Terrence Howard to Play Marvin Gaye in Biopic?
Posted 05.17.10 by reelz
Cameron Crowe's movie about Marvin Gaye may have its lead. According to Deadline Hollywood, the iconic Motown singer/songwriter may be played by Iron Man 2 cast off Terrence Howard — after Will Smith apparently passed on the project.
Taking on a role like this certainly won't be an easy task. Howard has even said as much, himself.
Everybody who loves music will hate me if I get this one wrong.
Howard shares a fair enough resemble to the legendary singer, but does he have the singing chops? Can he even sing at all? Take a listen to Terrence's dulcet tones on a track from his very own R&B album, Shine Through It, and tell us what you think.
