Howell in THE OUTSIDERS.

About C. Thomas Howell (1966 –)

C. Thomas Howell was born on December 7th, 1966, in Los Angeles, California.

The "C" stands for Christopher. He has also been known to go by the nicknames C.T. or Tommy.

C. Thomas Howell is the son of bull-rider turned stunt man, Chris Howell. C. Thomas followed in his father's footsteps and found great success in the rodeo as a young pre-teen and teen;(11 years -14 years). From 1978 to 1980, C. Thomas Howell was named All-Around Cowboy by the California Junior Rodeo Association and even did stunt doubling for young actors.

As one of the neighborhood kids, C. Thomas Howell, at the age of sixteen, had his film debut; (billed as Tom), in Steven Spielburg's E.T. THE EXTRA TERRESTRIAL; (1982).

His performance in the coming-of-age film, Francis Ford Coppola's THE OUTSIDERS;(1983), got him noticed by Hollywood agents and filmmakers. Howell played the character, Ponyboy Curtis, a gang member enmeshed in a series of imbroglios. Other actors in this film were Diane Lane, Patrick Swayze, Matt Dillon, and Tom Cruise.

More meaty roles were offered to him, because of his talent, and the fact that he was easy to direct, was open to learning, and got along with everyone. Howell played a high school kid turned guerilla fighter in RED DAWN;(1984). Also, in 1984, Howell played opposite of Jamie Lee Curtis in the film, GRANDVIEW.

C Thomas Howell, in an 2013 interview, reveals that the film that helped him move from being a kid actor to an adult actor was the film, THE HITCHER; (1986). Howell played an unlucky driver stalked by a murderous hitchhiker.

This is still his favorite role that Howell has played. Working with Rutger Hauer, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Jeffrey DeMunn, gave Howell the priceless opportunity to learn about acting in the adult world, how to build a role of the character assigned, and how to make choices. Being the kind of person Howell is, these actors wanted to help him grow in the craft.

Also in 1986, Howell was listed as one of twelve "Promising New Actors of 1986" in John Willis' Screen World, Vol. 38; an event that sky-rockted his film career. Howell has appeared in over 100 feature films, including starring roles in SIDE OUT; (1990), GETTYSBURG; (1993), BABY FACE NELSON;(1996), FATAL AFFAIR; (1998), ASSYLUM DAYS; (2001) and HOBOKEN HOLLOW;(2006). Howell has been able to make a great living as a thespian.

C. Thomas Howell has been married to Sylvie Anderson, since 1992. They have three children: Isabelle;(1993), Dashiell;(1997) and Liam;(2001).

C. Thomas Howell suffered from the aftermath of a burst appendix, in 2003, and was in the hospital for four weeks. He lost forty-five pounds, but this tough, former rodeo star pulled through, and since has fully recovered.

C. Thomas Howell has also been kept busy working on TV series and TV movies. In 2013, he had a returning character on the TV series: CRIMINAL MINDS, AND SOUTHLAND. In 2014, Howell portrayed the character, Weston Stewart, on the hit series, GRIMM.

AN AMISH MURDER and CATEGORY 5;(an adventure yarn), are two of his most recent TV movies, that were broadcast during 2014.

Besides being in films, C. Thomas Howell also is behind the camera now as an owner and producer of Buckwheat Films. He has produced five projects; two of which are TV movies that C. Thomas Howell also wrote: BLIND INJUSTICE and HOPE RANCH.

Another one of the projects he produced is the film, SICK PEOPLE; due to be released probably in 2016. In this film, C. Thomas Howell also plays the title character.

Howell has also had experience in directing seven videos; (1995-2009), and his first feature film, THE GENESIS CODE; (in 2010).
