Oprah's first movie since 1998's Beloved, released it's first trailer...
The movie's story is inspired by Wil Haygood’s Washington Post article about a black man who served as White House butler to eight presidents over three decades. Winfrey plays the wife of Whitaker's character, the title role of butler Cecil Gaines.
The all-star cast also includes Alan Rickman as Ronald Reagan, Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan, John Cusack as Richard Nixon, James Marsden as John F. Kennedy, Minka Kelly as Jackie Kennedy, Liev Schreiber as Lyndon B. Johnson, Robin Williams as Dwight Eisenhower, Melissa Leo as Mamie Eisenhower, Orlando Eric Street as Barack Obama and Nelsan Ellis as Martin Luther King Jr. Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard, Lenny Kravitz, David Oyelowo, Vanessa Redgrave and Alex Pettyfer also are among the ensemble.
It's got a pretty amazing cast and the director of Precious, so odds are there will be a lot of Oscar buzz about this way before it actually comes out on October 18th.
If Oprah gets nominated, will she have to interview herself during her annual Oprah Winfrey Oscar Special?
If anyone knows how to interview Oprah...it's Oprah.
