Is Don Cheadle in Falcon and the Winter Soldier?

Cheadle reprises his Marvel Cinematic Universe character James Rhodes in “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” for two scenes, one of which does not even include any dialogue. IndieWireDon Cheadle Confused by Emmy Nom for ‘Falcon and Winter Soldier’ Cameo: ‘I Don’t Really Get It’

Don Cheadle, who made a brief cameo appearance as Colonel James Rupert “Rhodey” Rhodes (aka War Machine) in Marvel’s Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, secured a nomination for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series, much to his and several fans’ surprise. Per Complex, many online were questioning and confused as to whether or not the Avengers’ star’s 98-second appearance was worth a nom, especially considering how a big chunk of the series premise revolved around former super-soldier Isaiah Bradley, brilliantly portrayed by Carl Lumbly.

As for Don? He felt the exact same way. Well, kind of.

‘Thanks, well wishers. sorry, haters,” Cheadle tweeted in part after hearing the news. “ I don’t really get it either. buuuuuuuuuut on we go…”

Seeing as how he’s been nominated 11 times over the course of his career, maybe this nomination will finally help Cheadle secure that coveted win, despite the confusing circumstances surrounding it. But even if he doesn’t clench the “W,” he’s still got plenty to celebrate!

According to People, the 56-year-old actor recently tied the knot with longtime partner Brigid Coulter after 28 years. Cheadle first revealed the news to guest host Wanda Sykes on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in late June. Over the weekend during the premiere of his new film Space Jam: A New Legacy, the Black Monday star explained the reasoning behind finally getting hitched after all this time, jokingly telling Entertainment Tonight:

“Our accountant proposed to both of us and he showed us the numbers, and we said, yeah, we should probably do it. It came up a lot of times, but every time, we were like, ‘But we’re already together?’ [The accountant said], ‘Yeah, but this is a better reason to be together.’ Really, it’s because our accountant proposed to us. I wish there were some big sweet romantic story, but the romance happened, you know, the first year.”

Coulter added, “You’ve got to make sure. I wasn’t sure. Now, I think I’m almost sure.”

In response, Cheadle tweeted: "I don't really get it either." This isn't the actor's way of being humble or falsely modest--Cheadle only speaks in one of the two quick scenes where he reprises his Marvel Cinematic Universe character James Rhodes. In the other scene, he's merely listening to Anthony Mackie's Sam Wilson give a speech about donating Captain America's shield to a museum. Cheadle's was the only acting nomination for the show.

thanks, well wishers. sorry, haters. agreed, 🤷🏿‍♂️ers. i don't really get it either. buuuuuuuuuut on we go ...

The 73rd annual Emmy awards are set to air live on September 19 at 8 PM ET on CBS and Paramount Plus. Marvel has a strong showing at this year's Emmys, with WandaVision being a particular standout, earning nominations for Best Limited Series, Best Actress in a Limited Series (Elizabeth Olsen), Best Actor in a Limited Series (Paul Bettany), and Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series (Kathryn Hahn).

Cheadle also stars in Space Jam: A New Legacy, which debuts on July 16 in theaters and on HBO Max. The actor also recently let it slip that Michael Jordan will--despite many rumors to the contrary--be in the movie, "but not in the way you'd expect."

Don Cheadle confused by Emmy nomination for 'Falcon and Winter Soldier'

NME 14 July, 2021 - 05:19am

Don Cheadle has reacted to his Emmy nomination for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier by saying that he doesn’t “really get it either”.

The actor received a nod for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for reprising his MCU character James Rhodes for two scenes in the Disney+ series.

Cheadle’s nomination marks the only recognition for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier at the Emmys, with lead actors Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie both being snubbed.

“Thanks, well wishers. Sorry, haters,” Cheadle wrote on his Twitter account, responding to his nomination.

“I don’t really get it either. Buuuuuuuuuut on we go…”

thanks, well wishers. sorry, haters. agreed, 🤷🏿‍♂️ers. i don't really get it either. buuuuuuuuuut on we go …

— Don" 't ask me google questions" Cheadle (@DonCheadle) July 13, 2021

Cheadle was nominated alongside Courtney B. Vance, Charles Dance, Carl Weathers and Timothy Olyphant in the Guest Actor in a Drama Series category. The winner will be announced on September 19.

This year’s Emmy nominations were announced yesterday (July 13). Take a look at the full list here.

In other Falcon and the Winter Soldier news, Anthony Mackie recently hit out at rumours about a relationship between his character Sam and Stan’s character Bucky.

“So many things are twisted and convoluted,” he said in a recent interview. “There’s so many things that people latch on to with their own devices to make themselves relevant and rational.”

He continued: “The idea of two guys being friends and loving each other in 2021 is a problem because of the exploitation of homosexuality.

“It used to be guys can be friends, we can hang out, and it was cool. You would always meet your friends at the bar, you know. You can’t do that anymore, because something as pure and beautiful as homosexuality has been exploited by people who are trying to rationalise themselves.”

2021 Emmy nominations: The biggest snubs and surprises

With every year’s Emmy nominations announcement comes question marks and raised eyebrows as some nominations are deemed unexpected.

Titles like "Ted Lasso," "WandaVision" and "The Crown" dominated their respective categories this year, leaving little space for competition that many thought would surely squeak their way into this year’s honorees.

On the other hand, there are a handful of nods that shocked some, be it because of vocal dislike for a show or simply because it flew completely under the radar.

With "The Crown" and "The Mandalorian" leading this year’s nominations, here’s a look at the biggest snubs and surprises of the 2021 Emmys:

"The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" was incredibly popular and received critical acclaim but couldn't manage to snag any major nominations. 

Stars Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan were considered strong contenders, but both were shut out in favor of Don Cheadle’s brief guest spot.

Peacock’s "Girls5eva" had a strong but small fan base for the musical comedy and Renée Elise Goldsberry (nominated for "Hamilton") was all but expected to earn a nom for the show, which was shut out save for a writing nom for creator Meredith Scardino.

Ted Danson is a critical darling, having earned a jaw-dropping 18 Emmy nominations over the course of his career, winning two. His latest comedy, "Mr. Mayor," was expected to help him land yet another nod, but he was left off the roster this year.

Nicole Kidman has become a favorite in the television industry thanks to her turn in "Big Little Lies," but her leading role in HBO's "The Undoing" was completely locked out by the Academy. The only nomination that the show earned was a nod for star Hugh Grant, despite Kidman, Donald Sutherland and the limited series as a whole earning Golden Globe noms.

"Small Axe," a series of anthology TV movies, brought a lot of awards love to star John Boyega and after he won a Golden Globe for his work, he was expected to be honored by the Emmys as well, but the series was shut out.

Despite being largely panned by critics, "Emily in Paris" earned some love from the Golden Globes with a pair of nominations, and it was widely considered a fluke – be it because of limited content thanks to the pandemic, controversy within the Hollywood Foreign Press Association or something else entirely. However, a nomination for outstanding comedy series – one of the year’s most prestigious awards – proves that its awards love was no accident.

"Cobra Kai" is another show that, despite its large and vocal audience, isn’t known for receiving the best reviews, so a nod for outstanding comedy series certainly came as a surprise.

It’s no secret that "Hamilton" has been immensely popular in various forms since it debuted on Broadway but earning a whopping nine nominations was not expected. Not only did it land a pair of nominations in technical categories, but seven of those nods went to stars Goldsberry, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Leslie Odom Jr., Phillipa Soo, Daveed Diggs, Jonathan Groff and Anthony Ramos.

"The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" was expected to earn more nominations than it did, and what certainly wasn’t expected was Cheadle’s nomination as a guest star in the show, making him one of Marvel’s inaugural class of actors to have been nominated for major awards for their performance, alongside Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany and Kathryn Hahn.

Maya Rudolph made waves last year when she won two Emmys for playing Vice President Kamala Harris on "Saturday Night Live" and Connie the Hormone Monstress in "Big Mouth," and she has a chance to do it again this year, earning nominations for the same shows yet again.

Quibi is still in the game, earning eight nominations for its second season with the Television Academy. Actors Kevin Hart, John Travolta, John Lutz, J.B. Smoove, Nathalie Emmanuel, Paula Pell and Kerri Kenney-Silver each earned nominations in the short form acting categories, while the "Reno 911!" reboot was recognized in the outstanding short form comedy, drama or variety series category.

Twitter erupted with excited reactions to Cheadle's 11th Emmy nomination including one who wrote: 'Don Cheadle was in tfatws for like a minute and he got nominated for an emmy. king things.' 

Another said: 'don cheadle being the only actor nominated for tfatws with two seconds of screentime is a power move.' 

He starred in the scene opposite leading man Anthony Mackie who plays Sam Wilson AKA Falcon AKA Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but did not receive a nomination.

As Sebastian Stan stars as Bucky Barnes AKA Winter Soldier also didn't receive a nod either despite a leading role, some were quick to point out how the two stars of the show were left with nothing.

A Twitter user wrote: 'Don Cheadle getting an Emmy nom for Falcon and the Winter Soldier while Mackie and Sebastian got nothing has me screaming.' 

Carl Lumbly, 69, starred as African-American Korean War veteran and super soldier imprisoned for 30 years, Isiah Bradley, over a few episodes and many fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe series were not pleased that his riveting performance was overlooked.

Miscellaneous: Marvel Cinematic Universe fans had plenty to say about the nomination

One user wrote: 'I love Don Cheadle, but if anyone deserved the guest actor nom for #TheFalconandtheWinterSoldier it was Carl Lumbly. Period.'   

Another said: 'Carl Lumbly was snubbed for Falcon and the Winter Soldier it was truly one of the best performances of the year [flower emoji]' 

Cheadle has starred as Rhodes/War Machine since 2010's Iron Man 2 and reprised the role over 7 films in the MCU before his short stint on Falcon And The Winter Soldier.

Perhaps his less than two minute appearance could be his first win at the event as he has been nominated ten times previously including for his work on ER, House Of Lies, and most recently Black Monday.

Don Cheadle Reacts To Emmy Nomination For 98-Second ‘Falcon & The Winter Soldier’ Appearance

Yahoo Entertainment 13 July, 2021 - 03:16pm

He got it Tuesday with an unexpected Emmy nomination for his 98-second cameo in the premiere episode of Marvel’s Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

Cheadle was as surprised as anyone, tweeting, “thanks, well wishers. sorry, haters. agreed, 🤷🏿‍♂️ers. i don’t really get it either. buuuuuuuuuut on we go…”

The actor’s appearance on the show’s premiere episode created added continuity for fans of the Marvel movies. The actor first appeared as Colonel James Rupert “Rhodey” Rhodes — and his alter ego War Machine — in 2010’s Iron Man 2. He has been a steadying presence for fans — and Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark — through seven films.

In his 98 seconds on Falcon, Cheadle’s Rhodey Rhodes has a pivotal conversation with Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson about becoming Captain America. It’s a quiet moment as far as superhero scripts go, but it’s freighted with all the history and baggage the characters have from the Avengers films. There’s also the undercurrent of the significance of a Black man taking up Captain America’s iconic shield.

As Rhodey says to Sam in parting as they look at the shield and the star-spangled costume: “A new day, brother.”

A lot of people were baffled when Don Cheadle scored an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama for his extremely brief appearance in Marvel’s “Falcon and the Winter Soldier” — including Don Cheadle. Cheadle was nominated for a scene in the Disney+ show’s first episode, in which Colonel James “Rhodey” Rhodes (Cheadle) tries to convince Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) to keep Captain America’s shield instead of handing it over to the Smithsonian. It’s crucial in setting up Sam’s person

Don Cheadle on His Falcon and Winter Soldier Emmy Nomination: I Don't Get It Either - IGN

IGN 13 July, 2021 - 02:52pm

When people think of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, there's plenty that probably comes to mind. However, it's hard to imagine Don Cheadle is what people think of first — not because he wasn't great in the show, but because he's only in the series for a couple of minutes.

Despite only being on screen for less than two minutes, Cheadle picked up an Emmy nomination for the role and he's quite confused by it.

thanks, well wishers. sorry, haters. agreed, 🤷🏿‍♂️ers. i don't really get it either. buuuuuuuuuut on we go ...

As you can see in the actor's tweet above, Cheadle doesn't really understand why his short cameo in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier as MCU mainstay James "Rhodey" Rhodes earned him a nomination. TVLine says his cameo in the show lasted just 95 seconds and it was apparently enough to be nominated for the Guest Actor in a Drama Series Emmy.

Have you watched Marvel's The Falcon and The Winter Soldier?

In those less than two minutes of the Disney Plus MCU series, Cheadle's Rhodey character speaks to show star Anthony Mackie (who plays Sam Wilson in the MCU) about Sam's decision regarding a certain shield that belonged to a certain patriotic hero.

Cheadle, who's been nominated for an Emmy 11 times according to Entertainment Weekly, is up against Courtney B. Vance in Lovecraft Country, Charles Dance in The Crown, Timothy Olyphant in The Mandalorian, and Carl Weathers in The Mandalorian.

Elsewhere in the Disney catalogue, Marvel's WandaVision grabbed 23 nominations and Disney's Mandalorian show received 24. The remaining nominations across Disney Plus' 71 come from various shows found on the streaming service. The 73rd Emmy Awards will be hosted by Cedric the Entertainer and it will air on Sunday, September 19, 2021 on CBS and on Paramount+.

While waiting to see if Cheadle's Emmy nomination becomes a win, check out our thoughts on the series that nabbed him that nomination in IGN's The Falcon and The Winter Soldier review. Read this story about the Armor Wars series coming to Disney Plus centered on Cheadle's War Machine character after that.
