I stumbled upon this wonderful video today and thought I would share:
Over the course of 30 minutes, Cheadle and Washington talk to Variety about their respective careers (at one point, they chuckle when describing what they do as a ‘career’), along with the opportunities and challenges they have encountered and lastly, how they have turned the exposure their success brings to shine a light on issues they are passionate about (for better or worse).
It is an engaging exchange and reminded me, among other things, that they are former co-stars, in 2003’s The United States of Leland. I remember seeing this film around the time of its release but it is a little too far in my cinematic rearview for me to give an adequate review/recap. Check out the trailer here:
Have you seen the film? If so, what did you think about it?
Cool. A couple of my favorite actors. Thanks for the heads up, Iba.

Interesting insight about a bunch of stuff, particularly why it’s so much tougher to break into acting now. I never saw LELAND but I did very much enjoy THE GUARD, which Cheadle starred in and produced…he is a really good interviewee http://youtu.be/VhGQBwUAWnk

He definitely it. I saw The Guard too and LOVED it. I did a write up about it at the end of 2011. Totally overlooked film.
