Daniel Day Lewis Debuts Lincoln Look

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.

Lincoln Quotes

Abraham Lincoln: Abolishing slavery by constitutional provisions settles the fate for all coming time. Not only of the millions now in bondage, but of unborn millions to come. Two votes stand in its way. These votes must be procured.

Abraham Lincoln: You've got a night and a day and a night; several perfectly good hours! Now get the hell out of here and get them!
James Ashley: Yes. But how?
Abraham Lincoln: Buzzard's guts, man! I am the President of the United States of America! Clothed in immense power! You will procure me these votes.
