Last week it was announced that Terrence Howard wouldn’t be back as James ‘Rhodey’ Rhodes for the “Iron Man” sequel. THR speculated that Don Cheadle had been bought in to replace Howard because the Oscar Nominee was asking for too much money to reprise his role.
Not so, according to Howard.
The actor tells NPR radio that he was absolutely shocked to be left out of the sequel – and has no idea why?!
“It was the surprise of a lifetime,” he said. “There was no explanation. [The contract] just…up and vanished. 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. Promises aren’t kept, and good faith negotiations aren’t always held up.”
Mystery. Wonder when Favs is going to bring it up?
