    Howchie doesn't make movies because producers fear he'll sue them.

    Just ask the production company that was making "Jane" in 1997. They signed Howchie & Melanie Griffith to star in it, and were using that fact to raise money, a common Hollywood practice. Howchie demanded money above and beyond his contracted 1.5 million, because he felt he was being "used" to raise money, and the $1.5 million only covered his acting fees. The company practically went bankrupt, cancelled the move, so Howchie sued for his full 1.5 million. 2 years later, the suit was settled for $50,000, which probably barely covered Howchie's legal fees.

    When you combine that level of risk, along with probability of minimal return (Howchie's "Private Parts" wasn't nearly the financial success he had promised it would be), not even Howchie's Hollywood Jew "buddies" will hire him for a movie.

    But Howard claims he hasn't made a movie since "Private Parts" because there aren't any good scripts to be had. Yeah, right.

    Howard doesn't know what a good script is. He even said he Paramount threatened to go on with the movie without him because he was dragging his feet trying to find "the perfect script". He basically settled on the script that was used.

    What part could he play? He's too ugly for anything involving a romance. Maybe a vampire or a zombie, since those are the types of movies he claims to like. I don't believe anything he says any more, so I'm not sure if he really likes those movies or just says so because he thinks it makes him seem edgy and cool.

    He said that, but he was lying. Paramount had nothing to do with the making of the movie. They were only the distributor, who made prints of the movie and got it into theatres. The production companies who actually made the movie were "Northern Lights Entertainment" (who went on to only make 4 movies since "Private Parts" - they went under in 2001) and "Rysher Entertainment" (who made a couple of movies, but is much better known for their TV work including Arli$$, Sex & The City, Oz, and Nash Bridges. Their last work was in 2003.)

    The reason why Paramount is listed as a Production Company is simply to get more up front / back end money. The movie was in and out of the theatres in only 4 weeks -- that wasn't really enough time for Paramount to make as much money as they had been led to believe they would make, so it's a good thing they got their Production Company "billing."

    The most ironic thing about the script they ended up using was the fact that it promoted Howchie & Alison's relationship so much. Said relationship was already in the toilet (they'd been seeing shrinks / marriage counselors for years) by the time the script was finished. Bait & Switch Howchie strikes again.

    He could play Herman Munster in a movie. Beth said he looked like him.

    Those are some of the reasons I don't believe Howard's claim that he was invited to appear in the group photo Paramount had taken recently. He made up that story, just like the lie about being invited to appear on Conan's final Tonight Show.

    Interesting. Thanks for the info. It must be a pain in the ass doing business with Howard.

    What are you talking about. That manic hellraiser grin he threw at the end of his Super Bowl commercial was totally convincing and not at all awkward.

    Howie sucks in front of a camera. He's too gangly, awkward and self-conscious. The only good acting and funny aspect about Private Parts was Paul Giamanni.

    Sometimes I think he just says stupid shit to see if people are listening to him, and guess what, most are not.

    This is it exactly. The movie studios aren't in business to be sued. They want to make money...just like "Hoard" does...he shot himself in the foot once he did that...and they "the movie studios"...have a long memory. You won't see any Howard Stern production anytime soon.

    He also claimed he had a great script for "Fartman", but didn't make the movie because he couldn't secure the merchandise rights. I'm starting to wonder if that's the main reason "Fartman" wasn't made.
