The Miles Davis Movie: Who is going to play Cicely Tyson?

Happy Birthday, Cicely!

Cicely Tyson married Miles Davis on Nov. 26, 1981. The ceremony was conducted by Atlanta mayor Andrew Young at the home of actor Bill Cosby. Tyson and Davis divorced in 1988. I won’t say it’s a vital role, but Davis’ time with Tyson, who I think is just terrific, does coincide with his return to music after a long hiatus.

Sorcerer is one of my favorite records from the Second Quintet period. And it has one of the coolest album covers. Ever. Cicely!

  1. Umm the role of Cicely Tyson IS a very signifcant role, if ever, a biopic of Miles Davis comes to fruition. Just because they got married in the 80s doesn’t mean that is when their relationship began. Anybody who knows even a little about Miles would know they had a tumultuous on-again, off-again relationship dating back to the late 60s/early 70s and only ended with his untimely death.

  2. Oh as for the question that was asked, Kimberly Elise can play her because she is a decent actress and the resemblance is uncanny
