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.

That guy looks nothing like Ed Norton. I believe Ed was rude, but I doubt there's any truth to the story after that.

Norton told him to get away from him. It's obvious the guy was hoping for a confrontation to get a quick payout.

I would NEVER want to be a celebrity in this world - too many unimportant little *******s wandering around, trying to provoke you into their 15 minutes and a paycheck. I have no problem with a celeb insisting their right to some measure of privacy be respected. Heck - I'd have paid 11.00 and a box of popcorn to watch Norton smack this guy. Dumbass little wannabe looks more like Ben Kingsley than he does Ed Norton. The only time this guy is a 'look a like' for Norton is when he's sitting in his dark little living room, with his hand lotion and box of Kleenex, looking at his reflection in his TV screen while a copy of "25th Hour" is playing. Dweeble.
