Ron Howard

From the earliest days of his career to the present day, Ron Howard’s landmark achievements in both film and television as an actor, writer, director, and producer have entertained and inspired audiences the world over.

Through his production company Imagine Entertainment, which he cofounded with Brian Grazer in 1986, Howard continues to break ground with riveting projects including Genius, The Super Models, The Dynasty: New England Patriots, and the highly anticipated upcoming films Jim Henson Idea Man and Eden, which are testaments to his visionary artistry and enduring impact.
