      Rob Brown

      Rob Brown

      Highest Rated: 80% Don Jon (2013)

      Lowest Rated: 44% Take the Lead (2006)

      Birthday: Mar 1, 1984

      Birthplace: Harlem, New York, USA

      Rob Brown had zero experience with acting when he auditioned to appear as an extra in the film "Finding Forrester" (2000). Born in Harlem in 1984 and raised in Brooklyn, Brown was only a high schooler at the time, with a main interest in paying off a whopping $300 cell phone bill when he was unexpectedly cast in the film's lead role as a gifted but troubled young writer. Brown's impressive performance in the movie (forever known for Sean Connery's exclamation to Brown "You da man now, dawg!") earned him instant acclaim. After taking a short break from acting to study and play football at Amherst College, Brown returned to the screen and appeared in a number of acclaimed sports dramas including "Coach Carter" (2005) and "The Express" (2008). Eventually, Brown found his way to television, memorably playing Delmond Lambreaux on the HBO series "Treme" (HBO, 2010-13). Brown would go on to appear in the massively successful "The Dark Knight Rises" (2012) as well as Joseph Gordon-Levitt's acclaimed comedy-drama "Don Jon" (2013) before joining the cast of the mystery series "Blindspot" (NBC, 2015- ). Just a short while later, Brown took on the role of Donny on the political thriller series "Shooter" (USA, 2016-).
