    Default Terrence Howard says Bill Cosby blacklisted him in the 80s


    Oscar nominee Terrence Howard claims that Bill Cosby once blacklisted him. As a brash 19-year-old, Howard had a confrontation with the legendary Cosby, and says he didn’t work for four years after that. Terrence went on to star in Hustle & Flow, for which he was nominated for an Oscar.
    Oscar-nominee Terrence Howard almost destroyed his promising acting career when he was axed from The Cosby Show. The Crash star landed his first acting part in the legendary comedy show in 1988 - but he was sacked before any of his scenes were aired.
    He explains, “I was 19 and had just moved to New York from Cleveland, I got on The Cosby Show on my second audition ever.” Howard was so angry that his scenes were cut, he confronted the show’s star and producer Bill Cosby - who he claims subsequently blacklisted him in the entertainment business.
    He explains, “I told him, ‘I’m a man just like you.’ He didn’t like it, and the casting agent never took my calls again.” Howard didn’t work for four years, but recovered to forge a successful acting career - landing an Academy Award in 2006 for his role in Hustle + Flow.

    Howard went on to say:

    "A couple of years later, I ran into him again and Bill seemed apologetic. He made me a redeye and we toasted each other, and then I woke up with a rolled-up script from the Cosby Show sticking out of my butt."

    you forgot to add, "Bill was at least thoughtful enough to leave behind a complimentary travel-size pack of wetwipes on the nightstand."

    Lol, I couldn't place Terrence Howard, until I read this post. He'll never live it down. He'll always be the baby wipe man.
