Fruitvale Station star Michael B. Jordan has landed in EW’s New Hollywood: Entertainers On the Rise issue. And he’s in great company. Academy Award nominee Quvenzhane Wallis, Kevin Hart, Kerry Washington, Condola Rashad and Michael’s Fruitvale Station director Ryan Coogler also made the list.

Inside the mag, Michael reveals he may star in The Fantastic Four reboot and that he thinks auditions are very awkward.  

”Action auditions are the worst. You’ve got maybe two lines: ‘What’s up, dude? Die! Die! Die!’ and you act like you’re shooting somebody, and you’ve got a rolled-up script as a gun. It’s the most awkward thing ever.”

Ha.  But we’re sure he could pull it off.  Good to see Mr. Jordan, who also starred in Red Tails and on NBC’s "Parenthood", get his due.

CHANGE UP: Actor Jesse L. Martin REPLACES Lenny Kravitz In “Sexual Healing” Biopic

 photo JesseLMartinPunctureNewYorkPremieregF3mu3NQ17gl.jpg

Actor Jesse L. Martin is replacing Lenny Kravtiz in the lead role for the upcoming Marvin Gaye biopic "Sexual Healing."  Find out more inside….

Previously, we told you about the controversial Marvin Gaye biopic "Sexual Healing" and how Marvin’s son, Marvin Gaye III was a little upset that his childhood friend Lenny Kravitz had agreed to the role.  Mainly because the film focuses on the turbulent times of Marvin’s life and III wasn’t feeling it.  Now, Deadline.com is reporting that there’s been a shakeup in casting and now Marvin III will have to direct his frustration towards actor Jesse L. Martin.  If he still has any.

Jesse, who formerly starred on "Law & Order", will replace Lenny in the Julien Temple-directed flick which will start filming in later this month in Europe.

The film, produced by Vassal Benton and Fred Bestall, will focus on the music legend’s time in Europe in the 1980s when he attempted a drug-free comeback with the help of British music promoter Freddy Cousaert (played by Brendan Gleason).

Outside of the film, Jesse recently starred in the NBC pilot "The Secret Lives Of Husbands And Wives" (so far….the show hasn’t been picked up).

NO LIKEY: Marvin Gaye’s Son Wants Lenny Kravitz To WALK AWAY From Biopic Role

Photobucket

Marvin Gaye III, the son of the late singer, wants Lenny Kravtiz to walk away from a planned biopic saying the producers and directors of the film are all wrong from the project. Get more info inside….

As with the Nina Simone biopic, the family of late singer Marvin Gaye is not on board with a planned biopic, but that hasn’t stopped producers from moving forward and hiring Lenny Kravtiz.  This would be a high profile acting role for Lenny, who attended an East Room reception at the White House before making an appearance at the Kennedy Center Honors last night.   But now, Marvin Gaye III is speaking out with hopes that his childhood friend & old schoolmate, Lenny, will honor the legacy of his father and withdraw from the flick. Marvin told TMZ, 

"The producers and directors of this film are very wrong and shameful … [They're] trying to do a film about a low period in his life. They don’t even know the whole story." 

Apparently, the movie will focus on the 80′s–a time of heavy drug use and right before Marvin shot and killed himself.

Marvin hopes to speak to Lenny because he doesn’t understand why he would do this movie–seeing that he and Marvin Jr. are still friends. "I would hope [Lenny] doesn’t have any idea that we are against this film being done."

We’ll let you know if Lenny changes his mind.  Highly doubtful….
