Yaya DaCosta Casted As Whitney Houston in Lifetime Biopic

The mystery is finally over as to who will play Whitney Houston in the upcoming Lifetime biopic about the late singer.

Despite Bobbi Kristina Brown saying she is the only one who should play her  late mother, the role is going to actress Yaya DaCosta.

According to TVLine.com, the TV-movie will be about Houston’s up and down relationship with Bobby Brown while in the midst of becoming a superstar.

So who is Yaya DaCosta?  She was the runner up on cycle three of America’s Next Top Model.  She also had recurring roles on All My Children, Ugly Betty and House and most recently was in Lee Daniels’ The Butler.
