"...an iconic book, that is "On The Road," it's incredible that this project is being made. Because this project, lets say... it's property of Francis Ford Coppola. He bought the wrights of the book like 25 years ago, and there's been innumerable opportunities that it's attempted to carry out, and for one reason or another it's never been done. In fact, we've been trying to make this with Walter [Salles] for four years now, and [the opportunity] finally arise.
I'm very excited. this project is very... it's a challenge. Because every time you work with a well known book, an iconic book, it's already hard to make on a cinematographic level. But in this case in particular, it's also a musical challenge, because all the beats poets have a very important relation with music, and with a particular music style that's the Bebop, and a period of time that was very important in music. In that time, people like John Cage, Harry Partch, and Harry Parker became known. That's something that makes me very excited and that presents me a challenge and I love that."

Terrence Howard Talks About On the Road

‘Law and Order: Los Angeles’ Star Terrence Howard on ‘Echo Park,’ Learning Legalease, and Filming “On the Road”

As for concurrent film projects, you’re also going to be shooting director Walter Salles’ adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s “On the Road.” Who do you play in that?

That’s one of the things I’m going to do, but I’m only working a couple days on that. As actors, we’re all banding together [for the film] under a common goal and aiding each other so we can get to a point where we can survive this economic winter that they’re facing. I like the movement at present, because “On the Road” is composed of a lot of really great actors. Young Garrett Hedlund [of the upcoming "Tron: Legacy"] is finally getting his opportunity; he’s such a brilliant piece of work. I play the saxophonist. I don’t know if we’re going to stick with his name at present, but I believe we will. But i like calling myself the saxophonist.
