Bobby J. Brown a.k.a. Bobby Brown
IMDB
Official Site

I see many of this actor's profiles entered as Bobby J. Brown (as Bobby Brown), which seems suspicious. There are multiple Bobby Browns in the database so CLT results aren't accurate.

Bobby Brown (5 confirmed)
The Corner
Homicide: Life on the Street: Season 6 (Ep 9)
Pecker
The Wire: Season 4 (Ep 9)
The Wire: Season 5 (Eps 1, 2, 4, 8, 9, 10)

Bobby J. Brown (2 confirmed)
From Within
Love the Hard Way

Unconfirmed in Database:
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Season 2 (Ep 21)
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Season 5 (Eps 3 & 12)
My One and Only
Veep: Season 1 (Ep 4)

Additionally, these titles show up on his IMDB/his website, but don't appear in the CLT results:
City By the Sea
Nocturnal Agony
Off-Time
The Pennsylvania Miner's Story

If this ends up being Bobby Brown, we will need a BY for this Bobby Brown (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1015918/) who's BY is 1964.  I have not found a BY for the one in this thread.

Don't forget the 'pop star' Bobby Brown (1969) (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0113140/) who appears in Ghostbusters II, if nothing else.

Well heck that means we need the 1964 and 1969 BY's...that is if the common names of those two yield Bobby Brown.

I investigated the 1969 and 1964 Bobby Browns earlier when going through the CLT results for this actor. I'm pretty certain they share the same common name. The singer/songwriter has 8 titles under Bobby Brown, 1 under Bobby Beresford Brown, and 1 other as The New Edition. I'm not aware of another alias for the 1964 Bobby Brown.

I've just submitted the 1964 and 1969 BYs and added it to the BY thread.

There's also another Bobby Brown as "Elevator Man" in Lucky Number Slevin to add to the confusion.
Even better, he too was born in 1964 (if imdb is right, so 50/50). I have pics of them proving they are different in my local. Bobby J. is white guy, Bobby is black (and not the crackhead/singer, visually confirmed).   

So, I'm locking my local titles and keeping Bobby J. no matter what this ends up being.

I think we had some confusion

That is the same Bobby Brown 1964

IMDB points to http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1015918/ from "Lucky Number Slevin"

That is the same one as I pointed out in my post that needs a 1964 BY

No one said that Bobby J. Brown(http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1534784/) was Bobby Brown (1964).  I was just pointing out that if the common name was Bobby Brown we would need a BY for the 1964 one.  And Greyhulk added we would also need one for the 1969 one as well.

Bobby J. Brown has no BY that I am aware of.

It should turn out alright regardless of Bobby J. Brown's common name. As Scooter mentioned, the Bobby Brown in Lucky Number Slevin is the 1964 Bobby Brown we've been talking about. Bobby J. Brown doesn't have a known BY. I've submitted the 1964 BY in a DVD profile for Lucky Number Slevin and it's under review.

Just checked:
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Season 2 (Ep 21) as Bobby J. Brown
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Season 5 (Ep 3) as Bobby Brown
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Season 5 (Ep 12) as Bobby J. Brown

Ahhh, I mistook the link to be for Bobby J. as 1964, guess I should've clicked/copy-pasted it first. So Bobby J. is about to become Bobby no BY then, cuz we got those for the others.

Bobby Brown is not credited for City by the Sea at all. - He is mentioned in the IMDB as uncredited only.

So we have:
Bobby Brown: 7
Bobby J. Brown: 5
Not checked yet: 3 (Nocturnal Agony, Off-Time, The Pennsylvania Miner's Story)
List of common name threads - Headshots starting point
