If the opportunity should have prevailed, I'm sure Whitney would have been proud. Actress Meagan Good was in talks with Whitney Houston star in a biopic about the singer before her death. Good, of Californication, reveals she was in discussions to play Houston in a movie version of her life, and they even had a meeting set up this month to chat.
"We were fairly in the beginning stages. We were supposed to meet today actually."
Good tells E! Online she and Houston had agreed that the R&B icon's voice should be used in the movie's performance scenes.
"I don't think we've ever had a singer in history that I remember that could sing like her. Plus, when people see someone's life story they want to hear that person's voice because they connect with it, in their spirit and their soul. So you would have to use her voice." The 30 year old teared up as she remembered the star in the present tense. "For anybody spending time around Whitney, she's so much fun," Good said. "She's got just like a sassy attitude and is very funny and funky. She's definitely a fun person to be around."
