'Motown' Casting Call: Actors To Play Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Others...

I thought this was already all done with casting, but I guess not! You'll recall a casting call back in July for a young actor to play a young Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Berry Gordy. I guess they didn't find what they were looking for from the submissions they received back then, because in the casting call that follows, it's still listed, along with a few other parts that need to be filled.

All the information you need to know follows below; good luck!:
