Daniel Day-Lewis in full costume on the set of Lincoln

Earlier today I sort of pissed and moaned about all the boring biopics Hollywood makes, but I don’t really include Spielberg’s upcoming Lincoln in that complaint, if only because MOTHERF*CKING TOP HATS ARE THE MOTHERF*CKING SH*T, SON. Anyway, thanks to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, we have this latest shot of Daniel Day-Lewis going full top hat with Señor Spielbergo. If I had to guess how it went down, I bet the incorrigible method actor Day-Lewis was in the middle of some big speech, like, “I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering…”

And Spielberg was like, “Hey, Rail-Splitter, could you just put in your goddamned lunch order already? The crew’s starving.”

That’s not an extra on Spielberg’s right, by the way, he has a special assistant who bayonets poor people any time they get too close.
