Jesse L. Martin to Star in Marvin Gaye Biopic ‘Sexual Healing’
You may have previously heard that Lenny Kravitz was set to portray in the upcoming Marvin Gaye biopic, but it wasn’t to be. Jesse L. Martin has now replaced him as the lead in the film, titled Sexual Healing.
Martin was previously attached to star back in 2008, when James Gandolfini was also set to produce and co-star as music promoter Freddy Cousaert. Then the project hit some stumbling blocks, and Kravitz stepped in along with director Julien Temple.
Now Cousaert will be portrayed by Brendan Gleeson, and Vassal Benton and Fred Bestall will produce with Martin in the lead. The actor is best known for his role in ‘Law & Order’.
