In his latest movie, Traitor, Don Cheadle plays a CIA operative who goes undercover to work with a terrorist group — but then becomes a suspected terrorist himself.

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.
