In an ordinary place, he found the one person to make his life extraordinary.
Sir Sean Connery could not type. When you see Forrester's hands on the keys, they are someone else's hands.
Rob Brown initially had no aspirations of being an actor, and only auditioned as an extra hoping to make some money to pay his three hundred dollar cell phone bill. But Director Gus Van Sant liked his natural ability and invited him to audition for the role of Jamal.
In the scene where Jamal checks out the data on Forrester with the school's computer, the facts he discovers are Sir Sean Connery's real-life data.
