Oprah Tweets First Looks at the Cast of Lee Daniels, ‘The Butler’

The Butler is currently filming and Oprah, who has a role in the film, has provided our first looks at the cast of the upcoming Lee Daniels film.

Based on a true story, The Butler stars Forest Whitaker as White House butler Eugene Allen who served under 8 Presidents. Alan Rickman and Jane Fonda (as Ronald and Nancy Regan), Robin Williams (Dwight Eisenhower), James Marsden and Minka Kelly (John F. and Jackie Kennedy), Liev Schreiber (Lyndon B. Johnson) and David Oyelowo, Cuba Gooding Jr, Mariah Carey (?), Alex Pettyfer, Melissa Leo, Vanessa Redgrave, Terrence Howard and Nelsan Ellis also star.

In the following pics, you can see Director Daniels, Oprah and Fonda and Rickman in full Reagan makeup. The second picture features Oprah and Lenny Kravitz (James Holloway).

The cast is fantastic and I’m incredibly curious to see how it turns out.
