Parlaying a music career into an acting career is all the rage for entertainers these days and Brown is no exception. He made his film debut in 2007â€™s Stomp The Yard, which grossed over $61 million at the box office. Later that same year Brown appeared prominently in the family drama This Christmas, which pulled in $49 million in ticket sales. Although filmed prior to Brownâ€™s domestic violence incident and held in limbo for over a year, Takers proved to be another cinematic win for the embattled star. Not only was Brown part of the ensemble cast, he was also one of the filmâ€™s executive producers. Released last August, the film earned the No. 1 spot at the box office its opening weekend with $20 million in ticket sales, before grossing more than $57 million overall. Now, if only Brown could keep all of his drama on screen his brand would be in even better standing.
