Harry Lennix takes on 'The Butler' calls it 'historical porn'. Harry Lennix refused to be a part of 'The Butler': "...Lee Daniels sent me the script for that film he's making now, The Butler, about the black butler at the White House. I read five pages of this thing and could not go any further".
"... he (Daniels) gives people these, stupid, luddite, antediluvian ideas about black people and their roles in the historical span in the White House and it becomes... well... historical porn. I refused."
