Academy-Award nominated actor Don Cheadle is looking for your help! The 49-year-old actor is taking matters into his own hands to fund his feature film, Miles Ahead, a film that tells the story of a few dangerous days in the life of music icon Miles Davis (played by Cheadle), as he bursts out of his silent period and conspires with a Rolling Stone writer to steal back his music.

On June 4th, Cheadle launched a crowdfunding campaign using Indiegogo, the world’s largest global crowdfunding platform. Cheadle is seeking $325,000 in additional production funds, and is hoping this type of grassroots campaign not only raises money, but excitement for the film. So far, Cheadle has raised $135,000 and counting, well on his way to a goal of $325,000.
