Tommy's still working . . . kinda.


From the CMT website:

Hunter S. Thompson or Johnny Knoxville? Neither.

C. Thomas Howell is host, creator and executive producer of Hillbilly Deluxe.

Hillbilly Deluxe is made up of the potential ingredients from Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous big-timing in a small town with a splash of Dirtiest Jobs flirting with Jackass-type segments.

C. Thomas Howell, also known as "Tommy," has an impressive list of credits to his name. As an established actor, writer, director, producer, TV host and radio personality, he is recognized as a Hollywood favorite. A Junior Rodeo champ, at a young age he graced the silver screen in Steven Spielberg's E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Francis Ford Coppola's The Outsiders, The Hitcher, Red Dawn, SoulMan and many others. More recently, his film credits include roles in Hidalgo & H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds. Howell also directed and starred in War of the Worlds 2.


Who knew? Apparently heather did, and she's not happy. At least it's a step up from Soul Man.

Tommy has got bills to pay, stephanie, and he's fallen far off the A-list since the 80s. He's no Rob Lowe.
