Not Daniel Day LewisIt's been a rough year for Abraham Lincoln. Don't get me wrong, I love me some vampires, but I kind of feel like Honest Abe's reaction would've reacted to that particular cinematic interpretation of his life with a presidential facepalm. I mean, this is the guy who freed the slaves and all. Jussayin'!
Anyway, Lincoln can look down from the heavens again without fear -- thanks to Steven Spielberg and his upcoming movie Lincoln, starring Daniel Day Lewis as you-know-who.
No battles with the undead in this flick. Says Spielberg: “Our movie is really about a working leader who must make tough decisions and get things done in the face of overwhelming opposition." And with uber-method actor Daniel Day Lewis in the title role, we can expect an extremely on-point portrayal of that working leader.
And we've got the sneak peek pic to prove it! Get ready ...
WHOA. Nope, that's not a colorized pic of Abraham Lincoln, I swear! It really is Daniel Day Lewis in character. Mind-blowing, right? Even knowing the incredible talent Day Lewis has for transforming himself with every role. The man is absolutely channeling Lincoln in this shot. Amazing.
Are you impressed by this shot of Daniel Day Lewis as Lincoln? Will you see this movie?
