During his appearance, Paul reflected on his performances in Howard’s biographical comedy Private Parts (1997), in the Jim Carrey-starring Man on the Moon (1999), in the sports biopic Cinderella Man (2005) featuring Russell Crowe, and more.

Last month, after Paul shouted out him out, Howard thanked the Holdovers star for the kinds words.

“He was great in the movie Private Parts … and because I was new to film acting I didn’t even realize how good the guy was. When I would watch [our] scenes back, I went ‘Oh my God, look what he’s doing there. He’s so in the character and he’s so good,’” Howard said, adding, “He made my job easy.”

“He was perfect in it,” fellow Private Parts star Robin Quivers agreed.

“He was just a wonderful moment in my life,” Howard concluded. “So, if I ever do another movie, boy I would want him in it.”
