Avery Cardoza‘s Player magazine sent us a release touting its July/August cover as Don Cheadle‘s first ever. “This’ll be my first [magazine cover] if the magazine doesn’t tank … I was going to be on the cover of another and it went under,” the Ocean’s Thirteen star told the mag.

But wait, haven’t we seen him somewhere else recently? Oh yeah, he’s been chillin’ with Obama and hangin’ with Iman.

Then again, Cheadle didn’t admit that “during Boogie Nights, I had a lot of anonymous sex with porno actors. I had to explain to my wife, ‘It’s research,’ but she finally understood,” to VF, so perhaps Player is worth a read.
