The first image of Whitney and Bobby together for the Lifetime biopic has been released. As we reported earlier, Belizean actor Arlen Escarpeta earned the role of Brown, starring alongside Yaya DaCosta who will play Whitney Houston.
Personally, I think the casting is pretty spot on. It would be impossible to find someone who looks exactly like Brown but this is pretty close. The hair is everything.
One of my coworkers argued that he looks too clean cut but back in the ’90’s Bobby Brown was a bit more clean cut than he is now. Some you all recall the days when he was the ultimate bad boy sex symbol.
But let us know what you think about this casting. Does it work for you?
And in other Whitney biopic news, Angela Bassett posted an open casting call on her Twitter account, inviting anyone in LA who would like to come and be an extra in the biopic to show up for food and fun.

We imagine they’ll probably be in a concert scene.
The biopic, which Bassett mentioned will be shot in 21 days, will be released early next year.
Are you still feeling good about it?
