Empire stars Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard are joining forces once again to host Spike TV’s Guys Choice Awards, airing June 18 at 9 p.m. EDT. In preparation for the big night on Spike, Henson and Howard have been participating in promos for the cable channel, and the funniest one so far is their blooper reel.
There’s no doubt that Henson and Howard have chemistry stemming back to their movie Hustle & Flow, and in a recent interview with People magazine, Howard spoke about their work habits.
“[Taraji] needs [to have] the last word, the last look, and I don’t know how to give up any ground,” Howard explained. “I told her, ‘You will never steal a frame from me. And don’t you let me take a frame from you.’ That’s our thing with each other.”
And that’s exactly what’s going on in their blooper reel.
From Howard teasing Henson by saying that she looks like RuPaul to Henson embarrassingly stroking the horns of a mastodon, the two prove that their comedic timing and personalities mesh perfectly. Chances are many of their fans will tune in to the award show, not because they love Spike TV but to see what happens when they host.
