Last week, RC posted a FIRST LOOK image of former ANTM star Yaya DaCosta as Whitney Houston for the upcoming biopic, I Will Always Love You. Now Lifetime TV has released a second image of DaCosta along with Arlen Escarpeta, the actor tapped to play Houston’s husband, Bobby Brown. The photo shows the two actors embracing each other with DaCosta wearing one of Houston’s classic wigs and Escarpeta rockin Brown’s trademark “Gumby” fade.
As previously reported, the Angela Bassett project takes a closer look at the Houston/Brown relationship that started at the height of her singing, modeling and acting career. While die hard Whitney fans have already expressed their dislike about the film and even some of its casting choices, I think the project is coming together rather nicely. But, that’s my prerogative!
Do you think they capture the essence of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston? Tell us your thoughts and #DontBeCruel
