Howerton also starred as an emergency room nurse in Crank (2006), and reprised the role again in the sequel Crank: High Voltage. He planned to be executive producing a new show, Boldly Going Nowhere (which has since been shelved), with his It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia co-creators. He also had a recurring role on The Cleveland Show as Ernie, Lester's son. He has a recurring role as an attorney on Fox's The Mindy Project. He has also starred in Everything Must Go the 2010 film that also starred Will Ferrell.[5]
