a strong presence in the otherwise poor 'Labor Day' (2013). His imposing physicality is a major factor in convincing us of character Matt Graver in 'Sicario' and Beck Weathers in 'Everest' (both 2015), but it is also used to great comic effect in 'Inherent Vice' (2014) and another collaboration with the Coens' 'Hail Caesar!' (2016). And he is likely to be one of the more memorable villains in 'Marvel Lore', having already played Thanos in cameo roles in 'Guardians of the Galaxy' (2014) and 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' (2015), and taking centre stage in 'Avengers: Infinity War' (2018).
