Volcano 1997 is just an average disaster movie, while Rosewood of the same year is a dramatic historical re-enactment of an episode with a racial background, directed by the engaged John Singleton.

Immediately after, he joins the entourage of George Clooney participating inOut of Sight (1998) of Steven Soderbergh, a director who will help him a lot.

A real stroke of luck has allowed him in recent years to rise to the forefront of blockbusters, when Terrence Howard he abandoned the War Machine role he had held in the first Iron Man, being replaced by Cheadle in Iron Man 2 (2010), Iron Man 3 (2013) and Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015).
