Jane Fonda may be an outspoken Democrat, but the 74-year-old actress may just be changing her political tune for an upcoming big screen role.
Fonda -- who earned the nickname "Hanoi Jane" for her criticism of the Vietnam War -- is in talks to portray conservative former First Lady Nancy Reagan in Lee Daniels' new film The Butler, CNN reports.
Detailing the true-life tale of Eugene Allen, an African-American man who worked as a White House butler from 1952-1986, the upcoming project would feature Oscar winner Fonda as the wife of the 40th U.S. president, Ronald Reagan.
Filming for The Butler is expected to begin this summer.
