Jane Fonda to play Nancy Reagan
Zing! This oughtta get a rise out of conservatives. “Hanoi Jane” — yup, the rightwads are still calling her that forty years later — will be playing America’s favorite holier-than-thou “Just Say No” ice queen.
The movie is The Butler, directed by Lee Daniels (“Precious”). The movie is a historical drama based on the life of Eugene Allen — White House butler from 1952 to 1986. Forest Whitaker will star as Eugene Allen.
Oprah Winfrey, Liam Neeson and Hugh Jackman are also in the movie. Jane Fonda’s role will be relatively minor since Eugene Allen only had to deal with Nancy Reagan during the last five years of his 34-year career.
