As many of you know there has been talk of putting together a biopic on Whitney Houston. Now before people freak out and say its too soon after her death to even think about creating this...Whitney was in talks to do her biopic before she passed away. So who should play Whitney in her biopic? Its so hard because Whitney had such a unique voice...I mean she was "The Voice".
I have some ideas and opinions on who I think should play Whitney, and I will also list my reservations on who some other people have suggested.
Check them out below.
Who will play Whitney Houston?!?!
Jennifer Hudson: I think Jennifer Hudson is a great choice...she is a talented singer and actress. Many people feel that Jennifer's voice isn't up to par to cover Whitney's music. I, however, think she has done a great job covering Whitney Houston in the past, and Jennifer has a Oscar...so there is no doubt about her acting skills. But, Jennifer does seem like too much of a typical choice. Nonetheless, she would be a perfect choice.
Rihanna: For some reason Rihanna's name has been brought up to play Whitney Houston...ummmm yeah. I don't even know why or how people are even entertaining this idea. Rihanna doesn't have the voice to sing Whitney songs, and has anyone seen her act? Ok...lets move on.
Meagan Good: Meagan Good is a very talented actress...she has appeared in numerous movies, but she always seems to be the same type of role. She hasn't really played a role that has had any depth to it. Megan Good was actually in talks with Whitney prior to her death to play the role. Meagan would of course have to lip sync but I don't think she is a bad choice.
Angela Bassett: Angela is prob my #1 choice to play Whitney. Angela played the hell outta of Tina Tuner, she did a bang up job playing Katherine Jackson. This could be the role to get Angela a much deserved Oscar.
Vivica Fox: Vivica was named...but I really have no comment on her playing the role aside from NO!
Bobbi Kristina: There were some talks on Twitter that BK would be the perfect person to play her mother. No, no, no...that wouldn't be a good idea. I think its too soon for her to even consider playing her mother, plus who knows if she can act? Maybe she can play herself...I don't know.
Michelle Williams: Michelle would be another good choice...she definitely has a beautiful voice and she is a great actress (as portrayed in the plays she has been in). Plus Michelle is super thin and looks the most like Whitney. Who can I call to suggest this? Lol
Beyonce: Of course Queen B has been mentioned but sigh...Im just not sold on Beyonce as an actress. While yes she did good in DreamGirls that was a different kind of role than a biopic. But since Beyonce can sing...and she is Queen B her name will get tossed around. Im just not convinced.
Kerry Washington: Kerry is a beautiful girl and of course her acting skills are on par. Can she sing though? That is the big question. Yes, she can always lip sync but Im not completely sold on Kerry either...but Im sure you wouldn't disappoint if she got picked.
Tamia: Tamia is one of the most underrated singers ever. Its like she is almost always forgotten. She has such a powerful, smooth voice and she's gorgeous. While we don't know if she can act or not, we can always find out.
Brandy: Brandy has proven herself as both a talented actress and singer. While many people think Brandy doesn't have the voice to cover Whitney...Im pretty confident that she can. Brandy does have a emotional side that comes through in her every day life so playing some of Whitney's lowest moments may be tough.
Some other notable actresses would be Taraji Henson, Regina King, Nia Long, Jada Pinkett, or even a new actress that no one has seen before.
