Daniel Day Lewis Debuts Lincoln Look

by at . Comments

Daniel Day Lewis is Lincoln as far as we’re concerned, as evidenced by a photo uploaded on Twitter by Michael Phillips from the set of the Steven Spielberg-directed biopic.

Daniel Day Lewis as Lincoln
Lewis appears to be taking a break from filming Lincoln for a meal in the tweeted shot -- never thought you’d see an image of Abraham Lincoln in jeans!

Lincoln is currently filming in Virginia and with its pedigree, we are already thinking Oscar. Lewis, of course, is Lincoln, Spielberg is directing and the film is based on the astounding book by noted historian Doris Kearns Goodwin called Team of Rivals. Goodwin even worked with screenwriter Tony Kushner to adapt the novel for the big screen.

It was right after the revolution, right after peace had been concluded. And Ethan Allen went to London to help our new country conduct its business with the king. The English sneered at how rough we are and rude and simple-minded and on like that, everywhere he went. Til one day he was invited to the townhouse of a great English lord. Dinner was served, beverages imbibed, time passed as happens and Mr. Allen found he needed the privy. He was grateful to be directed to this. Relieved, you might say. Mr. Allen discovered on entering the water closet that the only decoration therein was a portrait of George Washington. Ethan Allen done what he came to do and returned to the drawing room. His host and the others were disappointed when he didn't mention Washington's portrait. And finally his lordship couldn't resist and asked Mr. Allen had he noticed it. The picture of Washington. He had. Well what did he think of its placement? Did it seem appropriately located to Mr. Allen? And Mr. Allen said it did. The host was astounded. "Appropriate? George Washington's likeness in a water closet?" "Yes," said Mr. Allen, "where it will do good service. The world knows nothing will make an Englishman shit quicker than the sight of George Washington." I love that story.
