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

Vivica Fox could play

Vivica Fox could play Whitney. I would choose Kelly Rowland to play her though. She would represent Whitney very well...

Tarajii is a great actress in

Tarajii is a great actress in my opinion but she lacks that natural grace needed to pull off Whitney...I really think Joy Bryant is the best choice, she has the looks, effortless grace, and I think she can flip the switch to give the sassyness that that role would need!

I think the only one that could play Whitney is Paula Patton,she would be perfect,she always reminded me of her,she's the only one that would do any justice to Whitney for sure.

Some of you are so basic.

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!

Wendy Raquel. Tasha Mack

Wendy Raquel. Tasha Mack would be a killer Whitney

Wow I was just thinking the

Wow I was just thinking the same thing....maybe use someone else as a younger Whit, but Tasha Mack would be so good as grown Whitney. Megan is too sultry like.....don't really get sassy diva out of her

I agree it should be Taraji

I agree it should be Taraji and Tyrese. They got the acting chops to pull it off. The story is an upgrade from Babyboy and a glamorous Whats Love Got to do with it. If done right it could be the shit.
Daniel from the 'D''s picture

yeah, but Whitney was

yeah, but Whitney was nobody's victim. nor was she abused, she had all the money and all the power stop trying to blame a man everything that went wrong in a woman's life. No one put a gun to whitney's head and Bobby is still alive and was on stage (working) when she parTying. Let's not rewrite history because you don't like it.

Guess I will be sitting with you because I agree! If Brad Pitt can look like a 100 year man I am sure Wendy can resemble a black woman in her same age group.

Only in your dreams could you

Only in your dreams could you be Whitney, Megan go take a real pill. Okay I never really comment, but I had to. I recall an article that did mention Meagan saying she wanted to play Whitney in a biopic and Whitney responded "I'm not even dead yet". How sad she untimely Passed. But what I didn't get from it was that Whitney said "yes yes Meagan, portray me in the biopic". It seems it was initiated by Meagan. I thought it was just water cooler talk. I didn't know anything was in the works unless Ms, Meagan is embellishing a bit. Idk because I wasn't there. If it is true, I don't think Meagan is the best actress for that role. While Meagan is beautiful, no denying that, she is an actress (IMO...not that great of one), I don't think she'd do that role justice of portraying Whitney. Whitney was a legend and had a presence to her. And not only that, the body types of the two women are completely different. I'm not sure who should play that role, and although it's quite ambitious of Meagan, I don't think it's for her.

I see Zoe Salanda myself.

I see Zoe Salanda myself. Meagan would be tragic as Whitney.

Keisha Knight Pullum. I

Keisha Knight Pullum. I forgot the movie she played in last, I think it was a Tyler Perry movie anyway she can bring the attitude to the role.

Yess!!! You are so spot on

Yess!!! You are so spot on with this choice... I ironically enough was watching "Girlfriends" the other day and said the exact same thing. She would be an excellent choice or call me crazy but I think Kelly Rowland could really deliver for the role.

I vote Joy Bryant - she has

I vote Joy Bryant - she has the tall, willowy frame. She can act. She started out as a model before she began acting. She is from the Bronx, she can be very fiesty and very hood even though she covers it well. She knows what it's like to live with a Bobby Brown type character, her live-in thug (ex) boyfriend used to deal. I think she would do an excellent job, however she doesn't have the star name, they would have to have an actor with name recognition play the other key characters in the story - like Cissy & John Houston, Bobby Brown, Clive Davis etc. It is too soon for a biopic though, let the poor woman rest a little in her grave. They are already selling her stuff in an auction #sigh

Ok I agree with this comment

Ok I agree with this comment because Joy Bryant definitly has the looks, and background for the role. Now, as for Cissy Houston, I think Phylicia Rashad could pull it off well. I like the idea of Tyrese for Bobby's role.

Okay, I just googled a pic of Joy Bryant, and looks wise I think she could be a great choice. Not sure if she can pull off the sassyness that will definitly be needed, but she has that graceful look of Whitney for sure.

Rapper/Actress Eve actually

Rapper/Actress Eve actually looks like Whitney at times and would do a great job. Meagan it may be a dream role and I don't want to take your dream away from you, but ummm yea Eve or an unknown actress.
Lisa's picture

EVE WOULD BE PERFECT!!!

EVE WOULD BE PERFECT!!! that's brilliant! she has the confidence/Attitude/swagger/ grace/ poise/ but she would need a good year with a serious acting & dialect coach and would have to loose 20lbs for the role like other dedicated actors do for career changing roles.

Sorry but Whitney does not

Sorry but Whitney does not have that smushed in face like Eve does. No Mam!

I also had a discussion with

I also had a discussion with Whitney to play her in a movie. We were only in the beginning stages though. More serious note, there's something about Rihanna (facially) that reminds me of Whitney. I've said this many times before Whitney's death that Rihanna looks like Whitney. I think they may have a similar personality - fun, quirky and confident. I'm not sure of Rihanna's acting skills but I could see her playing Whitney (lip sync of course)
Bella's picture

....They do not look ANYTHING

....They do not look ANYTHING alike. Rihanna's nose is far wide set; Whitney's is smaller. Rihanna has a defined cupid and full bottom lips -- Whitney does not; she hardly has any lips. Rihanna has a huge forehead; Whitney does not. Rihanna's face is more heart shaped; Whitney's is more oval shaped with a much more of a squared jaw. Rihanna's eyes are also more open, Whitney's are more hooded. Not to mention, body wise, Whitney was thin while Rihanna is more shapely. Girl you need to get you some glasses quick, fast and in a hurry lol ;P.
