apparently he was cast first and he got paid more than RDJ, Gwyneth or Jeff, so that was part of why he was dumped. the other was that Fav wasn't happy with his part, which is why he had several scenes cut and/or reshot to minimise his role.

although they really should've left in his scene at Bagram with the general...
That reminds me of the time Tyrese Gibson was paid $8,000,000 for his appearance in Transformers which was more than what the film's star Shia LaBeouf received which was only $500,000.

When I saw those figures, my reaction was: "$8,000,000 for saying 'Left cheek! Left cheek! Left cheek!'"
He peobably has a bigger role in Transformers 2, when is the trailer coming out?
This reminds me of the time Chris Tucker received $5 million more than Jackie Chan for each of the Rush Hour sequels, and of course Terence Howard who received more money than each of the main cast (Robert Downey Jr., Jeff Bridges, Gwyneth Paltrow) for Iron Man.
