Daniel-Day Lewis as Abe Lincoln

http://www.dailyblam.com/news/2011/1...80%99s-lincoln



Quote:
Lincoln is directed by Stephen Spielberg and stars two-time Academy Award winning actor Daniel Day Lewis (Gangs of New York) as president Abraham Lincoln. The film will chronicle Abe's efforts to abolish slavery and end the civil war. Recent reports say that Daniel Day Lewis has not broken his Lincoln accent since filming commenced and is so engrossed in his character his “real name doesn’t even appear on the call sheet.”

Joseph Gordon Levitt (Inception) will portray Lincoln's eldest son Robert Todd Lincoln, who was the only one of Abe's children to live past their teen years. Tommy Lee Jones (No Country For Old Men) is being tapped to play Thaddeus Stevens, a Republican leader and congressman from Pennsylvania who was vital in helping Abe's efforts to rid slavery. Sally Field is set to play Abe's wife Mary Todd. Jared Harris has signed on to play Union general Ulysses S. Grant. Other actors on board the project in minor roles include David Oyelowo, Hal Holbrook, James Spader, John Hawkes, Tim Blake Nelson, Bruce McGill, David Costabile, Byron Jennings, Dakin Matthews, Boris McGiver, Gloria Reuben, Jeremy Strong, David Warshofsky and Joseph Cross.

Lincoln began filming this fall in Virginia for a targeted release in late 2012 under Disney's Touchstone label via DreamWorks Pictures.

I've always thought DDL has to be a bit crazy to take method acting to the extreme that he does. I can't even imagine how awful he must have been around during the filming of Gangs of New York, not to mention There Will Be Blood.

You can't doubt that he gives great performances, though, and I'm sure Lincoln will be much in the same vein.

According to many reports from those who knew him, his voice was high-pitched, but not shrill and he spoke with an accent that a mix of Indiana and Kentucky. Go here for more.

Din't Lincoln say that if he could win the war without freeing the slaves, he would? Will that be left out of the movie?

Here's the quote you're thinking of (from Wikipedia):

Quote:

If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that. What I do about slavery, and the colored race, I do because I believe it helps to save the Union; and what I forbear, I forbear because I do not believe it would help to save the Union.

Yeah, most people don't know that Jobs stole his look from Lincoln. The only change was not using the stovepipe hat.
