Jane Fonda in talks to play Nancy Reagan

(CNN) - Jane Fonda may be preparing for a new role – that of former First Lady Nancy Reagan.

Fonda's publicist confirmed to CNN that the actress is in talks to play the wife of the 40th president of the United States in the true-life story of Eugene Allen, an African-American man who worked as a butler in the White House from 1952 to 1986.

    What ever producer should be shot ! Jane Fonda is nothing more than the mud puddle at Nancy's feet. I regularly avoid any Hanoi Jane featured movies.

    But you would watch Sarah Palin if she was playing the role of "Joe" McCarthy.

    Sniffit - I can also ridicule those things I abhore. It's a free country. I have no problem with the existence of opposing viewpoints.
    Yeah, right. Just as long as you can control them the way you deem necessary (Citizens United).

    I just have a problem with the stupid ones, such as "if we keep giving the rich more and more money, they'll someday reach a magical threshhold where they no longer wish to horde and consolidate it all, at which opint it will rain down upon all of us peons like the rich taking a big money p-ss all over us."
    And your solution is to take from them. Here's a novel idea! Why don't YOU go MAKE IT yourself?!!

    To all you neocons that judge the value of your women by how "pretty" they are, and are always asking why liberal women are so ugly, well, Jane is one HOT 75 year old "libtard"!

    Nance needs to get the name of her surgeon, maybe he can fixed those botched "owl eyes" that some quack gave her.

    She was right about us propping up a corrupt regime. All of us who lost friends and loved ones should be placing the blame on our politicians who put us in a war they would not let us win. BTW, I am a veteran.
