Best Actor 2012 Oscar Goes To...

So, after years of being in development and losing original star, Liam Neeson, in the process, Speilberg's Lincoln is finally filming. And some brave person has given us a first look of new star, Daniel Day-Lewis, in Honest Abe make-up. Apparently, he took a picture of DDL while at a restaurant in Virginia and posted it on twitter:
I wonder if those jeans and grandpa sneakers are period...

Looks pretty good even off the set. Which makes sense because DDL is notorious for going all crazy Method. According to Jeff Sneider at Variety, the actor hasn't stopped with the Lincoln accent since March and his real name doesn't even appear on call sheets. Intense. But, that's how you win a third Best Actor, folks. And you really have to be at that level in your career to be so committed. Can you imagine if say, Channing Tatum, did this kind of behavior? No one would stand for it. (Although, Chan, if you would care to stay in character from Magic Mike I'm sure no one would object.)
The film also stars Sally Field as Mary Todd Lincoln, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tommy Lee Jones, James Spader, Lee Pace, John Hawkes, Jackie Earle Haley, and bunch of other fancy people. It is scheduled to open in late 2012.
