Hot Shot: Jordin Sparks & ‘Sparkle’ Cast Cover ‘Ebony’ Magazine, Talk Whitney Houston Biopic

Published: Friday 10th Aug 2012 by Rashad


With just a week left before fans can get to experience pop legend Whitney Houston‘s final movie role, the cast of the highly anticipated ‘Sparkle’ set their promo efforts into overdrive for the film.

The star studded cast, which also features Derek Luke, Omari Hardwick, Cee Lo Green, and more, saw its leading ladies Jordin Sparks, Tika Sumpter, and Carmen Ejogo feature on September’s Ebony magazine.

And, as their promo efforts continue to cross many-an-outlet, a recent sitdown saw the ladies quizzed on their thoughts on who should assume the role of Houston in a biopic – should one ever come to light.  Find out who they think could fill the shoes of the legendary diva below:

    all jokes aside…….it would be a hard choice choosing who should play whitney ! Whitney was one of a kind..but if i had to choose somebody it would be Wendy williams….*crickets* because something about Wendy williams reminds me of whitney houston !

    i’m glad they didn’t lighten that girl on the right. Her black is BEAUTIFUL! That’s a sickening colour on her.

    Monica could play whitney in my opinion but the only and #1 CHOICE for me is Wendy Raquel Robinson for “TheGame” AKA Tasha Mack ! She Could Really Play whitney houston and very well .

    Tika sumpter is looking tranneylicious on that cover. I hate that weave too.

    I know people won’t like this but am I the only person who had no interest in seeing this movie even when Whitney was alive? Apart of me is saying honor Whitney memory by going but I still think the movie isn’t gonna be that good . Think I’ll wait for redbox or cable or something.

    Plus I don’t like going to movies to see urban films. Too many black folks in one theater means it prolly will be ghetto and it makes me uncomfortable. And before the racist comments start up. I’m black. #shade

    I´m not into a Whitney biopic either. But at least it seems everybody knows the actress playing her will be lipsyncing
