SpoilerTV has the first photo of Don Cheadle as Col. James ‘Rhodey’ Rhodes in Iron Man 2. The actor was photographed talking on his phone, in costume on set, during the first day of shooting. Meanwhile, Terrance Howard, who played Rhodey in the first film, has been talking about how Marvel betrayed him during contract negotiations. Quote after the jump.
“[Marvel] made a choice. They made a very, very bad choice. They didn’t keep their word. They didn’t honor our contract. They sent everyone out into a field and told them to work and produce a great bounty. You produce a great bounty, and then when it’s all in the storehouse, you are not allowed into the storehouse,” Howard told AceShowbiz. “They did the same thing with Gwyneth [Paltrow], from what I’ve been told. They did it with almost everyone, I think, except Downey throughout the thing. One of the things that actors need to learn to do is take a tip from Friends [whose cast members all held out for higher pay]. You always choose to stick together. One for all and all for one. Our Gang, you know? Let Spanky be our rule.”
