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

Bitch please I know enough to

Bitch please I know enough to know that Whitney was very beautiful and Taraji is very "unbeautiful" to say the least. I know lots of people that think that Taraji is ugly. There are indeed some beautiful black women in Hollywood but Taraji ain't one. But thanks for telling me what I don't know.
you know better's picture

Taraji and Tyrese should come

Taraji and Tyrese should come back together to play Bobby and Whitney. They would both be excellent.

Sorry but acting does not

Sorry but acting does not come naturally to Monica. Whitney was also prettier than Monica. Why do you think you have never seen her try to act like Brandy. That's because she can't!

THE ONLY PERSON I CAN SEE

THE ONLY PERSON I CAN SEE PLAYING MS. WHITNEY IS MISS UNIVERSE LEILA LOPEZ.......no other chick in hollywood comes close....I know Meagan wants to expand her vixen acting roles but playing whitney is down right laughable.

Ok here's the run down. Some

Ok here's the run down. Some of you have thrown some interesting people in the mix. Some of you would be bad casting agents! Meagan Good/Cute girl but too short Jill Scott/ Let's just say does not fit the body image 2 types of hell to the No but good actress though Kerry Washington/ Too short but she can act Tracey Ellis Ross/ Not pretty enough Gabby Union/ #1can't Act #2 too phony#3 can't watch her without crindging. Let's just say I would hurt someone if I see your play my fav singer! Zoe Saldana / Maybe? She can act .Right body frame but missing a personality and soul Halle Berry/ Just No Wendy Raquel Robinson/ Features are too Big and frankly not cute enough. 45yr playing a young Whitney. A No No and another No! Sanna Lathan/ Can Act but will have to loose weight we all know she loves her curves but Maybe? Love her Regina King/ Love her but not a good fit. Maybe Kelly HellNo Rowland/ not cute enough Brandy/ Double not cute enough J-hud Tripple not cute enough Ciara/ Maybe if she is allowed to lipsing. She also is very articulate like Whitney was. I will miss her. DRUM ROLLS PLEASE! After carefully deciding I pick JOY BRYANT OR YA YA DECOSTA Or MEGALYNN ECHIKUNWOKE from The 4400. ALL THESE ladies can act ALL have the body type and ALL are not sore on the eyes and will do Whitney justice! ALL 3 LADIES are Pretty Brown Ladies just like Whitney was. To play Whitney you need the face the body type and lots of personality! If you don't know Ya Ya Decosta was the runner up on Next Top Model and has played in a few movies like: The Honey Dripper w/ Danny Glover. YaYa played :Chinadoll and she has had other roles as well. Good actress/model

You are so right I was gung ho for Joy Bryant but I think Megalynne would be great I love her on House of Lies. She's pretty and has the right body and complexion.

I must say that I agree with

I must say that I agree with your comment. As a black man, I don't think that Jennifer Hudson, Kim Elise, Sanaa Lathan, Megan Goode, Gabrielle Union, etc.. could play Ms. Houston. They either aren't the right skin tone and/or their body image is not same as Whitney's. I read the rest of the comments and I must say it would be better to select a new comer. Some of these suggestions are ridiculous and yes people are entitled to their opinion but COME ON NOW REALLY??? That's like Keshia Knight Pulliam (Rudy from the Cosby Show) playing Aaliyah?? WTF. Yes Keshia is pretty but let's use our common sense and see if we see any resemblance to her???? LOL
DeVante's picture

What does your comment have

What does your comment have to do with you being a black man? You bring up some valid points and I agree with you but I just don't see what your race and gender have to do with anything you said.
LX's picture

An Unknown person could very

An Unknown person could very well be the solution. Just as long as they do her justice. Good analogy on Keisha K Pullen attractive girl but her an Aaliyah are like comparing apple and oranges and K's look would be utterly ridiculous for playing the role of Aaliyah. I totally agree some of the names thrown out there are down right laughable!
LovelyGirl's picture

What up Devante? I've read

What up Devante? I've read these comments also and the majority of the suggestions can't play Whitney because THEY ARE NOT ATTRACTIVE ENOUGH. I don't think Jennifer Hudson and Kimberly (don't know her last name) are ugly but they are not attractive enough to play her and they are the wrong skin tone. I will also be upset if the wrong person is cast for this movie. Newcomer, yesss indeed!!!!

I've always thought Joy

I've always thought Joy Bryant resembled Whitney w/ her looks, so maybe her, not Meagan though. Her cheeks are too chubby.

Joy Bryant has a similar body

Joy Bryant has a similar body structure also.
SRenita's picture

The only suggestion that I've

The only suggestion that I've read so far that sounds fairly decent is Joy Bryant but in all honesty it would probably be best to get an unknown..someone that has the look, poise, and talent. I think they should focus more so on the acting since the singing would be Whitney's recordings anyway b/c there's no one that could do her justice.

I'm just surprised that

I'm just surprised that Hollywood isn't pushing for Jennifer Aniston and Tom Cruise to play Whitney and Bobby.

Meagan Good does not have the

Meagan Good does not have the acting chops to take a real character that people actual know. Also we all know serious actors don't let you all in there business (know who they really are) so you can't pigeon hold them E.G. she could never play a nun because we've seen too many pictures of her partying. but Halle, Zoe, you don't know them they con morph into whatever you want them to be. SERIOUS ACTORS keep the public at bay, when they party/shop/ etc. they leave out the back door

I think Kimberly Elise or

I think Kimberly Elise or Paula Patton should play Whitney???
Jennifer's picture

Sorry Jennifer but Kimberly

Sorry Jennifer but Kimberly Elise is not attractive enough to play Whitney Houston and she also the wrong skin tone. I am not saying Kimberly is ugly but just like some other people said that Jennifer Hudson isn't attractive enough, I feel the same way about Kimberly Elise. Paula Patton?? She's too light in my opinion. The only similarity is the drug substance abuse and they are both goofy! LOL. I am not sure if Paula is the right height???
Keshia's picture

Perhaps Hollyweird should

Perhaps Hollyweird should just get a newcomer to play Whitney Houston. Megan Good is pretty I don't see her playing Whitney. It would be nice if the newcomer is beautiful like Whitney, the same skin tone (no one dark). And yes I am a dark complexion black woman but the person who portrays Whitney needs to be the same complexion as Whitney. Not too dark and not too light and can sing and hit those high notes and I agree with Keshia and the other postings that Jennifer Hudson and that woman from Tyler Perry's first movie. I think her name is Kim?? They are not the right skin tone and not attractive enough to play Whitney Houston!!!
Tina's picture

I agree with both Tina and

I agree with both Tina and Keshia. This person has to beautiful to start with. Not mediocre. And I can't get past someone light skin or too dark trying portraying Whitney. That would make it unbelievable off the back! This is an extremely TOUGH casting.

I'm sorry, but it MUST be

I'm sorry, but it MUST be said. All of these celebrities want to ride Whitney's coat tails to stay relevant, talking about how they were such good friends. Child please. Friends are there in your darkest hour when you need them most. Where were these "friends" when Whitney was going through it financially as was ablaut to lose her homes? Where were these "friends" when Whitney needed someone to talk to and turned to drugs and alcohol instead.? Where were these "friends" when Whitney was trying to get her career back on track and needed industry support? Where were these "friends" when Whitney clearly needed an intervention to get her the help she needed? These people were no friends of Whitney's. They are opportunists who are looking to cash in on her name. Point blank period! EXACTLY what she said!!!!!!

Look trick, you don't know me

Look trick, you don't know me so you need to have a seat. My friend will all dutifully testify on my behalf that i am ALWAYS there when they need a shoulder to lean on. Thats what friends do for one another...friends, not acquaintances. I have dropped everything and jumped on planes and trains for my friends. I have lended money when it was needed. I have baby-sat, and helped nurse one of them back to health after breast cancer treatments. I have even let friends stay with me when they needed a place to sleep. That's what friends DO for one another. Maybe you've never had one...broke-down bitter-ass bitch. Take a seat!

Okay I never really comment,

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.

The role should go to someone

The role should go to someone who can act, all this talk on it being a singer is ridiculous. That shouldn't even be a factor. Whitney was the "voice", so why would they need a singer to re-record her songs. The actress doesn't have to look exactly like Whitney. Angela Bassett looks nothing like Tina Turner, but she did a great job. Diana Ross looks nothingl like Billie Holiday.

*sigh* This role ISN'T about

*sigh* This role ISN'T about SINGING! It's about ACTING! They will most likely use Whitney's voice. It would take YEARS for Amber Riley to get down to Whitney's model-esque size. No one has time to wait for that when there is undiscovered talent out there waiting to be found who is capable of succeeding at this role!

But I do prefer they select

But I do prefer they select someone who can actually sing because that does make the role more convincing. But then again, Angela Basset can't sing and she PERFECTLY EXECUTED the role of Tina Turner.

Meagan Good as Whitney?

Meagan Good as Whitney? LMAO PLEASE! Meagan you're not even a good actress and you can't sing for anything how do you think you can play Whitney?????? People like Meagan need to keep Whitney's name out of their mouths. The woman was just buried for GODS SAKE! I tell you the celebrity world is just one HUGE narcissistic NEST! But if anyone should play Whitney Houston it should be Jennifer Hudson. She has the looks and the voice and the background to really give that role LIFE.

Exactly! Two thumbs up. Megan

Exactly! Two thumbs up. Megan is seeking relevancy by riding the curtails of Whitney's name and using her death to create this "friendship" that I'm sure Whitney was unaware of and is only in Megan's tiny brain. She may have had a few conversations with her in passing and that's about it. She wasn't in attendance at her funeral and I'm certain she didn't get an invite because she would have loved that chance for a photo-op.
