Don Cheadle as Miles Davis: Five Music Biopic Stars Who Hit the Right Casting Note

Don Cheadle as Miles Davis: Five Music Biopic Stars Who Hit the Right Casting Note

Originally posted 11/21/2013 01:00PM

Not only did Argo's Affleck get dissed, even though he had one of the best-reviewed films of the year, but so did Zero Dark Thirty's Kathryn Bigelow, a previous Best Director winner for The Hurt Locker – which I'd argue isn't nearly the accomplishment that Zero Dark Thirty is. Both of the films about terror made the cut for Best Picture, however. But then, that was expected.

Gotham City is about to get a French accent. Already set to star Anne Hathaway as Catwoman and Christian Bale returning as the Caped Crusader, the latest Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, is also welcoming a formidable femme fatale: 2008 Oscar winner Marion Cotillard.
