Inspired by true life events, The Butler, starring Forest Whitaker, Terrence Howard and Oprah Winfrey takes us on, yet another historic journey. Whitaker, who leads the cast, plays Eugene Allen: a distinguished butler who worked for a slew of Presidents over a span of 34 years.
Photos circulated a while back showing Howard and Winfrey getting steamy on the set. Now, we get to see more of whats behind the Oscar award winning Lee Daniels’ upcoming drama, The Butler.
The just released trailer shows us snippets of the drama which plays up the film’s potential of being not only powerful but award worthy too. In addition to the leading characters, Daniels used plenty of familiar faces such as Jane Fonda, John Cusack, Robin Williams and Lenny Kravitz.
The Butler is scheduled to hit theaters this fall.
