Jane Fonda, Nancy Reagan


Ready for a total Reagan double take?

Then feast your eyes on the shot of Jane Fonda and Alan Rickman as Nancy and Ronald Reagan on the set of Lee Daniel's The Butler. Fonda and Rickman bear a striking resemblance to the presidential pair, and we're having a serious '80s flashback while fawning over the photo.

The 74-year-old actress stars as Nancy Reagan in the historical drama, and her blond coif, pursed lips and sharp jawline distinctly recall the looks of the former first lady.

Fonda's costar Oprah Winfrey also tweeted a pic from the set with the caption "Director @LeeDaniels , @JaneFonda as Nancy Reagan ,  Alan Rickman as Prez Reagan and me gonna be a long nit."

The Butler tells the story of a White House servant (played by Forest Whitaker) who—from Harry Truman through Ronald Reagan—served eight presidents in the White House over the course of three decades. Oprah plays butler's wife, Gloria Gaines.

The film also stars Alex Pettyfer, John Cusack, Robin Williams, Lenny Kravitz and Minka Kelly among others and is slated for release in 2013.

Do you think Jane and Alan perfectly resemble Mr. and Mrs. Reagan? Tell us your thoughts in the comments!
