Marvel Studios announced on Tuesday that Academy Award nominee Terrence Howard has joined the cast of Iron Man and will play Jim "Rhodey" Rhodes.

Iron Man, directed by Jon Favreau and starring Robert Downey Jr. as the armored hero, is targeted for a February production start and a May 2, 2008 release.

Here's how Marvel describes the role:

In the film, Rhodey is as accomplished military pilot and Tony Stark's confidant and associate.

"When we first began to think about Iron Man, we always envisioned Terrence as Rhodey," said Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige. "The richness of the role and complexity of the character seemed to mesh perfectly with the type of passion, energy and emotion that Howard brings to all of his projects.

"Now with Terrence on board to co-star alongside Robert, we cannot be more excited about the great chemistry they will bring to Iron Man."

Howard, 37, received as Academy Award nomination for Hustle & Flow and also appeared in the Oscar-winning Crash in 2005. He recently completed production on The Brave One with Jodie Foster, and is currently in production on Spring Break In Bosnia with Richard Gere. Other recent film credits also include Idlewild, Get Rich or Die Tryin' and Four Brothers.

Marvel Studios is currently casting other supporting roles for Iron Man.

NBC has released a description for the "Collision" episode of Heroes, set to air on Monday, Oct. 16.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) finally tracks down one of his father's fabled genetically advanced 'supermen.' In Las Vegas, Hiro's (Masi Oka) plan backfires when he cautiously turns time to his advantage at the gambling tables. Niki's (Ali Larter) mafia debtors use their leverage to their benefit in a more elaborate scheme, while Nathan (Adrian Pasdar) pays a personal visit to a wealthy Vegas contributor to raise additional campaign funds.

"Following a tragic turn at a bonfire, Claire's (Hayden Panettiere) uncanny healing abilities are put to the ultimate test, but according to Issac's (Santiago Cabrera) paintings, her future could be fraught with even more peril. Meanwhile, Matt's (Greg Grunberg) abilities are gauged by a pair of men who seem to know a great deal about people with special gifts."

In other Heroes news, the Oct. 2 episode drew in 9.9 million viewers, according to numbers released by NBC.

Heroes emerged as the No. 1 new series on television in adults 18-49 and other key adult demos.


The third-season premiere of Battlestar Galactica drew 2.2 million viewers, according to numbers released by Sci Fi Channel.

The two-hour opener on Friday was the No. 1 cable series of the night, with a 1.8 household rating.

In other Battlestar Galactica news, Dynamite Entertainment announced that Javier Grillo-Marxuach will be writing a Classic Battlestar Galactica mini-series scheduled for early next year.

"With this special miniseries, I truly hope to do justice to the unique character of the Classic Galactica: a show that balanced the urgency of its premise with a larger-than-life sense of adventure and a healthy dose of humor," Grillo-Marxuach said.

"I also can't overstate how wonderful it is to have the opportunity to revisit the Classic Battlestar in the comics medium. As spectacular as the original series was on the TV screen, nothing can compete with comics in delivering breathtaking vistas, massive space battles and bizarre new worlds... not to mention the true scope of the Cylon menace."
