Terrence Howard has played almost every role in the book, from a bad guy robbing folks and a heroic hustling pimp to a war colonel and humble South African leader. But his real passion is founded in science.

We all thought Terrence was a bit too quirky to be an actor (jk).

The actor says he has more to offer the world than being a character on the screen.

“I have greater things I can contribute to the world of science than an actor,” the 43-year-old told the Grio. “I had a conversation with Sidney Poitier. I asked him, ‘Why aren’t you going to do another movie?’ And he said, ‘I’m not going to do another impersonation of myself. I might have ten years left in my life, and I don’t want to waste it doing something I’ve already done before.’ If I can’t learn from a character, if I’m just going in and taking from a bag of tricks and choices for a character, I don’t want to do it. It’s pointless for me because I have to grow as a human being, and I don’t want the safe road.”

    He should take time off to understand why his short marriages to non-black women always end up with the women dogging him and walking off with his money.

    He should be a scientist and see if he can find himself a cure for ‘crazy’ and ‘delusional’.
