 In 1999, he was honored with the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor, an Independent Spirit Award nomination and a Chicago Film Critics Association Award nomination for his role as “Quentin” in “The Best Man.” He also won an NAACP Image Award in 2011 for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for “Law and Order: Los Angeles.” He is perhaps best known for his Golden Globe®- and Academy Award®-nominated work in “Hustle & Flow,” as well as for his supporting role in the film “Crash,” for which he received a National Board of Review Award for Best Breakthrough Performance.  He won the 2015 BET Award for Best Actor for his role as “Lucious Lyon” on “Empire.”

In addition to “Empire”, Howard has been seen in “The Best Man Holiday”; “Prisoners,” with Hugh Jackman; “Lee Daniels’ The Butler”; “Dead Man Down”; Robert Redford’s “The Company You Keep”; “On the Road”; “Winnie” where Howard portrayed Nelson Mandela opposite Jennifer Hudson; “Valerie Flake”; “Best Laid Plans”; “August Rush”; “The Brave One”; and the Academy Award®-nominated “Ray.” In 2008, he made his Broadway debut in an all-African-American production of Tennessee Williams’ “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.” A self-taught musician, Howard displayed his musical talents in “Ray” as Ray Charles’ one-time guitarist, Gossie McKee; and in “Hustle & Flow,” as the rapper “Djay,” in which he performed all the tracks for his character, including “It’s Hard Out Here For A Pimp,” which won the Academy Award® for Best Original Song.
