| Filed under: Silly!PolitikBarack ObamaKevin SpaceyJohn McCainSteven Spielberg

Barack Obama showed off his comedic chops during his speech at Saturday night's White House Correspondents' Dinner, but that was far from all of the HIGHlarity he brought to the event!

In fact, he also proved that he's a pretty impressive actor, as seen during his appearance in a parody video of Steven Spielberg discussing his cinematic 'follow-up' to Lincoln, chronicling our current President's life and starring notorious method-actor Daniel Day-Lewis in the title role!

That's right, folks! Get ready to watch Barack Obama playing Daniel Day-Lewis playing Barack Obama (above)!

And the LOLz didn't stop there!

Game Change premiered on HBO Saturday night and was pretty damn HUGE! In fact, it was the premium cabler best original film in eight years!

Take that, John Adams! (Or is that considered more of a mini-series…)

The controversial TV flick starring Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin scored an average 2.1 million viewers during its weekend run and 3.6 million viewers over its four showings, depicting John McCain's costly move of bringing in Palin as his Vice Presidential running mate.

Team Palin may not be too pleased with the flick, but the people have spoken!!! They LUV it!

Guess we'll have to TIVO this one the next time it is on?

Jason Recher, an aide to the McCain-Palin ticket in 2008 stated that he was told by Game Change's writer, Danny Strong, that he'd be able to see the script before the TV flick came out.

You know where this is going…Strong "reneges" and Recher is pissed.

Recher contacted Strong to see the script by the writer replied and stated that HBO wouldn't allow him to see it and HBO didn't give Recher or six other Palin aides a DVD.

Strong tells his side of the story:

With HBO airing Game Change, Reelz Channel has decided to get in on the Sarah Palin mix.

The network will air The Undefeated, a favorable documentary highlighting Palin's journey through the 2008 campaign process.

Game Change's portrayal of Sarah Palin isn't as shiny and sparkly like this one. The HBO movie highlights John McCain's strategist, Steve Schmidt, second guessing his idea of picking Palin as McCain's VP.

The Undefeated will premiere
