Other roles followed, including the violent Cold War invasion drama Red Dawn, and a co-starring part alongside Jamie Lee Curtis in Grandview, U.S.A.. His career was not helped by the controversial racial comedy Soul Man, which was not well-received. However, he did meet and fall in love with his co-star from that movie, Rae Dawn Chong, whom he later married.Whilst superstardom has eluded him, there's no doubting that Howell has been in consistent demand with film producers. He has notched up in excess of 90 feature film appearances. including starring roles in Side Out, Gettysburg, Baby Face Nelson, Fatal Affair, Asylum Days and Hoboken Hollow.Known as a friendly and likable person to his fans, Howell lives with his current wife Sylvie, and their three children Isabelle, Dashiell & Liam.
