Thanks to Jamie Foxx, Marvin Gaye’s life story will be told on the small screen. And this project even has the support of Gaye’s family!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Foxx will executive produce a limited series about Marvin Gaye alongside de Passe Jones Entertainment’s Suzanne de Passe and Madison Jones. “I’ve been a huge fan my whole life. His brilliance in music unparalleled,” Foxx tells THR. “Marvin Gaye’s story has always fascinated me.”

There have been many attempts at a Marvin Gaye biopic, but none had ever received the blessing of the family, until now. “This project will be a powerful and definitive telling of Marvin Gaye’s life story,” says the singer’s son Marvin Gaye III, an executive producer on the new project.

Gaye was known for such hits as “What’s Going On,” “Sexual Healing” and “Let’s Get It On.” THR notes, he was one of Motown’s most successful artists before he was fatally shot in 1984 at age 44 by his father following a family dispute in their Los Angeles home.


Oprah Loved Being A Braided Blonde Bombshell In ‘A Wrinkle In Time’



Oprah Winfrey is a blonde bombshell in Ava Duvernay’s “A Wrinkle in Time” and she loved every minute of it. HipHollywood sat down with the media mogul along with Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling to talk about playing the Mrs. and their elaborate hair, make-up and costumes.

“Girl we had hair for days,” gushed Winfrey. “My favorite was the ponytail, the braid.”


Celebrity hair guru Kim Kimble, who frequently works with Beyonce, headed up the film’s hair department. For the film she turned Lady O into a blonde, Reese into a red head and gave Kaling fab braided locks. “They were like [hair] sculptures,” said Kaling who plays Mrs. Who.

So how long did it take to get these ladies out of this world ready? “Hours,” joked Winfrey and Reese in unison.

To be exact, the ladies were in hair and make-up 3-5 hours daily as lead hairstylist Kim Kimble and make-up artists LaLette Littlejohn and Derrick Rutledge got them camera ready. “I think Kim and the team worked for days before, sculpting and making it right,” added Winfrey who plays Mrs. Which.

Derrick Rutledge, Winfrey’s personal makeup artist who also worked on the film, designed rhinestone eyebrows for each Mrs. Which ensemble. Meanwhile costume designer Paco Delgado drew from volcano explosions and depictions of galaxies to create costumes that made Winfrey shimmer and appear larger than life.

In the Disney big screen adaption, the three celestial beings – Mrs. Which, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Whatsit lead 13-year-old Meg (Storm Reid) and others on a journey to rescue the girl’s scientist father (Chris Pine) from evil otherworldly forces.

It’s better seen than simply described, so be sure to check out A Wrinkle In Time in theaters now!
