Rihanna Wants to Play Whitney Houston in Movie, Ashton Kutcher Portraying Steve Jobs, and Adam Levine's Role in 'American Horror Story'


Rihanna Wants to Star in Whitney Houston Movie

It hasn’t been long since Whitney Houston fans were surprised by the singer’s death.  But, what isn’t surprising is that rumors of a movie chronicling her life might one day be in the works.  It usually happens when something tragic happens to true icon, right?

While nothing has actually been agreed upon yet, buzz about who might some day take on the role has included such singers as Jennifer Hudson, Jordin Sparks, and Brandy.  There’s even been talk about Californication’s Meagan Good being a, pardon the pun, good candidate.

One singer has made an announcement that she’d love to portray the singer if a movie does eventually happen.Rihanna and Whitney Houston
And that singer is Rihanna.

In a recent interview she said that Houston’s music was always played in her home and that “I Will Always Love You” was the first song she remembers as being her favorite.

There’s a little resemblance and she can sing, so she could probably do the job.

Ashton Kutcher Portraying Steve Jobs

Ashton Kutcher has already proven he has what it takes to tackle a comedic role.  But, can he do serious?

The movie will be based on Walter Isaacson’s bio, simply titled Steve Jobs.  It will tell the story of Jobs’ life—how he went from being a “wayward hippie” to being one of the most well-known men in the world thanks to his being Apple’s cofounder.

No announcements have been made as to whether or not Kutcher will be returning to Two and a Half Men for another season.  If he does, plans are that he’ll film the movie in May while on hiatus from the show.  If he doesn’t, then it probably doesn’t matter what his schedule looks like for filming.

Adam Levine to Star in American Horror Story

American Horror Story fans are waiting patiently for some news about season 2 to be revealed.  So far nothing much has been mentioned.
Until now.

You might be hoping for a full cast lineup, where the new house will be located, and about a million other things.  But, would you settle for just one very good announcement?

So far just one actor has been confirmed.  And, I have to say, it’s pretty interesting.

Here’s a hint:  He’s a singer and has some experience helping other singers along…

It’s Maroon 5 front man and judge on NBC's "The Voice" Adam Levine!

It’s being said that his character will be half of a couple that has been dubbed “The Lovers.”

Just speculation on my part, but I wonder if it’s the couple we saw on the interactive teaser website that was released before the first season premiered.

Levine may have plenty of experience when it comes to singing, but this will be his first real acting gig.
