Tyrese Gibson has announced that he’s going to to portray his friend, the late R&B legend Teddy Pendergrass in his pending biopic. But he can’t give the full details yet.  Now the R&B singer turned actor has said that he would like for “Precious” director Lee Daniels to direct him in the picture.

Gibson has said the project is in motion and he feels he could play the role to a tee because the artists share similar skin tone, vocal range and sound.
