Drudge: President Obama Turned Down Cameo in 'The Butler'

New Media powerhouse Matt Drudge sent out a tantalizing Tweet Sunday about the upcoming political drama Lee Daniels’ The Butler.

The film, based on the life of a black butler named Eugene Allen who served through several presidential administrations, already stoked ideological fires by casting noted liberals Jane Fonda to play Nancy Reagan and John Cusack as President Richard M. Nixon.

Now, Drudge teases that one living president was offered a cameo in the film but turned it down.

Lee Daniels’ The Butler is produced by Harvey Weinstein, one of Hollywood’s most prominent Obama backers.
