Casting News: Will Rihanna Play Whitney Houston? [PHOTOS]

Wearing a Cleopatro screen print sweatshirt with color block heels, a black skirt and unique sunglasses, Rihanna posed for photos with fans outside her London hotel before heading to rehearsals for Jonathan Ross on BBC 1.

Reports surfaced this week that Rihanna is on the short list of stars who will play the late Whitney Houston in a biopic.  Jordan Sparks, Jennifer Hudson and Vivica A. Fox are also up for the role.  The Daily Mail reports that Willow Smith may play Houston as a child.

Awful choice if they cast Rihanna.  Simply awful.
