Lenny Kravitz To Play Marvin Gaye

Originally posted on The Urban Daily:

For several years now there’s been a number of attempts to bring the life, or at least parts of it, of legendary soul crooner Marvin Gaye to theaters. Cameron Crowe and F. Gary Gray were attached to helm such projects, as were potential stars Will Smith and Terrence Howard, though ultimately all those stories fizzled. Now there’s another with Lenny Kravitz said to be playing the life of Gaye in a film directed by Julien Temple.

More via the San Francisco Chronicle:

Rocker-turned-actor Lenny Kravitz has reportedly been tapped to portray Marvin Gaye in filmmaker Julien Temple’s forthcoming biopic.

The controversial British director stepped in to revive the project last year after both Cameron Crowe and F. Gary Gray abandoned plans to bring the soul legend’s life story to the big screen, and now Kravitz has been cast as the music icon, according to London newspaper The Evening Standard.
