I Don’t Make the Rules by Law Chen

An ex-NFL player works as a bouncer to survive. Then, he gets a job interview and goes to extremes.

Filmmaker Law Chen tells the story of an ex-football player who works various blue collar jobs to survive in New York City. When he gets an interview as a paralegal at a law firm, he does whatever it takes to get the job.

The film was partly-inspired by the personal story of its star, Myles Humphus. As a former NFL player with the Cleveland Browns, he was on the team for less than a season before being released. He had trouble finding a career afterwards, and took odd jobs to make ends meet.

He now has a second chance as an actor and stunt double for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
