    Martin tunes in 'Healing' role

    After years spent by various producers trying to get a Marvin Gaye biopic off the ground, a film about the legendary singer finally has been greenlighted. Jesse L. Martin is set to portray Gaye in "Sexual Healing," an independent drama written and to be directed by Lauren Goodman. The movie chronicles the final years of Gaye, who, after years of battling drugs and having parted ways with Motown, exiled himself to Europe. There, he was rescued by promoter Freddy Cousaert, who helped Gaye record his biggest-selling album, "Midnight Love," which produced Gaye's monster comeback hit, "Sexual Healing." Gaye's life was cut short the day before his 45th birthday in 1984, when his father killed him. (Nellie Andreeva)

    Yeah Jesse! If it's done well I think this could be the starmaker for him.

      ^ You're right, given the right team behind it and proper studio handling, this really could move him to the next level. He is so talented and quite lovely too!

      His extensive N.Y. theater credits run the gamut from Shakespeare to musical comedy and include such productions as "Timon of Athens" and "The Inspector General" (National Actors Theatre); "I Ain't Yo Uncle" (Hartford Stage); "Rock N' Roles From WM Shakespeare" (Actors Theatre of Louisville); "The Butcher's Daughter" (Cleveland Playhouse); "Romeo & Juliet" (Acting Company Tour); and "Two Gentlemen of Verona" (Arena Stage).
