The White House held its annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner Saturday night and as the EUR reported, the President’s comedic skills were on high beam. But others wanted to get in on the fun.
Steven Spielberg was patched in for the event to talk about his new film, “Obama”. He talked about the difficulty he had in getting someone to play President Obama because he heard that he was “aloof” and he never supplied any of his “transcripts.”
But then he said he decided on Daniel Day Lewis. He said the answer was right in front of him all the time. Everyone knows that the British actor is able to morph into any character from “Hawkeye in the Last of the Mohicans to Bill the Butcher in Gangs of New York to Abraham Lincoln in Lincoln,” Spielberg explained.
Then the camera goes to an interview with Daniel Day Lewis standing in front of a mirror talking about how difficult it was to grasp President Obama’s accent. The resemblance is UNCANNY! NOT! Check out President Obama as Daniel Day Lewis.
