THE EXPRESS

ROB BROWN (Ernie Davis) received critical acclaim in his feature-film debut as Jamal Wallace in the Gus Van Sant film Finding Forrester. A natural-born talent, who had never studied nor had any professional acting experience, he was awarded the Las Vegas Film Critics Society Award for Best Male Newcomer in 2000, as well as the Golden Satellite Award for Outstanding New Talent for his performance opposite Sean Connery, the Oscar®-winning actress Anna Paquin and F. Murray Abraham.

Brown was last seen in Kimberly Peirce's Stop-Loss, a drama about a young soldier who returns to his hometown in Texas from the war in Iraq, only to be recalled by the government's "stop-loss” policy. This Scott Rudin film stars several talented young actors alongside Brown, including Channing Tatum, Ryan Phillippe and Joseph Gordon- Levitt.

In 2005, Brown starred opposite Alexis Bledel and Chris Evans in the gritty independent film The Orphan King, directed by Andrew Wilder. Later that same year, Brown appeared alongside Samuel L. Jackson and Ashanti in Paramount Pictures' Coach Carter. In this story of a controversial high-school basketball coach (Jackson), who benches his undefeated team due to poor grades, Brown plays a key member of the team who becomes involved with a female classmate (Ashanti).

Brown also appeared in New Line Cinema's Take the Lead, co-starring Antonio Banderas and Alfre Woodard, and directed by Liz Friedlander. This true story is about a former professional ballroom dancer (Banderas) who volunteers at a New York City public school to teach dance. Brown shines in the role of a troubled student who participates in this new attempt to reform students in detention through ballroom dance lessons.

Brown, who was born in Harlem and raised in Brooklyn, currently resides in New York City.
