yaya dacosta-Arlen-Escarpeta*Angela Bassett’s Whitney Houston biopic has now found its Bobby Brown.

On Monday, the New York Post revealed the first official image of the couple from the film with Yaya Dacosta as Whitney and Belize-born actor Arlen Escarpeta as the late singer’s ex-husband Bobby Brown. The Post’s photo, which is Escarpeta’s first official image from the movie, comes days after Entertainment Weekly posted the first image of Decosta as Houston.

Escarpeta’s work includes roles in “The Shield,” “Judging Amy,” “Boomtown,” “ER” and “Cold Case.”

After marrying in 1992, Houston and Brown experienced a rocky relationship that often followed them. In 1993, the pair welcomed their daughter Bobbi Kristina — who has been a well-known critic of the film and lashed out as Bassett via a series of harsh tweets calling the director a “basket case.”

Lifetime’s Whitney Houston movie is scheduled to air on the network in 2015.
