Don Cheadle is a lovely man and skilled thespian. I thoroughly enjoyed his work as Ice Tray in “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” That being said, he is not worthy enough to replace Terrence Howard in “Iron Man 2.” That’s because, nobody is worthy enough. You just can’t replace The Howard.
According to The Hollywood Reporter (via CS), Don will play Col. James/War Machine opposite Robert Downey Jr. in the sequel. Terry Howard had the role in the first movie, but a deal couldn’t be reached. A source said it was over “over financial differences, among other reasons.”
You know what the “among other reasons” is. BABY WIPES! It’s a deal breaker for Terry, remember? He probably wanted it in his contract that all females on the set must be “baby wipes fresh” at all times when he is around. The producers should have given him whatever he wanted, because that shit show is going to tank without him. By “tank” I mean it’s going to make a gazillion dollars. That’s okay, Terry still has music career. Elevators will always need music.
