Clint Howard

Born April 20, 1959

Clint Howard has been acting, small screen and large screen, since he was a child. His unique look, his acting chops, and the fact that he has been literally acting for his entire life makes Howard someone to look like whenever he shows up in a movie.

Noteworthy

  • Star Trek (TOS) – Balok – Howard played an alien and an adversary to Kirk and the Enterprise.
  • Gentle Ben – This was the first place that I remember seeing Clint Howard. I saw it in reruns but I do remember my mom telling me that he was Opie’s brother off the Andy Griffith Show.
  • Tango & Cash – Howard has a brief cameo in this 80s action film.
  • Backdraft – Another cameo and you can see in his career that it has become a badge of honor having Clint Howard show up in your movie.
  • Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me – He has one of the best running bits in all of these movies. The radar operator bit is a classic.

One of my earliest memories is being inside the recording studio and I see the shadow of a figure that looks an awful lot like Walt Disney. Then the door opened and Mr. Disney walked in and said, ‘Hi Clint.’ I won’t ever forget that.

Spoilers Be Damned

I am no respecter of spoilers or of spoiling movies for other people - Spoilers Be Damned. It is not because I am unkind or because I look to spoil someone else's fun but I think the amount of time we spend focused on spoilers is a little ridiculous. I tire of hearing...

Embrace that Movie for What It Is or Was Supposed to Be

Embrace that Movie for What It Is or Was Supposed to Be. Do not make the assumption that every movie is made to win an Oscar. Not all movies are film or art and not all films are good movies. To me, a movie is built, designed for entertainment. A movie can be...
