Early in his career, Cheadle gave memorable performances as a charming but trigger-happy killer named Mouse in Devil In A Blue Dress, and as a country- music-loving porn actor in Boogie Nights. Cheadle's other films include Crash, Traffic and Hotel Rwanda, for which he earned an Academy Award nomination for best actor.
