This is a picture of Miles Davis and his signature curled mullet:

And now, here’s a photo of Don Cheadle in his upcoming Davis biopic Miles Ahead:

Wow. Cheadle nails the hairdo, and the general fashion sense too. The film needs to hit $325,000 on Indiegogo to have sufficient funding to get made, with Cheadle slated to both star and direct. The image of Cheadle was surely released in hopes of sparking interest in (and funding for) the film, a passion project over a decade in the making.

Miles Ahead is slated to also feature Ewan McGregor, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Emayatzy Corinealdi, and will begin filming this week if all goes according to plan.
