Want to know what really goes on inside the White House? Late night keggers with the Ag Secretary? Who will tell us the secrets of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue! I’m looking forward to a film called “The Butler,” which follows White House butler Eugene Allen and the 34 years he spent serving the First Family. Here’s the cast so far: Forrest Whitaker plays the real-life butler; Oprah is hiswife. Minka Kelly has been cast as Jackie O alongside Matthew McConaughey as John F Kennedy. Huh? Are you kidding me? Did JFK go shirtless and make bongs out of pineapples? Alan Rickman and Jane Fonda play Ronald and Nancy Reagan. John Cusack will play Richard Nixon. Cuba Gooding Jr, Nicole kidman andLiam Neeson are all rumored to be involved as well.
Here are better casting choices, in my opinion. Are you ready Hollywood? Kristen Davis from Sex & The City as Jackie O. Greg Kinnear as JFK. Zachary Quinto (loved him as Spock in Star Trek) would make a terrific Ronald Reagan and if you take off her glasses and give her a blonde wig, you can’t do better than Sarah Palin as Nancy Reagan. Although, maybe we should let the guy who made the puppets in the Genesis Land Of Confusion video be in charge of the whole film. Thoughts? Share your comments. Best casting idea gets a free kegger with the Ag Secretary. (Prize not available in all states.)
