    Wow!

    Daniel does looks like a replica of Abraham Lincoln! Eagerly waiting for the movie, more so when Steven is at the helms of affairs.

      Agree I.One.

      Daniel Day-Lewis is one of my favorite actors – they were already talking about Oscar win for him even before the first look was out.

        The Oscar win was sure even if DDL did not deserve it. After all America does fund subjects about its own history way too much. 😉

        DDL is a great actor though,… I remember writing on him once on a former site. Topic was based on Gangs of New York!

    Daniel Day-Lewis had initially rejected Lincoln.

    “Dear Steven-

    It was a real pleasure just to sit and talk with you. I listened very carefully to what you had to say about this compelling history, and I’ve since read the script and found it — in all the detail of which it descries these monumental events and in the compassionate portraits of all the principle characters — both powerful and moving. I can’t account for how at any given moment I feel the need to explore one life as opposed to another. But I do know that I can only do this work if I feel almost as if there’s no choice. That a subject coincides inexplicably with a very personal need and a very specific moment in time. In this case, as fascinated as I was by “Abe,” it was the fascination of a grateful spectator who longed to see a story told rather than that of a participant. That’s how I feel now in spite of myself, and though I can’t be sure this won’t change, I couldn’t dream of encouraging you to keep it open on a mere possibility. I do hope this makes sense Steven. I’m glad you’re making the film. I wish you the strength for it and I send both my very best wishes and my sincere gratitude to you for having considered me.”

    Daniel.”
