Oprah gives us a peek at Lee Daniels's 'The Butler,' starring Alan Rickman as Ronnie and Jane as Nancy

Michael Musto posted a shot leaked by Oprah posing with Lee Daniels (The Paperboy, Precious) and, no, you're not mistaken: that's Nancy and Ronald Reagan. Or at least, a reasonable facsimile. In fact it's Jane Fonda and Alan Rickman, who are playing the first couple in Daniels's next film. The Butler. And it's a scary, scary sight. The way so many Brits must have felt by seeing Meryl Streep become Margaret Thatcher (Iron Lady). Too soon?

Daniels is currently shooting the film in New Orleans, and the film's all-star cast includes Mariah Carey, John Cusack, Lenny Kravitz, James Marsden, Liam Neeson, Liev Schreiber, and Robin Williams.
