The road to a biopic about soul legend Marvin Gaye has been a long and weary one. We'll keep it brief, but earlier this year, Broadway regular and "Law & Order" star Jesse L. Martin took the lead role in "Sexual Healing," a years-in-the-making movie that he was attached to way back in 2008, with James Gandolfini to co-star, before it fell apart. Lenny Kravitz was briefly cast, before it landed back in Martin's lap. Martin signed back on and filming began this summer. Unfortunately, production was halted with three weeks left to shoot, with financing evaporating and distributor Focus Features pulling out as well. All of which makes this next bit, all the more interesting.

What goes around comes around, or something like that. The forever developing Marvin Gaye biopic "Sexual Healing" has once again switched out its lead, but this time has gone back the man who was originally tapped for the gig.

It certainly hasn't been for lack of trying that we haven't had a Marvin Gaye biopic. Cameron Crowe has been trying for years to get one made, while F. Gary Gray was also attached to helm a project titled simply "Marvin." But now it looks like Julien Temple is getting ahead of the pack with a leading man who has acting and musical chops.
