LAST WEEK, I wrote about how the talented Terrence Howard was out as potential star in the movie version of the life of the late Philadelphia civil-rights leader Cecil B. Moore . Moviemakers reportedly had gotten antsy about Howard's messy personal life in light of the NFL's Ray Rice domestic-abuse scandal. Yesterday, more damning news broke about the co-star of "The Butler" and "Iron Man. " TMZ reported that Howard had hidden away some of his fortune from his ex-wife and the courts.

THERE'S an actor going around saying that Terrence Howard can be difficult to work with. And it's Terrence Howard. It seems a harsh thing for Howard to say about Howard, given that he's perhaps the most employed actor in Hollywood - in the last three years he's made 12 movies, 16 episodes of "Law and Order L.A. " and one of "Hawaii Five-O," because a guy needs a vacation. To boot, he has an interesting slate of upcoming movies (his thriller "Dead Man Down" opens Friday). He's just wrapped his contribution to "The Butler," directed by Philly native Lee Daniels, the big-buzz story of an African-American butler (Forest Whitaker)

TERRENCE HOWARD didn't do much research for his role in "Red Tails. " Didn't have to. The movie's story, of the World War II Tuskegee Airmen, was one that he knew by heart. "I'd written reports about them in 1974, 1975. For my dad. That's how my daddy would discipline us," said Howard. "My dad was big on education, so I grew up knowing about the black pilots who shot down Nazi jets, and flew the P-51 Mustang. For me, the Mustang was always the airplane, not the car. " Howard admitted he needed the discipline of his dad's informal home schooling.

Movie actor Terrence Howard was a very desperate daddy. He was on his way home to Philadelphia Thursday night, and his 3-year-old daughter, Heaven Lee, was squirming in her airplane seat. She really, really had to go to the rest-room. Though the seat belt sign was on, Howard tried to whisk the toddler to the restroom before she had an accident. As he began to rush down the aisle, a determined flight attendant blocked his path and firmly told him to return to his seat.

Lenape coach Bucky Williams had the usual worry when playing Rancocas Valley - what to do with Terrence Howard. What he should have been worried about was what to do with Dan McArthur, Lance Jones and Edgar Gantt. With Howard slowed by a knee injury, the rest of the Red Devils picked it up a notch as Rancocas Valley defeated host Lenape, 14-6, yesterday afternoon. Not that Howard didn't help the cause. The senior tailback rushed for 143 yards on 21 carries, but the brace on his knee limited his cutbacks and breakaway speed, according to Rancocas Valley coach David Riley.

PHILLY-BASED actor Christopher Mann has landed what could be the role of a lifetime - portraying legendary civil-rights activist Cecil B. Moore in Tigre Hill's upcoming film, "American Zealot. " A movie about Moore's life would be timely, given all the buzz around the new movie "Selma" and nationwide protests about police brutality following the untimely deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. "I know he'd have a problem with the way things are," Mann, 50, said of Moore - a Philadelphia lawyer and politician who headed up the local NAACP and led the fight to integrate Girard College.

An Oliver Twisty urban fairy tale, August Rush is about an orphan, a musical prodigy who in his heart believes that his parents are still alive and that he can find them through his music. As directed by Kirsten Sheridan, coauthor of the transcendent In America , this piece of magical realism is the movie equivalent of football's Hail Mary pass. The plot is preposterous. Particularly the part about a kid who has never before played an instrument, but can pick up a guitar and play like Eric Clapton and belly up to a church organ and perform like Mozart.

There are few television characters who can call a rival "Boo Boo Kitty" and make it seem like the most searing insult ever uttered. But that is the genius of Cookie Lyon, played by Taraji P. Henson, in Fox's insanely popular Empire . The show, which ends its first buzzworthy season Wednesday night with a two-hour finale, has a strong Philadelphia flavor. Creator Lee Daniels hails from here. The show's star, Terrence Howard, calls the area home. Bryshere Gray, who plays the youngest Lyon, Hakeem, and is the voice behind the show's breakout song, "Drip Drop," is from West Philly.

Lee Daniels is ticking off some of the guest stars who will appear this season in his hit Fox series Empire , a dazzling look inside the music industry: Cuba Gooding Jr., Mary J. Blige, Naomi Campbell, Mariah Carey, Courtney Love, Lenny Kravitz, Foxy Brown, Snoop Dogg, and in the 12th and final episode, Daniels' fellow Philadelphian, Patti LaBelle. Oh, and Denzel Washington. "Denzel hasn't done television in 30 years," the dapper director says. "But he saw the pilot and said, 'I've got to be a part of this.' " Such a stellar roster seems almost like overkill when you've already got two Academy Award nominees - Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson - as Lucious and Cookie Lyon, the leads in your hip-hop soap opera.

HE'S HERE! Rocky himself, Sylvester Stallone , was spotted in town this weekend, especially in the Midtown Village area, where I got reports of Sly shopping at I. Goldberg (1300 Chestnut St.) and strolling down 13th Street with a pal. I'm sure he'll catch a bite or two with buddy Harry Jay Katz while here, as well. Stallone, of course, is in town to start shooting "Creed," the "Rocky" sequel starring Michael B. Jordan ("Friday Night Lights," "Fruitvale Station") as Adonis Creed, the grandson of the Italian Stallion's rival-turned-bestie, Apollo Creed (played by Carl Weathers in the original "Rocky," who was, alas, killed by Communism in the form of Dolph Lundgren 's Ivan Drago, in 1985's "Rocky IV")

Fancier than a suit blazer, yet lacking the formality of a tuxedo, the dinner jacket is back. But its millennial fit is tighter. And with elements borrowed from its laid-back, older brother the smoking jacket - velvety fabrications, shawl collars, satin trim and the occasional scarf as accessory - expect to see the jazzed-up menswear classic at both local charity balls and celebrity red carpets. It certainly held court with all things strapless and sweetheart at Sunday's Golden Globes.

WORD HAS IT that the ever-so-talented Terrence Howard was being considered to star in the movie version of the life of the late Philadelphia civil-rights leader Cecil B. Moore . But that was before the powers that be in Hollywood backed away amid concerns about Howard's messy personal life. Two of his ex-wives have alleged that Howard, who co-starred in films such as "The Butler" and "Iron Man," physically abused them. In light of heightened sensitivities stemming from the headlines surrounding the NFL's Ray Rice domestic-abuse scandal, some involved with the project were nervous about moving forward with Howard.
