The Weinstein Company has released four clips from director Lee Daniels’ upcoming historical drama The Butler.  The film stars Forest Whitaker as Cecil Gaines, a butler who served at the White House from 1952 to 1986, and tells his life story against the important historical events of the time as seen through the eyes of the many inhabitants of the White House.  Whitaker leads the pic alongside Oprah Winfrey as his wife and David Oyelowo as his son, but Daniels has filled the rest of the cast out with a litany of familiar faces on tap to play the many Presidents and First Ladies over the years, including John Cusack as Nixon, Robin Williams as Eisenhower, and Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan.
