This Marvel Star Was Only Given 2 Hours To Decide If They Wanted Their Role!
Imagine if Chris Evans was not Captain America or Mark Ruffalo was not Hulk, Avengers would have been completely different. Sometimes actors are given tight deadlines and can easily lose their parts. Recently, one Marvel star, Don Cheadle, revealed that he was given only 2 hours to decide about his role.
While he already had a successful film career, Don Cheadle got global recognition after joining Marvel world
He began his career as an actor playing a small role in a TV show called Hill Street Blues. However, Don Cheadle went ahead to star in multiple award-winning films and got an Oscar nomination for Hotel Rwanda. Apart from that, Cheadle has worked in films like Boogie Nights, Crash, Ocean’s Thirteen and Reign Over Me. In 2010, he became a Marvel star when he replaced Terrence Howard in Iron Man 2. Since then, he has been playing War Machine in all Iron Man and Avengers films. However, the future for Marvel star’s character in the next phase is uncertain.
Recently, Marvel star revealed that he was given only 2 hours to make a decision about his role
In the middle of his kid’s birthday party, Don Cheadle was contacted by some people from Marvel. While talking about it, Marvel star said:
“But they said, ‘Hey, this is the role. We want you to do this. It’s a six-picture deal.’ I was like, ‘What?! Oh, uh, okay…’ And I’m trying to do the math. I’m like, ‘That’s 11 or 12 years. I’m not sure.’ And they’re like, ‘Well, we need to know, because if you’re not saying yes, then we’re gonna move on to the next person. So you’ve got an hour’. An hour to decide 12 years, and a role and parts that I don’t even know, in movies that are coming down that I have no idea what they’ll be.”
Furthermore, he said:
“I said, ‘I’m at my kid’s laser tag party right now.’ They said, ‘Oh! Oh, take two hours.’ So generous!”
However, after talking to his wife and discussing the long commitment he had to make, he decided to say yes to the offer. Despite the tight deadline, we are glad that he agreed.
