Brian is part of the online group Faze Clan. Faze Clan is an entertainment group that is part-esports organization, part-influencer group and part-merchandise brand. Some of the most popular YouTube and Twitch streams are part of Faze Clan, like Faze Rug, as well as celebrities like NBA star Ben Simmons. The Faze group has begun to branch out into traditional media like movies as well.
In 2020, Brian starred in his very first movie, “Crimson.” It’s a clown-themed horror film by Gregory Plotkin, the editor for “Get Out.” Prior to the movie, Brian had no experience acting – so the first day, the crew went easy on him, he said in an interview.
“Since it was my first time making a movie, on the first day they went easy on us,” he told The Verge. “The one thing I remember, the very first scene we did, me and my cousin were in the scene and we were so nervous. And then it only took two takes to get a good take; they said it usually takes six or seven. That helped my mindset through the rest of the movie.” He added that “I’m really proud of my performance. It was more me being myself, and I think I do that the best, of course.”
