Brown grew up in Brooklyn, New York, where he attended Poly Prep Country Day School, becoming an avid basketball and football player, before matriculating in 2002. He then enrolled in Amherst College Massachusetts, where he majored in Psychology and played varsity basketball. He graduated from Amherst in 2006.

Brown had made his first foray into the acting world with the role of student Jamal Wallace in the 2000 drama film “Finding Forrester”, when he was 16 years old – he actually came to the audition to try to get a small role just to pay off a cell phone bill, but was cast in the lead instead. Although he had no acting education or experience, Brown’s talent was recognized and he went on to amass impressive credentials in both film and television. His net worth was at its start.

He landed the role of basketball player Kenyon Stone in the biographical sports drama film “Coach Carter”, starring Samuel L. Jackson, in 2005. The following year he played the lead role as student Rock in the drama dance film “Take the Lead”, alongside Antonio Banderas, and opportunities continued to come his way, with another starring part in 2007, playing Byron in the film “Live!”, starring Eva Mendez. His performances elevated his popularity, bringing him a decent fan base and earning him great money.

The following year saw Brown playing Isaac “Eyeball” Butler in the war drama film “Stop-Loss”, and landing the role of Earnie Davis in the sports drama film “The Express”, based on the life of the college football star who was the first African-American to win the Heisman Trophy. His popularity skyrocketed after this role and Brown reached stardom, which significantly added to his fortune.

In 2010 he was cast in the HBO television drama series “Treme”, playing the lead role as Delmond Lambreaux for four seasons until 2013, which cemented his status among stars, and further expanding his wealth.

Meanwhile, Brown also appeared in the 2012 superhero film “The Dark Knight Rises” and had a supporting role in the 2013 romantic comedy-drama film “Don Jon”. He went on to star as Bryce in the crime thriller film “Criminal Activities” in 2015, and the same year he was cast in the NBC crime drama series “Blindspot”, in which he has played Special Agent Edgar Reade ever since.
Brown’s most recent television involvement was a recurring role in the drama series “Shooter” in 2016. He has also been involved in the short film “A Break in White”, which is in post-production.

When it comes to his personal life, Brown tends to keep it away from public view, so sources don’t have any details regarding his current love life. The actor has been involved in philanthropy, serving as the spokesman of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night Walk, focused on finding a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma.
