Terrence Howard Reacts To News Of Being Replaced

Terrence Howard has spoken out publicly for the first time since learning his part in “Iron Man 2” had been recast. Last week, Marvel Studios announced through The Hollywood Reporter, that the Hustle and Flow actor would be replaced with fellow actor Don Cheadle.

In a new interview with National Public Radio, Howard admitted he was shocked when he heard the studio had replaced him with Don Cheadle in the sequel to “Iron Man.”

“It was the surprise of a lifetime,” Howard told NPR.

Cheadle will step into the role of Jim Rhodes in the follow up to the summer blockbuster, starring Robert Downey Jr. The decision to go another way with the character, who later becomes fellow armored superhero War Machine, was reportedly based on financial differences between Howard and the studio. But according to Terrence, that news is definitely new news to him.

“I read something in the trades implicating that it was about money or something, but apparently the contracts that we write and sign aren’t worth the paper that they’re printed on, sometimes,” Howard continued in his interview with NPR. “Promises aren’t kept, and good faith negotiations aren’t always held up… The contract just… up and vanished.” Howard stated.
