Whitney Houston's Lifetime biopic is really coming together!! And so quickly, we might add!
It's what everyone has been waiting for after news of the biopic was broadcasted for all to hear!
The network revealed in a new photo of Yaya posing next to her co-star and on-screen hubby, Arlen Escarpata!
The 33-year-old actor looks a little too innocent to portray the New Edition musician, but we have a feeling his acting chops will make up for it!
Arlen has appeared in a number of TV shows, so there's no doubt he has the experience for the role!
