If you look too quickly, you might be tricked into thinking it's a photo from the archives.

Oprah Winfrey tweeted a photo of herself and "Precious" director Lee Daniels posing with Jane Fonda, who uncannily resembles Nancy Reagan during her White House days. Fonda stars in Daniels upcoming film, "The Butler," based on real-life White House butler Eugene Allen, who served through eight American presidents. Oprah will star as the butler's wife.

In the photo, the stars are dressed in black-tie attire with '80s hair styles to match.

British actor and "Harry Potter" star Alan Rickman stands next to Fonda and plays Ronald Reagan in the film.

Daniels has gathered a cadre of celebrities to star in his latest film, all playing famous political figures. John Cusack will play Richard Nixon, Robin Williams has been cast as Dwight Eisenhower, and Liev Schreiber plays Lyndon B. Johnson.
