Prior to her untimely 2012 death, Whitney Houston was reportedly in discussion to develop her biopic starring actress, Meagan Good. And since the icon’s tragic demise Good has stated that she would still like to portray Houston.
While promoting her latest role in “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” the 32-year-old appeared on last night’s episode of “The Arsenio Hall Show” as she discussed her connection to Houston in addition to why she’s vying for the coveted role.
“I think she was a very misunderstood spirit…I did know her,” she admitted. “Not super, super well but my husband was the executive on ‘Sparkle’ and I got to spend a little bit of time with her there…and she was an amazing person and I think very misunderstood. I just feel like I get her and I would tell her story, I feel like, the way she would want it to be told.”
