NEW YORK, New York — Filmmaker-actor Ron Howard and actor Clint Howard are brothers, former child stars and fellow Hollywood veterans.
They'll now share their unusual story in book-length form.
The Howards have a deal with William Morrow for “The Boys: A Memoir of Hollywood and Family.” It's scheduled to come out Oct. 12.
According to William Morrow, a HarperCollins imprint, the book arose in part out of public curiosity over a perennial question asked to Ron Howard: What was it like to grow up on television?
The book was also inspired by the death in 2017 of their father, actor Rance Howard.
