Brandy Eyes Portrayal Of Whitney Houston In Biopic?

Though boasting a nearly 30 year career that marched many-a-milestone and influenced multiple generations of fans and wannabes, it’s no secret that the heavily reported highs and lows of a certain Whitney Houston would be eyed as the perfect ingredients for a ‘trials, tragedy, and triumph’ type of film.  And while actress Meagan Good made headlines this time last year for her desire to portray the multioctave songbird in a biographical piece, she may have to wait in line as another ‘The Game’ star is possibly moving into play – Brandy.

As many fans of both divas already know, Miss Norwood has long touted Houston as an idol and influence – obviously helping shape her younger sound.  Now, if imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, B-Rocka is looking to render her appreciation in a new way it seems:

Could you see Brandy playing Whitney in a biopic?

    Love Brandy…. first off…

    Ummm this title is kinda misleading,,,..ohhh TGJ. When did yall start doing this?? LOL….

    And Brandy …I want another album ASAP…lol.

    And to answer your question, I honestly could not see brandy playing Whitney. Sorry. I think Brandy is a good actress (she was the s*** on Moesha) , but I couldn’t see her playing Whit….

  2. earl January 22, 2012

    Brandy glad u love Whitney and all but girl, stay in your lane, just no!

  3. Lax January 22, 2012

    Looking at the picture and remembering
    Double platium with diana ross Brandy
    seems like a shoe in for this, like megan

  4. King Z January 22, 2012


    lol TGJ ben making misleading titles! but i would actually have to disagree this time. they never said she was GOING TO play her, just said she “eyes” or is looking to

  5. Jay1 January 22, 2012

    Earl I ditto that. Why do we need a bio pic for Whitney. Whitney has lived out loud and I think I know all I want to know about her.

  6. RobbieRo January 22, 2012

    Yess my Brandy talents and voice arnt limited!

  7. Sam January 22, 2012

    NO NO NO! I love Brandy…but Whitney has an incredible story that needs to be told with an incredible actress. I don’t want a singer to play Whitney. I want a true actress and for them to lip sync cos NO ONE will ever be able to replicate that voice in it’s prime. Arista has tons of unheard live performances, so it won’t be a problem.

    Also Whitney’s story is not yet finished…a biopic can wait at least another 15-20 years minimum. I’ve already planned the opening and ending scene for Whit’s biopic…it needs time lol!

  8. Tristan January 22, 2012

    @Sam, did you forget Brandy is an actress? Moesha, Thea, Cinderella, etc.

  9. JG January 22, 2012

    yessssss!!!!! That would be a great idea….Shes the only one that can play her forreal..

  10. Sam January 22, 2012

    @TRISTAN I did not. But Brandy is basic as an actress, for Whitney’s story I want a young actress on the level of Anne Hathaway (or better hopefully). I know that Whitney wants her daughter to play her…I hope that doesn’t happen.

  11. JaeRenee January 22, 2012

    I love Brandy. I absolutely adore her and her voice is phenomenal, however, I am not sure how she would do playing a role of such magnitude. I mean this would be big and I just don’t see her pulling this off the way that it would need to be pulled off. But I could be wrong. I mean I flipped tables and kicked chairs when I heard Beyonce was playing Etta James and she did great.

    We’ll see.

  12. NaQu January 22, 2012

    I’d prefer Meagan Good.

  13. Tristan January 23, 2012

    @SAM, Brandy’s a great actress and I’m sure if she’d studied a lot of Whitney interviews and performances, she’d be incredible. Megan Good is who is basic, but I don’t doubt that she’d be able to pull it off.

  14. Almond Joy January 23, 2012

    Trandy is as basic as that cheap ass lacefront she got from Jennifer Hudson’s old stash. She could NEVER be Whitney….. Whitney is oozing legendary greatness while Brandy oozes flop ass turds.

  15. credits January 23, 2012

    HOW COULD YOU GUYS ALL FORGET THAT DEBRA WILSON USED TO PLAY WHITNEY THE BEST ON MADTV???? LOL SHE HAD WHITNEY DOOOOOWWWWNN!!! AND HER VOCALS WERE ON POINT TOO! lol check out the madtv clips of whitney houston on youtube. Debra Wilson is perfect lol.

  16. BrealK January 23, 2012

    Nope. Monica would be the best actress for that role. If a movie is ever made.

  17. LouLou January 23, 2012

    Brandy would be great for the role. Whoever plays the role would be lip syncing so it is about acting. Brandy early 90’s gave me Whitney vibe until she found her own style. Meagan Good is not a great actress and I do not see Monica playing that role. Plus, Whitney loves Brandy. There is a reason why she picked her as Cinderella over the other young stars during that time.

  18. Marcus January 23, 2012

    Vivica Fox wants it go Vivica!

  19. divaonthereal January 23, 2012

    Just a thought/opinion. Michelle Williams of (DC) would be a much better choice and greater protrayl of Whitney Houston all the way down to the voice/sound. If this movie is done, this role should go to non other than Michelle Williams of Destiny Child Group.

  20. Your Point Is January 23, 2012

    I honestly say Kelly Rowland. Call me crazy, but her tone is similar to that of a younger whitney. Ofcourse her vocals aren’t as great as Whit’s but I can see her pulling that role off greatly. Whomever it may be gone have to bring that heat though!

  21. Tyler January 23, 2012

    Lmfaooo I just spit out my juice when I seen the names Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland… Lmfao… They will never play Whitney brandy is perfect and Meagan may just surprise ppl… But Kelly Michelle beyonce lmfao hell no none of they asses can act…

  22. GREG January 23, 2012

    @yourpointis…….. stares blankly at screen after reading that…… *calls usher in to escort you to your seat* you should be banned from making any more comments for a month for posting such foolishness.

    Let’s be muhfukin’ crystal clear up in here.

    I know they have, but lately they’ve been really going in on these titles. LOL

    And it was misleading because the way it read, one would think that a biopic was in the work. Brandy was just talkin out the side of her neck. LOL

  25. TSan January 23, 2012

    If Rihanna get acting chops and work on her accent, she could BE THE ONE TO PULL OFF WHITNEY!

    Rihanna resembles Whitney alot (especially prime Whitney), and she has an eccentric loveable diva factor about like Whitney. They’re both undeniably GORGEOUS and Rihanna may just surprise us all!

    A Whitney Houston biopic may be one of the biggest biopics ever done

  26. Manish-ClassicWhitney-F**-Administrator January 23, 2012

    TSan, you sound really nice, if you rub my n****** I may let you back on Classic Whitney . Make sure when you come back to bring some vaseline

  27. jamie January 23, 2012

    Kelly Rowland would be great: tone and attitude…Kelly would kill this.

  28. KEEP IT ORIGINAL January 23, 2012

    Brandy was made for the role, i couldn’t think of anyone better infact

  29. ck January 23, 2012

    uhm i dont know why everyone thinks it will be such a bad idea ?? I mean its not like she would sing the songs she would just act. And another great thing is Brandy knows Whitney personally so she knows the Whitney we don’t know.

  30. MRDIVABITCH January 23, 2012

    No one can match the power, range and beauty of Whitney’s vocals in her prime.

  31. LR January 23, 2012

    Brandy is too unpretty for this role.

  32. Royalkev January 23, 2012

    I love it , that would be great for The vocal bible to honor the voice. I’d hope that she would give her best performance ever.

  33. Royalty January 23, 2012

    Whitney was too pretty 2 be played by brandy, she was a succesful model before her debut album.

  34. ALLABOUTTRENYCE January 23, 2012

    There is someone who could play the role as an actress AND singer without it being lip-sync! I went to see her in Thriller Live yesterday and she is PHENOMENAL! Then I went to her youtube and I’m just sayin…the girl IS WHITNEY!

  35. Quan January 23, 2012

    While I love Brandy and I know that Whitney is her idol, Im sorry Brandy is not the one. Or maybe she is. If only Monica knew how to act this would be the perfect role. Talk about the voice, attitude, size and looks yes Monica has it down. In case you forgot check out some of Monic clips singing Whitney.

  36. Me January 23, 2012

    I cant think of another artist who can play this role better. And those low life who squeeking about looks, u next of kin to the devil.

  37. Mr.Q January 23, 2012

    Ummm HELLO… Are you forgetting Jennifer Hudson! Loosing all that weight is one of the reasons she can and will do the movie. She can sing her ass off and she has a little attitude to add to the BioPic. If the producers are smart they would enlist JHUD. She is a solid shoe-in. HANDS DOWN

    Check out BET


  38. SAYINSOMETHIN-NICE January 23, 2012

    Brandy would really get INN on this role!!!

  39. Kapyophi January 23, 2012

    mmmm How about none of the above listed! I think they should do a nationwide search. If anyone–I would rather see Paula Patton!

  40. GREG January 23, 2012

    I really would like to see her imitate whitneys personality just for 1 minute…lol

  41. Diane January 23, 2012


  42. hoytchampion January 23, 2012

    I agree with Sam – it’s too soon for a Whitney biopic. Her story is still unfolding, and I’m still hoping that her once awe inspiring voice will resurface to thrill her legions of fans.

  43. Winter January 24, 2012

    Monica would be the best for this role. Not only can she sing as Whitney, she has the look and the body type of Whitney. They both have that smile and the eyes.

  44. @4evermelvin January 26, 2012

    @sam i hope she proves u all wrong with ” The Marriage Counselor”

  45. Whitneyfa. February 5, 2012

    Im a huge whitney fan.i love brandy and all but no sorry dont think this role would fit her. And meagan good cant be serious lol. Maybe they should offer monica the part because im not feeling any of the names mentioned so far. And yes whitney story is still unfolding still the greatest voice of all time wh fan nbl.

  46. Sue February 19, 2012

    Please not Brandy…sorry girl but you wouldn’t be right. Give the role to Jennifer Hudson, not only an academy award winner but the only voice out there that could come close to singing the Diva’s songs.
