Speculations about Rihanna and Channing Tatum starring in The Bodyguard remake have been circulating around the blogosphere. But instead of talking about that combo, I'll offer up my own alternatives.
1. Jensen Ackles and Leona Lewis.
If you've seen Ackles in Supernatural then you can understand why his blend of charming sarcasm makes him perfect for the role of Frank Farmer. Plus, he looks really good with a gun and that's paramount. And Lewis has the whole powerhouse voice going on. If anyone has the vocals to come close to Whitney it's her. "I keep bleeding, I, keep, keep, bleeding love..."
2. Alicia Keys and Chad Michael Murray.
She's not the strongest actress but neither was Whitney Houston. I can totally imagine Keys playing the sassy superstar who secretly has a crush on her all too cute bodyguard that comes in Chad Michael Murray package. "No one can get in the way of what I'm feeling..."
Those are my picks so who would you choose?
[Hat tip to my sis for the Ackles suggestion]
