We knew Rihanna was starting to cross over into acting, but this is one MASSIVE role to take on!
The singer is reportedly the favorite on a short list of actresses, including Jennifer Hudson, Vivica A. Fox and Jordin Sparks, in talks to take the role of the recently-departed Whitney Houston in a biopic chronicling her life, directed by Clive Davis!
Well, she may not have a lot of experience in the film world, but if she's the number one choice for producers, there must be good reason!
And if she can pull it off, think about what a BREAK-OUT part this could be for her!
We'll be interested to see how this project develops!
What do U think? Who should play Whitney Houston in her biopic?
