Daniel Day-Lewis has confirmed that he will play the role of Abraham Lincoln in the upcoming biopic of the sixteenth President. The film will be directed by Steven Spielberg and is based on the book Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin.
I’m not the biggest fan of Goodwin’s political sympathies. After all, her first major release was Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream *gag*. Though I trust the story of Lincoln and his cabinet in Spielberg’s hands. Also, I believe Daniel Day-Lewis is the most talented actor working today, so I am quite excited to see this film come to fruition.
