MTV recently caught up with Robert Downey Jr. (not hard, dude runs like a little bitch) to ask what he thought about the replacement of Terrence Howard in Iron Man 2.

“I think the important thing with the ‘Iron Man’ franchise is to not do too much too soon and to make sure we don’t piss off the public that put us in the position we’re in,” said Downey. “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.”

Dude, f-ck the public.  Seriously, have you seen us?  Just lead and the retarded sheep will follow, as long as Cheaters isn’t on.

When asked if he had anything to do with the Howard/Cheadle switch, Downey immediately responded, “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.”  “I’ve always admired Don [Cheadle],” said Downey. “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.”

Well of course he’s not going to say anything bad about Terrence Howard.  Can you imagine the tortured poetry that guy would write if he was sad?  He’d probably get up onstage and just stand there holding a snow globe over his head.  Someone in the back would hit a triangle, and he’d stare at the audience while a single tear rolled down his cheek.
