Josh Brolin has joined the cast of Ridley Scott's "American Gangster."

The starry cast of "American Gangster" really gets shinier this time as "The Goonies" star Josh Brolin has delightfully been added to the line-up. Joining the likes of Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe, the 38-year-old actor will play a crooked, greedy NYPD cop named Det. Trupo who piggybacks an investigation carried out by his fellow lawman, Richie Roberts, played by Crowe.

A Universal Pictures production, "American Gangster" centers on the life of drug kingpin-turned-informant Frank Lucas (Washington) who teams up with Roberts to unveil criminals on the drug circuit. "Gladiator" helmer Ridley Scott has been tapped to direct with Steve Zaillian writing the script.

As for Brolin, the man previously appeared on the big screen in "Into the Blue" alongside Paul Walker and Jessica Alba. He next can be seen in Robert Rodriguez's "Planet Terror" portion of the double feature "Grindhouse" and Coen brothers' "No Country for Old Men."
