Actor Terence Howard recently revealed that he’s been in talks with director Cameron Crowe to star in Crowe’s upcoming Marvin Gaye biopic.
Speaking with a reporter from Deadline London, Howard said that the director approached him to star in the film, but nothing has been finalized yet. Howard’s also quoted as saying “Everybody who loves music will hate me if I get this one wrong.”
Cameron Crowe originally reached out to Will Smith to portray the legendary soul singer, but Smith declined.
Another Marvin Gaye biopic, titled Sexual Healing, is in the works with Jesse L Martin (“Law & Order”) to play Gaye. Unlike Crowe’s film, Sexual Healing will only deal with the final years of Gaye’s life.
