Josh Brolin describes Eric Marsh, the character he plays in Only the Brave, as tough, with a lot of demons. He says Eric is very different from himself, because in real life he talks a lot, whereas Eric is more laconic and keeps things inside. So he says the trick to playing his role was to contain everything. Josh talks about how for most movies, when they have a boot camp to prepare for the physical aspects of the film, it's more for show, but in this film, they actually had members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots on hand, which inspired the actors to be as authentic as possible.
