RADIO // Beyond the SubtitlesDon Cheadle, Traitor
Hosted by Stephen Schaefer
Originally aired 9/8/08
The Oscar-nominated Hotel Rwanda star has found another edgy role in fictional Samir Horn, a devout Muslim caught up in very gray espionage and counter-terrorism areas of the war on terror. Traitor marks screenwriter Jeffrey Nachmanoff's directorial debut and costars Guy Pearce as the FBI agent trailing Horn. Cheadle, laconic and laid back, was interviewed at Manhattan's W Union Square Hotel and talks about his choice of roles, mocks the notion that he would ever open up about the emotional costs of acting in an interview and disputes the idea that his political work on behalf of the genocide in Darfur gives him a political activist actor label.
