Dear God, no

Please tell me that this is some kind of early April Fool's joke:
Controversial Academy Award-winning actress Jane Fonda is expected to portray former Republican first lady Nancy Reagan in director Lee Daniels's upcoming White House-set drama Butler
Hanoi Jane playing Nancy Reagan? That ought to play well in fly-over country. But wait - it gets better:
John Cusack is negotiating to portray Richard Nixon
Ugh. What, Leonardo diCaprio wasn't available?

I looked at the movie ads in the paper the other day just to see if I would pay to see any of them.

And no, I wouldn't.
