Meagan Good is letting it be known that her dream job is to play Whitney Houston in the late singer's biopic.
Good, the 32-year-old Christian actress, is currently starring in the comedic film release of "Anchorman 2." However, she recently told the Los Angeles Times that playing Houston would be her "dream project."
"Good said her dream project is a Whitney Houston biopic, which she had been discussing with the singer before her death early last year," The Times reported after interviewing Good recently.
However, this is not the first time that Good has expressed her desires to obtain the possibly career changing role. The actress recently appeared on "The Arsenio Hall" show where she spoke about her connection to Houston.
"I think she was a very misunderstood spirit…I did know her. Not super, super well but my husband (DeVon Franklin) 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," Good said on the late night talk show. "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."
For the role of Houston, recording artist and actress who died at age 48 last year, actresses Jennifer Hudson and Halle Berry were rumored to be considered, according to previous reports from The Urban Daily. While no major film studio or production staff have been confirmed for the film, other actresses have expressed interest in portraying Houston.
Good previously told Vibe Vixen that Houston was open to seeing a biopic on her life unfold.
"I want to do Whitney Houston's life story. I think that would be an incredible story to do," Good said in an interview before Houston's death. "I talked to Whitney a little bit about it, and she's open to it, so I want to see what happens with that. Hopefully, in the very, very near future."
