'The Butler' Poster: Lee Daniels' New Film Fits Massive Cast List On New One-Sheet

Is This Star-Studded Drama An Oscar Front-Runner?

The cast of Lee Daniels' new film "The Butler" is so packed with big names that it almost needs two posters to adequately convey just how many of Hollywood's brightest appear onscreen. Alas, one will have to do.

Set for release by The Weinstein Company on Aug. 16, the film focuses on Eugene Allen, a service worker who spent 34 years employed at the White House. Oscar winner Forest Whitaker stars as Allen with Oprah Winfrey playing his wife. That's not all, of course: John Cusack, Jane Fonda, Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard, Robin Williams, Melissa Leo, James Marsden, Alan Rickman, Vanessa Redgrave, Lenny Kravitz, David Oleyowo, Minka Kelly, Liev Schreiber, Jesse Williams, Clarence Williams III and Mariah Carey all co-star.
