You Won't Recognize Don Cheadle As Miles Davis From An Upcoming Biopic

Yes, that's Don Cheadle.

Don Cheadle's dream to bring the story of famed jazz trumpeter Miles Davis to the big screen is finally becoming a reality.

The "Iron Man 3" actor is making his directorial debut with "Miles Ahead," an independently funded biopic about Davis' return to music after a five year hiatus. The film just began filming, and EW posted the first picture of Cheadle in costume.

The project still requires some additional funding, so Cheadle has started an Indiegogo campaign for fill the gap.
