Proving that he's becoming THE actor of his generation, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is apparently going to play Lincoln (Daniel Day-Lewis)'s son Robert Todd Lincoln. Gordon-Levitt and Day-Lewis are a perfect match, and not just because they have hyphens in their names. Can't wait to see them work together.
Also joining the cast is Tommy Lee Jones, playing Thaddeus Stevens, and Hal Holbrook, James Spader, John Hawks (awesome!), Tim Blake Nelson, Bruce McGill and Joseph Cross.
It's exciting seeing Spielberg going all out again. I know he directed Tintin a while back, but it feels like eons since I've seen a new Spielberg movie (maybe because my brain always skips over Indy 4).
What do you folks think of this cast? In Spielberg's hands, from a script by Tony Kushner, this is shaping up to be something special, I think.
