About Tommy:

The son of a professional bull rider turned stuntman, C. Thomas Howell started working in the film
industry at the age of seven. In 1981, he was cast of ‘Tyler’ in Steven Spielberg’s E.T. The Extra
Terrestrial. Shortly thereafter, he nabbed the lead in Francis Ford Coppola’s classic, The Outsiders,
starring opposite the likes of Diane Lane, Patrick Swayze, Matt Dillon and Tom Cruise. It was
Howell’s gripping performance as the tough, yet vulnerable ‘Ponyboy Curtis’ in The Outsiders that
made him a household name virtually overnight.

Earmarked as one of the most promising young actors on the 1980s, Howell’s career soon skyrocketed with roles in films such as the cold war invasion drama Red Dawn, the psychological thriller The Hitcher, and the hilarious but controversial college farce Soul Man. Since then, Howell has been in consistent demand with filmmakers for the last thirty years, appearing in favorites such as That Night, Gettysburg and Hidalgo.

Howell has found himself cast in several recurring roles in three popular television series such as: Outcast for Cinemax TV, Stitchers on Freeform TV and Showtime’s Ray Donovan. Howell has appeared in the Marvel/Netflix series, the Punisher as well as the hit CBS-TV series Seal Team. Howell can also be seen in the CW’s Dynasty series, CBS’ McGyver and AMC’s Walking Dead. He also co-starred opposite Woody Harrelson in the Rob Reiner directed feature film LBJ. Additionally, Howell also had recurring roles on NBC’s long, running drama series The Blacklist with James Spader and Bravo’s Girlfriends Guide to Divorce.

Howell co-starred as the unpredictable Officer Bill “Dewey” Dudek in the TNT Smash hit drama series Southland as well as appearing in a special episode of Hawaii 5-0 while also making several guest appearances as the serial killer, “The Reaper” on CBS’ Criminal Minds. His many television appearances include The Glades on A&E as well as Torchwood on the Starz Channel and TNT’s Animal Kingdom. He also played a key role in Sony’s blockbuster film, The Amazing Spider Man.
Most recently, Howell reprised his role of Ray, in Season 11, the final season of the Walking Dead. He also finished filming the biographical historical drama film Reagan, where he plays the controversial politician, Casper Weinberger. The film is scheduled for 2022 release.

Outside of his acting career, Howell is an accomplished team roper, enjoys a good game of golf, loves playing his guitar and writing songs and spending as much time as possible on the ranch and being with his family.
