Lenny Kravitz To Play Marvin Gaye in Biopic

(Gibson) Lenny Kravitz is set to play Marvin Gaye in a movie about the last few years of the singer's life. It will be Kravitz's first leading role, having previously appeared in The Hunger Games earlier this year.

The movie will be directed by Julien Temple, who directed the Sex Pistols movie The Great Rock'n'Roll Swindle.

Marvin Gaye was shot to death on March 31, 1984 in Los Angeles by his own father. He had been battling alcohol addiction in the early eighties, and was living in Ostend, Belgium. His second wife, Janis Gaye, has said that she feels "very skeptical" about the project, according to NME. more on this story
