RE: Lincoln
This look's like a masterpiece in the making! And Daniel Day Lewis. My god! What an actor! Up there with the greats. He was simply breath-taking in There Will Be Blood and Gangs of New York, you just couldn't keep your eyes off him. And this film look's like it will be the same. Whilst great actor's like De Niro and Al Pacino have simmered down of late, and their recent outputs very poor - Daniel Day Lewis keeps going strong. He's worked with one of the finest directors of the past couple of de More

I reckon The Berg will get him back... make-up is a wonderful thing and it's not like Neeson looks his age.  More

eeson Quits Spielberg's "Lincoln" nk] Though he's been attached for many years, Liam Neeson has revealed to GMTV via Spye's no longer involved in Steven Spielberg's long-gestating "Lincoln" biopic. "I'm not actually playing Lincoln now. I was attached to it for a while, but it's now...I'm past my sell-by date" said Neeson during a talk show interview. The actor is probably referring to age - Neeson is 58 and Lincoln died at 56. The film is also a long way off from production with Tony Ku More
