Edward Norton got in a bit of a dust up in New York City. The “Incredible Hulk” star and new father was approached by a photographer with a cell phone camera who claimed he and Norton looked alike. According to the New York Post, Alain Becerra-Calderon repeatedly asked Norton, “People say you look like me. Is that true?” while sticking his phone in the actor’s face.
Finally, Norton responded, asking, “Why are you stalking me?” and shoved the camera away. Becerra-Calderon, who posts videos to online under the name Alain Bin Naim, then complained to cops that he was attacked, before going to the hospital. He was told he suffered a “tissue contusion” in his middle finger by a doctor who says Becerra-Calderon insisted he get a splint.
Now, the NYPD is investigating Norton for harassment, while Becerra-Calderon says the whole incident was “very, very scary,” and that Norton “needs to learn to control his temper … I asked if I could ask a question, and he grabbed my phone.” As for any possible legal action, Becerra-Calderon says, “I’m discussing that with my attorney.” In the meantime, he seems to be enjoying his newly found fame, as he keeps tweeting links to stories about the scuffle.
