Hollywood’s Howard brothers have a book deal.
67-year-old filmmaker-actor Ron Howard and his younger brother Clint, who were both child actors, have written The Boys; A Memoir of Hollywood and Family.
Ron played Opie on “The Andy Griffith Show” and Richie Cunningham on “Happy Days” and 61-year-old Clint appeared on “Gentle Ben” and “Star Trek.”
The book is set for release in October. According to the Howards, The Boys was first inspired by the death of their father, actor Rance Howard.
“When our dad passed in 2017, Clint and I began reflecting upon our lives and realized that while our childhoods seemed normal, they were anything but,” Ron Howard said in a statement.
