    Watch: Hilarious Trailer For 'Movie: The Movie' Featuring Charlize Theron, Tom Hanks, Matt Damon & Much, Much More

    Memo to the Academy: Next year, you might want to get the writing staff of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" to write jokes for the show, because this nine-minute bit is funnier than anything that happened at the Oscars last night.

    Don Cheadle In House of Lies On Showtime Free Weekend

    Showtime’s best series don’t have much room for the warm and fuzzies – that’s one thing I like about them, from The Borgias and Homeland (both returning for second seasons, The Borgias sooner and Homeland later) to dark comedies like Shameless, which begins its second se...

    Don Cheadle Gives Some Perspective On Using The Word "Gangster" Regarding President Obama

    One of the great things about Twitter is when celebrities or public figures get into hot water with their words and/or actions, it affords them the opportunity to quickly, and effectively, clean up any misunderstandings which was the case for Don Cheadle recently.

    Don Cheadle Says His Miles Davis Movie Is A "Gangster Pic" Set In 1979

    It was a year ago that we last heard about Don Cheadle’s proposed Miles Davis biopic, but despite a rival Davis biopic, it looks as if the wheels are still in motion for the ambitious actor who still seems ready to tackle the life story of the jazz legend.

    Don Cheadle & Bruce Greenwood Take 'Flight' With Robert Zemeckis & Denzel Washington

    Steven Soderbergh says something on the "Out of Sight" DVD commentary that few would disagree with: "If you can put Don Cheadle in your movie, you should put Don Cheadle in your movie." He's been true to his word, going on to cast the great actor in "Traffic" and three "Ocean's Eleven" movies, and Cheadle's livened up plenty of other projects as well, from his Oscar-nominated turn in "Hotel Rwanda" to, most recently, playing straight man to Brendan Gleeson in "The Guard." Hell, he was even brilliant as Captain Planet. Now, Robert Zemeckis has taken the tip, as Cheadle, along with another stalwart character actor, seems to have come on board t...

    Yes, The World Needs A 'Captain Planet' Movie Starring Don Cheadle & It HAS To Be Just Like This

    Last month it was announced that "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" and "Real Steel" producers Don Murphy and Susan Montford had inked a contract with Cartoon Network to develop a live action movie of the animated cartoon, "Captain Planet." Now, if you ever happened to be babysitting a four- to eight-year-old during its early '90s run, you're aware that "Captain Planet" was irony-free and/or perhaps earnest in a way that no longer exists in children's cartoons. Even in the early '90s before slacker culture had set in, "Captain Planet" was the fey, milquetoast hero of children's cartoons especially in comparison to the reference-heavy and very s...

    'The Guard' Star Don Cheadle Says Funding Announcement For Miles Davis Biopic Could Come Very Soon

    Director John Michael McDonagh Says The Film Is A Reaction Against The Works Of Mike Leigh & Ken Loach & More From The FilmmakersUsually, when a film's biggest stars decide to do press interviews together, there's a collective groan among the writers since time its sometimes even more of a challenge to interview two actors at once then individually. But pairing the two actors in "The Guard" together reveals that Brendan Gleeson and Don Cheadle's killer chemistry isn't just limited to what we see in the movie. Gleeson stars as Sergeant Gerry Boyle, a crusty, crass cop bored by life in County Galway. When murder and drugs infiltrate the small t...

    The Guard

    This movie made me smile and even laugh out loud. In fact, it gave me more pleasure than any aliens, robots or superheroes have all summer. That’s because it’s doggedly offbeat and completely original. It also provides a showcase for two fine actors, Brendan Gleeson and Don Chead...

    Watch: First Trailer For John Michael McDonagh's Crime-Comedy 'The Guard'

    For a film by the brother of "In Bruges" director Martin McDonagh starring Brendon Gleeson, Don Cheadle, Mark Strong and Liam Cunningham, there's surprisingly been pretty much no talk about crime-comedy "The Guard," which debuted to mixed-to-positive reviews at this year's Sundance Film Festival.
