Usher Loses Out On Marvin Gaye Roll

Usher beat to Marvin Gaye Roll by Jesse Martin
R&B singer Usher kept his eyes open for the leading role in the biographical film based on the life of Marvin Gaye.

This would not have been unchartered waters, as Usher has played Marvin Gaye before, during a guest-appearance on the TV show American Dreams. (Did anyone watch that show? It faded away pretty quickly).

Anyway, Usher has made it known that he would like to be the one to tell the story of Marvin Gaye, "Because I understand the conflict he had as a man."

Unless someone else comes up with a new script, there is a film Marvin Gaye inspired movie currently in production entitled "What's Going On," starring Jesse L. Martin - formerly of Law & Order .


  1. Jesse L. Martin looks more like Marvin Gaye. I think Usher in the role would have been too distracting.

    Entyway, YAY! You fixed your comment section. :-)

  2. Jesse is much more suitable for the role amd I think he sings too. Is he the guy from RENT?

    And yes THANK YOU for fixing the comment section. This is much better.

  3. Yes, Jesse does look more like M.G. and yes, he is the guy from Rent.

Michael Jackson: Before & After Thriller

As you may know by now, Michael Jackson will be on the December 2007 issue of Ebony Magazine. They are showcasing him 25 years after "Thriller".

I commend him on still trying to be out there after years of controversy and court cases, but I wish the man had stayed out of the plastic surgeon's office.

Here's Micheal Jackson before "Thriller"

Here's Micheal Jackson during "Thriller"
