There's a new movie in the works called "The Butler". It's about Eugene Allen, a real-life White House butler who worked for eight different presidents. And they've got some pretty interesting actors lined up to play those presidents and their wives. For starters, they're going to try to pass off MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY as JFK. Makes perfect sense. Everyone knows whenever JFK wasn't singlehandedly saving the world from nuclear war, he was furiously attempting to make a bong out of a pineapple. MINKA KELLY will play his wife JACKIE. JOHN CUSACK will play RICHARD NIXON. ALAN RICKMAN of "Harry Potter" fame will play RONALD REAGAN and JANE FONDA is playing his wife NANCY. By the way, the REAL Nancy Reagan is recovering from a fall in which she broke several ribs. She's 90 years old. LIAM NEESON is RUMORED to be playing LYNDON JOHNSON. OPRAH WINFREY is playing the butler's wife and it looks like FOREST WHITAKER will be playing the butler.
The movie is being directed by LEE DANIELS of "Precious" fame.
