So you're offended by "kid" but you can call me "dense"? LOL.

Second if you can quote what I wrote and still pretend you don't get what I was saying...you're the dense one.

Class dismissed.

That might carry some weight if not for 2 things:

1. you misspelled grammar
2. my work has been published in multiple places (law reviews, newspapers, white papers)

Most people dont really take their time with internet posts.

Owned. Here's a tip for him: avoid resorting to attacking the opponent's grammar or sentence structure. The odds are incredibly high you've made previous mistakes and/or are bound to make mistakes in future posts. Plus, it brings attention to the fact that you've likely -- if not completely -- lost the argument.

Here's a tip for everyone: participate in the discussion by contributing something relevant to Don Cheadle being cast in Iron Man 2, because, well, grammar isn't.

I think he means "leading man" roles, not movies he has starred in, so he can see them movies online.

His part in the Ocean Trilogy is not big, leading--just a supporting character (he was better in -another piece of junk- Traffic, if you ask me) I wanna see him in bigger roles. And I've seen Crash.. which is something I fully regret and will refret for the rest of my life [/drama]

Terrence Howard says was surprised to learn that Don Cheadle would replace him in "Iron Man 2."

"It was the surprise of a lifetime," the actor and musician told National Public Radio on Tuesday. "There was no explanation, (the contract) just up and vanished."

Howard said he read news reports that money was the issue, saying the contracts he signs apparently "aren't worth the paper that they're printed on sometimes."

Cheadle assumes the role of James Rhodes, a character that becomes Iron Man's sidekick War Machine in the comics, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Robert Downey Jr. will reprise his role as weapons mogul Tony Stark.

Howard, who also starred in "Hustle & Flow," is promoting his new album "Shine Through It."
Didn't see this posted anywhere so I'm sorry if it's old.

I like Don Cheadle, but I hate recasting and really didn't have a problem with Terrance Howard and was looking forward to seeing him don the War Machine armor.

If Terrance Howard wasnt already casted (im taking the stance that they should stick with him) I think he would be really great. I never even thought of him till now. He needs a comeback.

This article is about a week old, but I didn't see it posted anywhere else.

It's pretty interesting:

Terrence Howard Calls ‘Iron Man’ Casting Switch A ‘Surprise,’ Marvel Studios President Says ‘No Comment’

Published by Shawn Adler on Monday, October 20, 2008 at 9:58 am.

The Internet caught fire last week with the surprising news that Don Cheadle was replacing Terrence Howard in “Iron Man 2,” shocking not just fans and commentators across the net, but Terrence Howard himself?

“It was the surprise of a lifetime. There was no explanation. [The contract] just…up and vanished,” Howard told NPR, sounding genuinely hurt and surprised.

As easy and as tempting as it is to side with Howard, especially given his tireless enthusiasm for the project, which he has been talking up since spring 2007, there are two sides to every story. What’s Marvel’s take?

“No comment,” Marvel Studios President of Production Kevin Feige told MTV News on the Cheadle/Howard switch in an interview on Friday (before Howard’s comment was broadcast).

Why no comment? Interestingly, Feige seemed to imply that nothing as yet was set in stone – with Howard or Cheadle.

“As is the policy with most people, when you talk about dotting I’s and crossing T’s, certainly that isn’t the case yet on a number of things we’re doing,” he said, later making the same statement regarding Kenneth Branagh and “Thor” (take that for what you will). “But that [‘Hollywood Reporter’ story] was not an announcement. That was, as it tends to happen in the business, is rumors and leaks and things like that. I do think there will be clarity soon.”


Mr. Feige, we’ll be ready to listen when you’re ready to talk.

Personally, I think Don Cheadle is an excellent choice for Rhodey. In my opinion, he is a very versatile actor with a more impressive resume than Terrence Howard. I didn't even know who Terrence Howard was until he was cast in Iron Man. And then when I saw Howard in Iron Man, his voice bugged me. I kept thinking, "Really? That's what War Machine's voice is going to sound like? Crap..."

I find it amusing, too, that people don't think Cheadle has the right build for War Machine. Why? Because he's not tall? Robert Downey Jr. isn't all that tall either, in fact he's probably right around the same height as Cheadle. Granted, War Machine should be a bit larger than Iron Man... but these guys are putting on suits of armor. As long as the armor looks good and it's believable that Cheadle is inside it, that's perfectly fine by me.

Don't get me wrong, I hate re-casting... especially when there's no apparent reason for it. So I would prefer that Howard came back for the role, for consistancy's sake. But now that Cheadle is in, I kinda wish they would've cast him from the beginning.

^ Have you only seen Don Cheadle in the Ocean's Eleven movies?

Don Cheadle is american. He was born in Kansas City. Had an english accent in Ocean's Eleven, an african accent in Hotel Rwanda, and no accent at all in Reign Over Me.
