'Hanoi Jane' Set to Play Nancy Reagan in New Film
Sometimes Hollywood casting directors must chuckle into their sleeves at the way their decisions drive conservatives to distraction.
Case in point - this news flash concerning Oscar-winner Jane Fonda's new project:
Jane Fonda is going to be playing Nancy Reagan in a new movie. Oh yes. According to Variety, the reviled-by-conservatives actress/activist has joined the cast of "The Butler," the new Lee Daniels drama about a White House servant (Forest Whitaker) whose career lasted from the Truman Administration to Ronald Reagan's. Daniels is also looking to Liam Neeson to play Lyndon Johnson and John Cusack to play Richard Nixon.
Arch-liberals Fonda and Cusack playing a pair of major figures on the Right? Conservatives should stock up on antacids starting ... now.
