    Early Wednesday morning Howard casually dropped that he "turned down some movies recently". What roles were they for? Are they doing a Frankenstein remake?

    Didn't a Oscar winning director beg Howard to do a movie with him like a year ago?

    There were two pretty big productions that come to mind, but they're still trying to pitch it to him since he's perfect for the roles.

    1) Remake of "The Jerk" - Howard plays Steve Martin's role, and Beth takes the part of Bernadette Peters.

    2) A spinoff of "21 Grams" - A Chinese man tragically loses his life while Howard experiences a mental breakdown after losing his favorite wig. The two stories connect and in the end Howard ends up with the mans wife and hair.

    I know a guy who knows a guy who says he's up for the lead in a little something called "Box Office Poison".

    Or was it "Nightmare on Q-Rating Street"?

    He was up for a role in "The Eye Darter" but Howard couldn't handle the stunts.

    Someone should make a video with him shooting lasers from those beady little motherfuckers, complete with "pew, pew!" sound fx.

    "take that, masculinity!"

    "eat laser, dignity!"

    "not on my watch, kindness and compassion!"

    etc.

    Howard is trying to prank another company into hiring him.
    Prepare for lots of amazing tales of movie offers and $600 million fake Apple offers.

    I've heard Howard and Beth were going to star in a remake of National Velvet.

    first, write out the list of bankable 60+ movie stars who became bankable after they hit 60

    count 'em up

    now multiply that number with the number of movie successes Howard has had

    then divide that number by the number of lawsuits he's filed

    i think you'll find the number that remains is "WHO IN THEIR RIGHT FUCKING MIND WOULD PUT HIM IN A MOVIE?!?!?!?"

    how did i do it?

    Tim Cook is gay.

    Maybe a perfect match for Howard.

    The only movies he turns down are screener that he's not interested in seeing.
