~ Brad Gurdlinger to David Clarke.

Brad Gurdlinger is one of the two main antagonists (along with Pablo Chacon) of the 2013 American comedy film We're the Millers.

He was portrayed by Ed Helms, who also played the Once-Ler in The Lorax.


Mr. Gurdlinger is a wealthy drug lord who is David Clark's crooked boss. He forcibly hired David to smuggle marijuana out of Mexico back to Colorado Springs in Colorado, USA by posing as an agent of a notorious Mexican drug lord named Pablo Chacon. In doing so, he stirred the wrath and resentment of said drug lord.

While David and his fake family were away, it is revealed that Brad had expected him to fail the smuggling attempt. He vexatiously made satires to David through the phone, goading him into putting all the effort into returning with the quantity of weed to him.

At the end, when David finally completes Brad's task, Brad is thrilled, but perfidiously he reveals that he never intended to reward him his money. Suddenly, DEA breach the building and seizes him (including his companions) thanks to David's help out, Don Fitzgerald. Brad is then taken into custody for his crimes.



  • Brad is a hidden villain because he seemed like a friendly guy at first, and remained this way even after he turned out to be a backstabbing prick. Despite sharing the role of main antagonist with Chacon, he had bigger plans than Chacon and was in fact using David to put Chacon out of business.
  • He is also David's former college roommate. He and David sold pot together from their dorm room, which eventually led them to become drug dealers.
  • Since David did deliver the drugs to Brad's estate, and since Pablo Chacon was defeated, Brad actually did succeed in his goals; he just never got to enjoy it.
