After the success of Lincoln, Steven Spielberg decided to move to another biopic about a President. With President Barack Obama being in the media spotlight so often, Spielberg decided that his next film should surround his presidency. With Daniel Day-Lewis being such a versatile actor, Spielberg saw no reason to cast anyone else as the lead role. Watch the video below to hear Spielberg’s thoughts on the upcoming film and see Daniel Day-Lewis’ prepare for the role.
Well Spielberg won’t actually be making the film but it was pretty funny to see President Obama going along with the joke. I just thought this was too funny not to post. Regardless of your political stance, you have to admit this guy does have a pretty good sense of humor.
