Jane Fonda on the set of 'The Butler' as Nancy Reagan.

"Lee Daniels' The Butler" (as the film is now titled, after the infamous legal scuttle between Harvey Weinstein and Warner Bros.) boasts a sprawling and diverse cast. Forest Whitaker plays the butler in this true story of a White House butler and the changes he witnesses in Washington over the course of the 20th century. Liev Schreiber plays Lyndon B. Johnson, Robin Williams is Dwight Eisenhower, John Cusack is Richard Nixon, and then there's Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan. 

As you'll see in this new clip below, she plays Reagan with cool sangfroid and appears to be having fun with it. Ronald Reagan, not seen here, is played by Alan Rickman.

Weinstein Co. is releasing Daniels' film on August 16 with Oscars in it sights. Never underestimate Fonda: the two time best-actress Oscar-winner recently landed a 2013 Primetime Emmy Nomination for her guest work on Aaron Sorkin's HBO series "The Newsroom."
