The A-List: ‘Miles Ahead’ director and lead actor Don Cheadle

he multi-faceted Don Cheadle has starred in some 80 movies, both big (Avengers: Age of Ultron, theOcean’s and Iron Manfranchises) and small (Hotel Rwanda), and produced various TV shows and films. Now he can add director to his resume, thanks to his passion project and labor of love, Miles Ahead, a wild —  and wildly entertaining — free-form biopic of jazz legend Miles Davis. Cheadle not only co-wrote, produced and directed the film, he also stars as the raspy-voiced pioneering musician whose improvisational approach and ambitious forays into rock-jazz fusion helped define modern jazz.
