Marvin Gaye Biopic Sneak Peak
According to Crunk and Disorderly, there is more going wrong with this flick. I'm sure Marvin is somewhere spinning.
First, it was casting but there is no Usher or Lenny Kravitz (whew!) but the original pick for the past decade or so, Jesse L. Martin.
Then it was music clearance issues as the Gay(e) family does not own the rights.
So why proceed? Beats the hell outta me!
Now I gotta warn you, in the clip above, there are a lot of White women, no Berry Gordy or any familiar Motown figure, and ...yeah, that was my feeling exactly.
