Pride (Movie - 2007), Terrence Howard

(Pride: Saeed Adyani)

First came Rocky Balboa. Then, Invincible’s Vince Papale. Make way for Philly’s newest long shot. Oscar nominee Terrence Howard plays Jim Ellis, who, with the help of a graying janitor (Bernie Mac) and a group of troubled teens, founded the City of Brotherly Love’s first African-American swim team in the mid-1970s. We love the smell of chlorine in the morning… smells like victory! (March 23)
