Started posting on this topic in 2008. Looks like we will finish in 2012. Egads.
Question: would you trust a jackass like this with an historical script on the complexity of Lincoln? (Brush past the intrusive ad.)
Tommy Lee Jones - as Thaddeus Stevens? Stevens was a big part of the Lincoln presidency, don't you know?
Daniel Day Lewis is apparently set to play Lincoln against Sally Field, who is maybe 50 years older than he. Director Spielberg cited Fields' ability to convey "fragility and complexity."
This has the makings of a made-for-TV movie. I don't mean that in a good way.
