Robert Downey Jr. Addresses Terrence Howard Firing

There has been a lot of talk about Terrence Howard being fired from Iron Man and being replaced by Don Cheadle for the sequel. But no one in the cast or crew has come forward with the reason for the change, until now. Robert Downey Jr. sat down with MTV News and commented on the situation.

He said, "I had nothing to do with that decision. I love Terrence very very much. That’s all I’ll say because I haven’t talked to him yet." He adds, "I’ve always admired Don. It’s one of those situations where I still don’t quite know what happened or why. Here’s what happens too: things happen and you wind up commenting on them before you’ve actually talked to the people and it’s in poor taste."

"We’ve just got to keep rolling up our sleeves higher and further up the elbow. If we show up and we’re in the right head space and our heart’s in the right spot and we really think about the audience at every turn and we don’t try to stamp our hipness onto anything. It’s very interactive."

Hmmm, didn’t exactly answer the question, did he?! We’ll just have to assume it’s because of money.
