Lenny Kravitz's first starring film role is an ambitious one. According to reports, the singer is set to play Marvin Gaye in the upcoming Julian Temple-directed biopic. The film will focus on Gaye's later life and struggle with alcohlism. Thus far, Kravitz has limited his acting career to minor parts, such as Cinna in The Hunger Games and Nurse John in Precious.
