Here are some recent (& not so recent) tidbits on casting upcoming projects. Enjoy.
New News – Iron Man 2: So reports are out that Terrence Howard is not returning to Iron Man 2 but will be replaced by Don Cheadle. My first temper-tantrum like reaction is, “NOOOOOOOOOOO! NOOOOOOO….. wait…Don…Don Cheadle…….that….that could be…..cool.” While Robert Downey Jr’s performance & Jon Favreau’s direction & commitment to invisible CGI were the top reasons for Iron Man’s success, Downey was also backed up by a solid supporting cast. I enjoyed Howard as Stark’s friend & military liaison James Rhodes, especially seeing a high ranking colonel with his strange little girl voice. But let’s face it, Don Cheadle is an amazing actor & can easily fill & maybe even improve the role. While I will miss what Howard would have done as War Machine, I very much look forward to seeing what Cheadle will do.
In a side note, while on tour promoting Tropic Thunder, RDJ reported that when the first pictures of him in black-face came out, Cheadle called him & asked, “Are you playing the black me?”
Fall is here & that means – Oscar season! Yes, a few inspirational films scattered throughout a bunch of movies to slit-your-wrists-by. Guess which ones I prefer.
On the heels of Oscar season comes the holiday movie season. Blockbuster tentpole releases, family films (some crappy, some fun), & a few Oscar stragglers.
Here are a few upcoming releases that I’m excited about. Hmmm… they all come out within 5 days of each other.
