No More Terrence Howard
Don Cheadle will be replacing Terrence Howard as James "Rhodey" Rhodes in the upcoming Iron Man 2.
This news certainly comes as a shock to me, since I was pretty sure the Big Three (Downey, Paltrow, Howard) were signed as a unit to the sequel. Apparently there were monetary differences (among others) that drove Howard away from the movie.
I guess if there was any actor to replace him, it would be Don Cheadle (or perhaps Chiwetel Ejiofor). Those guys are always solid, so we shouldn't be expecting the worst here.
