You may come across actor Don Cheadle in many appearances at several places: as a campaigner to end the genocide in Darfur, Sudan, as the co-author of the book ‘Not on Our Watch,’ a co-founder of the NGO ‘Not on Our Watch Project,’ a BET Humanitarian award-winning activist, or as a Golden Globe-winning actor. The Missouri born actor discovered his passion at an early age. The rigorous teaching at the California Institute of the Arts during the early ’80s made him an admirer and expert of classic theater. Cheadle managed to get into small roles in TV soon after graduation. His first recurring role was in ‘The Golden Girls (1985-92),’ and its spin-off titled ‘The Golden Palace (1992-93).’
Movies like ‘A Lesson Before Dying (1993),’ ‘Devil in a Blue Dress (1995),’ and ‘Boogie Nights (1997)’ earned Cheadle the reputation of being one of the best character actors of his generation. While ‘Hotel Rwanda’ (2004) earned him an Academy Award nomination, ‘Crash’ (2004) landed him an Academy Award for Best Picture. His MCU character James Rhodes aka War Machine helped him to establish as an A-lister with a global fanbase. In 2012 Cheadle returned to TV with the comedy ‘House of Lies.’ At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Don Cheadle movie or TV show?
