Meagan Good Starring In Whitney Houston Biopic?

Meagan Good Starring In Whitney Houston Biopic?

From Vivica Fox (years ago), to Lark Voorhies, Brandy… and now Meagan Good is another actress said to be interested in playing (or in the running to play) Whitney Houston in a film based on the late singer's life.

But Meagan says she got reasonably close because she and Houston were in talks (before the singer's death) about Good starring in a Whitney biopic.

"We were fairly in the beginning stages… We were supposed to meet today actually,Good told EOnline last night in Hollywood.

Interesting. I can't immediately picture Meagan Good as Whitney Houston; but Whitney clearly saw something that I don't.

Good added, "My feeling is because she has the film Sparkle coming out and she's brilliant in it and she looks beautiful and healthy, my feeling was that's how we should end the movie—as a new beginning for her," in reference to how the film would end, given Houston's recent death.

Good also said she wouldn't sing in the film he flick, stating, "I don't think we've ever had a singer in history that I remember that could sing like her… Plus, when people see someone's life story they want to hear that person's voice because they connect with it, in their spirit and their soul. So you would have to use her voice."

She speaks almost as if the project is/was a done deal, and is indeed going to happen.

But this is all news to me.

Eve, should play Whitney, she can act, sing and she has some of same strong personality traits of Whitney, as well as looks. Eve knows the good and the bad of the music industry.

or maybe Demetria Mckinney she has a very beautiful voice.

I have been watching Tamara Gray on video. She did one of Houston's song while she was on "Boston Public". It was as if Whitney Houston was in the room. I personally like it when the real actress sings BUT her voice sounds like the one being portrayed. Megan Good can't give you that but Tamara Gray can. Look on YouTube and tell me what you think.

nothing

maybe Shannon kane

I THINK PAULA PATTON IS THE PERSON THAT SHOULD PLAY WHITNEY IN THE SINGERS BIO PIC

I THINK SHE LOOKS LIKE WHITNEY AND WOULD B PERFECT FOR THE ROLE

GHJKL

Joy Bryant would be PER-FECT. I love Meagan good but I don't think she can pull it off.
Paula Patton really does look like Whitney and she's a strong actress but then again, I don't think she can pull it off. Remember Karyn Parsons who played Hilary on the Fresh prince of bel air ? She used to look like whitney A LOT. But yes, I think Joy Bryant would be absolutely perfect

Tknow987

I think Joy Bryant would be perfect for a Whitney Houston role… She has exact facial features and body type as her…. Now if she can sing?… Who knows …. But lip syncing can take care of all that… If she can't!

Charise

What ab0ut T-Boz, from TLC? But I don't know if she's ever acted before.

regina

paula patton favors a younger whitney, just add a little makeup to match the beautiful whitney houston skin, im just devasted, about whitney i love her so much, just
a real loss

regina stokes

paula patton looks like the young whitney and she can act please pepole paula patton it would be fitting to portray whitney houston to beautifull women

nola

Joy Bryant looks just like a younger Whitney and she can act, I hope she is considered for the role. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0117146/

Whitney Houston was astounded, overjoyed and excited when she listen to Jennifer Hudson sing I Will Always Love You to her when she was honored by BET. If Whitney Houston a true "Artist" approved of Jennifer Hudson's singing voice, her opinion should be rated number (1) one.

Donella

Someone suggested KeKe Palmer in another thread. I could support that.

DRT

How about Tamyra Gray from American Idol. She has believable acting chops and she can sing a sang song! She grew up in a church chore singing gospel. She is married and has a child. She is pretty enough and if she is not tall enough. Put her on a apple box and call it movie magic.

anon

Why not nicole beharie she has the body type and is a great actress plus she looks a little like a young whitney.

melissa

I wouldn't believe Megan Good as Whitney Houston..We deserve to see someone who is a strong actress to portray the roll of one of our National Treasures. Please, if it counts for anything get great actresses like Kerri Washington, or Regina King..and I even believe with the proper coaching Joy Bryant could pull it off…To me she is the most similar in looks, and I would believe it if her acting is strong and raw…This biopic needs to be Great..Something we will never forget…like the movie "Ray". They did an excellent job with this film..I hope the production team can step up to the plate…and bring Whitney's story to life on film in a moving believable way…Wonder who would play Bobby Brown? Kevin Hart..lol

carmen

watch video girl…meagan good does an outstanding acting job…she could play whitney

JACKIE

I CAN THAT HAPPEN ???don't you want some one that can act and not the same person in every movie….new blood make it worth her LIFE

A B E D

WELCOME
I HAVE FILM VERY VERY GOOD
PEOPLE WANT LIKE THIS THE FILM…………
NAME THIS THE FILM…… [THE STREET THE LOST]
DO YOU WANT TO LISTENS MY STORY ……………………..HORROR VERY

Nadine

I kind of get that Joy Bryant has the body type and complexion, as some have noted, but she has always been so bland. I just wouldn't believe it, but that's just me.

jmac

I'd give a shot to Megan Good and Joy Bryant. Vivica would work if it's not a soft biopic. Hell no to Rashida and Paula. Hudson looks and sounds nothing like Whitney.

Cali

of all the suggestions made here, the only one I can get behind is Joy Bryant – she could pull it off.

3000

What about Wendy Raquel Robinson??

Kia

Love Meagan and I think she's an interesting young talent, who does deserve challenging fare… however for a biopic on Whitney–an unkown all the way. If there MUST be a familiar face, I'd at least give Joy Bryant a screen test.

ms.stone

No.

Donella

Nona Gaye?

Remy

…rashia , zoe , paula is to light… Whitney is brown
Skin…..now the brown skin girls viv fucked up her
Face dnt wany that to play her
Brandy dnt think she got the ummp
But megan good is perfect to play it idk how tall
She is but I believe she can look lik her and
Play the part….no shade on wat I said but jus sayn

Nadine

An ingenue please. There are so many talented actresses we have yet to meet. I knew enough actresses who had the height, similar features as Whitney and the skill. Meghan is adorable, but her features are very strong and are somewhat signature to her. I like her as an actress, but sometimes I just end up thinking to myself, while she's performing, "huh, she actually looks like a a doll".

Suzanne

Only Vivica Fox has what it takes to play Whitney. Remember Viv started off as the black sensation who catapulted to mainstream because of Independence Day. She fell off and has had a few embarassing moments like Ms. Houston later on in her career. Let's be real. Viv understands Whitney. She can be poised at times, and then she can be sassy and throw down just like Whitney. They have similar personalities. All this talk off other possibilities is just ridiculous. SOMEBODY CALL VIVICA FOX NOW! This could be her comeback role.

Barbara

Jennifer Hudson is beautiful and has the "pipes" to do the singing; and she can act too. My choice.

Sirrom

I believe Zoe Saldana would be a great choice for the role.

3000

Paula Patton is the only person that should play Whitney imo…

Love

I can see Brandy pulling it off with the proper training. They were close and they worked closely together in the past. She might have the best insight.

Brandon

I love Meagan but I think j HUD would be a better choice

Jules

If you're going to do it, you have to cast Joy Bryant. She looks like her, she's tall, and she could pull it off.

Rota

Epic miscasting. Houston and good are very pretty women but look nothing alike. Besides withney was tall and slim. Good is short and curvyish

Darkan

@ JAI Agreed!!! Not!!! Unknown please!!!

Clomax

Pretty actress with name recogntion who could pull it off. I'd like to see some tests.

Jai

NOT!!!
