Footage from the controversial Marvin Gaye biopic Sexual Healing starring Jesse L. Martin has been released to the public. Watch 4-mins from the film inside and listen to Lil’ Mo’s “Ls UP” single…..
Four minutes of footage from the promo reel of Julien Temple’s Marvin Gaye biopic, Sexual Healing, starring Jesse L. Martin (as Gaye), S. Epatha Merkerson (as Marvin’s Gaye’s mother, Alberta Cooper Gay), and Dwight Henry (as Marvin Gaye’s father, Marvin Gay, Sr.) have been leaked online.
According to Shadow And Act, the film has an “anticipated” release date of April 1, 2014, but there’s been a few bumps in the road for the film (which is only at 70% completion). But can we discuss how Jesse became almost a spitting image of the singer?
If the reports are correct, we hope the director is able to secure additional funding and another distributor because Jesse looks SEXY. In case you don’t remember, Lenny Kravtiz was originally slated to play the slain singer but he backed out due to pressure from the Gaye family.
The film focuses on Marvin’s recording of the Midnight Love album (while he was heavily into drugsand living in Belgium).
