Who Will Play Whitney Houston in Upcoming Lifetime Movie?

With all the controversy surrounding the upcoming Angela Bassett-directed Lifetime Network film about Whitney Houston, the production is moving full steam ahead, and an actress has been chosen to play the late music icon: Yaya DeCosta!

As runner up on cycle 3 of America’s Next Top Model, Yaya has since stretched her modeling career into acting, appearing on “All My Children," "Ugly Betty," "House," and films “Honeydrippers” and Lee Daniels' "The Butler."

The film, tentatively titled “Whitney Houston” will debut in 2015 and focus on Whitney’s early career and treacherous relationship with Bobby Brown.

We think appearance-wise, she’s a perfect! But does she have the chops to play Whitney? Sound off, Roomies!
