->''[[ShoutingShooter RRRRRRRAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!]]''
-->-- Reb Brown in pretty much every movie he's in.

'''Reb Brown''' is a former American football player who later went on to become an actor known for his roles in various low budget action movies. He is most famous for his role as David Ryder in ''Film/SpaceMutiny'' which was featured on ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000''.

He seems to have only two settings as an actor. On one hand, you have the emotionally sappy everyman Reb Brown who just wants a normal life (as caretaker of his mentally handicapped friend in ''Cage'', a soldier telling a little Vietnamese boy about Disneyland in ''Strike Commando'', or a wandering artist who just wants to see America in ''Comicbook/CaptainAmerica (1979)''). Then you have the Reb Brown who breaks loose and BLOWS SHIT UP! Its not uncommon to see both performances in the exact same movie.

A popular subject on ''WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment''. Though he loves poking fun at the films, Noah "Spoony" Antwiller has said that he really does love Reb as an actor and thinks he could have been one of the big action stars if only he'd had better roles.

!!Movies starring Reb Brown

* ''YorTheHunterFromTheFuture''
* Made for TV Movie: ''CaptainAmerica'' and its sequel, ''Captain America II: Death Too Soon''
* ''Film/SpaceMutiny''
* ''Robowar''
* ''Film/StrikeCommando''
* ''Film/UncommonValor''
* ''Mercenary Fighters''
* ''Cage''

!!Tropes associated with Red Brown and his characters:

* TheDanza: As Reb Gustafson in the ''Series/MiamiVice'' episode "Viking Bikers from Hell" .
* MoreDakka: In ''Robowar'', he and his team (the Big Ass Motherfuckers) fire randomly into the woods... every six minutes or so. It happens again in some of the other films, like ''Strike Commando'' and ''Mercenary Fighters''.
* PlayingAgainstType: He's known for playing ScreamingWarrior type guys, but in ''DeathOfASoldier'' he played an insane serial killer soldier guy with a nasty habit of killing random women in alleyways. Also in the film ''Night Claws'', where he plays a quiet, small town sheriff.
** His version of Captain America is so laid-back, he would rather just take life easy and be an artist. He never screams or shouts or shoots a gun. Reb is not in his wheelhouse in these films.
* PostMortemOneLiner: After pinning an enemy soldier to a wall with a thrown knife: "Don't move." A running joke on ''WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment'' has Spoony repeatedly pointing out that Reb's characters always follow up a major kill with unremarkable non sequiturs rather than bad-ass one-liners.
-->"These russian dentists... they do good work."
* ReclusiveArtist: According to IMDB, it's been 13 years since he's been on-screen, until 2012 where he returned with the direct to DVD horror film ''Night Claws''.
* RomanceOnTheSet: Reb met and fell in love with his wife Cissie Cameron on the set of ''SpaceMutiny''.
* ScreamingWarrior: See page quote.
** ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: His screams tend to be shrill and high-pitched, though the man can still somehow pull it off.
* ShoutingShooter: The GOD of this trope.
* TestosteronePoisoning:
** [[OurLawyersAdvisedThisTrope Warning: What follows is the manliest thing ever recorded on film.]] [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Your balls may drop off in shame at the mere knowledge that you will never in your entire life do something half as manly.]]
** [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Warning: What follows is the most awesome thing ever recorded on film.]] [[YourHeadAsplode Your head may explode.]]

* BadassDecay: His role in ''Night Claws'' is a severe departure from his typical action hero roles. [[spoiler: Heck, he gets killed off near the end of the film and becomes a DecoyProtagonist]]!
