Looks more like Franklin Pierce to me.

I'm stoked about this news. Daniel Day Lewis is an awesome choice. I wont lie though, I am still bummed Neeson didn't get the role, but if anyone was going to replace him, I'm glad it's DDL.

I'm not saying they're twins, but IMO he resembes Pierce more than he does Lincoln.

Stephen McHattie (300) is virtually a carbon copy of Abe Lincoln.

If anything Danny Day in this project should get it rolling faster. But on the other hand I'm still not holding my breath with Spielberg. He has so many damn films lined up right now. Currently making Water Horse, then another TinTin, Interstellar, Robopocylapse, and a possible Indiana Jones 5. All of that besides Lincoln. It could still be several years before this movie gets made and Spielberg announces he is directing a new movie bi-annually.

But Lincoln will be Spielberg's next project, he was supposed to do Robopocalypse after War Horse but I'm guessing that project has been pushed back, the press release Spielberg and Stacey Snider (CEO of Dreamworks) released stated that "Filming is expected to begin in the fall of 2011". http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=71787

Yeah I just recently read that. Great if true, hopefully it goes as planned then.

With Day-Lewis onboard I'm sure this project is on fast-track and also since none of Spielberg's other projects hasn't finished the script yet he doesn't have anything else on the plate, the same goes for Day-Lewis.

So Lewis is already in Illinois already preparing for the role. Damn, the day after he's annonced, a day later he's already in Illinois.

I'm glad they got Day-Lewis, a role like this needs an actor that's going to be incredibly dedicated to the part. Still a shame, though. Neeson put all that work into researching Lincoln and has nothing to show for it.

I'll admit I always had a little trouble seeing Liam Neeson as Lincoln. He's got the height, but his face shape doesn't seem narrow enough.

Day-Lewis is almost as tall as Neeson, he's got the right shape, and he has a thinner longer face. With makeup, I can see him as Lincoln.

Plus we know Day-Lewis prepares for his roles obsessively, so I'm expecting a pretty faithful portrayal of Lincoln.

Day-Lewis is so obsessed he will be saying forescore and seven years ago weeks after the cameras stop rolling.

Paul Dano for John Wilkes Booth!

But in all seriousness, if any one is better than Neeson, Daniel Day is it.

Day-Lewis is the best living film actor in the world. With that said, Liam Neeson was perfect casting and I am honestly disappointed Speilberg put it off so long he cannot do it. This role was absolutely perfect for Neeson.

But Daniel Day-Lewis is a wonderful replacement.

Some manips of DDL as Lincoln. I pretty much have an erection:

Though it does make me wonder. Do you think they'll leave DDL's ears alone, or will they give him prosthetics? Lincoln's got some pretty distinctive, big-ass ears.

This article is two months old, but whatever:

Quote:
Actor Daniel Day-Lewis visits Springfield to research Lincoln role

Actor Daniel Day-Lewis was in Springfield Friday, the same day it was announced he is to portray Abraham Lincoln in a movie to be directed by Steven Spielberg.

Accompanied by presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, Day-Lewis toured the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum, the Lincoln Home, the Old State Capitol and the Lincoln-Herndon Law Offices.

The planned movie, with the working title “Lincoln,” is based in part on Goodwin’s 2005 book “Team of Rivals,” said Kathleen Kennedy, who is co-producing the film with Spielberg.

“We just came in for a quick peek,” Kennedy said Friday. “Doris, obviously, has been a great partner in all of this.”

The group also toured the vault below the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library, where Illinois State Historian Thomas Schwartz showed them several Lincoln artifacts.

“All of us were very moved by that,” Kennedy said.

Dave Blanchette, a spokesman for the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency, said Day-Lewis spent a lot of time in the House of Representatives chamber in the Old Capitol.

“He got up on the dais and said, ‘This is a very intimate setting, you can really see everybody in the room when you’re speaking from here,’” Blanchette said. “It was obvious he was trying to get a sense for what Lincoln might have seen when he spoke and gave his ‘House Divided’ speech.”

However, when the group toured the portion of the presidential museum dedicated to Lincoln’s years in the White House, Day-Lewis stopped short of the rooms that depict Lincoln’s assassination and funeral.

“The producers went in, but he didn’t,” Blanchette recalled. “He said, ‘I’m portraying Lincoln alive and I choose not to go any farther.’”

On location

Kennedy said she did not yet know whether any part of “Lincoln” might be filmed in central Illinois. Technical scouting will take place later this year, she said.

The Washington Post reported that Spielberg was seen Thursday in Richmond, Va., dining with officials from the Virginia Film Office. A spokeswoman for that office declined to comment to the Post, but Lincoln visited Richmond in April 1865, in the last days of the Civil War. That overlaps with the expected setting of the film.

According to a press release from DreamWorks Studios, “Lincoln” is to focus on the “political collision of Lincoln and the powerful men of his cabinet on the road to abolition and the end of the Civil War.”

It’s scheduled to begin filming in fall 2011, with a release date toward the end of 2012. Tony Kushner, who won the Pulitzer Prize for his play “Angels in America,” wrote the screenplay.

“Lincoln” isn’t the only Railsplitter movie slated for release in 2012: Fox has announced a summer 2012 premiere for “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,” based on the Seth Grahame-Smith novel.
