Terrence Howard Plays Spanish Music With the Band on 'Lopez Tonight' (VIDEO)

Terrence Howard, 'Lopez Tonight'Terrence Howard proved on 'Lopez Tonight' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS) that music knows no boundaries. He professed a great love for music in general, saying "That's all I think about!"

But the actor has a special affection for Spanish music, despite the language barrier. He never learned to speak Spanish.

"So I've made up a lot of words ... with a lot of songs," he admitted.

When George Lopez asked him if he wanted to take the stage with the band and perform, Howard was all for it. While we thought he was capable enough on the guitar, his voice wasn't the strongest. We have heard worse among finalists on 'American Idol,' though.

"I want the warrant and every last bit of discovery you have by no later than close of business today," he demands. Wait, Dekker is the perp's defense lawyer? Turns out the alleged rapist is his cousin.

"My job here is to ensure that there is no police or prosecutorial misconduct, so we'll be seeing a lot of each other," Dekker threatens.

"Goodie. Just what we need around here: another arrogant prick," says Stabler.

'L&O: Los Angeles' D.A. Puts Politics Before Justice (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Oct 7th 2010 10:50AM
Terrence Howard Fights for Justice on 'L&O: Los Angeles'L.A. County district attorney Jerry Hardin has a lot of legal action in store on 'Law & Order: Los Angeles' (Wed., 10PM ET on NBC). But is justice being served? Deputy district attorney Joe Dekker doesn't think so.

A woman now on trial was previously wrongly convicted and imprisoned for killing her kids. Now she's being tried for a murder she actually committed. Hardin orders him to "offer Dylan 12 years for manslaughter, declare victory and get out."

Dekker replies, "What, a slap on the wrist for a textbook first-degree murder? Right after we apologize to her for a wrongful conviction?" No apology as far as Hardin is concerned. He cares less about making sure the punishment fits the crime and more about not making the police department look bad. "We need their support," he explains.

Dekker: "That doesn't sound like good law to me."
Hardin: "It's not. It's good politics."

Terrence Howard Tries Car Kung Fu, Shares Footage of Getting Stitches (VIDEO)

Terrence Howard Shares Getting Stitches on 'Tonight Show'While Terrence Howard was driving and in mid-conversation with a producer from 'The Tonight Show' -- discussing his impending visit -- Howard was thinking about Bruce Lee. For some reason, he thought it was an opportune moment to do a kung-fu move in his car.

"You know how Bruce Lee used to do that little short one-inch punch? ... I'm thinking I can do that in front of the rearview mirror," said Howard. "I broke the mirror, broke the windshield -- I'm strong!" He was forced to abruptly end the phone call and head to the hospital.

Once there, Howard filmed getting stitches in his fingers, and he shared the footage with the 'Tonight' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC) audience. Just when we thought this was purely a gesture of self-promotion, Howard was shown (and heard) screaming like a little girl. (But also note, he's wearing shades indoors. So Hollywood.)

'Law & Order: Los Angeles' Premiere Review: Mature Franchise Gets West Coast Facelift

by Maureen Ryan, posted Sep 29th 2010 1:00PM
The thumping disco music that opens the first episode of 'Law & Order: Los Angeles' (10PM ET Wednesday, NBC) is meant to remind you that this is not your father's crime procedural.

Well, actually, it is your father's crime procedural. But this is a 'Law & Order' that has heard of Facebook and TMZ.

In fairness, other editions of the cop-lawyer warhorse have dabbled in topical events and trendy ideas (or ideas that were trendy a while ago). But, as was the case with the mothership of the franchise, this West Coast 'Law & Order' works best when it gives its able cast knotty dilemmas to play.

Peace, Love and Soul at the 2009 Soul Train Awards

2009 Soul Train AwardsThe 2009 Soul Train Awards were full of surprises -- of the smooching variety, that is.

The show began with Trey Songz and Toni Braxton puckering up during their performance of 'Yesterday.' Co-hosts Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson then celebrated their 'Hustle & Flow' reunion with some major (faux?) spit-swapping.

Not that it was necessary for Taraji to wow the audience. She did a dead-on impression of Diana Ross in a Motown tribute and she and Terrence impressed with their singing abilities.

No doubt aware of industry buzz that Mo'Nique is sure to score an Oscar nomination for her role in 'Precious' as the title character's abusive mother, Terrence Howard offers a bit of helpful advice to the actress and talk show host during an interview on 'The Mo'Nique Show.'

Howard, who was nominated for his role in 'Hustle and Flow,' had this to say on receiving the nomination itself: "You'll be sitting there in front of that television pretending to sleep, and at 5:15 when they mention your name, tears will roll out of your eyes ... and you'll sit there and you'll pray that you are not dreaming."

Watch the video after the jump.

Lessons in modern language usage from Oprah Winfrey

by Karina Longworth, posted Dec 27th 2005 8:02PM
Today's Oprah – actually, I think it was a repeat - featured the entire cast of Paul Haggis' Crash (which Oprah, as she reminded us ad nauseum, "looooooooovvvvvvvvvvvvvved") talking about racism. I tuned in late (all the better to misinterpret out of context, my pretties), but I caught an ... um ... interesting segment about  linguistics.

When I turned the TV on, Oprah and Don Cheadle were talking over, and almost yelling at, each other. Apparently they were right in the middle of an intense debate over the proper use of the "N Word". Then Terrence Howard (who, the cynics amongst us will point out, is campaigning for Oscar nods on at least 2 performances and, as such, probably wants to be seen as Nice Guy) tells Oprah that he's decided to stop using it; Cheadle vehemently explains why he's opposed to pressuring people into limiting their linguistic choices. As if to bully him into breaking the tie for her side, Oprah turns to Ludacris. "Cris, would you consider not using The Word?" Visibly uncomfortable., Luda smiles. "Uh, I feel the same way Don does about it." Then, all of a sudden, out of nowhere, Sandra Bullock pipes up:

"As long as we're going to stop using words," she says (and I'm totally paraphrasing), "Can we stop with the bitch and the ho, for women?"

The crowd goes wild. Completely silent during the previous portion of the conversation, all of a sudden there are 200 mild-mannered housewives gone wild, hooting and cheering and stomping their feet. And then ...

Ludacris: We can stop when women stop calling themselves bitches.

Sandra Bullock: I don't call any woman a bitch. (pause, then, totally straight-facedly) Unless she is one.

Cut to some kind of language expert, sitting in the crowd. "80 years ago, you could call a woman a broad. We don't do that anymore."

Oh. Really? Whoops.
