He also appears on the radio that year in a commercial for [[Little Lacy Surprise]] and as an imaging voice on [[Emotion 98.3]]. In [[1986]], he appeared in the ''[[Evacuator]]'' sequel, titled ''[[Exploder: Evacuator Part II]]''. In the next three years, he appeared in films titled ''Annihilator'', and ''Zero Seconds to Death''.

By [[1989]] Howitzer's popularity had eventually declined and his career slowed down. He released ''[[Special Needs Cop]]'' in [[1992]], a severely politically incorrect film in which he endangers the lives of special needs children and other innocents. He also became delusional, believing that his movies were real and the [[wp:Soviet Union|Soviet Union]] could still attack (despite the fact they had collapsed in 1991). In 1992, He was interviewed on [[West Coast Talk Radio|WCTR's]] [[Entertaining America]] show where he accidentally and fatally shot host [[Billy Dexter]] (Jack thought that his gun wasn't loaded), also shooting at others on the scene. Jack was later put on trial for murder and faced the death penalty, although the outcome of the trial is not revealed. When interviewed by WCTR in a [[Los Santos (3D Universe)|Los Santos]] prison awaiting trial, he admits to killing the original [[Ho Chi]] from the Exploder movies, also demanding his prison bitch act like her.

In GTA IV, the [[Weazelnews.com|Weazel News website]] in [[The Ballad of Gay Tony]] reveals that Howitzer instead served [[1993|15 years]] in prison for shooting Dexter, was paroled by [[2008]], and was now set to have his own reality show.

In the show, a [[Rufus Bellows|man]] is trying to talk Jack down from doing anything impulsive and to pitch a comeback film about Jack Howitzer, though apparently no one wants to be a part of it or make it, presumably both because of Howitzer's erratic and impulsive behavior and because the script is apparently too dated for present day.
