    The upcoming Whitney Houston biopic has its Bobby Brown.

    Final Destination 5 star Arlen Escarpata has been cast as Houston's ex-husband, Bobbi Kristina's father and R&B singer Bobby Brown in the Angela Bassett-directed TV movie.

    America's Next Top Model star Yaya DaCosta is playing Houston.

    The late singer's family has expressed disappointment with the film and feels that Houston should not be relegated to a Lifetime movie. They think she is worth a bigger production.

    Bassett was Houston's Waiting to Exhale co-star. This is her directorial debut.

    Will you watch this biopic? Or would you prefer to see W. Houston on the BIG screen?
