Women in Entertainment 2010 - Power 100 List
For years, Howard has maintained a singular client list, including such vets as Michael Caine, Holly Hunter and Samuel L. Jackson (who recently signed a deal with Marvel for an option to star in nine films as Nick Fury), along with new sensations such as Eric Stonestreet (ABC’s Modern Family). What’s her secret? “I’m passionate, and people know I’m not full of shit,” says Howard, who began her career in the mid-’70s as a casting director (Stir Crazy, Tootsie). The statistics speak for themselves: During a quarter-century as an agent, Howard has helped her clients land 15 Academy Award nominations, 71 Emmy nominations and 59 Golden Globe nominations. This year, two of her clients, Laura Linney and Christopher Walken, were nominated for Tony Awards. In February, she stepped down from her post as ICM’s head of motion picture talent, but she has no plans to retire anytime soon. “I like action,” says Howard, who recently signed a new three-year deal. “You sign someone, it’s exciting.”
