Top 10 Choices to play Whitney Houston in the new Lifetime biopic

By Lauren Wheeler,

The Whitney Houston-Bobby Brown Lifetime Original Movie has found a director and a storyline all it needs now is a Whitney. With a range of talented, beautiful African-American actresses, finding a person to fill the shoes of the singer is going to be a challenge.

It was announced today that Angela Bassett will be directing the TV movie about the intense and toxic relationship between Brown and Houston.

The two singers were married from 1992 and 2007. Their marriage was riddled with domestic disputes, drug problems and violence. The two have a daughter together.

Houston died in her hotel room at the Beverly Hilton on Feb. 11, 2012, sparking the discussion of a biopic. While it was originally going to be simply about Houston, they then developed it into a story of the relationship between Brown and Houston.

Because the film is being made, here are ten strong females that could pull off being Whitney in the film. If your choice didn’t make the list or if you agree, comment below.
