“The Butler” is a new movie from director Lee Daniels (“The Paperboy,” “Precious”) that chronicles the life of Eugene Allen (played by Forest Whitaker), a butler in the White House for three decades and eight U.S. presidents.
The movie has gotten a star-studded cast to play the former POTUSes and their wives — Robin Williams and Melissa Leo as the Eisenhowers, James Marsden and Minka Kelly as the Kennedys, Liev Schreiber as Lyndon B. Johnson, John Cusack as Richard Nixon and Jane Fonda and Alan Rickman as the Reagans.
The latter are pictured above with Oprah in a photo she tweeted. Oprah plays Whitaker’s character’s wife in the film, and director Daniels. And boy, are Fonda and Rickman downright eerie as the Reagans.
“The Butler” is slated for a 2013 release.
