Don Cheadle: George Clooney pranked me

Well-known prankster George Clooney has apparently struck again, this time, on his "Ocean's Eleven" co-star Don Cheadle.

Cheadle, who has hopes of producing and starring in a movie about jazz legend Miles Davis, received a letter claiming to be from the desk of Brad Pitt.

"It was a note that Brad was going to be producing the Miles Davis movie and Jamie Foxx was going to be starring in the movie," Cheadle said on "CBS This Morning. "Was I interested in playing Charlie Parker in the film?"

"It smelled a little Clooney," Cheadle said. "It was."

Cheadle currently stars in Showtime's "House of Lies," playing a fast-talking, morally-bankrupt management consultant who goes into companies and tells them how to fix and streamline their business.

You can catch "House of Lies" Sunday nights at 10/9c on Showtime.
