New Exclusive Photos From Disney's Secretariat With Diane Lane, Nelsan Ellis, and Kevin Connolly

Exclusive First Look: Diane Lane, Nelsan Ellis in Secretariat

A few months ago, we got a peek at the trailer for Secretariat, Disney's inspirational real-life story of a housewife (Diane Lane) who led her horse to the Triple Crown. A few things were clear from the get go, mainly that this is definitely a feel-good tear-jerker with a happy ending. However, there's one person we didn't get to see much of in the preview: Nelsan Ellis, aka True Blood's Lafayette! But thanks to these new exclusive photos, we're getting an even closer look at the movie before the film hits theaters Oct. 8. I'm loving Lane's 1970s blond look, but also keep an eye out for a mustached Kevin Connolly. Check out the pics!

Lots of gorgeous photos when you read more.
