• The Oscar nominee, 43, gets involved with a terrorist cell in Traitor. But what really lights his fuse? Doing homework with his two daughters and poking fun at his famous costars.

HOMEWORK IS WHERE THE HEART IS
Don't act like you know something when you don't. The best thing is when both of you struggle to figure it out together. That's the most fun part.

IF HE WASN'T ACTING, IT WOULD BE A CRIME
I would be robbing people, which would really stink because everybody would be like, "Hey, Don Cheadle just robbed me! He was wearing his costume from Ocean's Eleven!"

HE'S DONE WITH DANNY OCEAN
I think it is a wrap on the Ocean's movies, although I hear that Brad [Pitt] may do an Ocean's movie with just his family.

BUT HE LOVES HIS OCEAN'S COSTARS
People ask me, "So do you guys really sit around talking about Darfur?" Yeah, we actually do. What do you think we talk about? How many cars we have?

AND HE WANTS TO ADOPT ... BRAD'S KIDS!
There will be enough of them pretty soon. I'm calling two through four!
