Terrence Howard is ready to close the door on his acting career. During a recent red carpet appearance for the Peacock series The Best Man: The Final ChaptersHoward was questioned by entertainment tonight Kevin Frazier.
Frazier appeared to ask the 53-year-old if the Peacock series would be the last viewers would see The best man Plot.
The last hurrah – is this really the end? I mean come on let’s be honest is that Yes, really the end?
This is the end for me. This is the end for me. I don’t know if it’s the end for the others. But for me, you know, I mostly retired two years ago. I was ready. And it took care of the little things.
I asked Sidney Poitier 10 years ago if he still wanted to work and he said, ‘Why should I spend my last 10 years spending myself?’ And that’s what I came to do. I’ve gotten to the point where I’ve done my best as an actor now. Now I enjoy watching other new talent come along and I don’t want to impersonate myself anymore.

Howard says there are ‘better actors out there’
As the conversation continued, Frazier asked Howard a question.
So you’re ready to hand over the reins?
“Yes!” Howard replied emphatically.
There are some better actors who can do things I’ve never been able to do. So, I want to applaud them, I want to be amazed by what they’re doing.
Howard looks back on his career
Frazier then asks Howard for some advice he would give to his younger self.
I would say slow down. I’d say it’s not going to happen as quickly as you would like, and most likely it won’t. You won’t change her mind, keep your lane [and] Stop trying to make it better for everyone else…I was putting a lot of energy into hurting myself and trying to open the door for others who quickly slammed the door after they got in.
Howard said he would advise his younger self to “take care of yourself” and “defend your integrity.”
If someone is after your name, attack them – with everything you have. defend your name That’s the only thing I would say to myself.
