Terrence Howard Wants to Play Marvin Gaye 


So director Cameron Crowe has been busy working on a biopic about legendary soul singer Marvin Gaye for the last 3 1/2 years! Now, Deadline Hollywood has exclusively learned that Terrence Howard has been talking to Crowe about starring in the film.

Once upon a time, Will Smith was favored to play Gaye, but the actor turned Crowe down. Berry Gordy Jr., Motown founder, is supporting the project, so the film will feature Gaye songs since Motown owns the rights to the singer's music.

“Nothing’s been signed on paper yet,” Howard tells Deadline Hollywood. “Everybody who loves music will hate me if I get this one wrong.”

I think Howard will do a good job as Gaye, and Crowe is an instinctive director and a music connoisseur, so this project has great potential!
