Don Cheadle’s illustrious acting career started in the 1980’s with a number of television parts, which then paved the way for movie castings in the years that followed. Cheadle rose swiftly in the acting world and won the Los Angeles Film Critics’ Best Supporting Actor award for his amazing work with Denzel Washington in DEVIL IN A BLUE DRESS. Since that time, Cheadle’s career has expanded in thematic diversity and critical praise, as several of his performances during the 2000s have been nominated for Oscars. Cheadle’s performances in a number of critically acclaimed movies and his portrayal of James “Rhodey” Rhodes (also known as War Machine) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies have made him a household name. However, no matter how little or significant the role, Cheadle always gives outstanding performances and has developed into one of Hollywood’s most versatile actors.

O Cinema’s monthly series, SEASONED ACTORS, celebrates the work of an actor that has greatly contributed to the cinematic culture of our lifetimes. And for our 4th (and final) season this year, we’re honoring the work of the multi-talented DON CHEADLE!

Sergeant Gerry Boyle is an eccentric small-town cop with a confrontational and crass personality and a subversive sense of humor. A longtime policeman in County Galway, Boyle is a maverick with his own moral code. He has seen enough of the world to know there isn’t much to it and has had plenty of time to think about it. When a fellow police officer disappears and Boyle’s small town becomes key to a large drug trafficking investigation, he is forced to at least feign interest when dealing with the humorless FBI agent Wendell Everett assigned to the case. Left to run his territory to his liking for many years, he is not at all impressed when the FBI comes to town.

“In this offbeat buddy-cop comedy, Don Cheadle, as an FBI agent trying to stop a drug ring, makes the perfect foil.”
– ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

“Hip, lurid and improbably lovable, The Guard is easily the best guy-love comedy of the summer, with Cheadle and Gleeson’s riffs and repartee tumbling back and forth as if they’ve been trading lies over Guinness forever.”
– WASHINGTON POST

“Among the most purely entertaining films of the year, which cuts its laughter with a dose of Celtic melancholy. It still delivers cop/action requirements – shoot-outs, revenges, daring deeds – and chances are, we’ll be quoting lines from this forever.”
