Interview: Don Cheadle To Play Miles Davis - The Telegraph
For most jazz fans, it would be impossible to pick the key Miles Davis album, and that's no different for actor Don Cheadle. "I love Kind of Blue, but who doesn't?" the 49-year-old from Kansas says, "but then I love Circle in the Round, and the live albums such as Miles in Berlin and Miles in Tokyo. Then there are the bootleg albums. There is just so much great music from Miles."
There is a difference between most fans and the Golden Globe-winning actor, however, because Cheadle is about to fulfill his long-standing dream of bringing to the big screen a film about the trumpeter, bandleader and composer. ...He will be making his directorial debut on the film, which will be called Miles Ahead. It has been a struggle to get the film off the ground – funds are being raised using an innovative Indiegogo appeal. ..."We are raising it in a very social way and I'm sure if Miles were alive he would be championing that. He believed music was social."
