Verb, "to cheadle" or "to be cheadled." For a film actor or actress to be recast in a sequel for reasons other than necessity (like death or age). Particularly a sequel in keeping with the canon of the first film(s), thus excluding franchise reboots. The "cheadling" can apply to both the actor being replaced, as well as the audience for the dissonance caused while watching. Named for Don Cheadle replacing Terrence Howard as James Rhodes in Iron Man 2. Can also be used more colloquially to reference anyone being bizarrely replaced in any walk of life.
1. Edward Norton was cheadled out of The Avengers.
2. Maggie Gyllenhaal in The Dark Knight? Why, we have experienced a harsh cheadling indeed!
