Rip Pretty Tony. I like the scene on The Mack, when he called the racist cop, "A beat-walkin' MuthaFuckuh" Classic.

Where are video clips of his work? Can he get a video clip of rememberance, too? Must not be any drama behind his death. I guess that's why Whitney, Etta, and Don C. got more than one post each when they died.

Worst Black History Month, ever!

@ 8:40 AM, He's another one that's worth more dead than alive to the power elite. They'll be re-branding and re-packaging and re-selling movies he starred in, too. TO them he's considered a product and not a person.

Rest in Peace, "Pretty Tony". At least once a month I look at my collection of 70's Black movies. You will forever be a classic.

10:56 AM, Terence needs to deal with his own real life divorce drama before trying to play anybody.

Terrance Howard did for pimps in the 2K with Hustle just as Ron O' neal did for pimps in the 70's with superfly

Terrance can do this like Pacino did for Scarface

RIP Mr. Williams. Loved him as Bleek Gilliam's father in Mo' Betta. He was a great actor. Very distinguished man. I looked over his body of work and it is very impressive. He was a character actor so he appeared in many projects that may not have stood out in people minds but he certainly put his SAG card to work! He was a true thespian 'til the end. A wonderful work ethic. Wishing you a peaceful transition, Brotha!

ok 8:44 AM

AND.... why don't you suck "A" big dick? How's that for a grip on the English language? Next time you're trying to correct someone, don't forget your punctuation at the end of a sentence...maybe a period if you weren't so busy on yours.

Hate ma'fukkas trying to correct $hit when their $hit is fukked up too...h.a.f.s.

Re-makes that Terrance can do:

Terrance can be intimidating without pulling a gun/knife
Terrance can be a good villian with heart, he's a character actor not a movie star.

They should rE-MAKE " SuperFly" starring Terrance Howard.

Do a "Werewolf" movie becoz he has the eyes.

Thatz my nigga in the end.

He'll blow Denzel and Don Cheadle off the screen.
