Daniel Day-Lewis Is Nearly IDENTICAL To Abraham Lincoln In Steven Spielberg's Newest Movie!

| Filed under: Film FlickersSteven SpielbergJoseph Gordon-Levitt

We knew Steven Spielberg hired Daniel Day-Lewis to play the 16th President of the United States in his upcoming historical biopic, but it looks like he decided to travel back in time and kidnap the real Abraham Lincoln instead!

The first image of the Oscar-winning actor as the man on the five dolla dolla bill has been released and the likeness is pretty impeccable, don't ya think?

Based off of just every role he's ever committed too, we're sure Day-Lewis' interpretation will be just as accurate as well!

When asked about the political subject that the film centers on, Spielberg explained:

“Lincoln had a very, very complicated – and at the same time, extremely clear — inner life. He thought things out. He talked things out. He argued both sides of every issue. And he was very careful in making any decision. As a matter of fact, his opponents and his enemies criticized him often for being impossibly slow to a decision.”

Unlike the president's most recent screen incarnation in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, the drama that hits theaters on November 16 focuses on the last four months of his life. Specifically, Spielberg is exploring the political strategizing he undertook at the close of the Civil War to ensure that slavery would abolished forever.

We smell Oscar bait already!

And lots of box office potential because the film has lots of other star power too. Tommy Lee Jones stars as one of the president's "most engaging and challenging adversaries", while Sally Field plays Lincoln's wife and Joseph Gordon-Levitt is one of his sons.

Oh, this is gonna be good!

    Great choice, he's one of the best actors…but Sally Field as his wife…unless his wife was a meddling, paranoid or neurotic, which, I'll admit, she plays rather well.

    Special effects can probably make any of us look like him.

    Daniel Day-Lewis is The Man. Best. Actor. Ever.

    Eh. Looks similar. Perez, you're the one who thought Lindsay Lohan looked identical to Elizabeth Taylor, so you've lost credibility.

    Re: Rosette Nebula – Rosette, Mary Todd Lincoln was. So, I guess it's type-casting.
