    He was "approached by Stan Lee" to play a superhero in a movie but "never got around to it."

    I remember Howard telling a story once how Stan Lee wanted to collaborate on a character. It wasn't anything to do with playing an established character.

    I call bullshit... He use to talk about being approached to possibly play the Scare Crow back when Michael Keaton was playing Batman.

    I met Stan Lee last year and dude is a fucking God but he is also older then God at this point.. if he asked Howard I grantee Stan had a stroke that day... Stan is a fucking classy man doesn't curse so he may know of Howard but no way he has listed to the show

    Actually, the rumor was that Howard was approached to play the Scarecrow to the sequel to the Joel Schumacher bomb Batman and Robin. The thing is that the movie was such a bomb that not only were they not considering Howard for a role, they decided to shelve the entire franchise.

    Maybe he wanted Howard to be a voice in that Stripperella cartoon or something.

    They should have a daily segment on the wrap-up show where they attempt to determine Howard's biggest lie of the day.
