McKellen Cheadle

On this week's Empire Podcast, we leave the grey, cold confines of the pod booth and take the pod directly to the home of the legendary Sir Ian McKellen. Knight of the realm, white wizard, mutant supreme, and proud Shakespearean ambassador, the veteran actor regaled us with tales while we sipped tea and ate biscuits.

Also this week: we chatted to the multi-talented Oscar nominee Don Cheadle about Miles Ahead, a film he wrote, directed, produced, acted in and most likely moonlighted as the Best Boy, too. We speak to him about getting under the skin of the jazz legend, his work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the possibility of a Miles Davis Cinematic Universe.
