Making his debut on the episode "Who Are You, Really?", at the beginning of the the series' sixth season, Arliss plays the role of the owner of a vampire concentration camp.

Howard is married to actress Debra Winger. He has two sons, one from a previous marriage and one with Winger (Babe Howard, born 1997). Howard and Winger have appeared together in several productions at the American Repertory Theatre (ART) in Harvard Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Howard established his career with stand-out roles in Full Metal Jacket and Ruby. In Till Death Us Do Part (1992), Howard portrayed author and attorney Vincent Bugliosi, who led the prosecution in the Tate-LaBianca murder trial. In 1997, he co-starred in Jurassic Park's sequel, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, as Hammond's conniving nephew Peter Ludlow, a greedy and manipulative businessman.
