R&B superstar Usher wants to play the leading role in a biopic of legendary singer Marvin Gaye.

The 'Love in This Club' hitmaker has already played Gaye once before during a guest-appearance on US television show American Dreams.

And now he is desperate to portray Gaye in a movie version of his life story.

He says: "I want to be the person who tells the story of Marvin Gaye because I understand the conflict he had as a man."

Unfortunately for the singer, a film about Marvin Gaye's life is already in production - with former Law & Order star Jesse L. Martin in the lead role.
