Following her  death, reports of a Whitney Houston biopic have become just as speculated as the untimely tragedy itself.

Said to be orchestrated by Houston’s long time friend Clive Davis, the last few weeks have seen the likes of Jennifer Hudson, Meagan Good and Rihanna named as possible contenders for the starring role.

So now we want to know.

Who do you think should play Houston in the movie and more importantly, do you feel the talk of a bio pic has come too soon after her death.

Let us know below…

    rihanna really????? kelly rowland betta get it !

  2. jay February 26, 2012

    kelly rowland

  3. Letsbereal February 26, 2012

    Please please please do not put Rihanna’s name anywhere near Whitney Houston. Please just don’t. Rihanna can not sing. She’s no where near Whitney status. Jennifer Hidson cool but she’ll over due everything. Idk who can do Whitney if not Whitney. :-/

  4. Sleazy February 26, 2012

    Rihanna? Why the fufck don’t you just ask paris hilton

  5. Lisa February 26, 2012

    To soon and not jennnifer Hudson or rihanna good for the role!

  6. Sammi February 26, 2012

    I def do not think Jennifer Hudson should get the role, she looks nothing like or sounds like Whitney. Everytime there is a big biopic everyone goes to her as the go to person. Def not Beyonce! Megan Good is a very poor choice, she does not deserve to play someone as iconic as Whitney. I think they need to do some scouting and find someone new to play Whitney, if she indeed has what it takes. The lady from Madtv Debra Wilson does a dead on Whitney but thats in a comedic sense. I dont think she could pull off a serious Whitney role, but she is hella good as a Whitney impersonator.

  7. ALLABOUTTRENYCE February 26, 2012

    They should pick someone who truly suits the role and stop always picking the same 5 black girls. Find a fresh new actress and singer who can pull it off. I have someone in mind and I hope ppl really really read this because she is a CRAZY vocalist AND actress. TRENYCE from American Idol season 2. She was the first Idol to sing Whitney. Whitney is/was her idol and she has that essence about her. Check out her youtube! She and Jennifer Hudson both got snubbed on that show and a movie like this would work for her! PLEASE SOMEONE FIND THIS GIRL!

  8. Morgan February 26, 2012

    Kelly Rowland

  9. Sammi February 26, 2012

    I think Kelly Rowland would be a good contender to play the role. But will they look for someone who can sing like Whitney too? Those r some big shoes to fill if you ask me.

  10. PersianAliCruz February 26, 2012

    Paula Patton, Joy Byant, Kerry Washington or Rihanna(if she can act) are the best choices .

    Debra Wilson lacks the beauty to actually play Whitney in a real movie…

  11. Jay February 26, 2012

    Halle Berry???? DUR.

  12. PersianAliCruz February 26, 2012

    Whoever plays Whitney will lip-sync. It would be foolish to have anybody sing Whitney’s music…

  13. Voni February 26, 2012

    Kelly hands down!!!

  14. PersianAliCruz February 26, 2012

    Kelly Rowland cant act and Whitney’s story is too juicy for a bad actress…..

  15. David February 26, 2012

    Monica, It could be her breakout role and plus she’s the only one that reminds me of Whitney essence.

  16. ALLABOUTTRENYCE February 26, 2012

    WATCH PLEASE!!!

  17. ALLABOUTTRENYCE February 26, 2012

    she deserves that role!!!!

  18. malcolm February 26, 2012

    They have been working on this idea since before whitney died btw. Either Rihanna, Vivica Fox or jennifer Hudson. THis movie could be as big as What’s Love got to do with it if they got it right!

  19. JohnVidal (RIPWhitney-true great) February 26, 2012

    First of all, I don´t like the idea!
    And then I´ll just prefer if they chose a unknown actress (a real actress, not a singer that tries to be one) or a known one who is not a singer. Cos there´s no way they should redo Whitney´s songs putting there a Beyonce, Rihanna or whatever like if they were a nowadays Whitney, f****** pretty please NO

    And also I´m so tired of hearing that often about Jennifer Hudson like if she were someone like Whitney or something. She almost does not even have a career of her own for f**** sake!!! And she doesn´t have that voice either, I can´t comprehend…

  20. Jaye February 26, 2012

    I think maybe Angela Bassett or Kelly Rowland

  21. PersianAliCruz February 26, 2012

    Trenyce?!?!? Really?? Not with that mug!

  22. PersianAliCruz February 26, 2012

    Angela Bassett and Vivica Fox are too damn old to play Whitney for 99% of the movie…

  23. Mickey Mouse February 26, 2012

    Joy Bryant or Monica they have the height /slim frame and beauty we must not forget Whitney was Beautiful …..it need to be someone with great acting skills ….a new comer would be good to a fresh face…. RIP Whitney

  24. Rlf February 26, 2012

    Debrah Wilson (mad tv)….yes she was making fun of Whitney but she truly had Whitney’s mannerisms and everything else to a T!

  25. ALLABOUTTRENYCE February 26, 2012

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKJWsUVdiKU&feature=related

    And these videos shows that she has improved over time. She OWNS these songs the same way Whitney did! There will never be another Whitney, but she defintely has her tone, size, and stage presence. Clive Davis told her himself that she reminded him of Nippy! PLEASE remember her CLIVE!

    I have seen her live in London recently and she has gotten even better! This role would solidify her as an artist and show her talent to the world the way it should have been on Idol.

  26. pat February 26, 2012

    Zorn saldana. Michelle Williams or Kelly Rowland. Lip synching to Whitneys voice of course

  27. DS February 26, 2012

    Not Jennifer and CERTAINLY not Rihanna!!

  28. XXL February 26, 2012

    I think Alexandra Burke would be fantastic… also she was offered main role in bodyguard musical

  29. pat February 26, 2012

    *zoe

  30. kimberly February 26, 2012

    Rihanna with her accentis a huge no. Jennefer hudson or halle berry or whoever has the acting experience.

  31. KAKA February 26, 2012

    I have faith in Kelly rowland Even thought she isn’t the best actress I know, Whitney impacted so much her life that it is going to show if she get the role ! she is far from behing a bad actress and just like her singing skills she will improve it !

  32. Sam February 26, 2012

    NO! I want an unknown ACTRESS. Not a singer who acts. She can lip-sync to Whitney’s voice, because no one replicate it. The girl who plays it is going to need major acting chops for the dramatic scenes…I can’t stand bad, fake, crying with no tears. I want this to be a Hollywood blockbuster not some cheesy lifetime movie. No offence Fantasia!

  33. kitteneyez2011 February 26, 2012

    It’s definitely too soon but I think
    1.Kelly Rowland
    2.Monica

    3.Brandy

    Any 1 of these ladies will be PERFECT especially since they knew her personally 🙂

  34. No not one February 26, 2012

    No body named . Find a complete stranger just like the dude who played Michael Jackson . We don’t need a bio pic now a days , just go on the. Internet and find everything you need

  35. ALLABOUTTRENYCE February 26, 2012

    There are people out there that can do both if ppl would allow it.

    Angela Bassett just looking as she did every day would not be “seen” as Tina, but with makeup, wigs, etc. you can turn someone into whatever/whomever then it is up to that person to bring the essence and spirit of the icon alive.

    Trenyce is gorgeous…even more gorgeous in person! Time has passed and she has grown past Idol into her own persona, not to mention she is
    A REAL actress who can dig deep and go there with the acting AND would NOT have to lip sync.

    I HOPE she at least gets a call. That is my prayer. She deserves it!

  36. H-Town Chic February 26, 2012

    Monica but l’m not sure if she can act but I don’t think NO ONE should attempt to sing her songs in the movie, they straight up lip sing. So maybe Kerry Washington or even her friend Vivica Fox and I’m sorry Kelly Rowland can’t act.

  37. Aishaaguilerakeys February 26, 2012

    SERIOUSLY? Rihanna? I’m more for J Hud, but I think it’s a little too early for a biopic.

  38. Grammy dammy sammy February 26, 2012

    I think it should go to an unknown actress through audition process but the issue are there many people out there with a voice like Whitney’s? Her voice was very integral to her entity. She wasnt just a yodeller. Est. acts cant pull off what she does. Maybe it’s best they just dub her voice on the records and have the actress focus on ACTING. Its equivalent to using stunt doubles.

  39. Michelle Willams February 26, 2012

    Michelle Williams IS the perfect person to do it, she looks like Whtiney so damn much and she’s the best singer turned into actress you could choose !

  40. Grammy dammy sammy February 26, 2012

    Rihanna? Is that a joke? Pls we want Whitney to be portrayed mainly as “The Voice” not haywired crack addict. Anyone who suggested rihanna should be slapped. She may be black but she doesnt embody an ounce of Nippy’s essence

  41. MuzikJunkie! February 26, 2012

    I think Michelle Williams should play Whitney, but whoever plays Whitney will indeed have to lip sync!

  42. Robert February 26, 2012

    Why bring beyonce up? She looks nothing like her.

    I say Megan Good is a good choice for now… She has the look and talent.

    But no matter who plays it… They need to do a Selena, Tina Turner, Temptations, etc… and use her voice. Even if the actress is a singer with vocal ability. They need to lip it to whitney’s voice. Whitney’s music is a gift from God and no one should replace her voice for a movie. Her voice is too good for that.

  43. Mari (RIP Dwayne McDuffie + Amy Winehouse +Whitney Houston) February 26, 2012

    Meagan Goode.

    The actress that gets the role does not have to be a singer. Rihanna’s too light for the part, and I’m not here for any “Blackface Bey” shenanigans. Anyone who’s seen “Eve’s Bayou” knows that Meagan has chops, and the only thing holding her back from Emma Stone, Meagan Fox status is her skin color and the fact that marquee parts for black actresses are too few and far between.This is the type of opportunity, that if done well, and with the right backing, could do for Meagan’s career what Star Trek and Avatar did for Zoe Saldana.

  44. Mari (RIP Dwayne McDuffie + Amy Winehouse +Whitney Houston) February 26, 2012

    “I say Megan Good is a good choice for now… She has the look and talent. ”

    @Robert

    Amen Robert, Amen!

  45. Oh Word?! February 26, 2012

    They were talking about making a biopic before she passed so its def not too early. . . But i dont think another singer should sing Whitney’s songs let alone play her in a movie, are u serious?
    Paula Patton! or Gabrielle Union would be great for this role

  46. BrandyLoveInfinity February 26, 2012

    BRandy CAN act and CAN Sing. and thats HER idol.- She would do her Proud.
    Watch what she says.. and this was a little while before she passed away.

  47. Grammy dammy sammy February 26, 2012

    Lol vivica a fox is too old to play whitney. Halle still has the looks but its about time a new black actress shone thru. Always d same ppl. Having rihana play Whitney is a spit on her legacy. Rihanna would be more suited to playin Madonna. Whitney is just too great a singer to be portrayed by someone like ri

  48. Sasha February 26, 2012

    This is way too early…..

  49. MissImpartial February 26, 2012

    @JOHNVIDAL (RIPWHITNEY-TRUE GREAT)
    YOU’RE RIGHT!!!!! As for Jennifer Hudson her voice is not even close to that of Whitney’s. She doesn’t have the nice tone that Whitney has no one has her voice. As for JHud don’t even like her voice.

  50. Mari (RIP Dwayne McDuffie + Amy Winehouse +Whitney Houston) February 26, 2012

    “Whitney is just too great a singer to be portrayed by someone like ri”

    @Grammy Dammy Sammy

    Singing has nothing to do with it. The actress that gets the part doesn’t have to sing. Marion Cotillard won the best actress oscar in 2007 or 2008 for playing French singer Edith Piaf, and Marion didn’t do any singing.

    Rihanna shouldn’t get the part because she doesn’t have the look. Mark my words, a lot of people are going to be surprised this summer when Battleship comes out because Rihanna’s gonna hold her own. Based on what I’ve seen in her SNL sketch “Ronnie and Clyde” and videos like WFL and Man Down, Rihanna can act.

  51. MISHKA February 26, 2012

    TGJ,

    I would have appreciated you mentionned that I GAVE YOU THIS IDEA ON LEONA LEWIS POSTS.

    Hmmmmm.

  52. WhitneyTheGreatest February 26, 2012

    Meagan Good…..really? I love Rihanna but her accent would kill the whole movie. Alexandra Burke, Ms. Kelly Rowland, and Brandy are the real choices here.

  53. bekha February 26, 2012

    nia long…she can act and she some what look like whitney or maybe paula paton…..no 2 beyonce,rihanna,jhud, monica

  54. CHRISTYN February 26, 2012

    I don’t think we need a Whitney biopic. I hate biopics.

  55. Grammy dammy sammy February 26, 2012

    @Mari

    U dont understand my point. 1st i’d prefer the role went to newcomer by free n fair audition but it if it had to be player by singer it shouldnt be one whose has been more criticised than acclaimed for her vocal skills. When u think Whitney u think. VOICE VOCALS DIVA PERFORMER. with a newcomer even if she cant sing, it can be masked easily. We know rihanna cant sing, its hard to see past that. As for her acting skills, well the jury is still out on that. We’ll wait till battleship drops.

  56. Grammy dammy sammy February 26, 2012

    * excuse the typos

  57. Chuh February 26, 2012

    WTF!! What is your obsession with Rihanna. Nobody has ever mentioned her, she is not even fit to be put in the same sentence as Whitney Houston. And also I hope J-Hud doesn’t do it, as much as people think she’s good she ain’t got s*** on Whitney. The only thing J-Hud does is wait by her phone for a tribute to sing and at that she was s*** for Whitneys tribute. Hell, who’s idea was that. We all know the only other person who can sing I Will Always Love You is Leona Lewis and that’s fact!! If you’re looking for a similarities best bet would be Meagan Good, Brandy or Jada Smith. But daaamn Debra Wilson from MadTV has it down. She can do Whitney like nobody else. We all know it was jokes but Debra loved Whitney and she can do Whitney like it’s nobodys business!!

  58. PrettyYoungThing February 26, 2012

    Alexandra Burke would be great

  59. Miguel February 26, 2012

    This story doesn’t sound real AT ALL

    Especially the mention of it being orchestrated by Clive Davis… so she just passed and first thing he’s planning and thinking of is her bio pic? I don’t think so.

  60. G4L February 26, 2012

    and not only who sings like her its who can embody her……rihanna got the look, acting skills (mandown/russian vid) and she know her personally.

  61. G4L February 26, 2012

    duh this false story …..sam just want a stan war, its one of those slow days lol

  62. Paula Patton of course February 26, 2012

    I think its too soon, but if they should go with someone I think paula patton would be nice…not Rihanna…Whitney does not have a bajan accent…

    Whoever plays Whitney will lip-sync. It would be foolish to have anybody sing Whitney’s music…
    _________________________

    THIS!!!! Thank you!…..Ppl on here are just stupid….anybody who gets the role will lip sync bcuz NOBODY is foolish enuff to try nd sing it themselves…that would be tragic for any1

  64. Oh Word?! February 26, 2012

    I forgot about EVE!
    she could def pull this off.
    She’s hood and she can act and with the right makeup she would look like Whitney

  65. G4L February 26, 2012

    its call acting rihanna knows how to turn off her accent

  66. zania February 26, 2012

    The reason why it has to be Rihanna, because she is small like Whitney, Jennifer husdon is big even with her weight loss. Do you remember how skinny whitney was in her younger years, I can’t even imagine Jennifer Hudson getting that small without looking like she is on the pipe or sick.

  67. ree February 26, 2012

    rihanna or brandy

  70. ree February 26, 2012

    RIHANNA BRANDY OR MONICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  71. Those That Cannot Do, Stan February 26, 2012

    Okay NO to any of those options, Jennifer doesn’t look enough like her, Rihanna could not sing a Whitney Houston song plus she’s too light and Megan…

    I just don’t know if she could handle it. This would be a huge role, the kind that either makes you or breaks you. She’d have to REALLY do an amazing job at a multi-faceted role. Considering the super highs and sad lows of Whitney’s career/life it would take a lot to do her justice.

    Man…sad we even gotta think about it.

  72. ree February 26, 2012

    WHITNEY IS BROWN SKINNED GIVE IT TO BRANDY

  83. BooBooKittyFuvk February 26, 2012

    Leona Lewis

  84. TyTy February 26, 2012

    Zoe Saldana hands down. It definitely shouldn’t be a singer.

  85. streetsymphony February 26, 2012

    Michelle Williams of Destiny’s Child……lands the role hands down!!!

  86. xedos February 26, 2012

    they need someone unknown and why so early her body hasn’t even turn in fossil fuel as yet

  87. @THE_MALEMADONNA February 26, 2012

    MONICA ALL THE WAY!!

  88. LTM February 26, 2012

    you guys are acting like the person will be singing her songs. they will all be lip synced, that im sure of. that being said Kelly Rowland is invalid. J Hud doesnt have the look, and Rihanna is a no. I love Vivica Fox, but I hink shes too old. same with Halle Berry and Jada Picket. Keke Palmer is my choice, shes a talented young black actress and its her time to shine

  89. RATEDX( LEGENDS ARE BORN NOT BOUGHT) February 26, 2012

    lol…….some people are so pressed over rihannna…did she f***** ur man or something damn…..

    if they make a whitney houston movie, they have to show everything…not just her singing voice…they have to show the real whitney,

    it would take a great actress to pull it off,,,,Ive never seen jennifer hudson as a great actress, her singing voice annoys the f**** out of me…

    rihanna, ive never seen her act, so i wouldnt know…

    meagan good, seen her act, shes ok….

    beyonce cannot act for s***, her singing voice is average at best..best believe shes goin to try her best to get the role..u know she hates not having her name on everything..attention w**** at best…

    brandy would be th best choice..brandy is a great actress, and her voice sounds like an angel, she can pull it off…and whitney is a real idol….

  91. Songscribe February 26, 2012

    My choices in this order.
    1.Brandy!!! She can do thisssss!!!. It just feels right for her to do tht. She a good actress and an amazing singer, i think she could pull it off well.
    2.Eve E,,,she looks just like Whitney and is hood too. She can pull it.

    3.Rihanna,,,She has tht wild chxcter tht somehow resemble Whitney in her early days and she can act. I think with ri it would look natural despite the accent.

    SN: stop this hatred against rihanna please!!! Some wil rot in hell coz of tht

  92. tater February 26, 2012

    Kelendria Trene Rowland better get this damn role 😉

  93. K ANDB4EVER February 26, 2012

    First off when you do a movie about someones life you have to look like them. Make-up is not going to do everything. This could be Kelly Rowland break out role.. It dont matter if she can or can act thats what acting class is for. You can just do someones life and not look at all there movies and performence… Kelly has the look, body and she’s tall to pull the look off. Yall mite not like it but over all, Kelly would be the best choice…..second choice will be Brandy if kelly is to busy…

    P.s Rihanna is a big no, first off she is to light and thats a biggie..
    Beyonce is way to light skin and it just dont fit…
    J hud looks nothing like her with that little body and big head..
    Monica is tall but she never really had a shape and again she is to light..
    Meagan Good no way, she dont song and looks nothing like Whitney.. she needs to no more about music..
    Paula Patton yall wrong for that cause she is dame near white how can she do a Whitney…
    Gabrielle Union she is a good actor but not for Whitney’s life..
    Alexandra Burke girl naw lol…
    Michelle Williams can do it….she’s tall young looking at times and right color
    Vivica a fox thats f’ed up whoever said her name… just wrong
    Halle berry can do it but she is way to short and old, make-up isnt going to make a 45yr look 19. she would not be able to play the younger Whitney…
    Angela Bassett is just to old now really…
    Brandy would be good to…

  94. Lola February 26, 2012

    Kelly Rowland Or Brandy. I Say No To Rihanna.. That’s An Insult!!!!!!!

  95. K ANDB4EVER February 26, 2012

    1. Rihanna- is a big no, first off she is to light and thats a biggie..
    2. Beyonce- is way to light skin and it just dont fit…
    3. J hud- looks nothing like her with that little body and big head..
    4. Monica- is tall but she never really had a shape and again she is to light..
    5. Meagan- Good no way, she dont song and looks nothing like Whitney.. she needs to no more about music..
    6. Paula Patton- yall wrong for that cause she is dame near white how can she do a Whitney…
    7. Gabrielle Union -she is a good actor but not for Whitney’s life..
    8. Alexandra Burke- girl naw lol…
    9. Michelle Williams- can do it….she’s tall young looking at times and right color
    10. Vivica a fox- thats f’ed up whoever said her name… just wrong
    11. Halle berry- can do it but she is way to short and old, make-up isnt going to make a 45yr look 19. she would not be able to play the younger Whitney…
    12. Angela Bassett- is just to old now really…
    13. Brandy- would be good to…
    14. Kelly rowland will be the best choice… the body, hair, skin color, tall and that was her fav singing…

  96. jasmine February 26, 2012

    NOBODY, because nobody in the music or movie industry looks or sound similar to Whitney….how about they find a new actress and give her a shot at it !

  97. JAY February 26, 2012

    Some of these choices people are throwing out there sound ridiculous!

    Kelly Rowland or Megan Goode? Please!

    There is no one capable of playing Whitney Houston. No one can even come close to sounding or looking like her and no one would look believable lipsyncing.

    Any biopic they have in mind for Whitney Houston should happen decades from now anyway.

  98. Songscribe February 26, 2012

    Branddddyyyyy!!! She should get this role. Whitney would turn in her grave if brandy is chosen for this role.

  99. Royalkev February 26, 2012

    I think Rihanna and JHud would be horrible choices for the role of Whitney Houston. That’s just ridiculous. I am sure that Brandy may surprise me and although I love her, she’s not a good selection either. I wish she was! Monica and Kelly Rowland would simply make people feel that their watching the life story of Monica and Kelly Rowland. I don’t think that would come across well. I might have to go with Sanaa Lathan(ofcourse she would have to slim down), but I think there’s potential with her. If Cynthia Bailey (from the Atlanta Housewives) was a serious actress she would have this on lock! I think Whitney’s biopic needs to be handled properly, so it’s most likely that it should be given to an unknown actress to portray her.

    ^^^I meant that Whitney would turn in her grave with excitement if Brandy is chosen for this role.

  101. Dunno February 26, 2012

    What about Vivian Green? She has the beautiful, soft face.

  102. hasaan Fitzgerald February 26, 2012

    I’ve said this since Whitney passed, that Wendy Raquel Robinson should play Whitney in a biopic. She has the grace and class to pull it off… Say what you want but Wendy Raquel Robinson should play Whitney Houston

  103. Man-TAK-eee February 26, 2012

    Paula Patton hands down. You dont need a singer – no one sounds like Whitney anyway… you need an actress. Music can be dubbed, lip synced – acting cant. Paula all the way – they are the same height and body structure and she can act. I like the producers who did the movie “Ray” with Jamie Foxx do do the biopic on whitney. If done right… this could be a oscar nom flick. If done wrong you do s*** like Clive Davis – just for the buck. Wish he stop promoting that fat f*** Jhud. She’s average actress at best – and she’s FAT, looks nothing like whitney at all and certainly far from sounding like her. This smells like a trainwreck D-listed flick. Ughhh!!!

  104. danny b February 26, 2012

    They should have an unknown/new actress play the part, a la The Temptations biopic, the Jacksons biopic & Notorious. But this is a little different. Because Whitney was such a well-known, unique, un-replicated iconic figure and voice, any other famous artist/actress will have a hard time convincing audiences of that “Whitney” connection/character, since NO ONE, and i absolutely mean NO ONE can do, duplicate, look or sound like Whitney even to the slightest degree. I dont care how many Jennifer Hudsons or Monicas can cover her. She is the epitome of ONE OF A KIND a la Michael Jackson. Therefore, they should someone UNKNOWN who resembles convincingly enough in looks and mannerisms and atttude, and have her just lip-sync all of the singing involved.

  105. danny b February 26, 2012

    @MAN-TAK-EEE

    I do agree, Paula Patton would be an excellent choice.

  106. K ANDB4EVER February 26, 2012

    @Jasmine somebody should play her cause for one she payed the way so its well earned….and second you dont have to sound like the person cause in the movie the person going to be lipsyncing..

    @Jay yea i said Kelly Rowland and yes she do look like her with the right wig and make-up she would be the best choice… she dont have to sound like her cause she’s going to be lipsyncing… but yea you are right some of these choices people are throwing out there sound ridiculous! like Megan Goode, Vivica a fox, Paula Patton, Monica, Rihanna…

  107. Jenjenlova February 26, 2012

    Just saying but Jennifer Hudsons idol is Whitney. It would be a very emotional and powerful role for her. Though with that, I think it is a bit early for s biopic. She did just pass away, leave some time to mourn. But whenever the biopic does happen I want jHud. She came into hollywood as an actress, though a singer, I’m not including AI. But that’s just my opinion I just don’t want Rihsnnz at all,

  108. K ANDB4EVER February 26, 2012

    WISH PEOPLE WOULD STOP SAYING “Paula Patton” BECAUSE FIRST OFF SHE IS WAS TO LIGHT SKIN……

  109. Chris February 26, 2012

    Honestly, on appearance alone, with the right hair and makeup…Eve could definitely look similar to Whitney, and she shines with confidence that Whitney did. Her acting however, I am not sure, and she would most likely have to lip-sync.

    However, Kelly Rowland I think could play a Fantastic Whitney. She has a similar look, has a voice that with the right vocal acrobatics can somewhat sound just like Ms. Houston.

    I just think when it comes down to it, they should take a lot of time to think this over, like a fine wine, needs time to be just perfect.

    @JENJENLOVA WHITNEY WAS KELLY ROWLAND IDOL TO AND IT WAS BEFORE J-HUD.. KELLY HAS ALWAYS SAID THAT SINCE DESTINY’S CHILD DAYS… KELLY SUNG A WHITNEY SONG TO BEYONCE DAD TO AUDITION TO BE IN DESTINY’S CHILD SO I THINK IT WILL BE AN EMOTIONAL AND POWERFUL ROLE FOR HER AND IT COULD VERY WELL BE HER BREAKOUT ROLE….

    P.S NO LIGHT SKIN PEOPLE CAN PLAY HER…. GET A BRAIN

  112. K ANDB4EVER February 26, 2012

    @ CHRIS I AGREE

  113. Dev February 26, 2012

    Some people on this blogs music knowledge is limited, all of these choices are dire. Rihanna! Really??? Jennifer Hudson, Brandy, Kelly Rowland? are you guys nuts? You’re just picking your favourite singers. Go back, watch waiting, bodyguard and then think again. I personally don’t have a choice but it wouldn’t be any i have read so far.. and maybe too soon.
    I think that Kim Fields could play her character in the second part of Waiting to Exhale

  114. danny b February 26, 2012

    @K ANDB4EVER

    And Kelly Rowland is a perfect choice?? Cuz aint no way in hell Whitney was as chocolate as Kelly. But furthermore, dont make color an issue!!! That’s what makeup and lighting are for. So you discrediting Paula as a candiate because she is “too light-skin” is the most c***-tastic Uncle Tom comment anyone could say.

  115. danny b February 26, 2012

    And just because someone is someone’s idol does not make that qualified to play the role of their idol. So stop that BULLSHYT! You think Brandy could really pull off playing Whitney ??? Then shyt, might as well let Justin Bieber play Usher in his biopic…….

  116. BrandyLoveInfinity February 26, 2012

    BRandy would own this ROLE hands Down.- and YES Whitney Would be Proud of her Playng the Role. OF all the other Celebs that Whitney connected with. BRANDY had a SPECIAL Connection to Her. SHE PICKED brandy to be in CINDERALLA, Shes Supported Her on DWTS, She Given Brandy Advice and has been in Touch wid Brandy Regularly- She gave her a Special Note a few days before her PAssing, and THIS IS BRANDYS Idol. –

    Whitney Would be Proud.

  117. Shonda February 26, 2012

    Clive better not milk Whitney’s memory for every dime he can get that will be sad. It’s definitely too soon but I think

    1.Kelly Rowland – She looks like her and has her grace all she’d need to do is lose all this extra muscle she put on thanks to Jeanette Jenkins (she stay pushing them Angela Basset & Jada shoulders turning women into muscle men).
    3.Brandy – Whit story of wanting to appear perfect but feeling insecure if Bran all over. I believe Whit once saw in Brandy what she the daughter of Whitney would look & sound and carry herself like (before Bobbi Kris).
    2.Letoya Luckett – Out there but look at her shes more Whit than Kelly is.
    3.Monica – They were so close and Monica has developed the was Whit did good girl to turbulent star to now a singer so firmly grounded in faith without being Gospel.

    Lets face it. If Clive is behind it it will be who he can bank money on as well and therefore you all can look to see J Hud on your screens ready to win Oscar #2.
    4. Jennifer Hudson

    5. Syesha (Macado?) – Listen to this girls voice she light but she could pass.

    Lastly. I will F Clive up if he letsHalle, Rihanna or Beyonce anywhere near that set.

  118. MaZ February 26, 2012

    No one can replace her in front of a MIC or CAMERA!

  119. Bobby February 26, 2012

    Mariah Carey not only could she sing the songs perfectly but I always thought their Images were very alike. Yeah Mariah has lighter skin but that can be taken care of with a great make-up artist see “The Emancipation Of Mimi” cover. Plus Mariah & Whitney really were good friends so it be great to have someone with The Voice that knew Whintey.

  120. COOKIE – DIVAS – TONI BRAXTON, RIHANNA February 26, 2012

    Meagan Good?????????? What an insult!! The most qualified for the job is none other than Rihanna.

  121. Paulapattonofcourse February 26, 2012

    Thats why there is a such thing as tanning salons and makeup….to be real…Paula Patton look more like Whitney than anybody else listed…especially they have similar smiles

  122. K ANDB4EVER February 26, 2012

    @DANNY B GET YOUR FACTS STAIGHT, IM NOT PICKING KELLY BECAUSE I LIKE HER… I SAID SHE HAS THE BODY, SHE’S TALL LIKE WHITNEY AND THE RIGHT HAIR AND MAKE-UP SHE WILL LOOK LIKE WHITNEY AND HELL YEA I CAN SEE BRANDY PLAYING HER TO.

    AND AT THE END OF THE DAY COLOR IS AND ISSUE WHEN IT COMES TO PLAYING SOMEONES LIFE BUT NOT IN A BACK WAY SO THE COMMENT IS STILL STANDING… I LIKE PAULA BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY SHE ID TO LIGHT TO PLAY A WHITNEY… KELLY MAKRUP GOT LIGHTER OVER THE YEARS AND NOW SHE CAN VERY WELL PULL OFF WHITNEY SO DONT SAY SHE’S TO DARK….

  123. Olly Murrs February 26, 2012

    If were are talking actors then Naomi Harris could do something. But lets just remember. Whitney stormed the Bodyguard role with no experience simply because she knew that role but with waiting and preachers wife she showed her ass as a credible actor. This is a major role and who ever plays it needs to do a serious Jamie Foxx – Ray Charles engulf yourself in the character and method acting type thing. To play this role poorly is to do and Icon an injustice and Whitney deserves an Oscar winning story of her life. I just want them to take their time to honour her memory and her family, hopefully they’ll tell her story beautifully because I think her story could help not only celebrities suffering the same insecurities but the general public.

  124. Matthew Charlery-Smith February 26, 2012

    Surprised that SO MANY are mentioning Kelly Rowland but this only goes to prove what I’ve always believed. No singer blends tonal beauty with power as well as Kelly and that’s what Whitney was renowned for. As far as appearances go, Kelly looks a lot more like Donna Summer than Whitney. I can’t see Kelly wearing the hairstyle Whitney wore during the I’m Your Baby Tonight era. Maybe Kelly could play Whitney in a series but I think for the film they may need to cast an unknown with Whitney’s look and at least her vocal tone. Finding someone with Whitney’s beauty, figure, vocal range, power, tone, control and even hair type is going to be tricky! But we’ll see. All things considered however, Kelly is the closest!

  125. K ANDB4EVER February 26, 2012

    SORRY MEANT NOT IN A BAD WAY…. AND YEA THEY HAVE TANNING AND MAKEUP BUT IT WILL HAVE TO BE A LOT OF MAKUP TO GET PAULA CLOSE TO WHITNEY’S BROWN SKIN..

    MICHELLE WILLIAMS!!

    You have to consider a lot of different factors.
    Body, face, figure, stature, mannerisms, musical style, upbringing.

    Michelle and Whitney share a lot. They are very tiny, their complexion is similar. They have to be around the same height. I mean, she is perfect for the role. Plus, they sound similar, as in their speaking voice. Very raspy; and I’m sure Michelle could talk a little deeper to emulate Whitney’s voice. They both grew up in a church and if anyone knows gospel, it’s Michelle.

    I think she would make an awesome Whitney, especially since she has known her for awhile, and we allllllll know Michelle can tear the roof off of a church.

  128. richnblack11(just like bey) February 26, 2012

    Before Whitney died she wanted Megan Good to play her.

  129. MICHELLE WILLIAMS AS WHITNEY HOUSTON February 26, 2012

  132. Parris Black February 26, 2012

    If Rihanna, Beyonce, or J. HUD play Whitney Houston I think it’s safe 2 say there will be a whole lot of people not seeing that bum s***. The obvious only 3 contenders are Kelly Rowland, Brandy, n Monica. Choosing anyone else would be a disaster n totally disrespectful 2 her memory

  133. PersianAliCruz February 26, 2012

    Choosing Brandy or Jennifer Hudson would be a disaster n totally disrespectful 2 her memory………….

    They need to find somebody who looks like Whitney and has her mannerisms…

    Joy Bryant and Paula Patton are the best ones for the role….

  135. Joan February 26, 2012

    Good Evening:
    Kelly Rowland for sure. She would be the perfect person for that role. and they know this. Give it to her.

  136. Jasmine February 26, 2012

    I think they should give somebody kind of new the role like Keke Palmer. Maybe even have a young Whitney and an old Whitney. I could see Keke Palmer as a young Whitney and Vivica Fox or Tamala Jones as an older Whitney.

    Definitely not Jennifer Hudson, Rihanna, or Kelly Rowland. Kelly does not have the commercial appeal, Jennifer could not another role but not this one, and Rihanna would not be able to deliver the script well with her annoying voice/accent.

  137. Always love you, Whitney (RIP) February 26, 2012

    First of all I like rihanna as an artist but she SHOULD NOT play whitney. She hasn’t any class as Whitney first of all and singing is nothing like whitneys neither are her looks. Megan good? Uhhh no. I guess Debra wilson probably. She did it on mad tv and played whitney to the T. Of course it was a parody but no one else is really like her that I can think of…..Jennifer hudson? No. Her voice is too strong.

  138. Remixer2012 February 26, 2012

    Halle Berry would be great

  139. credits February 26, 2012

    It’s not that jennifer hudson’s voice is too strong because whitney’s voice was strong too. Jennifer Hudson’s voice is just too husky.

  140. Oh please!!!!!!!!! February 26, 2012

    “richnblack11(just like bey)
    Before Whitney died she wanted Megan Good to play her.”

    And Megan sure made that known. People need to stop trying to capitalise on this woman. She gave some much of herself she lost herself and these vultures just wont stop circling.

    Michelle Williams sounds good as well but she is not (dare I say it) pretty enough. Hate to say it but Whitney had that rare captivating beauty that transcended societies ideas of beauty. You need someone that can emphasise this as it is a very strong part of her story.

  141. Winter February 26, 2012

    1. Monica
    2. Paula Patton
    3.Kelly Rowland.

    Please see that this info gets to Clive. NOT Jennifer H. she has no personality and does not have to look to play Whitney, altough Jennifer is beautiful in her own right, she just does not have the Whitney look.

  142. Oh please!!!!!!!!! February 26, 2012

    Ps . Can we keep talking (constructively) about this because it hurt to see dumb stupid topics like Rita Ora vs Rihanna and Chris & Rihanna on the most discussed list —————————————————————————————————————>

  143. Joshua February 26, 2012

    Kimberly elise (tt from set it off)

  144. Collegegirl February 26, 2012

    Kelly Rowland would be the perfect choice. She has the beauty, the body and she has acting experience and she can always do intensive vocal training. Letoya Lucket also can do it but she is not popular enough. As for Brandy and Monica. Monica has the body type shaped like Whitney but playing her would not be believeable. Brandy is a great singer but she doesn’t have Whitney’s beauty.

  145. Malaysia Gipson February 26, 2012

  146. millhouse February 26, 2012

    why are yall naming a whole bunch of old b****** to play Whitney??? Clearly they need someone in their early twenties to play whitney. They can play her from young to old. It is easier to make a youngr person look more mature then it is to have an old fart turn into a young swan…

    #1 CHOICE IS…………

    KEKE PALMER
    KEKE PALMER
    KEKE PALMER
    KEKE PALMER
    KEKE PALMER
    KEKE PALMER

    #2…. TATIANA ALI

    KEKE is pretty, she can act…. and with good make up she can look just like whitney!!!

    maybe Zoe Saldana too…. MAybe!!!

  147. millhouse February 26, 2012

    KEKE deserves the role out of anyone… AND this could mean Oscar for her too… She is a waaaaay better actress then Megan Good…. and she is the only girl out of everyone that has the right complexion…. KEKE and WHITNEY have the same eyes 🙂

  148. millhouse February 26, 2012

    PLEASE STOP NAMING PEOPLE OVER 30YO TO PLAY WHITNEY!!!

  149. millhouse February 26, 2012

    Tika Sumpter might have a good show too

  150. BrealK February 26, 2012

    Rihanna has resembled Whitney as of late in many of her pictures. Plus she seems to have some of her mannerisms, with a lot of studying she could probably pull it off. But to play the part she would have to lose her accent.

    Now Monica or Brandy would really do the role justice. Especially Monica when it comes to mimicking Whitney when it comes to singing.

  151. K ANDB4EVER February 26, 2012

    I agree with @COLLEGEGIRL

    Kelly mite be 31 but she still looks young and with short hair she looks like she did when she was singing with Nelly…. Kelly would be the be choice hands down….

  152. Diane February 26, 2012

    NOT JENNIFER HUDSON!!!! YOU CAN DRESS HER UP AND WALK HER DOWN THE RED CARPET WITH CLIVE AND SHE WILL NEVA BE A WHITNEY HOUSTON!

    MEAGAN GOOD HAS ACTING CHOPS!!! IF SHE PUT HER ALL IN THE ROLE, I BELIEVE SHE CAN CAPTURE THE ESSENCE OF WHITNEY HOUSTON’S LIFE.

    DON’T YOU HAVE TO HAVE A SCREEN SCRIPT BEFORE A MOVIE IS MADE? IT WILL ONLY BE A 2-HOUR MOVIE, SO WHAT WILL THEY FOCUS ON MORE?

    I THINK IT SHOULD BE A 4-HOUR CABLE MOVIE BECAUSE 2-HOURS IS TOO SHORT TO TELL WHITNEY’S STORY.

  153. Diane February 26, 2012

    A 2-PART CABLE MOVIE IS NECESSARY TO TELL WHITNEY’S STORY JUST LIKE THE LUCILLE BALL STORY. THE ACTRESS THAT PLAYED LUCILLE BALL KILLED IT!

  154. Songscribe February 26, 2012

    Kelly Rowland has Manly arms!!!, i noticed that recently and i don’t like it. She should stop lifting weights! I still love her though.

  156. NICK February 26, 2012

    I know there is some talent out there, we just need to find it. There is a rising beautiful star that has not been found yet, that is who we need. Having already known singers do it, just take away from what we want to see. Kelly Rowland maybe the ONLY 1 that can actually do it, BUT I want someone we do not know that it makes it a lot easier to really focus on the BIO & not so much ohhh did this artist do it justice, etc…

  157. Kim February 26, 2012

    No one should have the role because they shouldn’t be making a movie about her in the first place. The poor woman is not even cold yet and everyone is trying to cash in on her. Just let her rest in peace. This is very insensitive and disrespectful to the family especially her poor mother and daughter who are still probably in shock and devastated about her death and already someones planning to make a movie about her. Disgusting.

  158. GREG February 26, 2012

    The only person i see in this role is Brandy, but knowing how Clive has been shoving Jennifer Hudson down our throats lately, she will likely get the part.

  159. angela wesley February 26, 2012

    !. Kelly Rowland because she is tal and slunder like Whitney. She did a
    very impressive perormance of a Whitney Houston at the Mudummad i
    Ali Lee Gala. Brandy can act and sing so she would be my second
    choice. Monica and Tamar Braxton would be good choices too.

    MICHELLE WILLIAMS HANDS DOWN. You have to look at all features, the hieght, the weight, everything. During whitney’s early years she was very thin and michelle has that same body type. They are both tall and with he right hair, make up and clothing, michelle could look similar to whitney. Even though im not a huge michelle williams fan ive always thought that if there were to be a biopic of whitney, that michelle should play it.

    Idk, I’m going with answer D… Aka none of these chicas

  168. Teflon Boy February 26, 2012

    Oh My Gosh, I swear 98% of people posting on this topic are idiots straight-up! Firstly, Whitney’s voice is too distinctive, impressive and iconic to not be dubbed and used in the movie…, movie goers will be fully expecting to hear ‘TheVoice’ in the film and to not use her voice in a movie about Whitney Houston would be blasphemous. Luckily, there is likely hours of unheard recordings and acapellas available for inclusion.

    Secondly, only a talented ACTRESS should touch the role. Those saying Kelly Rowland is the closest match because she’s slender, dark and can sing not only need a hearing aid but a lesson in film casting.., because errr where has she demonstrated she can act for god’s sake?! Screaming in Friday 13th movie doesn’t count.

    Trust me, a Biopic about Whitney’s life is both inevitable and necessary. As with her music royalty lineage, stunning beauty, unparalleled vocals, classic discography, turbulent relationship, drug battles and subsequent (although-short lived) comeback, Whitney Houston’s story makes for likely one of the most breath taking true celebrity Biopics put to film. it has everything and deserves to be handled correctly. Therefore, those trying to shoe-horn their favourite poptarts i.e. Kelly, Beyonce, JHud, Rihanna, Monica, Brandy etc. (and I love Brandy) into the role is both short-sighted and insulting to Whitney’s memory. An unknown, talented actress outside of the 6% we currently know about is the ONLY way to go. Peace

  169. David February 26, 2012

    Whitney already started this process before she passed away. But I rather see someone with some type of vocal ability even though it’s not necessary. I would like to see Anika Noni Rose, Tamara Gray or Megan Good

    4. Kerry Washington

    THE HELL NO LIST:

    1. Brandy (Not only does she not look like Whitney Brandy is an awful dramatic actress. Yall remember Double Platinum)

    2. Jennifer Hudson (She just doesnt have the Whitney vibe at all)

    3. Tamar Braxton (WTF? I mean really O_o)
    Just because Whitney was their idol and friend doesnt mean they can play her. Y’all sound so stupid……

    I still say Monica, Kelly, or Brandy. N if not them, someone who we have never seen B4

  175. Mitch February 26, 2012

    Kelly Rowland has the total look, she would be the best choice.

  177. lala February 27, 2012

    Sharon Leal from Dreamgirls and Tyler Perry Why Did I Get Married and Soulmen? She has some good acting ability,looks young enough to play a young Whitney up into her 40s. Plus she can sing.I would like to see a good actress to play her,not who is hot right now. I can see KeKe Palmer play a teen Whitney. Kelly Rowland has the look but can she act?

  184. KD February 27, 2012

  185. D-MONEY February 27, 2012

    I think Eve looks like Whitney, she probably can pull that off.
    Angela Bassett can’t sing but she pulled off a Tina Turner.
    So yea……I think Eve would be good ……

  186. The Real B(randy) February 27, 2012

    Zoe Saldana. Flat out.

  187. sugahuni February 27, 2012

    Leona Lewis would be fitting as she can actually sing and has an extremely powerful voice just like whitney did..she even sang her songs for xfactor,which helped her win,so she’s ideal..

    I honestly think TAMYRA GRAY from season 1 of American Idol could do the role major justice

  189. Hilly February 27, 2012

    Did i really read RIHANNA, can she even act? She doesn’t look like her! I want very talented unknown actress who looks like her! We don’t need the same famous actresses everytime!

  190. COOKIE-DIVAS- TONI BRAXTON, RIHANNA February 27, 2012

    Paula Patton.

  191. The Fly’s Eye February 27, 2012

    Jennifer Hudson is too old to play her. Rihanna looks the part but it just should not be her due to her lack of vocal talent in comparison to Whitney. I think an unknown would be the best idea and launch a new star from Whitney’s life. Maybe J-Hud and RiRi could have guest starring roles etc.

  192. Glassheart February 27, 2012

    LEONA LEWIS!!! Hands down! This proves why she should do it!

  193. kimberly February 27, 2012

    When we think of whitney we think of talented, grace, homor, and all the other essence of diva. some of you people on tgj are idiots and you prove it on every post. How the hell can rihnana act like whitney with a bajan accent and further we are not looking to portray too much of whitney’s downfall which was drugs. so many other actresses out there and these names popping up are straight b*******. When thw world gets the memo that rihanna will starr as whitnet what would be the reaction?

    not kelly, not monica, not brandy, not beyonce, not rihanna, not your favorite period. let the audition run. and to the dirty ass that said that beyonce is an attention seeker, really have problems. someone who avoids the spotlight, someone who refuses the money, soemone who doesn’t share their personal life? umm and i read about her fav all the time doing s*** , the attention seeker queen. the b**** even saif j hud voice is annoying but listens to rihanna. i really can’t. keep trying. stupidity at it’s best.

    she knew whitney she acted with whitney and she knows how to imitate her goodd!
    so BRANDY !!!! no one else !

  198. JohnnyBoy February 27, 2012

    MICHELLE WILLIAMS HANDS DOWN!!! She’s a great actress.

  199. Joshua February 27, 2012

    Kimberly Elise HANDS DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!! She will kill this role and would be a big break I could see Oscar buzz if pulled off correctly

  200. Mely B February 27, 2012

    No ma’am to any of those mentioned. They should do what the producers/director did for the Selena movie – search for a talented UNKNOWN actress/singer.

    I love JHud, Megan Goode & Leona Lewis but none are right to portray Whitney Houston.

    And as for Kelly Rowland or Rhianna – PUHLEEZE make it stop!

  201. Realtalk 101 February 27, 2012

  209. B_STANNING February 27, 2012

    No of these people can play “THE VOICE” but if any i suggest angela

  210. DIONFATALEI February 27, 2012

    Apparently this movie was in the works before Whitney’s death and she was very excited about it 🙁

    But yeah, Haters Calm the f*** down. Clive Davis is the one who wants Rihanna to play Whitney but she will more then likely decline the role because she said in the past she doesnt want to play a singer in a movie. + Yeah she doesn’t look to much like Whitney being she’s lighter with green eyes.

    I think otherwise Rihanna could do it justice being she could bring out that raw emotion in the film, being her and Whitney seem to have a lot of similarities in life experiences and personality.

  211. Always love you, Whitney (RIP) February 27, 2012

    Jennifer hudson’s voice is TOO LOUD. Whitney could BELT but Jennifer is just too over the top type of singer. Whitney always had the voice that was amazing but never too much that she screamed like J hudson. -_- I think I will go with Debra Wilson. She’s PERFECT.

  212. JohnVidal (RIPWhitney-true great) February 27, 2012

    I think it was clear since yesterday that most of comments thought one of these two things:
    – No good idea, too soon
    – F****** pretty please not a singer who tries to be an actress (and of course still not a singer of Whitney´s caliber cos there´s none). Better a real and true great actress and even better if she´s unknown. No one would be credible otherwise. And of course lipping to THE motherfucking VOICE, there´s no way they should redo Whitney. People are here for Whitney, not wannabees

  213. Traviie February 27, 2012

    Heather Headley or Kelly Rowland

  214. TRUTH February 27, 2012

    CLIVE IS DESPICABLE FOR EVEN DISCUSSING THIS NOW! I HAVE NO OTHER COMMENT BUT THIS – IT’S WAAAAAAY WAAAAAY TOO SOON TO EVEN TALK ABOUT THIS OR CASTING THEREOF! IT’S DISRESPECTFUL PERIOD!

  215. THE REAL TYLER* February 27, 2012

    1. KELLY ROWLAND
    2. MICHELLE WILLIAMS
    3. DEBRA WILSON
    4. JOY BRYANT

    HONESTLY…. THESE ARE THE ONLY PEOPLE THAT WILL ACTUALLY BE A GOOD CHOICE. I CAN SEE MICHELLE WILLIAMS KILLING THAT ROLE HONESTLY!

  216. Alex Thomas February 27, 2012

    KELLY ROWLAND!

  217. Malaysia Gipson February 27, 2012

    The only real choice would be Brandy.

    Beyonce acting Sucks as well as Kelly’s especially if her acting isn’t up to par than those straight to DVD movies she’s made. Monica’s acting is too great either I’ve seen her work. Paula Patton is damn near 5 shades lighter than Whitney. I can’t see Vivica, Halle nor Angela doing Whitney.Whomever said Rhianna needs to be slapped to hell. Joy Bryant I’m not feeling her. Jennifer Hudson is okay but I just don’t see her giving me the umph that I need to play Whitney.THE ONLY PERSON I SEE PLAYING WHITNEY IS BRANDY

  218. BrandyLoveInfinity February 27, 2012

    BRANDY Deserves THIs ROLE- Its almost like Brandy would be paying her tribute to in FILM.. These two have history, Its not about looks, and I reckon MIss Bran can REALLY pull WHITNEY OFF.

  219. TIM JONES February 27, 2012

    well that don’t matter about complexion cause Angela bassett is 5 shades darker than Tina turner and she played her, SO PAULA PATTON ALL DAY!!!!

  220. milan February 27, 2012

    they should use a unknown actress and lipsync on whitney ,

  221. MaZ February 27, 2012

    I really hope there will be no biopic of Whitney. She was the actress of her own destiny. In term of Image I would say Michelle Williams or Monica.

    In my opinion I only see Deborah Cox. She has the whole package and was close to Whitney.

    You know “Same Script different cast.” 😉

  222. IKNOWTHETRUTH February 27, 2012

    MONICA SHOULD PLAY THIS PART. SHE HAS THE VOICE AND THE LOOK. SHE ALSO KNEW WHITNEY WHICH IS PERFECT. BRANDY DOESN’T HAVE THE BEAUTY OR THE VOICE OF WHITNEY. TIFFANY EVANS SHOULD BE CAST AS YOUNGER WHITNEY AND MONICA SHOULD FINISH OUT THE MOVIE IN THE ROLE. IT SHOULD BE CALLED ‘WHITNEY: MY LOVE IS YOUR LOVE, ALWAYS’. IT SHOULD BE DONE BY GREGORY NAVA, THE SAME PERSON WHO DID SELENA’S BIOPIC AND WHO IS GOING TO DO THE AALIYAH BIOPIC. ALSO, GET THE PEOPLE FROM ‘WHAT’S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT?’ ON BOARD AS WELL. KELLY ROWLAND SHOULD PLAY HER IF MONICA DOESN’T AND KELLY SHOULD ALSO PLAY RACHEL MARON IN THE REMAKE OF ‘THE BODYGUARD’.

  223. Burst Yur Bubble February 27, 2012

    MONICA.. nuff said. It’s not about looking or sounding like the artist. It’s about embodying the artist you’re portraying on screen. Angela didn’t look like Tina nor did she have her curves… but she played the hell outta Anna Mae!

  224. MelyB February 27, 2012

    This chick right here: SASHA ALLEN. I’d forgotten about her for a minute but she is awesome and would do Whitney justice.

    stop naming people who cant act… Most of the musical acts ya’ll are naming cannot act….

    Kelly did a movie that floped…. not a good actress
    Megan – i dont see her as Whitney
    Michell Williams – maybe if she gained some weight. but her weight now is perfect for the scenes when Whitney was bony and on drugs.
    Brandy- her eyes are to distinctive to play Whitney, they look nothing alike
    Leona – GTOH, yall cant be serious
    RiRi- maybe, and I only say that because I do see RiRi channeling Whitney nowadays. They dont resemble each other but then again they kinda do, especially in Whitney early career.
    Monica- she cant act… remember she did that MTV movie years ago about an interracial relationship. good movie/bad acting
    Zoe Saldana – I can see that a lil bit
    Angela Bassett- OLD
    vivica – OLD
    Paula Patton – she is too light skinned to play Whitney. she can wait for the Lena Horn movie or something.
    JHUD – HELL NO…

    & the WINNER IS….

    SASHA should have won that DIVAS contest. She still performs in Ny once in a while at an open mic… I think she didnt like the contract so she dropped out. BUT i dont think she can play Whitney.

    We need a Brown skinned woman to play Whitney…. Yall keep naming all of these light skinned people to play her…

    If Beyonce or RiRi died and someone named a dark skinned woman to play them in a movie, Yall would go haywire… Yall would complain about how the person doesnt look like them, so why are yall picking people who look nothing like Whitney…. not in the face or in complexion.

    when Beyonce dies I hope they get PRECIOUS to play her in her biopic

  227. millhouse February 27, 2012

    -_-

  228. Louise February 27, 2012

    Taraji P Henson

  229. T February 27, 2012

    Its to soon for that. but it would take atleast two or three females to portray the life of Whitney. and it should be someone who can sing or lipsync their a** off. but the Whitney movie will not be a good movie unless you told it all, which means the directors and produces would have to go behind the families back to get a scrip that isnt sugar coated, as far as finding a actor it depends how they auditions, majority of the film requires a young Whitney from the age of 13 to 18 then some one to transition from the 20 to the 40’s Whitney. So they need some one who can act like Whitney but also with a youthful look . people say no to rihanna but she actully looks like a young Whitney, I’ve never seen her act and she could mim the words like Angela Basset did in ike and tina.

  230. CH February 27, 2012

    It needs to be Paula Patton she has whitneys smile grace and still looks like she can give attitude she needs to lose serious weight for the role and get a tan but she is the closest thing to whitney I have seen. I would say Rihanna as well because she has some whitney like mannerisms and can rock the whitney curls like no other but this is a job for an experienced actress and though J.Hud has experience she aint got the look.

    Bottom Line: PAULA PATTON!

  231. millhouse February 27, 2012

    Aint Tarji like 40 yrs old..? how the hell is she gona play Whitney at 15. Yall mention some of the stupidest names…

  232. millhouse February 27, 2012

    GTFOH wit that Paula Patton s***…. Im starting to think that Paula herself keeps posting her name up on here. Whitney was special because she was one of thee first BROWN SKINNED superstars… Her comlexion is no where near light. Ya;ll naming a whole bunch of half breeds who look nothing like Whitney. I like the biopics when the actor actually looks like the person they are portraying. Paula is a good 10 shades lighter then WHitney….ya’ll need to stop…!!!

    Paula is so light sometime she can pass for white and this is the person ya’ll keep naming…. SMH… who ever is naming these light skin people is probably light skin themselves….

    Would you like if Kelly Rowland played Paula Patton in her biopic? No you wouldnt cuz they are two different complexions… and the same goes for Paula and Whitney…

    Ima still go hard in the paint for KeKe though…. She is gorgeous. She is old enough to play a grown woman. She can look young or more mature…. and she can Act. She is sassy like Whitney,,,, and with good makeup, she will look just like Whitney… Am I the only who sees this????????????

  233. Always love you, Whitney (RIP) February 27, 2012

    Debra Wilson as older whitney. And someone unknown to play whitney as a young girl. @Melyb dang she can sang…

  234. Tina February 27, 2012

    I think that Anika Noni Rose would be awesome as Whitney Houston. She can sing, dance, act , and I think she is incredibly gifted.

  235. K ANDB4EVER February 27, 2012

    heather headly old lookin ass… i dont think so. anyone over 30 should not be considered for the role

  237. love February 28, 2012

    are you all serious with these names??? Rihanna really??? in whitney’s own words- Hell to the No..LMAO…They gon get who they want to portray Whitney…I Hope it is a unknown talent thought..No actors or musicians or no one in the industry,

  238. PersianAliCruz February 28, 2012

    TOP PICKS FOR WHITNEY:

    1. Paula Patton (Looks just like Whitney. A little light but thats what makeup is for)
    2. Zoe Saldana (Great actress and can pull off the look)
    3. Joy Bryant (Looks so much like Whitney sometimes it scary)
    4. Kerry Washington (Great actress)

    THE HELL NO LIST:

    1. Brandy (Not only does she not look like Whitney Brandy is an awful dramatic actress. Yall remember Double Platinum)
    2. Jennifer Hudson (She just doesnt have the Whitney vibe at all)
    3. Tamar Braxton (WTF? I mean really O_o)
    4. Heather Headley (Too old)
    5. KeKe Palmer (Look nothing like Whitney)
    6. Michelle Williams (She looks old and I doubt she cant act)
    7. Kelly Rowland (Cant act and lacks stage presence)

  239. Tusense96761 February 28, 2012

    None of those singers has the chrisma or sparkle that Whitney had, not even close. I think it is more important to get that and get someone who can act, maybe Hallie Berrie. I do think it is too soon to be shopping this, so many us are still in shock that sweet, lovely, strong, one of a kind, authentic, great friend, loyal, great daughter, unbelievably the best Mom ever , her and her daughter were attached to each other, patriotic, the queen of pop is gone toooooooo soooooon. RIP Whitney, the world will miss all the more you could have given us. I think mostly I miss that sparkle that was your light. We will always have the memories and the music. I pray that Bobbi finds love and peace through her memories and grows stronger each day through God to get her through this loss like no other. God bless you Bobbi! We are all saying prayers for you. Your Mom raised you and gave you so much of herself that one day you may shine just like her. Jennifer Houston is someone who may be able to help you as she also lost her Mom too soon in tragedy. She has been able to stay strong and carry on. You should call her Bobbi.

  240. @_Learik_ February 28, 2012

    Brandy or Kelly… its too soon but I am leaning towards Brandy

  241. PersianAliCruz February 28, 2012

    Brandy fans are truly delusional if they think Brandy can play Whitney. Who she doesnt sound or look like at all……

    I guess Fantasia can play Janet Jackson next……

  242. Anon1 February 28, 2012

    Tamyra Gray (Season 1 American Idol) would be a fantastic choice, followed closely by Kelly Rowland.

  243. YAYA DACOSTA & VIVICA FOX February 28, 2012

    When I think of a young eighties Whitney ………. I think of he elegance, slender frame, poise and intelligence.

    Ya Ya Dacosta reminds me of anb 80s whitney and she could play early 90s whitney too. …. she was a model like Whitney and shes a great actress… Clive Davis said young Whitney was articulate, beautiful and poisd whne he signed her……..

    Kevin Costner said he chose her because of her elegance. Rihanna, Kelly R, and JHud are not elegant , classy, and well spoken like Whitney was in her 20s.

    Ya Ya Dacosta or Joy Bryant are beautiful former models and experienced actors….. they are the best choice for the young beautiful and classy 80s Whitney, especially YaYa. ….. Vivica Fox for and older Whitney

  244. Ciara is a superstar February 28, 2012

    Not so sure on KEKE PALMER

  245. Xtina Aguilera February 28, 2012

    LOL at nobody mentioning Christina Aguilera.

    LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!! You deaf fools.

    Christina is the only singer I know that can sound like Whitney Houston.

    Go check Christina’s performance of “I Run To You” she did over 10 years ago. WHITNEY HOUSTON HERSELF SAID THAT IT WAS THE BEST “I RUN TO YOU” PERFORMANCE, AFTER HER OWN!!!!!!!

    Hahahaha you mad?
    They should have Christina sing the songs.

    Or better yet, have someone just lipsync the original Whitney songs.

  246. Slick February 28, 2012

    SMH where do iStart…..first the names you guys are throwing out there is ridiculous first whomever does it is going to lipsync as you all have already put it cause u can’t fabricate that woman’s voice!

    Jennifer Hudson – She has soooo many things against her….Can’t Act, Doesn’t have BEAUTY (Whitney Beauty), not the riite size iDon’t care how much weight she loses, and She already f***** up the tribute at the Grammy’s that threw her out the running!

    Rihanna – HA! is all iHave to say…beauty and fashion is all she has but she coculd never play Whitney for she has an accent, she isn’t tall enough, she isn’t WHITNEY’s complexion and she also isn’t skinny enough!

    Meagan Good – TOO PLASTIC!

    Vivica Fox – Maybe the older Nippy with weight but not young Nippy but she too plastic now as well

    Angela Basset – Too old but iKno she could get the job done if they could make her look young and soft!

    Halle Berry – She isn’t up for the role and she took herself out the running being she said iCan’t sing so iWouldn’t do the role cause iLike to be hands on with all my characters and iWon’t lipsync! So she wouldn’t do it anyways

    KeKe Palmer/Paula Patton – WHAT??????

    Monica – Would be AWESOME for the role being she knew Nippy personally and she has the beauty and the look. Will she be able to pull threw though being she would have to imitate this woman at her best and worst and relive the dying scene.

    Brandy – Hmm she would be the same as Monica minus the look she is too distinctive in the face so she couldn’t lok like Whitney but iThink Monica would make it threw the filming before Brandy ever would!

    Kelly Rowland – All day she would be the perfect fit for both look and grace and just being the closest to Nippy’s look at her prime! @PERSIANALICRUZ & @YAYA DACOSTA & VIVICA FOX are silly to say the things they have said about Kelly but let’s be real she is the girl to get the role no matter wat you all say cause she can act and she is the only one that can get threw this performance with an A++ she followed Whitney’s Career and that was her idol (as it was alot of singers) and she will always be classy and elegant, not like nippy but this is why it’s an ACTING role! Not a real life be Whitney Houston role.

    Beyonce – HATED IT!

    YaYa (From America’s Next Top Model) – I chose her myself because she also would be a great fit beauty, fashion, grace, tall, and she is a great actress so she could play Nippy as well!

    Anyone else is pointless at this point!

  247. Slick February 28, 2012

    And again people you aren’t going to get Whitney so please stop saying none of these artist have the grace and elegance of Nippy !! Dats why it’s an acting role they would be trained by people close to her and acting coaches they will watch performances and be ACTING as Whitney smh!

  248. Teacher February 28, 2012

    @Slick JFYI Rihanna is 5’8-5’9

  249. PersianAliCruz February 28, 2012

    @Slick Whitney and Rihanna are about the same height….

    Kelly Rowland looks like Donna Summer not Whitney Houston.. Ive been a Whitney stan for 22 years so I would know what Whitney looks like and she is way darker than Whitney

    Rihanna, Monica and Paula Patton (She is alot lighter than Whitney but her facial features are dead on) and Joy Bryant are the only women named who look like Whitney

    As this picture shows http://i42.tinypic.com/dzusfs.jpg

  250. bruce February 28, 2012

    Rihanna looks like whitney, they have the same actions, only thing is her sccent and that can be worked on, i choose rihanna!

  251. Imjustsaying February 29, 2012

    Your not going to take yourselves out of your comfort zone to find a new singer or
    someone that is a unknowing person either because whom ever is written up the contracts for or with these money hogs well make sure that they get theres so it is not going to happen for the real talent that is waiting to do justice for this wonderful
    lady that has just pass and will always be remember I miss her and I will always practice by her music each time I go on to the stage Ms.Houston and God togethere
    will guide me as always that is how it is done I got this voice from those 2 sprits and I will continue God Bless.

  252. TyTy February 29, 2012

  259. riri March 2, 2012

    Cant take the fact that I said Rihanna is talentless? take a sit!

    stay pressed over my comments! I am going to say whatever I like about your girl since she is stupid enough to MAKE a song with a “man” that almost killed her!

    nope! the only thing I respected about her BEFORE she made music with woman beater is the fact that she was smart! But recent decisions and rants on twitter make me think she wasnt smart at all. Her TEAM were doing the work for her!

    Remember! It is not me that said LIVE on TV ” I dont want to be responsible for a young girl getting killed”, it was RIHANNA. She is as F.A.K.E as Beyonce!
