The Butler (2013): Filming in New Orleans



I don't know how I haven't seen anything on this before. The cast they have for this movie is ridiculous, many of which had to be evacuated when Issac came through and interrupted shooting.

LINK

quote:

One of the films that has been on my radar for some time is the new project "Butler" about Eugene Allen, a black man who worked in the White House for eight presidents, beginning in 1952 till 1986.


Seems like a great story that will be told. However, some of the casting I don't really agree with. I came across this movie when reading about Alan Rickman, who will play Ronald Reagan.


Alex Pettyfer
Thomas Westfall

Robin Williams
Dwight Eisenhower

John Cusack
Richard Nixon

James Marsden
John F. Kennedy

Alan Rickman
Ronald Reagan

Liev Schreiber
Lyndon B. Johnson

Minka Kelly
Jackie Kennedy

Lenny Kravitz
James Holloway

Nelsan Ellis
Martin Luther King Jr.

Forest Whitaker
Cecil Gaines

Jesse Williams
Rev. James Lawson

Cuba Gooding Jr.
Carter Wilson

Jane Fonda
Nancy Reagan

Terrence Howard
Howard

Vanessa Redgrave
Annabeth Westfall

Melissa Leo
Mamie Eisenhower

Mariah Carey
Hattie Pearl

Oprah Winfrey
Gloria Gaines

And many more...
I searched to see if this has been discussed, and didn't see anything so SIAP. Should be a good movie!

My soon to be brother in law is in it. He has scenes with several of the big actors but mostly with Forrest Whitaker.

That's awesome. He's such an underrated actor.

Yea it will be interesting how they spin that one. I could see it working though.

This is the one I'm having trouble with, for whatever reason (probably because of past movies I've seen him in)

James Marsden
John F. Kennedy

Here are some pics he just sent me of him on set today. I think it's his last day. He's been on for over a month.

My office is near where they're filming. I saw Cuba Gooding walking around today. I saw Forest Whitaker a few weeks ago numerous times.
