Rob Brown

Actor Rob Brown's racial discrimination lawsuit against bosses of U.S. retail giant MACy's has reportedly ended after the two parties reached an undisclosed settlement.

The Treme star filed a class-action complaint against the department store chain last year (13) after alleging he had been handcuffed and questioned by undercover police at the company's New York venue.

Staff had suspected him of using a stolen credit card to buy a $1,350 (£900) watch for his mother, and Brown alleged he was "paraded" through the store like a criminal before being released without charge 45 minutes later.

Actor Rob Brown Files Class-action Suit Against Macy's Bosses


Rob Brown

Black actor Rob Brown has filed a new class-action complaint against bosses at U.S. retailer MACy's over multiple allegations of racial discrimination.

The Treme star revealed last month (Oct13) that he had been handcuffed and questioned by undercover police at the company's flagship New York store after store clerks suspected him of using a stolen credit card to buy a $1,350 (£900) Movado watch for his mother.

He claims he was "paraded" through the department store like a criminal, but released without charge after 45 minutes in custody when officials realised who he was.

Don Jon Review


Excellent

With this writing-directing debut, Joseph Gordon-Levitt delivers a remarkably assured comedy-drama while also giving himself a role that's far against his usual type. It's raucously hilarious but also surprisingly involving as it reveals the vulnerabilities of a strutting hard-man. And we're having so much fun that we barely notice that the script's approach to addiction is somewhat simplistic.

The title character is such a dude that his friends call him "the don", in reference to New Jersey gangsters. And Jon (Gordon-Levitt) has his life figured out, with a list of things he cares for: his body, home, car, family, church, friends and girls. In that order. But above everything else, his main obsession is porn. Then while hanging with his friends Bobby and Danny (Brown and Luke) he spots Barbara (Johansson), a perfect "dime" who's worth playing the long game for. Except that she has zero tolerance for pornography, so he has to hide his addiction from her, only confessing to his parish priest and an unexpectedly sympathetic fellow student (Moore) at night school.

Like a character from Jersey Shore, Jon is such a charming loser that we can't help but love him. But despite the macho swagger and gym-honed physique, he's also deeply devoted to his parents (the fabulous Danza and Headly) and happiest when he's cleaning his flat. Gordon-Levitt wouldn't be the first actor you'd think of in this role, but he plays it perfectly, letting us see the little boy behind the tough-guy posturing and making us believe that he's fallen for the charms of this idealised woman (Johansson is simply hysterical).

Actor Rob Brown Suing Macy's Over Racial Profiling Allegations


Rob Brown

Actor Rob Brown has filed a lawsuit against bosses at top U.S. retailer MACy's amid allegations of racial discrimination after he was suspected of using a stolen credit card to purchase an expensive watch.

The Finding Forrester star, 29, claims he was handcuffed in the company's flagship New York store for no reason in June (13) after buying a $1,350 (£900) Movado timepiece as a gift for his mother, Myra, who had graduated from Metropolitan Community College.

He continued shopping after paying for the watch, but alleges he was quickly surrounded by "at least three" plainclothes officers who detained him and "paraded" him through the store like a criminal as they took him upstairs to be questioned.

Don Jon Trailer


Jon Martello enjoys his routine lifestyle which involves working out, maintaining his apartment, driving a flash car, seeing his family, going to church, hanging with his boys, pulling pretty girls and, crucially, watching porn. The expectations he builds watching X-rated internet videos is a massive contribution to the fact that he doesn't have long lasting relationships with anyone, despite his friends nicknaming him Don Jon for his ability to take home a stunning woman whenever he likes. However, after setting eyes on a beautiful blonde at a club, he has more than just a one night stand on his mind and arranges to meet her for a date. When they appear to begin seeing each other regularly (to the delight of his grandchild-less mother) things seem to be going better for him than ever before; that is, until, she catches him enjoying his daily dose of obscene web action. Jon now realises he has a lot of lessons to learn if he wants to be with the woman of his dreams.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt ('Looper', 'Lincoln', 'Inception', 'The Dark Knight Rises') stars in his directorial feature debut 'Don Jon' which also marks his first full-length screenplay. It's a comedy about a seemingly normal New Jersey guy who, though happy as he is at the present, could be slowly destroying his future. It will hit UK cinemas in the Autumn on November 15th 2013.

Finding Forrester Review


Good
They're already calling it "Good Will Hunting in the hood," and it's for good reason. Gus Van Sant's latest takes us back to the inner city (or The Bronx, at least) for a second verse of that feel-good feeling, with none other than Sean Connery as a crotchety old shut-in who teaches (and learns from, natch) a local teen (Rob Brown) who sneaks into his apartment.

If you've seen the trailer, you know the story. The local Bronx kids live in fear of "the window," a ghostlike man who stares down at them creepily while they shoot hoops. On a dare, young Jamal (Brown) sneaks into the place, finding it cluttered with books. He's given a scare and Jamal runs off, leaving his backpack behind.
