Mike Huckabee is taking Cynthia Nixon to task for playing Nancy Reagan in a new TV movie and criticizing the beloved first lady at the same time.

"It's easy to see why actress Cynthia Nixon was cast to play Nancy Reagan in the new made-for-TV movie "Killing Reagan," based on the bestselling book by Bill O'Reilly," Huckabee said Wednesday on his Facebook page.

"Side-by-side photos show a striking, almost uncanny resemblance. But she makes it clear in interviews that she and her family were not fans of the Republican first lady.

"That's par for the course in Hollywood — it was probably enough of a burden having the name 'Nixon."'

Earlier this week, Nixon revealed she was "not a fan" of Nancy, who died last March at the age of 94.

"Her inner sense of panic and need for control … would drive her to do things like consult astrologers about every last thing," Nixon said.

"She had a very problematic relationship with her children, particularly her daughter. I think that was coming from the same thing: a need for total control."

But Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas and two-time GOP presidential candidate says one has to wonder that if Nixon "decries Nancy Reagan for having to be 'in control' of her world, how [does] she feels about Hillary [Clinton?]"

Clinton, Huckabee says, "appears to have an irrepressible need to control literally everything in her world, my world and your world."

"Killing Reagan," which focuses on John Hinckley's efforts to assassinate the nation's 40th commander in chief in 1981, is now in pre-production.

In the film, Nixon, best known for her role as Miranda Hobbes in "Sex and the City," stars with Tim Matheson who plays Ronald Reagan.

Like Nixon, Nancy was also a movie star, having appeared in films like "Donovan's Brain" and "Hellcats in the Navy" before marrying the future president.
