First Day Lewis Lincoln pic released

Film fans are getting their first glimpse of Daniel Day Lewis as Abraham Lincoln.

The 55-year-old bears an uncanny resemblance to America's 16th president in a photo released by Disney.

The actor plays him in Steven Spielberg's upcoming film 'Lincoln', which is due for release here early next year.

Day Lewis is called 'Mr President' on the set by director Steven Spielberg and his fellow cast and crew.

"I was calling [all] the actors by their character names," Spielberg said. "That was something I felt was important to establish a little authenticity, maybe even more for me than for them."
