    Oscar-nominated actor Don Cheadle, who always has really watery eyes on screen, has overseen a film script that chronicles the life of jazz legend Miles Davis. Cheadle hopes to play Davis in the film. Herbie Hancock has signed on to do the film's score.

    Is Don Cheadle the ideal choice to play Davis? Is he on his way to an Oscar a la Jamie Foxx, who played Ray Charles?
