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

Joy Bryant or an unknown...people, open your minds: stars are made EVERY single day: gabbie sidibe, that Nigerian woman on the cover of Vanity Fair recently...new actors/acresses are born every single day. Why does it have to be someone already known?

Hopefully, they will choose a good actress who can lip synch well because we only want to hear Whitney's voice. The actress should also be tall, willowy with a model-type body like Whitney that leaves off dumpy chubby women like Jill.

I LOVE Regina King, and I

I LOVE Regina King, and I happen to think she is one of the most UNDERRATED black actresses out there, buuuuutttt, I just don't think this part is for her because she lacks that natural gracefullness that Whitney had. Not to mention, Whitney was gorgeous, and although I have seen Regina look really nice at times, gorgeous is not a word I would use to describe Regina.

Ok, Did I just read that they

Ok, Did I just read that they should suggest Jill Scott or Tisha Campbell for the role of Whitney??!!?! O_o I'm Done! I luvs me some Jill Scott but like seriously? I'm sure Jill Scott would be sitting somewhere laughing at this idea if she heard it! Even when Whitney was at her biggest....Jill Scott does not come to mind. I think I would die out of pure laughter if Jill Scott was to get down to Whitney's size at her smallest. Sight to see! I honestly believe they would have to find a new actress who can sing. A fresh face. Kelly Rowland would be ok but Whitney was a few shades lighter in complexion. It was actually kinda signature Whitney (Her complexion). Halle Berry (Negative - she is too light of Complexion) Megan Good is too short ( I think Whitney may have entertained her but didn't want to break her heart. She's a whole foot shorter than Whitney) Lark Voorhies would have been ok but I don't think she could sing and she hasn't aged well) Now that I think about I think Zoe Saldana may be an half decent fit. she has the height, the frame, and somewhat of the complexion but she don't have Whitney's spunk....But she could be a contender. As far as celebrities, I don't think there are any other contenders... but only time will tell..

Nothing you said made sense.

Nothing you said made sense. Why does a singer have to play Whitney? Angela Bassett played the hell out of Tina Turner (Academy nomination), and she looks absolutely nothing like her. That movie is still held in high regard. And Angela Basset lip synched to Tina's vocals. I think Meagan would be a good choice; I could see Joy Bryant as well. I rather see a great actress play Whitney, versus someone who can sing. Whitney would a be difficult person to play, she had so many complexities, one minute she was this graceful looking supermodel (Whitney was a model before she was a singer), then she was talking to Diane Sawyer about crack is whack. Let's not forget the reality show with Bobby Brown. The last interview I saw her in, she looked beautiful. So it would have to be an actress with depth. Unless you want sugar coated version of Whitney's life.

It would already be a fail,

It would already be a fail, because megan goode is not a good actress. Monica is the closest to whitney to me then Jennifer hudson or if they want a non singer joy bryant or kerry washington

J.Hud isn't pretty enough.

J.Hud isn't pretty enough. Sorry. Whitney's smile was flawless and face was mere perfection. Jennifer has the voice but they will more than likely use Whitney's voice anyway to create that connection with the audience.
Elle's picture

I totally agree! JHud isn't

I totally agree! JHud isn't pretty enough, and her vocal talent (although, I'm not all that impressed with it) really doesnt matter because they will more than likely use Whitney real voice anyway

WHITNEY WAS DEFINITELY

WHITNEY WAS DEFINITELY OVERRATED AND you people dumb. How can you love someone you dont know more than the people in your life right now? Sickos, celebrity ubsessed
Copfeli's picture

Whitney was definitely not

Whitney was definitely not overrated and if you feel that way I would love to see who you consider to be truly talented and receives the attention that they deserve based off of their sheer talent. Secondly, it would be you people 'are'dumb, not you people dumb...pot calling the kettle right here. And lastly, I'm pretty sure people are just showing their love and admiration for a public figure..that doesn't necessarily mean that they love her more than anyone in their family, etc.

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.

It would be cool if they could find a talented unknown to play Whitney. IF they cast Meagan they might as well let Nene Leakes read for the part too...shit.

oh I guess this movie is

oh I guess this movie is going to be a parody like when Flex made that bad Michael Jackson Movie. ijs. Meagan isnt a very skilled actress, theyre bodytypes arent the same Whitney was 5'10" and Meagan is all of 5' as well as looks are totally off. Maybe Sanaa Lathan

Now you may have something

Now you may have something with the Sanaa suggestion....The only question is could Sanaa bring that sassy appeal that Whitney had as well. Because Sanaa definitly has the beauty, and gracefull demeanor, and most importantly, she can ACT!

You maybe right but she would REALLY have to do work and push the envelope because she suffers from being one-dimensional as well (like Meagan Good).

Personally I think only Halle

Personally I think only Halle Berry possesses the beauty and poise required to play someone like Whitney. With all due respect, Halle has played the drug addict before in Spike Lee's movie, so she has that down, and she has the beauty to play Whitney in her modeling and prime days....so there you have it.
