HERE'S TODAY'S BONUS STORY:

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Oprah Winfrey is considering a co-starring role in a new Lee Daniels' film, "The Butler".  A profoundly interesting true story of Eugene Allen, a black man who worked as  a bultler in the White House and served 8 presidents from 1952-1986. 

The film is very much in it's early stages.  As a matter of fact the financing isn't completly ironed out, but Daniels is said to be working on a top notch cast in the meantime.  John Cusack, Mila Kunis, Hugh Jackman and Oprah are just a few of the names being thrown around. 

Word has it, Daniels wants David Oyelowo her starred in "Red Tails" and the upcoming thriller "The Paperboy", to play the butler.  So, we'll see how it goes, but it sounds like it's gonna be good.  Oprah actually worked with Lee Daniels before with the movie "Precious" which as we already know scored two Oscars.
