Will Smith is Not Gaye

The film blogosphere has pounced on what feels like déjà vu at best and old news at worst, but just for the record: Will Smith has turned down the role of Marvin Gaye in Cameron Crowe's planned biopic of the legendary R&B vocalist and songwriter. Much more intriguing is the flashback that follows this disclosure: Crowe planned a Phil Spector biopic with Tom Cruise, but felt like "the third act had not been written" about the pop producer's life. Smart man. Can that get underway now? Maybe with Shia LaBeouf and a trailer full of wigs? [Variety]
