According to published reports, DaCosta will take on the role of Whitney Houston in the upcoming Angela Bassett directed film about the singer’s life and untimely death in 2012 at the tender age of only 48.
DaCosta may have come to the public’s attention as an aspiring model, but it has been her many acting roles in films like “TRON: Legacy,” “The Butler,” and “The Kids are All Right,” that have helped keep the beautiful brown skin beauty’s name on Hollywood’s radar.
DaCosta, posted a quick message to fans via Twitter saying “Blessings,” and thanked fans for their mostly positive support.
Me, personally, I am ok with the casting of Yaya. I like her look. I think once they give her the full Whitney treatment, we will all be amazed.
As for Yaya’s acting, I’ve seen her in a few things and find her believable. I’m sure Angela was more than pleased, or she surely would not have been cast.
Whatever the case, I am super stoked. Bring the screenshots already.
