Oprah's back – on the big screen, that is – in The Butler.
Based on the life of Eugene Allen, the White House head butler who served eight presidents during a 34-year career, the film stars Forest Whitaker playing a character called Cecil Gaines. Oprah plays his wife, Gloria Gaines.
As shown in the intriguing two-minute, thirty-second trailer, the OWN network mogul, 59, shows off the acting chops that once earned her an Oscar nomination, for 1985's The Color Purple.

Talking politics can be risky, but Mila Kunis, Matt Damon and John Cusack are taking a chance on screen.
Kunis's role on That 70's Show is nothing like her new project taking place in the same decade. Kunis will executive produce the CW drama Meridian Hills, The Hollywood Reporter confirms. In the series, a young woman joins forces with other politically motivated women in the Junior League during the women's liberation movement in 1972.
Damon, meanwhile, has signed on for an eight-part documentary series about climate change for Showtime, THR reports. The doc from James Cameron and Jerry Weintraub will focus on the human connection to the environmental conundrum.

Politically active actor John Cusack is taking on Republican presidential candidate John McCain in a new commercial for MoveOn.org, a non-profit group which mobilizes voters.
In the 30-second spot, called "Betcha Can't Tell Them Apart," Cusack, 41, urges voters to take the Bush-McCain Challenge, and attempts to illustrate how Senator McCain and President George W. Bush share similar viewpoints on domestic and foreign policy – which he implies is to be frowned upon.

File under: Boys will be boys. After a night of partying in Manhattan's trendy West Chelsea neighborhood with a half-dozen buddies recently, Wicker Park star Josh Hartnett decided he hadn't had enough. So he and his posse approached the front doors of notorious "gentlemen's" club Scores West Side at about 3:45 a.m. Since the club closes at 4, the doorman refused to admit them. But Hartnett and his friends "practically begged to be let in," and even offered "a large tip," according to a source at the club. Summoning a manager, the doorman eventually relented – but only for one round of drinks. "They were very grateful," the source says. "They packed more partying into 30 minutes than anyone would think was humanly possible."
