Don Cheadle Miles Davis

We learned last month that Don Cheadle is starring as Miles Davis in Miles Ahead, a crowdfunded biopic that doubles as Cheadle’s directorial debut. Above, find the first image of Cheadle in character circa 1969′s In A Silent Way, via EW, where you can also find an interview with Cheadle. The film will focus on “the musician’s transition into music after a five-year hiatus — otherwise known as his ’silent period’ — and tumultuous relationship with first wife Frances Taylor Davis.” Ewan McGregor, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Emayatzy Corinealdi will co-star in the film, which begins shooting next week in Cincinnati.

  2. I’m kind of excited for this movie. From what I’ve heard Cheadle’s been trying to get it made for a while. That picture is pretty badass, too.

  3. Looks kind of like me

  4. I’ll always give Don Cheadle a chance.I don’t much about Miles Davis’ life, so I’m looking forward this film. And yeah, I agree that picture is pretty badass!

  5. That motherfucker looks like one motherfucker

    • Don is a reasonably good actor: But he’s got obstacles up tha ass….to pull this one off.: Raspy voice, attitude, gripping tha horn, hunched over back,” fixed look(eyes),” three era walk swagger, etc:

      Dialogue script will be very little. Good luck on the tailoring eras, I followed Miles from; 1949 to death.
      I’m scared. I probably won’t see the movie. If I decide….. It will be long after reliable sources comment
      on the film.

      Don ….I feel like you are a great human being.

      ” In the spirit of my heart…..a candle burns for your success “….on this one.
