Forest Whitaker has a lot of stories to tell after serving eight American leaders
The Butler chronicles the life of White House butler Eugene Allen, who served under eight U.S. presidents. Allen is played by Academy Award-winner Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland), while the respective Presidents will be played by Robin Williams (Good Will Hunting), Alan Rickman (Die Hard), Liev Schreiber (X-Men Origins: Wolverine), John Cusack (High Fidelity), and James Marsden (The Notebook), amongst others.
Director Lee Daniels (Precious) has assembled a ridiculously great cast for The Butler. Apart from the aforementioned actors, Jane Fonda (Barbarella), Oprah Winfrey and Lenny Kravitz will also act in the movie.
