Is this photo of Arlen Escarpata as Bobby Brown “Good Enough?”

As Lifetime moves forward with the production of their forthcoming Whitney Houston biopic, photos of the cast are slowly emerging. Last week, an image was released of YaYa DaCosta recreating the  iconic cover of Houston’s 1987 album, Whitney. Now, a new photo has been released of YaYa posing with Escarpata, who will play Brown in the television film.

In the image, Escarpata, who is sporting a blue tank top and baggy jeans, wraps his arms around YaYa’s waist while smiling from ear to ear. As for the hair well … Lets just remember it was the late 80’s/90’s.

The film, set to hit airwaves in 2015, will chronicle Houston’s rise to fame as well as her troubled relationship with Brown. During a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Angela Bassett, who will be making her directorial debut with the movie, opened up about telling the story of Whitney and Bobby’s love.

“You know, I reflect it back on the moment I first saw them together. It was when I was doing Exhale. We were all on set in the living room together and [Bobby] came to visit. I, like everyone else, had some preconceived idea … people just looked at a photograph or picture of them together and thought ‘They’re incongruous. They don’t go together. Why is she with him?’ I think that was usually the question, not ‘Why is he with her?’ They could imagine her with someone else who does something else, who carries himself [differently], who looks somehow different.”

Bassett also revealed that Brown is not involved in the film. “Of course, we’re very sensitive to whatever the relationships might be or what we have heard or what we perceive his relationship between her family and him. So we’re trying to be respectful.”

    I hope this movie goes up to 2007 at least showing her divorce.

Katt Williams Is Ready For His Comeback: “My Only Goal Is Getting Better”

Katt Williams is ready for his triumphant return!

After a series of arrests and bizarre incidents in 2016 that seemed to overshadow his public persona, Williams told HipHollywood he’s getting back to work and putting his personal issues behind him.

“Remember none of those things have ever been about work,” he said when asked if he hopes his new projects will overshadow his past missteps. “It’s more about having to deal with situations that are purposely thrown in your direction, and so I’ve been successful in the fact that I’m not nearly as good as I’m going to be,” he explained.

But if you’re thinking the 46-year-old comedian is in denial about his issues, he says absolutely not.

“I’m not one of those people that doesn’t recognize he’s stumbled,” he asserts. “I embrace the stumble because I know I’m going to come back faster than before, so my only goal is getting better at all points.”

And with six projects slated for release including the comedy, Father Figure with Owen Wilson and Ed Helms, Williams appears to be back on the right track.

“I’m really in each of these comebacks trying to be a better person than the person that left, and if you liked that person this is just a better version than that because that’s what I’m on.”

You can see Katt dishing more positivity in the exclusive clip below, and be sure to see Father Figures when it hits theaters December 22.
