`Talk to Me' should create talk of Oscar for Cheadle

There are 1 comment on the Ohio.com story from Jul 27, 2007, titled `Talk to Me' should create talk of Oscar for Cheadle. In it, Ohio.com reports that:

Don Cheadle has another fine showcase in Talk to Me, a new movie where he channels the legendary D.C. radio personality Petey Greene.

I'd argue that the movie should generate Oscar talk about Cheadle. But just about anything Cheadle does -- with the exception of the frothy Ocean's movies -- is reason for admiration of his skill. And the motion picture academy has tended to look the other way, except for his best-actor nomination for Hotel Rwanda. (Jamie Foxx won that year, for Ray.)

Part of the problem may be that, while Cheadle has had his share of lead roles, he has not taken on the aura of a leading man. He is comfortable in ensembles (such as the Oscar-winning Crash) and as a supporting actor. And he has not been a snob about television, where he has picked up four Emmy nominations over the years.

I THINK THAT EVERYONE IN "TALK TO ME" SHOULD BE NOMINATED FOR AN OSCAR.
THAT WAS A GREAT MOVIE!
