Arliss Howard (born Leslie Richard Howard; October 18, 1954) is an American actor, writer and film director.
Howard was born in Independence, Missouri in 1954, and graduated from Truman High School and Columbia College at Columbia, Missouri. Howard established his career with stand-out roles in Full Metal Jacket and Ruby. In Till Death Us Do Part (1992), Howard portrayed author and attorney Vincent Bugliosi, who led the prosecution in the Tate-LaBianca murder trial. In 1997, he co-starred in Jurassic Park's sequel, The Lost World: Jurassic Park as Peter Ludlow, Hammond's conniving nephew: a greedy and manipulative businessman.
He has had a recurring role in the CBS weekly drama series Medium and has directed several episodes. Howard has extensive stage credits, including a role in the 2009 revival of August Wilson's Joe Turner's Come and Gone on Broadway. He also starred in and directed the films Big Bad Love and Dawn Anna, both co-written with James Howard, his brother. His wife, Debra Winger, stars in both films. He has two sons, one from a previous marriage and one with Winger (Babe Howard, born 1997). In 2010 he played Kale Ingram, a benignly duplicitous supervisor at an American intelligence agency in the cerebral TV series Rubicon, which was canceled by AMC after 13 episodes. More recently, he appeared in the critically and commercially well-received film Moneyball.
Howard and Winger have appeared together in several productions at the American Repertory Theatre (ART) in Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA.
