Some actors are born for certain roles and makeup artists in Hollywood can perform miracles, but I am speechless over this image sent to me by the Disney PR folks that shows Daniel Day Lewis in his title role in LINCOLN.
It’s uncanny, isn’t it?
LINCOLN, the movie, focuses on the last four months of the president’s life and the strategizing he had to orchestrate politically at the end of the Civil War to make certain that slavery would be illegal forever. Director Steven Spielberg explains, “Our movie is really about a working leader who must make tough decisions and get things done in the face of overwhelming opposition.”
LINCOLN is a DreamWorks, Twentieth Century Fox, Participant Media production opening in limited release November 9, expanding November 16, 2012.
Can you think of another actor who resembled the role more perfectly? If so, let me know in the comments below. I’m stumped on this one. Seriously blown away. And absolutely looking forward to seeing the entire movie now.
