Doug Howard (I) was only a special thanks:
Doug Howard (IV) is the only one who's an actor. I'm watching the show he was in right now to see if it's him or not.
EDIT: I have NO idea if he's in the show or not. I watched both episodes and never ONCE heard the name "Michael Ferguson," or any short forms of it. There is a boy in the show that *might* be him though. Hard to tell and I don't think they ever said his name.
EDIT part 2: I FOUND HIM!!!
He probably isn't any of the IMDB people. He's a musician (duh to me!). He was part of a few bands, the newest being Reservoir Road and he has an album out this year!
Yay me for finding him and his official website!:
You can listen to some of his music in the media section:
He's also Chief Operating Partner of Lodestar Entertainment, llc:
