Josh Brolin is the latest celeb to enter rehab.

Both Us Weekly and People confirm with sources that the longtime actor, whose credits include "The Goonies" and "No Country for Old Men," is seeking treatment at a facility in Northern California.

Brolin's rep did not respond to omg!'s request for comment.

Just this month, the 45-year-old was seen on video in an altercation with a bouncer at a bar in Santa Monica, California, when he refused to leave at closing time. He was caught on camera the same weekend getting belligerent with a cab driver during a late-night stop at a Del Taco drive-thru.

But that wasn't the first time that Brolin, the son of actor James Brolin and stepson of Barbra Streisand, had hit the bottle too hard in public. Just before the clock struck midnight to mark the start of 2013, police found the actor "heavily intoxicated" on an L.A. Sidewalk.

Back in July 2008, when Brolin was filming Oliver Stone's "W." in Shreveport, Louisiana, he and co-star Jeffrey Wright, as well as five crew members, were arrested following a bar brawl. The trouble started when the cast and crew was asked to leave but refused. Brolin himself was charged with interfering with an officer, although he always maintained that he did nothing wrong. All charges against the group were dropped in 2009.

Following the most recent incidents, Brolin told TMZ cameras that he was "completely done" with the booze.

Brolin and his actress wife, Diane Lane, announced their split in February after eight years of marriage.
