Steve Howey

Actor Steve Howey spent a large part of his childhood out to sea – literally, having grown up on a sailboat cruising up and down the Pacific coastline – which couldn’t be a better metaphor for the wave of success he’s ridden in his acting career.

Howey will next be seen in the independent romantic comedy UNLEASHED opposite Justin Chatwin and rising comedy star Kate Micucci (GARFUNKEL AND OATES). He recently appeared in the indie films IN YOUR EYES with Nikki Reed and Jennifer Grey and SEE YOU IN VALHALLA opposite Modern Family star Sarah Hyland.

Howey’s other film credits include SOMETHING BORROWED with Kate Hudson and John Krasinski, BRIDE WARS, also with Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway, and the independent feature LOSING CONTROL. 

His numerous television credits include SONS OF ANARCHY, JENNIFER FALLS, NEW GIRL, PSYCH and REBA, which was the first series regular role of his career, playing Van Montgomery for the show’s entire six year run.

Born in San Antonio, Texas, Howey spent his early childhood growing up on sailboats with his parents, navigating and fishing the waters of the Pacific coast from California to Baja. A basketball scholarship took him to a junior college in Colorado, but he quickly retired his jersey in favor of acting classes. Howey studied with his father Bill Howey, and shortly thereafter decided to pursue acting full time.

Howey lives in Los Angeles with his family.
