Darth Vader's Brother is a Baller

10/11/2006 1:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Scoring a lead role in one of the biggest movie franchises ever made will probably make you rich. Really rich. But who would have guessed that just being the brother of the baddest man in a galaxy far, far away could score entry into one of the most exclusive financial clubs on the planet? Not us.
Tove and Hayden Christensen
According to sources, Hayden Christensen's older brother Tove recently cruised into a Los Angeles Baskin-Robbins ice cream store and paid for a frozen treat using an American Express black card. An American Express black card!?!? Normally, these limitless credit cards are issued to the most elite of the elite, the richest of the rich, and are often used to buy extremely extravagant items like private planes, mansions or ice cream STORES! Not just a simple sundae.

But we're not taking anything away from Tove's accomplishments. The former actor is a Hollywood power player, garnering all sorts of acclaim as a producer of the 2003 flick "Shattered Glass," which starred his brother Hayden. Impressive, but, let's face it -- he doesn't exactly share the same prerequisites that earned Britney Spears her black card. Looks like he might have more in common with K-Fed instead.

In reality anyone who spends over 250k and has held an existing amex for 1yr+ can ask for, and receive, an invitation. That means a lot of business travelers (both rich and poor) have Centurion (black) Amex cards. It's not as "Elite" as you make it out to be. Though the $2,500 yearly fee tends to keep out some of the riff-raff.

A) COMMENT NUMBER 1 IS TRUE, ANY DOUCHER CAN GET THE BLACK CARD IF THEY HAVE MAD SPENDZ AKA OVER 250 K PER ANUM.
B) IT IS NOT A LIMITLESS CREDIT CARD. DOUCHERS THAT CARRY TEH BLACK CENTURION AMEX HAVE TO PAY OFF THE BALANCE IN FULL AT THE END OF EVERY MONTH JUST LIKE THE AMEX PLATINUM, GOLD AND GREEN WHICH ESENTIALLY ARE ALSO "LIMITLESS"
C) BASKIN ROBBINS DOES INDEED ACCEPT AMEX, I GOT MY SOME DAQUIRI ICE THERE THE OTHER DAY ON MY "LIMITLESS" GOLD CARD.
D) WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH USING A BLACK CARD FOR SMALL PURPOSES? YOU KNOW FOR A FACT THAT IF YOU HAD A BLACK CARD IT WOULD BE THE ONLY PIECE OF TITANIUM YOU'D THROW DOWN (TAHTS RIGHT I SAID TITANIUM, ITS NOT MADE OF PLASTIC)
e) IF I HAD A BLACK CARD ID BE THROWIN IT DOWN AND GETTING THE PANTIES OF THE LaDIES TO BE THROWN DOWN DUE TO THEM BEING IMPRESSED

Tove Christensen, HAYDEN'S brother, is a graduate of the same school Donald Trump sent his children too that Pennsylvania college (Wharton). Tove has a degree in management and theatre so he's certainly qualified. But really, who cares what kind of credit card he has? Really...
