Josh Brolin channeled his villainous character Thanos in a basketball-themed sketch to promote his third time hosting Saturday Night Live this week.

The 56-year-old Oscar nominee famously portrayed the environmentally-conscious baddie in four Marvel movies – Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Avengers: Infinity War (2018), and Avengers: Endgame (2019).

In the skit, Josh decides to shoot some casual hoops inside Studio 8H with new featured players Molly Kearney and Devon Walker.

But Brolin gets a little too pumped, aggressively dominating the game and dunking fast and furiously.

‘Anything’s possible!’ the What If…? actor howled while pouring a bottle of orange Gatorade over himself.

Josh realizes he was a tad too overzealous a player once he sees how exhausted Devon and Molly appear.

‘I’m sorry, I’m just excited to be here. This is going to be a fun week for sure,’ Brolin apologized.

‘You guys are super talented!’

The SoCal native previously hosted the NBC sketch show in 2008 and in 2012 when he appeared in the very first part of the long-running sketch, The Californians.

‘Yeah!’ Josh cheered on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Tuesday.

‘I’m truly, like, a staunch Californian. I’m the only guy that has a different voice than everybody else, because I thought everybody else would f*** it up.’

Brolin will be joined on SNL – airing this Saturday at 8:30pm PT – by musical guest Ariana Grande, who’s promoting her seventh studio album Eternal Sunshine.

The Goonies alum reprised his role as weapons master Gurney Halleck in Denis Villeneve’s critically-acclaimed sequel Dune: Part Two, which has amassed $198M at the global box office since opening last Friday.

The big-screen adaptation of Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel also features Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Javier Bardem, Stellan Skarsgård, Austin Butler, Florence Pugh, Léa Seydoux, Rebecca Ferguson, and Anya Taylor-Joy.

The French-Canadian 56-year-old filmmaker’s first installment – based on Frank Herbert’s 1965 sci-fi novel – amassed $434.8M at the global box office in 2021.

Sir Patrick Stewart originated the role of Gurney Halleck in David Lynch’s dismally-reviewed 1984 sci-fi epic, which only earned $37.9M back from its $42M budget.

After Dune, Josh and Peter Dinklage will portray the titular siblings in Max Barbakow’s upcoming comedy Brothers, which is based on a story by Etan Cohen.

On the personal front, Brolin has four children – aged 3-35 – from his marriages to ex-wife #1 Alice Adair and third wife Kathryn Boyd.
