Oprah on the set of 'The Butler'

Oprah Winfrey hasn't taken it easy for her first lead major screen appearance since 1998's The Beloved.

The chat show host has landed a leading role in Lee Daniel's eagerly awaited epic The Butler, playing a woman who ages from 22 to 90 years old throughout the movie.

It's not clear whether another actress will play the character in her younger year or Daniel will use special effects, but the 59-year-old will certainly play her as an aging lady.

The iconic TV star was seen being transformed into a glitzed up grandmother for the part of Gloria Gaines, the wife of White House butler Cecil - played by Forest Whitaker.
