Looks like 2012 might be the year biopics get started.
First, there is the Whitney Houston
biopic, which is supposedly being produced by Clive Davis
. Last year, Meagan Good expressed interested in playing Whitney. Two other names have swirled around over the past few months: Lark Vorhees
and Vivica Fox
. While both are talented, I don't see either one as Whitney. I could see Nicole Beharie
, Regina King
, Kerry Washington
or Wendy Raquel Robinson
from The Game
' biopic is a long time down the road, but Herbie Hancock
has already been chosen to do the score. The only real name floating around is Don Cheadle
, which seems like a perfect match. Other actors that could fit the bill are Chiwetel Ejiofor
or Samuel L. Jackson
Davis was a legendary jazz musician but he also had demons—he had an addiction to heroin and was known to be physically abusive. It would take a true talent to tackle such an iconic and complex person.
Which biopics would you like to see?
