Night Cap: Don Cheadle on ‘Fallon’

Before Don Cheadle became a huge movie star, he was lighting up the theater stage and band room of his high school. He reminisced all about his teenage days on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. 

The late night host whipped out a few yearbook pictures of the Miles Ahead actor, who revealed that he had a choice between attending drama school or music school.

“I knew I wasn’t going to [have] the discipline it would take to do what these guys over here did,” the 51-year-old said while pointing to The Roots. “I was also in Colorado and a lot of winters. And I think I made a weather choice, and said, ‘I’m going to go to L.A. and go to Cal Arts.’ That’s where I ended up going.”

We’re glad he made that decision. Watch him take a trip down memory lane and play a few rounds of Catchphrase below.
