Don Cheadle to Play Jim Rhodes in Iron Man 2

Wow, that is a bit of a surprise, isn't it?

I always just assumed that Howard's contract had some sort of clause to be in Iron Man 2 in a bigger role, but apparently, the role was just saved for him, they still had to come to an agreement on price, and they couldn't, so Don Cheadle is taking over for Iron Man 2, which presumably will include Jim Rhodes donning armor, as well.

I like Cheadle as an actor better than Howard, so I guess this is good news, although Howard is a bulkier guy - I guess Cheadle will have to work out a lot.
