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

Wow...figure someone would

Wow...figure someone would want them to make a movie about Whitney's life based on gossip and tabloid magazine depiction of Whitney. Many of us would prefer the movie be about Whitney the person and not just about the drugs..SMDH..Halle isn't the one.

I think they should do an

I think they should do an open casting call and pick someone who very much embraces Whitney's essence as well as voice and looks - there are so many talented unknowns who you may be surprise that can pull this off....getting someone we know already may not be the best fit!

This is an epic FAIL waiting

This is an epic FAIL waiting to happen if they allow Meagan Goode to play Whitney!! I like Meagan and all, but this would be WAYYYYYYY out of her lane!!! They need someone tall, with that gracefull swag that Whitney had! Not to mention someone that could bring out that sassy side of Whitney that was funny as HELL!!! I'm not sure who this person is, but is DAYUM sure isnt Meagan!!!! Whitney's persona had so many layers...She was beautiful, graceful, sassy, and enormously gifted in voice...It's gonna take someone extremely versitile to pull that role off!!! Meagan is too one-dimensional!!! And hell no Beyonce ain't it either!!!

You are so right. I never

You are so right. I never realized how complex of a person Whitney really was. On stage she was a very regal and beautiful person. Behind the scence, she seem like she was fragile but strong, tough but very sweet. And one cannot forget her off the cuff sense of humour. Her voice is simply Even worst is, many of us grew up with Whitney and got to see the many sides of this woman. It is going to be hard to bring someone in who many aren't going to critique and say, "HELL TO THE NAH." LOL GOOD LUCK.

Meagan actually spoke about

Meagan actually spoke about the conversation her and Whitney had about making this movie BEFORE Whitney's transition. So if Whitney thought Meagan was good enough to play her, so be it. However, I do think that another actress, maybe an unknown, would be a better choice.

There are only two people

There are only two people worthy of playing Whitney, they are Gina from Martin or Jill Scott. Everyone else is out of the question. Gina can act and sing. And of course Jill Scott is a grea singer too and looks like a younger Whitney.
Gina's picture

Hahahahahahaha! No u DIDN'T

Hahahahahahaha! No u DIDN'T say Gina from Martin!! Lmao...I'm sorry boo boo but Tisha Campbell Martin is NOT for this role. Meagan either though, her acting isnt there yet. She aint no Jamie Foxx in Ray. Honestly, I can't think of anyone so I agree that an unknown is probably best...

I can't think of one actress right now who would do that part justice. Not one. They would have to do a search definitely. Meagan...ut uh. I think Willow Smith could play her as a child....

Is meagan sure she's not

Is meagan sure she's not making this up? I find it hard to believe that of all the great actresses in hollywood, Whitney would select Meagan. Meg is gorgeous but her acting skills are horrendous... There has to be someone better... I just can't think of the right person for this role at the moment.
Oh Lawd...'s picture

Before Whitney died, I

Before Whitney died, I remember reading something where Meagan said that she wanted to play Whitney in a movie and the both of them talked about it. But it didn't appear that anything was in the beginning stages or in development. She might be embellishing a little bit. Furthermore, I do agree with you. She is not a good choice to play Whitney.
Anonymous's picture

P.S. I'm disgusted by all

P.S. I'm disgusted by all these opportunists who are all of sudden "good friends" with Whitney coming from under their rat holes discussing her. I DOUBT very seriously Whitney wanted a D-LIST actress like Meagan Good to play her. Whitney was ALL about the most EXCELLENT and PREMIER. She would want an A-LIST actress portraying her. Someone who actually has POWER and CLOUT at the box office. Hopefully, some Hollywood heavyweights get their hands on this and make the RIGHT decisions b/c if Meagan is lead, it will be STRAIGHT to dvd.

Oh! You knew Ms. Houston

Oh! You knew Ms. Houston well enough to know hunh? That should would want an A-list like she herself was in the Bodyguard, right?

Next Ray Ray the Squeegee Man

Next Ray Ray the Squeegee Man will be giving his two cents on how close he and Whitney were and the special relationship they had. The way this woman's death has been milked for publicity and 30 extra seconds is tragic and depressing.

OH HELL NAH... Some IDIOT had nerve to say Whitney and Golden Brooks looked alike. PLEASE, Golden brooks has monkey features. Whitney has features that even white folks love. How dare you write such garbage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No girl I did not say that

No girl I did not say that they looked alike. I said that they had similar features and body types. Makeup can do wonders hun. Plus its a much better option than Megan. Read the last sentence of your post then come back and tell me who the real IDIOT is.

After reading this online

After reading this online YESTERDAY, I was able to assess how the public feels about this pending DISASTER. NOT good. The feedback has been utter OUTRAGE! I swear before GOD if Meagan "I can't act my one-dimensional ass out of paper bag" is selected to portray the beloved Whitney, there will be EXTREME backlash! We need someone who is tall, statuesque with a model-type figure and who possess the grace, style and eloquence like Whitney and who can actually be convincing in the role as the songbird. KELLY ROWLAND comes to mind for me. She looks similar to Whitney in body-frame and can actually sang OR the producers need to scout the country for a NEWCOMER! PLEASE do NOT tarnish Whitney's legacy with someone like Meagan Goode whose consistent role over the years has been a side-chick. She has absolutely NO DEPTH as an actress. Disgusted.com P.S. Choosing this photo doesn't help her cause either, YBF. I can see what you attempted to do but she is short and semi-thick. She wouldn't BEGAN to be believable as Whitney. Again, we need someone tall, statuesque with a model figure and who can SING!
Elle's picture

Kelly is very beautiful but

Kelly is very beautiful but she looks nothing like Whitney and she can't act or sing to save her life.
now yall know...'s picture

No, she doesn't necessarily

No, she doesn't necessarily "look" like Whitney but she is BUILT like her (tall, slim, brown skin, beautiful smile) and she has some of the same mannerisms. Given the options, she is among the most convincing. And Kelly CAN sing in my opinion. You may think differently. Besides, I think they'll use Whitney's voice no matter who gets the part. They used Tina Turner's voice when Angela Basset portrayed her.

Well stated. This has to be a joke. Really, Meagan Good as Whitney? Wowzers.

If they do make this movie

If they do make this movie they should throw some makeup on Golden Brooks and give her the part. Her facial features and body type remind me of Whitney. Of course Whitney was more beautiful than Golden but they could fix her up.
