Terrence Howard In Talks To Play Cameron Crowe's Marvin Gaye
By TIM ADLER | Sunday, 16 May 2010 13:15 UK

EXCLUSIVE: The actor tells me he has been talking to Cameron Crowe about starring as soul singer Marvin Gaye. Crowe has been working for 3˝ years on the Sony biopic. The director has gone back to the drawing board after Will Smith turned down the role. Mowtown founder Berry Gordy Jr. is supporting the project, which has secured rights to Gaye's music. Scott Rudin is attached as producer. Howard, of course, is a singer himself. Marvin Gaye was one of the influences on his debut album Shine Through It. “Nothing’s been signed on paper yet,” Howard tells me. “Everybody who loves music will hate me if I get this one wrong.”

Whoa, first I heard of that, he actually looks like Marvin Gaye!

Terrance Howard? Not at all, but...I guess they want a big name so it'll make money, and that's something Jesse L. Martin isn't.  :-\

I thought the rumour a few years ago was that Martin left Law and Order to do more theatre, and make a break for the big screen... this MG biopic was one the main buzz behind him leaving the show, though...

He would be perfect, he did Rent, he is musical and he even looks like him...and is Terrance Howard THAT big a draw?
