What I think people mistake with Terrance is the friendship of Tony and Rhodey was better developed, but that was a story writing issue, not an acting issue.
Bottom line I can't picture Terrance Howard actually wearing the suit.
Especially the helmet. Imagine how big that helmet would have had to have been. Cheadle and RDJ have fairly skinny heads that are comparable in size so both seem to fit the standard-sized IM helmet. Howard's head looks to be blockier and wider, namely in the jaw and cheek area.
