Favorite Quotes from Don Cheadle

Why does Don Cheadle have a net worth of $35 Million? Maybe these quotes can shine some light on the situation:

I hate it when, by page 30, I know what the lead’s going to do and then what the bad guy’s gonna do. Mostly it’s just scripts by the numbers where nothing’s surprising, nothing’s interesting.

But most scripts are terrible. Most projects are bad, that’s just kind of the way it is. And I’m not really attracted to those.

The process changes slightly from role to role. Obviously, there are different things you’re called on to do. You’re not digging deep for Basher Tarr like I was for Paul Rusesabagina, but at the end of the day it’s still all make-believe and you still are trying as realistically as you can to depict these characters.

But I think it’s intoxicating when somebody is so unapologetically who they are.

Don CheadleDon Cheadle

For me, it’s always just been about finding material that I think is creative and interesting and fun and something that can expand me and that I can hopefully do something with.
