U.S. actor Don Cheadle is perhaps best known as Robert Downey Jr.'s sidekick in the "Iron Man" films. Now, he is using his celebrity muscle to make a movie about jazz icon Miles Davis.U.K. actor Ewan McGregor is also adding his star power to the long-gestating project, in which Cheadle will star as the trumpet player behind "Kind of Blue," perhaps the 20th century's best-known jazz record.The film has a budget of up to $10 million and Cheadle has turned to Indiegogo to help raise funds.The actor – who has been learning the trumpet to prepare for the role – says Davis would have approved of crowdfunding, as he rejected the description of his music as jazz, preferring "social music" instead.
