The Butler is a film coming in 2013 about a White House butler that served eight American Presidents over the course of three decades. The cast is actually quite unreal. There’s Robin Williams as Dwight D. Eisenhower; Melissa Leo as Mamie Eisenhower; Alan Rickman as Ronald Reagan; Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan; James Marsden as JFK; John Cusack as Tricky Dick Nixon; Liev Schreiber as Lyndon B. Johnson; Nelsan Ellis as Martin Luther King, Jr; as well as Forest Whitaker, Vanessa Redgrave, Mariah Carey, Lenny Kravitz, Alex Pettyfer, Cuba Gooding Jr, Terrence Howard and as mentioned in my title, Oprah Winfrey.
The film was inspired by Wil Haygood’s Washington Post article about an African-American man who served as a butler (Forest Whitaker, as shown in the header photo) in the Whitehouse for eight presidents over three decades. On Monday, Oprah tweeted the photo below that shows her looking all sultry while smoking a cigarette and sitting next to Terrance Howard. Oprah says, “And THAT’s a Wrap! Terrance Howard and me in our goodbye”love scene.” Check out the photo she is referring to below.
