Forest Whitaker as John Houston

It would require an actor of this Oscar winner's caliber to pull off the part of Houston's father and business manager. While much of the media's attention has been fixated on the alleged lawsuit between them in 2003 — which remained unresolved when John died that year — the film would give the world a chance to see him as the doting father who raised Whitney to be the amazing woman she became.
