In Lee Daniels’ The Butler, Forest Whitaker (not pictured) plays Cecil Gaines, a character inspired by real-life White House butler Eugene Allen. In the film, long before Cecil steps foot in the Oval Office, he grows up on a plantation in Virginia where his parents (David Banner and Mariah Carey) tend the fields.
