Howard is so insignificant and out of touch in Hollywood that Tarantino stopped by probably because he's ADD and can't say no.
Howard gave his "wha, wha, never heard of it , it must suck, he's a douche" to Matthew McCouneghey the other morning for Magic Mike. Just so happens that day mcconaughey was awarded best supporting actor by the NY Film Critics. Articles are saying he's likely to win an Oscar. (Read it on roger ebert web site). So much for America's Judge.
