If there's actually a War Machine spinoff movie, I'd be shocked...

    I don't get it. I did the math. How many white actors have been replaced by white actors? I,876,954, that's how many. What are y'all talking about?

    Color, cuteness or ugliness aside, whatever, this right here: Don Cheadle is an amazing actor but he was unable to reproduce the chemistry with Robby downy Jr and Terrence Howard. That's all she wrote! Chemistry not the same.

    I still love Cheadle...but not as Rhodey.

    Don Cheadle is a good actor but he is so ugly. I am sorry to say I would rather watch a movie with the very attractive Terrance Howard than Don Cheadle. I also think it is disturbing that Hollywood thinks they can replace one black actor with another. There is nothing about Don Cheadle that says he has the ability to be a star.

    Orville, them's fighting words. I'd rather see good actor in good films than a cute/passably attractive (Terrence isn't "very attractive" by a long shot) actor in a mainstream film. Don was really good as Sammy Davis and Petey Green and Hotel Rwanda was wonderful. Maybe he's not your cup of tea but he can be a star ... a black star if he isn't there already. Hopefully his Miles Davis project will be completed and it will catapult his value through the roof.

    And of course Hollywood thinks they can replace one black actor with another. They're not that valuable and I bet most [white] people would even notice it if they had two black actors playing one role in one film.

    Support our own heroes or keep playing second fiddle to The Man.

    It's as simple as that.

    An Actual superhero film with a black lead i don't think so. Hollywood has chosen profiting big dumb blockbusters instead taking risks on diversity.

    I don't know. Sounds like Cheadle says: business.

    The way I heard it, Howard and the studio mixed it up over money. And *that* reminded me of Bruce Lee in the "Dragon" movie, wherein he contemplates who could possibly play the lead character in the "Kung-Fu" tv series EXCEPT him?...

    And Bruce Lee had a helluva lot better argument than Terrence Howard had.

    For some reason this reminds me of the scene in Bamboozled when Manray quit the show and a black-faced Michael Rapaport says: "Nigga's like you are a dime a dozen. I'm gonna slide Honeycutt right into ya spot. We won't miss a step." Then he hires an eager Honeycutt right on the spot.
