Lenny Kravitz no Longer Starring in Marvin Gaye Biopic
The status of the Marvin Gaye Biopic Sexual Healing has been quite unclear. After Lenny Kravitz was casted in November to play the leading role, Gaye’s son Marvin Gaye III objected.
He said ‘The producers and directors of this film are very wrong and shameful… [They’re] trying to do a film about a low period in his life. They don’t even know the whole story”
The role is now replaced by Jesse L. Martin who was originally casted until the project had a change of producers. Martin appears on Law and Order and has a musical background as one of the original members of Broadway show Rent.
