Meagan Good REFLECTS On Her Friendship With Whitney Houston And Hints That Biopic May Still Happen

Before her death, Whitney Houston was considering turning her life into a movie with Meagan Good in the lead role.  See what Meagan had to say about Whitney's sassy spirit and if the film will still happen  inside .... 

Meagan Good recently revealed to E! Online that she and Whitney previously discussed a possible movie for Meagan to star in....based on Whitney. Meagan recently talked about the flick and what she remembers about Whitney.

"We were fairly in the beginning stages," Meagan said at the Vanity Fair and Juicy Couture's Vanities party at Siren Studios in Hollywood this week. She said a big concern was how the movie would end.

"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."

If the movie does get made, don't expect Meagan to do any singing.

"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."

While discussing Whitney (in the present tense) Meagan began to get emotional saying,

"For anybody spending time around Whitney, she's so much fun.  She's got just like a sassy attitude and is very funny and funky. She's definitely a fun person to be around."

 

R.I.P. Whitney Houston

Meagan Good playing Whitney

Meagan Good playing Whitney will be one of the funniest things ever. Meagan, Whitney was just joking, don't get carried away now. And, you CANNOT act. Can people stop naming all these ghetto actresses. Paula Patton can't act to save her life, let alone play whitney. Leila Lopes will be so perfect, that's if she can act and speak English. She's simply gorgeous, she will pull off the young whitney well, they will have to find another one to play her when the crack and alcohol took effect. Keke Palmer is too young. I can't think of any other person off head, maybe someone unknown like someone already mentioned.

The best person to play

The best person to play Whitney is Joy Bryant, maybe Zoe Saldanha If Miss Universe Leila Lopes can act. SHe'd be perfect to play the young Whitney. Paula Patton -cannot act to save her life - too ditzy -is too white looking - does not posess the grace Whitney had Sorry Meagan but this part is not for you. Whitney's story is too big for your shoes.

Megan Good would not be a

Megan Good would not be a good Whitney. Joy Bryant would actually be a good choice with skin tone, build and height. The vocals could be Whitney's. And really? EVE? She looks like a pit bull, how she going to play someone as beautiful and elegant as Whitney Houston. Paula Patton, Gabrielle Union both play the same kind of roles all the time...and look nothing like Whitney. I hope that when and if this movie is ever made that they choose a black woman to play the role, and not a bi-racial person or someone who is already in everything. Taraji has no business playing Whitney.

Aww Meagan Good, bless her

Aww Meagan Good, bless her heart. When Whitney said that you could play her she was clearly just being nice. If Whitney was alive and found out you were playing her she would have a fit! If anyone Whitney would want Brandy or Monica since she's mentioned on several occasions how much they remind her of her younger self. I like Paula Patton but whoever said she should play whitney is a damn lie! First of all they look nothing alike. I know it shouldn't be about skin color but Paula is mulatto and is too light. Whitney Houston has a brown skin complexion. That's like saying Tika Sumpter should play Aaliyah. Clearly everyone would have a fit because she's too dark. But when it's a darker toned woman being portrayed no one sees the issue with the actor being much lighter. But hey I guess that's how it is see wonder woman she was originally black until the mass media made her white. Even catwoman when michelle pfeiffer played her before halle berry. Even though eartha kitt was a black woman who originally played her. Not trying to make this about skin color but I just wanted to point that out

WHY is Paula Patton ol' dry

WHY is Paula Patton ol' dry stale ass being mentioned to play WHITNEY???!!!! Are y'all crazy? pauls plays the same dizzy broad in every role like that damn gabby union. NO BUENO. They need to do a worldwide search for an unknown or at least get someone from broadway. HELL NO to Paula Patton though. Please gawd no.

is meagan livign in

is meagan livign in dreamland?? she isnt exactly a great actress. whitney did...what, three movies and would still do circles around whatever it is ms.good has done. im sorry. it is NOT a role for her. and its not bc she cant sing....simply bc those shoes are too big to fill. angela bassett wasnt a singer and she played tina flawlessly and really didnt look much like her either! she was just good at getting tina down...epic actress! if meagan was a better actress this would be something to seriously consider otherwise................................................
ooooimTELLIN's picture

I totally agree with you!

I totally agree with you! Its not so much about looks when you have an amazing talent and angela was TINA! I mean you forgot all about the fact that they look absolutely nothing alike, but she did her role exceptionally well! Can someone tell me the last movie Ms Good was even in??? Not only that, besides eve's bayou what dramatic role has she played with such an emotional range that would be needed to play Whitney??? Everybody can't do everything. That's just like when it was talks about Beyonce' playing Angela Davis...I almost had a heart-attack! It should go to Joy Bryant or Zoe Saldana...or an unknown talent.

In honor of Whitney Houston's

In honor of Whitney Houston's wishes, I don't think there should be a debate of who would be best. No one knew Whitney like Whitney! Obviously there was something special in Meagan Good, which mirrored a reflection of Whitney's true essence. Opinions are always welcomed but at what point does someone's personal wishes not solicit a debate people, find something else to debate about. Support Whitney's decision for once, it's so deserved!

Out of all of these

Out of all of these suggestions, Joy Bryant would be the best to play Whitney.. point, blank period. Meagan Good? I cannot see it. It would be nice to have someone who at least resembles her. Isn't Meagan Goode like 5'3 or something? Her playing Whitney would just be wrong. Joy Bryant has Whitney's look going on, and I can see her seriously pulling off the role and really taking it seriously. Eve? Come on now, Eve can barely wear a dress ... how in the world is she going to play a lady like Whitney?

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU..... FINALLY SOMEONE HAS THE COURAGE TO ADMIT THAT TARAJI HENSON IS A FUGLY CHICK. SHE NOT EVEN A GOOD ACTRESS JUST MAKES ME SICK Some of you are so basic. First of all Tajaji is too ugly to play Whitney and so is Wendy Raquel Robinson. Both of these ladies are sooo not even in Whitney's Radar where looks are concerned. Wendy looks too old she's starving to compete w/ some of the younger women on that show. She's starving and it shows all in her face and Taraji is just one hurt sister. We need someone younger to reflect Whitney in the early days and the later days. Wendy is 45 and looks 45. Taraji is about 42 and looks 52. Sorry she is not aging well at all. Whitney even on the last pics hair a mess and all still look better than both of these ladies. She had natural beauty that these 2 don't have! Some of you are so basic.

i think Meagan Good playing

i think Meagan Good playing Whitney Houston is part of a comedy skit right? Let me move on to beautiful talented actresses that can play Whitney. Joy Bryant doesn't sound too bad. Taraji is too dramatic, definitely not Tasha mack. What about Andra Mcdonald from Raisin in the sun? or Brandy?
