I hate recasts, especially for huge hit films that everyone has seen. However, there is a plus to this, because if there was anything wrong with Iron Man
, it was Terrence Howard as Rhodes. Maybe Howard was told to act the way he did, or maybe not, but he sure as hell was not the tough ass Rhodes from the comics. Not only did he seem a bit punk-ish, but he did not have enough bass in his voice.
Do not get me wrong, Terrence Howard is a fantastic actor, but he was seriously more tough in Big Momma's House
than in Iron Man
. I hate recasts, but when the successor is a superior actor, it eases the pain. Go ahead, Don Cheadle.
