If you didn’t already know Lifetime Network will be releasing a biopic based upon the life of the late Whitney Houston. America’s Next Top Model runner-up, Yaya DaCosta, has been cast to play Houston.
If you hadn’t heard Whitney’s daughter, Bobbi Kris, is not happy with the production of this movie. She felt that she should have been cast to play her mother. I totally disagree with her and so did the director Angela Bassett, and she said it best when she said Bobbi Kris is not an actor and a role on a Tyler Perry sitcom and reality show don’t constitute acting skills.
I think Yaya is a good choice to play Whitney, she looks like Whitney and she has acting experience. I also think with Angela Bassett at the helm the biopic will be good and she wouldn’t let it be anything but a good representation of Whitney.
DaCosta recently recreated Houston’s 1987 iconic album cover for Entertainment Weekly, and I think she did an awesome job! I am very interested to see this biopic and see what aspects of Houston’s life will be covered
Whut say you?
