'Malcolm' Bro

in the Middle of Space

7/28/2008 2:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0728_malcom_branson_plane_ex-1TMZ has learned that Justin Berfield, aka the dude who played the second-oldest bro on "Malcolm in the Middle," will be going to space with Richard Branson. Rewind: That dude has the coin to blow $250K on a 150-minute space trip? Apparently so.

Berfield has ponied up for a seat on Virgin Galactic's White Knight Two, which should be ready for flight in a couple years. The celebs and rich people on board will go up in space for two-and-a-half hours, including five minutes of actual weightlessness.

Turns out that the actor/producer just loooooooves Chief Virgin Richard Branson and that his production company J2TV has ties to Virgin Unite, Branson's charity arm.

The White Knight Two is the plane that will carry the rocket plane to it's launch altitude. The SpaceShipTwo will carry Justin Barfield into space.
