    I like Terrance Howard, however, I think his complection is a little too fair for the part, I think the better choice would be the actor who stared on Law & order before quiting to appear in Rent.

    I think Terrance is a fine actor, how ever, I think the actor who starred on Law & Order would be a better choice, he even sounds like him and has many of his mannerisms.

    I love Terrence Howard as an actor so he certainly has the talent to do it. Marvin is such a beloved icon that I understand the concern Terrence has about getting it right, but I believe Cameron also has the directing talent to pull it off and if Berry participates (as the consultant I hope he’ll be), they should have a winner! The script and editing will also be key to a sucessful film. I hope it happens.
