Ken Howard


Ken Howard has just completed filming on Dreamworks' upcoming feature film, "Dreamer," co-starring Dakota Fanning, Kris Kristofferson and Elisabeth Shue. Howard stars as `Bill Sellers' in a tale about a trainer and his son, who must nurse an injured horse back to health, with an eye on racing him in the Breeders' Cup. "Dreamers" is directed by John Gatins.

He stars in Fox 2000's In Her Shoes (2005), written by Susannah Grant and directed by Curtis Hanson, with Shirley MacLaine, Cameron Diaz and Toni Collette. He starred as Detective Lieutenant Max Cavanaugh on NBC's "Crossing Jordan" (2001). Howard is perhaps best known for his performance as a street-savvy teacher in the classic drama "The White Shadow" (1978), a role he "re-created" in real life as a master class teacher at the American Repertory Theatre Institute and as an instructor at Harvard University and Harvard Law School. His teaching experience helped form the basis of his book, ACT NATURAL How to Speak to Any Audience, published by Random House, 2003.
