The Gangster Squad actor has not stopped working in the last five years and admitted he "loves" to keep busy.

"I love to work and I don't understand the mentality of actors who work once every two years. I don't understand where that new thing came from. Back in the studio system days people would do five to six movies a year," he said.

Josh has done around three films a year in the past five years.

To keep things interesting, he prefers to mix things up and do as many different projects as possible. Along with Prohibition-era thriller Gangster Squad, he has also starred in Men In Black III, Milk, True Grit, W and Jonah Hex.

"Just keep mixing it up, that's selfishly what I am trying to do. If I was watching an actor I appreciated or an actress I appreciated I wouldn't want to see them doing the same things again and again," he said.

"I like to see the challenges and I am rooting for every actor that does that. You hear 'What are they doing a comedy for?' or 'What are they doing this for?' Why not? They are actors. Try it."
