Don Cheadle is set to star in and direct the long-awaited biopic of legendary jazz trumpeter Miles Davis, Kill the Trumpet Player. We're thrilled about this casting choice. Cheadle is an amazing actor and will likely bring just the right note of smoky intensity to the role. Not to mention he really – almost shockingly – looks like Miles Davis.
Though not the first time Hollywood's nailed the casting of a legend, it's still fairly rare for industry insiders and fans to agree. Here are four more biopic stars we thought were eerily appropriate lead choices.

Look out, Carol Burnett! Cameron Diaz is piling on the sass to portray the famously hardhearted Miss Hannigan in the movie remake of Annie.
The actress, 41, Tweeted a photo of herself in costume – big hoop earrings, a heap of thick chain necklaces (one of them spells out "HBomb"), dark makeup and even darker roots.
"I want you to meet someone," Diaz writes in the caption. "Her name is Ms. Hannigan. She ain't nice and she ain't pretty. #Annie"

Despite various reports circulating on Tuesday, Jamie Foxx insists he and Katie Holmes are not an item.
"[The rumors] are 100 percent not true," Foxx, 45, tells Entertainment Tonight. "In fact, it's quite hilarious because we simply danced at a charity event along with a lot of other people."
At the event in August – Apollo in the Hamptons: A Night of Legends – Holmes, 34, got down on the dance floor and even sipped from Foxx's cocktail.

The key to throwing summer's hottest dance party? Just invite Katie Holmes.
The Mania Days actress was in attendance at Saturday's Apollo in the Hamptons: A Night of Legends event, held at Apollo Theater board member Ron Perelman's East Hampton estate. The line-up of stars out to support the iconic theater included the Roots and Lenny Kravitz, with surprise performances by Darlene Love, Jon Bon Jovi, Ciara, and Pharrell.
Seated at a long table in center of Perelman's party barn alongside prosecutor pal Leigh Bishop, Jamie Foxx, Ellen DeGeneres and Penny Marshall, Holmes, 34, started getting into the groove slowly, swaying to Darlene Love's powerful rendition of "Lean on Me."

The years may have passed, but the talent remains for Oscar nominees who have been there, done that and continue to look good doing it.
Denzel Washington, Robert De Niro, Helen Hunt, Sally Field, Alan Arkin and Tommy Lee Jones aren't strangers to the Academy Awards – all have taken home Hollywood's ultimate prize. This year, they all took that familiar red carpet walk again – with flair, grace and style.

What a difference eight years makes!
Jamie Foxx brought his daughter Corinne back to the Oscars on Sunday night – eight years after she appeared on the red carpet as a fresh-faced 11-year-old in 2005.
"Someone was asking me about being nervous about the Oscars. I said, 'I'm not nervous anymore. I'm just excited to show how beautiful my daughter has turned out,' " Foxx said Sunday on the red carpet.
The Django Unchained actor, 45, said he had been talking Corinne, now 19, about college and relationships on their way over to the ceremony on Sunday. "Just catching up," he said. "Talking about love."

I'll be honest, I've been nervous about Django Unchained for months. On the one hand, I feared that Quentin Tarantino's foray in the antebellum south would give him license to indulge his n-word fetish. (The man thinks he has a ghetto pass, and is clearly unwilling to accept that they don't exist.)
Or, I thought, Django could be an Inglourious Basterds for black people, the feel-good slave-revenge movie of the year. It turns out I was right on both counts – except maybe that "feel good" business.
