Mariah Carey is said to have signed on to join the all-star cast for the biopic of Lee Daniels’ “The Butler.”
The film is based on a true story and chronicles the life of Eugene Allen, who was a butler in the White House and served under eight U.S. Presidents. The movie also stars Forest Whitaker, as Allen, and Oprah Winfrey as his wife. Others in the star-studded cast include Minka Kelly, John Cusack, James Marsden, Jane Fonda, and Alan Rickman.
Mariah is going to be keeping herself very busy as she also just signed on to be the new judge on FOX’s “American Idol.”
Filming has already begun in New Orleans, Louisiana.
