Daniel Day-Lewis to Play “Honest Abe”

I was combing the internet for blog topics, looking for something to report BESIDES Harry Potter box office numbers, when this story caught my eye.  Not only will Steven Spielberg soon begin directing a bio-pic about Abraham Lincoln, but it has just been confirmed that Daniel Day-Lewis will be playing “Honest Abe himself.”

According to an article on totalfilm.com, Liam Neeson was reportedly attached to the role, but had hinted that the continual delays in the production schedule might keep him from playing the part.

I’ll be the first to admit that I love Liam Neeson as an actor, but Daniel Day-Lewis is right up there with him in my book.  Anyone who’s seen “There Will Be Blood” or the Scorsese-directed “Gangs of New York” knows the incredible talent Day-Lewis possesses.  Combined with Spielberg’s directorial vision, this film about one of our most popular presidents should be interesting to say the least!
