Ed Norton

Smacked My Camera

Says Alleged Ed Norton Look-alike

Ed Norton
has been accused of smacking an Ed Norton "look-alike" on the streets of New York ... and the whole thing was caught on tape, TMZ has learned.

Here's the 411 -- Norton was walking down the street yesterday when he was approached by Alain Bin Naim -- a self-described celebrity interviewer with his own public access TV show in Manhattan.

Alain -- who goes by the name "Aladino" -- was following Norton down the street with a camera ... when he asked, "People are saying you look like me ... is that true?"

Norton, clearly annoyed by the situation, responded -- "Get away from me" ... and that's when he smacked Aladino's camera.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... Aladino went to the hospital, claiming he had an injured hand ... and eventually called the NYPD to file a complaint against the actor.

Sources tell us Aladino didn't have any serious injuries -- but he did ask for a splint for his hand. 

But don't expect Norton to end up behind bars over the incident ... we're told cops don't believe there's enough evidence to go after the actor.

We reached out to Norton for comment -- so far, no word back.

I'd probably smack this loser wannabe, too, if he followed me with a camera and pestered me with his stupid questions. The guy is dreaming if he think's he looks like Ed Norton. The only similarities are the hair and beard, and those are just styling choices that almost any guy can pull off.

1: This guy looks nothing like Ed Norton.
2: Being a celebrity stalker is a stupid job.
3: These damn idiots with cameras keep shoving their cameras in these celebrities faces and ask stupid questions deserve to be smacked.
4: Simply pushing the camera aside isn't going to cause serious injury yet they fake injury to try and get money.

That being said, they are s*** who deserve an even harder ass kicking than they get.

There's nothing more annoying than hearing stories about reporters bitching about altercations with celebrities. No one cares, no one is surprised. Don't like it? Find a real job that doesn't involve stalking people.

So, how long before he hires an attorney and sues, claiming that he has been seriously injured, requires constant medical attention and the only solution is millions of dollars. These guys most likely have s*** sucking, ambulance chasing lawyers on call.
