FILM TOPIC: Who should be cast in The Bodyguard remake?
There are plans for a remake of the 1992 Kevin Costner-Whitney Houston romantic drama The Bodyguard. My only hope is that the singer they choose to replace Houston is an actual singer, and I don't mean Rihanna. For the sake of keeping the interracial relationship intact and adding a little diversity to Hollywood's upcoming film slate, how about we brainstorm some African American crooners.
Beyonce isn't the best actress. Jennifer Hudson has slimmed down enough to be considered "hot enough" for a lead romantic role. I'd love to hear Anika Noni Rose sing more, but she's not famous enough to woo a large audience. Kerry Washington could definitely pull-off stubborn and obnoxious. Some might consider Halle Berry (44) looks too old, since Houston was 29 at the time of the role (even though Costner was 37). I think Nia Long would be interesting. But again, I have no clue if Washington (34) or Long (40) can actually sing. And if they're aiming for an even younger demographic, they could go for Lauren London (26) or Keke Palmer (17).
Here's my dream casting though: Alicia Keys and Channing Tatum. That would be amazing.
