BOX OFFICE BUCKS 	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 2007’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 Brown’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 film’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.
