The Butler Cast: We Haven't Seen This Many Attractive Faces In The White House Since The Bartlett Administration

The casting news/rumors for director Lee Daniels' latest film, The Butler have officially gone bananas. The movie, based on a Washington Post article and following the life of Eugene Allen who served at the pleasure of The President for over three decades, is packed with more familiar faces than a Gary Marshall rom-compilation (TM Prisco). And they're not even done casting yet. Daniels and screenwriter Danny Strong (yes, "Buffy" fans, that Danny Strong) have both said that they're choosing to focus mainly on the relationship between Allen and his son Charles, so all the folks that have been cast as past U.S. Presidents and First Ladies will serve mainly as window dressing. But what expensive, talented window dressing it is. It's easy to see why, with Daniels' stellar track record and the inevitable comparisons to the insanely popular The Help and "Downton Abbey," anyone would be eager to sign on to the project. Here's a first glance at the good-looking cast. Did I choose the cheese-cakiest photos available? I surely did. Enjoy.
