Nonetheless Howard has always brought his craft to those roles and in 2005 we got a chance to see him reign down fire on unsuspecting audiences and critics.

and remind you how wonderful he was in
Hustle N Flow. We take a look
at a few films that might have flown under
your radar. Here are a few films that
will reintroduce the talented actor and
display his potential as a budding star.

Howard plays Bill Crosby a young boy’s
farther figure in 1950’s Lackawanna,

discussing this film. If anyone out there
has seen it throw me your two cents.
