Default Jane Fonda to play Nancy Reagan in film 'The Butler'

It's like a long, delayed spit in the face...

Jane Fonda to play Nancy Reagan in film 'The Butler'

Quote:
The right wing is going to love this: Jane Fonda, whose outspoken opposition to the Vietnam War continues to enrage conservatives, will play former first lady Nancy Reagan in Lee Daniels' "The Butler."

"The Butler" is a sprawling historical drama that centers on Eugene Allen, a black man who worked as butler in the White House under eight presidents.

Artistically, she is a great choice.

It is, however, ironic, to say the least.

she's an excellent actress and I look forward to her role. I never heard of this film but sounds interesting.
I dont care if J Nicholson plays a priest even tho he is a known philanderer. He's a helluv an actor also.

She is indeed a fine actress. You have to realize not everyone bases their opinions regarding non-political issues on an individual's political ideologies.

Fonda had some extraordinary performances in Any Wednesday, Cat Ballou, Period of Adjustment, They Shoot Horses Don't they?, Barefoot in the Park, Julia, On Golden Pond, The China Syndrome, The Morning After, etc...

She was nominated for an Oscar in They Shoot Horses, Don't They?, Julia, The China Syndrome, On Golden Pond and The Morning After.

She won the Oscar for acting in Klute and Coming Home.

You are not nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress or Best Supporting Actress seven times, winning twice, without being talented.

I suspect your opinions of Jane Fonda regarding her acting abilities are based more on her politics as opposed to her actual acting talent.

The only thing I was disappointed with regarding that issue was Streep did not mention Mrs. Thatcher once during her speech when she won the Oscar for Best Actress.

I suspect it was because Thatcher would be considered conservative over here in the US.

Still, not a classy move by an otherwise phenomenal actress.
