First Real Look At Daniel Day-Lewis In ‘Lincoln’

Coming a little while after the release of a seemingly candid shot of star Daniel Day-Lewis caught in the throes of eating a meal whilst wearing what appears to be a rather epic beard in preparation of his turn in Steven Spielberg‘s Lincoln, we finally have our first official look at what to expect from this hotly anticipated film.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch has snagged a photo from the film’s set, and I must say, he plays a rather convincing Honest Abe.

You can check out the first real look at Day-Lewis as Lincoln below.

Based on the Doris Kearns Goodwin book, Team of Rivals, the film co-stars a huge cast, including Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Hal Holbrook. No release date has been announced yet, but the film is far and away one of the most anticipated films of the coming year, and should be hitting just in time for awards season next year.

A great cast behind it, this is set to be one hell of a film, especially with Spielberg at the helm.  All signs point to this being something quite special, so here’s to hoping that it can stick the landing.

  1. Scary, but Lewis looks a LOT like the 16th president.  And seriously, I cannot WAIT for this movie to come out.  The book was fantastically weird, and we’ve all seen how awesome JGL does with “off the wall” movies.
