After so many years in Hollywood, Terrence Howard knows how to keep his cool in front of the press.  On the set of Law & Order: Los Angeles, however, it's a completely different story.

Check out these behind-the-scenes outtakes of Howard, alongside co-stars Corey Stoll, Megan Boone, Skeet Ulrich and Rachel Ticotin.
