C. Thomas Howell is an American actor best known for his 80s portrayals of teenage rebels, appearances in crime thrillers, and for being a minor member of the "Brat Pack". He came to media attention for having a part in the film E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial and is best known for having starred in the films The Outsiders and The Hitcher, as well as Soul Man and Red Dawn.

Early LifeEdit

Christopher Thomas Howell, nicknamed either "Tommy" or "CT", was born on December 7, 1966 in Van Nuys, California, one of four children of Christopher "Chris" and Candice Howell. He has two sisters, Stacy and Candi, and a brother, John. His father worked as a stunt coordinator ever since his son was six. As a young boy, Howell wanted to be a stuntman and was even a child stunt player. He began acting at the age of four, when cast in the Brian Keith Show in an episode called "The Little People".

When Howell was young, his parents divorced, leaving his mother with both of her sons and daughter Stacy, and his father took little Candi with him. Howell shared his time with either parent and started his career through his father's job. When he was twelve, he became a rodeo champion at the California Junior Rodeo Association and was named "All-Around Cowboy" in August 1979. While growing up, he also spent time golfing with his grandfather (where his nickname "CT" came because that's how he was recorded on screen boards).

On Criminal MindsEdit

In the Season Four episode Omnivore, Howell portrayed George Foyet, a vicious serial/spree killer that returns in To Hell and Back, part 2, and the Season Five episodes Nameless, Faceless and, finally, 100. He reprised the role in the Season Nine episode Route 66.
