First Official Image Of Daniel Day Lewis As Steven Spielberg’s Abraham Lincoln

Next time Abraham Lincoln pops up in your local omniplex, he’ll have shaken off the vampires. Daniel Day Lewis is starring in the title role of Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln and while some set snaps gave us a preview of how he’d look in the role, this officially sanctioned image is probably a better indicator.

Talk about a Lookee Likey.

Spielberg has been discussing Day Lewis’ technique with Entertainment Weekly, looking to burst some bubbles:

Daniel was always conscious of his contemporary surroundings. Daniel never went into a fugue state. He did not channel Lincoln. All that stuff is just more about gossip than it is about technique.

I was calling [all] the actors by their character names. That was something I felt was important to establish a little authenticity, maybe even more for me than for them.

Hopefully he also took some measures to establish authenticity for us. We’ll see, when Lincoln rolls around in Awards season. The US release is set for November 9th, but the UK will be waiting until January 25th next year.
