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.

Howard and Ghent in court Terrence Howard 's attorney says the actor agreed to his 2012 divorce settlement with Michelle Ghent only because he was afraid his ex-wife would leak damning information about his sex life. Brian Kramer seeks to have a Los Angeles court set aside the settlement, claiming it was the product of "heavy-handed acts of extortion and blackmail" on Ghent's part. Speaking during his opening arguments Tuesday, Kramer promised to play the court an audio recording of Ghent making various threats.

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.

Even more impossible to believe - how good everybody still looks. Morris Chestnut moved a preview audience to an ovation merely by removing his T-shirt. He plays an NFL running back who invites his old college pals to his mansion for Christmas, including an old nemesis (Taye Diggs)

WAYWARD PINES . 9 p.m. Wednesday, Fox. WAS EVER A TOWN so ill-named as the one in Wayward Pines ? The community at the heart of Fox's M. Night Shyamalan-produced series doesn't value waywardness. Not in its trees. Not in its people. And as the sci-fi series, based on novels by Blake Crouch, returns Wednesday for a second 10-episode season, the tension between the rugged individualism that we like to think of as the American character and the fear-driven conformity that too often overtakes it is more than ever the focus.

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.
