Lee Daniels continues to fill out his hall of presidents for The Butler, and Robin Williams has signed on to star as Dwight Eisenhower for the decade-spanning White House tale, a rep for the actor announced today. Additionally, Williams, Mila Kunis, Peter Dinklage, and Melissa Leo will topline The Angriest Man in Brooklyn, directed by Phil Alden Robinson, about a doctor who accidentally tells her obnoxious patient that he has 90 minutes to live. Not much time to get a second opinion, then?
