Don Cheadle is saving the planet - one tree at a time. Or should we say, one human tree at a time?

Cheadle, who isn't cast yet, but still might appear in next summer's sure-to-be blockbuster superhero film The Avengers (because of an option in his Iron Man 2 contract), was honored this past July by the Friars Club in New York for his performance alongside Brendan Gleeson in The Guard. The two were honored with a 'Best New Buddy Comedy Duo' Award at the event for their performances in the film, about an Irish cop who reluctantly teams with an uptight FBI agent to take down an international ...

Cowboys & Aliens

Proving that they have a sense of humor, the folks at LA Film Fest 2011 programmed the very smart, sharp and sassy new Sony Pictures Classics flick "The Guard" starring Brendan Gleeson and Don Cheadle in their Summer Showcase and a fun time was indeed had by all.
