Michael Clarke Duncan as the Kingpin tends to get less of this grousing because, as the filmmakers said at the time, no one else had the physical chops to play that role and could act at a level above "pro wrestler yelling a little more quietly than usual."
Heimdall's a bit different, IMHO, as the character's relative unimportance in the plot -- he's not the main villain or hero, unlike the Kingpin -- takes a lot of the weight off of his casting. And in any case, with the armor and all, there are quite a few actors who could carry the part well enough for the rest of the movie to work.
As I agreed with mjyoung below, my bigger beef here is that this is a waste of Elba's talent.
