Actor, Don Cheadle is about to be on the big screen again. After a childhood obsession, Don is about to play jazz legend, Miles Davis, in a biopic! The film is called "Miles Ahead" and has been in development for years now but they're ready! Entertainment Weekly interviewed Don and he talked about how he co-wrote the film, how he was approached by Davis family and describes this experience and opportunity to be "surreal". EW also says the movie will begin to shoot this week in Cincinnati. This year seems to be about our black actors in biopics with Chadwick Boseman as James Brown, Zoe Saldana as Nina Simone, Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix. This is looking like a pretty good year to be a black actor!
