They're baaaack: Jane Fonda and Alan Rickman as Ronald and Nancy Reagan



picture-1.jpgLike this isn't enough bad mojo in this election season, let's dig up two polarizing political faces from the '80s and splash them around one more time. Yes, it's actors Jane Fonda and Alan Rickman in character as Ronald and Nancy Reagan. (Or the other way around; otherwise it'd be weird.)

This is a Twitter pic from Oprah Winfrey from the set of The Butler, a 2013 movie that spans decades in the White House. And it's full of '80s actors in bizarre roles. For example? Try Robin Williams as Dwight Eisenhower. Or John Cusack as Richard Nixon. It's going to be interesting if nothing else.

I'm not sure I'm buying Rickman as Ron, but Fonda appears to be a deadringer for Mrs. Just Say No.

[Tip of the cap to WaPost pal Jen Chaney for posting this first. Buzz me when you finally get that Cusack pic!]
