Minka Kelly Cast as Jackie Kennedy in New Lee Daniels Movie

The new Lee Daniels film following a butler who worked in the White House through eight different administrations - unsurprisingly titled The Butler - has its Jackie Kennedy. Vulture is reporting that Minka Kelly will take on the iconic role in the film, joining an already star-studded cast that includes Matthew McConaughey as John F. Kennedy, John Cusack as Richard Nixon, Alan Rickman as Ronald Reagan, and Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan. The eponymous butler will be played by Forrest Whitaker.

We're sold.
