Based on a true story, The Butler is a film which centers around a White House butler named Eugene Allen, who served eight presidents until his retirement in 1986. Howard, who was originally set to play the role of Eugene, now has a small role in the film.
“I was supposed to play the butler, himself, initially,” Howard told Eurweb earlier this year. “But when Oprah and I were paired against each other the age difference became palpable. So I championed Forest Whitaker to come and take that role.”
Terrence has three kids-two daughters Aubrey and Heaven and a son Hunter- by his ex-wife Lori McCommas. The star later remarried in 2010, but has since divorced.
