Nelsan Ellis is playing Martin Luther King Jr in Lee Daniels history epic “The Butler”! 
You may recall my post from the other day where I talked about the EPIC cast of Lee Daniels’ latest film, The Butler. Well a huge casting choice has been made - Nelsan Ellis of True Blood is playing Martin Luther King! I’m SO happy for him, he is so talented and this is such a great opportunity for him that he deserves so much. He is one of the best actors on True Blood and I always look forward to his scenes. This is such great news!
For those who don’t know, this movie is being scored by Quincy Jones and stars: Forest Whitaker, David Oyelowo, Oprah Winfrey, Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard, Lenny Kravitz, Alan Rickman and Jane Fonda (The Reagans), John Cusack (Nixon), Robin Williams and Melissa Leo (The Eisenhowers), James Marsden and Minka Kelly (The Kennedys), Liam Neeson, Alex Pettyfer, Colman Dingo, Vanessa Redgrave, Liev Schreiber, Mariah Carey
P.S. Here is a picture of Nelsan holding a puppy.
