Well, for reasons no one is quite coming out and discussing, Terrence Howard won’t be reprising his role as Col. James Rhodes in Iron Man 2, Marvel Studios’ next chance to print money. The rest of the core cast is expected to return, from Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man to Gwyneth Paltrow as the improbably named Pepper Potts. But as Iron Man’s genial sidekick, Howard will be replaced by Don Cheadle. THR is reporting that sources close to the deal reported that Howard’s absence can be partly chalked up to a salary dispute, but is Cheadle really cheaper? Sure, they’ve both been nominated for Oscars, but come on: When you’re looking for a black actor between 35-40 who can bring the drama chops as well as comic relief, Howard’s gotta be 30 cents on the dollar.

Anyway, good luck to Cheadle, and never forget that reading is fundamental and shit:


So Much for "Next Time, Baby"
