Don Cheadle


A native of Kansas City, Don Cheadle got his start in television guest starring in episodes of Fame, L.A. Law and Hill Street Blues—and his star-turning moment with his role as ‘DA John Littleton’ on Picket Fences. But it was his breakout feature film portrayal of ‘Mouse Alexander’ in Devil in a Blue Dress opposite Denzel Washington that put Cheadle on Hollywood’s radar. Through the late 1990s and into the 2000s, the Santa Monica- based actor continued his thespian dance on both the big and small screen in such projects as Boogie Nights, Traffic, Crash, A Lesson Before Dying and Hotel Rwanda, which earned him a Best Actor Academy Award nomination. The talented actor is now the star of the Showtime Original series, House of Lies.
