He sure looks the part.
Don Cheadle won the role of Miles Davis before he even knew he was being considered. In 2006, when Davis was posthumously being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Davis’s nephew, Vince Wilburn, told reporters that Cheadle was the guy to play the jazz genius. ”I had not been reaching out for this role in any way, shape or form,” says Cheadle. “There was a pronouncement made, I guess — a proclamation — that I was going to play his uncle in a movie.”
By the looks of this trailer, Wilburn seems to have been very wise in his casting choice.
Cheadle also co-wrote and directed MILES AHEAD, which is set to be released in April. The film’s cast includes Ewan McGregor, Keith Stanfield, and Michael Stuhlbarg.
Guaranteed nomination next year perhaps ?? I bet so.
