Don Cheadle Cast As Miles Davis
We’ve always valued Don Cheadle’s ability to command a movie from whichever role he is playing and highly anticipate how his talent will translate into the directors chair. Cheadle’s film “Kill the Trumpet Player,” chronicling the jazz life of trumpeter Miles Davis, was given the green light starring Cheadle himself. Zoe Saldana will play Davis’s ex-wife, Frances.
Cheadle Tweeted about the role, refusing to call the movie a “biopic,” see why:
Miles Davis flick is on. But I hate the word biopic like Miles hated the word jazz. It's misleading. Not attempting to tell his life story.—
