Don Cheadle As Miles Davis


Don Cheadle just unveiled his first look as Miles Davis for the upcoming crowd-funded biopic he’s doing about the musician’s life. Cheadle shared the photo exclusively with Entertainment Weekly and gave an interview about the project. This is Miles in the late ’60’s as he was entering into his jazz rock fusion phase with the help of his much younger wife Betty Mabry. Cheadle explains that the film is not a traditional biopic but instead a reworking of two time periods in Davis’s life. They start shooting the film in Cincinnati this week.
