Brown says in his film, the monster attacks a busload of high school kids.He says they’ve just won a high school basketball championship and are on their way home when the creeper attacks the bus. Brown plays the nerdy team manager Bucky in what he says is a departure from the other roles he’s played.Brown says he went in for four different roles before he got this one, which was the only role left. Brown hopes this film does as well as the original.He says the first one did really well on Labor Day weekend two or three years ago. He says there’s some competition from the film “Freddy versus Jason”, but he thinks it will do okay. Brown continues to play a reoccurring role as Kyle on the TV sitcom “Eight Simple Rules for Dating my Teenage Daughter.” he’s also appeared in other TV shows such as “Boston Public” and two movies with Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen.
