Lenny Kravtiz Cast to Play Marvin Gaye in Biopic

November 29, 2012 12:30 am

Tuesday would have been the 70th birthday of iconic rock star Jimi Hendrix and to coincide with the milestone anniversary a biopic film about the guitar player “All Is by My Side” starring Outkast’s Andre 3000 is currently in post-production.

But we’ve learned Andre won’t be the only current pop icon playing a legendary one on the big screen. Lenny Kravitz has just been cast as soul singing virtuoso Marvin Gaye in an untitled film that focuses on the troubled end of his life in the early 80s.

Though Andre & Lenny have both had supporting roles in the past these are their 1st starring turns, but casting a musician in both biopics makes sense.
