THE BUTLER: EIGHT PRESIDENTS AS SEEN THRU THE EYES OF A WHITE HOUSE SERVANT

Everything we hear about Lee Daniels’“The Butler” makes us more eager than ever to see it. It’s based on the epic story of a White House butler who served 8 presidents over three decades, throughout the civil rights era. Forrest Whitaker plays the butler and Oprah Winfrey plays his wife. Minka Kelly (above) was just cast as Jackie Kennedy with Matthew McConaughey as JFK. John Cusack plays Richard Nixon, and Alan Rickman and Jane Fonda were cast as the Reagans. Liam Neeson is up for the part of Lyndon Johnson. It starts shooting this summer. All in all, it sounds historically and politically fascinating.

    Not that I have anything against Liam Neesons acting, but why is he in ‘every’ movie?

    Historical!?!?1? Really?!?!?! They going to show it was really the cia shooting Kennedy not patsy lee Harvey Oswald. They going to show the bullet from the front not the back. Are they going to show bush was behind Reagan shooting because he talked about changing the fed? If so then it really would be incredible.

    Any film with Oprah Winfrey in it is clearly headed for the $1.99 DVD bin at Walmart.

    “… it sounds historically and politically fascinating.”

    And terribly casted. Minka Kelly AS JACKIE KENNEDY? Jackie Kennedy on her very BEST day could never look 1/3rd like that!!

    It the late 70’s or early 80’s there was a miniseries called Backstairs at the Whitehouse that followed the lives of White House staff throught about 40-50 years of administrations, starting in the 20’s/30’s. Sounds similar.

    Interesting cast choices. Hope it turns out to be a good one. 🙂

    It does sound good. Except for Oprah as the wife. Forest Whitaker, I’m sure, will be fabulous.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
