Alan Rickman could be joining the cast of historical drama The Butler.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the British actor is in talks for a part in the film about butler Eugene Allen, who served at the White House from 1952 to 1986.

Director Lee Daniels has enlisted top stars to take on small roles as the notaries who passed through the White House over the years, with Forest Whitaker, David Oyelowo and Oprah Winfrey taking the three lead parts.
