The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” received a few Emmy nominations, including for special visual effects and stunt coordination. But another nomination stuck out — Don Cheadle was nominated for best guest actor in a drama, despite a low amount of screen time, according to Variety.

Don Cheadle’s cameo in ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’

Cheadle had one appearance that lasts about three minutes. It was in the first episode of “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.”

The series opens with a scene where Sam Wilson donates the Captain America shield to a museum. Soon after, Don Cheadle’s Rhodey Rhodes (who also goes by War Machine) shows up to the event.

  • The two have a short chat where Rhodes suggests Wilson should take on the Captain America mantle and use the shield — not to give it away. Wilson declines the invitation.

Cheadle had previously told the Post-Credit Podcast that he would show up on the show, but he was vague about his appearance.

  • “That’s some of the fun of the MCU, that we all get to show up in each other’s stories, and there are ways that we’re cross-platforming these characters, and they become storylines, sometimes, in the movies. And then these storylines in the movies become storylines in the shows,” he said, according to ComicBook.com.
