Director Angela Bassett’s Whitney Houston Biopic Reveals First Look Pics
The late singer’s 1987 album has been replicated by America’s Next Top Model alum Yaya DaCosta who snagged the role of a lifetime – to play Whitney Houston in the Angela Bassett-directed Lifetime Network production.
The Root reported:
Lifetime stated that Whitney will mainly focus on Houston’s life in the early- to mid-1990s, when she skyrocketed to fame.
Today, Lifetime released a new photo of “Whitney” and “Bobby”, with DaCosta posing with Arlen Escarpata in what looks like a Gumby lace front. The Belizean-born Escarpata, 33, will portray Houston’s ex-husband, Bobby Brown. Escarpata has appeared in The Shield, Judging Amy,Boomtown, ER and Cold Case.
