Terrence Howard Speaks Out on Being Replaced By Don Cheadle in Iron Man Sequel

Actor Terrence Howard says he was surprised to learn that Don Cheadle would replace him as James Rhodes in Iron Man 2, the Oscar nominated actor told National Public Radio on Tuesday.

“There was no explanation, (the contract) just up and vanished,” Howard, who said he read news reports that money was the issue, revealed.

He adds that the contracts he signs apparently “aren’t worth the paper that they’re printed on sometimes.”

While Blindie loves us some Cheadle–who won an Oscar with Howard in 2004’s Crash–we’re sad that Hollywood thinks black actors are so easily replaceable.
