Jesse L. Martin Will Play Marvin Gaye After All

Back in 2008, Jesse L. Martin was attached to play Marvin Gaye in the biopic Sexual Healing. The project pretty much stalled until late last year, when Lenny Kravitz was announced as the new star of the film. Now yet another iteration is upon us, with Martin back onboard, according to Deadline. What's going on, movie? (That joke hurts us more than it hurts you.)
