Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln

Oscar-winning star looks amazingly similar to iconic American president

Daniel Day-Lewis has been spotted in full Abraham Lincoln make-up - and his resemblance of the iconic 16th President of the USA is uncanny.

The Hollywood actor was snapped by Twitter user Michael Phillips (@uvamichael) whilst taking a break from filming Steven Spielberg's new biopic ‘Lincoln’.

Although the actor is not in full presidential attire and is just sitting in a cafe, he still looks amazingly similar to the to iconic American president.

Even without the coat, suit and signature top hat, it’s still pretty easy to imagine what Day-Lewis’ incarnation of the character will look like. It's the beard that does it.

As the film has been shooting since October, you might have expected to have seen more on-set paparazzi shots from the film, but almost all filming has been indoors.

Set for release in December 2012, the film follows Lincoln in the last few months of his presidency as he guides the North to victory in the American Civil war.

Real thing... Abraham Lincoln

History buffs will remember that Lincoln was assassinated by confederate sympathiser John Wilkes Booth at Ford's Theatre in 1865.

Based partially on the Doris Kearns Goodwin book ‘Team of Rivals’, Daniel Day-Lewis is supported by one of the best casts in recent memory including (deep breath) Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, David Strathairn, Jackie Earle Haley, and Jared Harris.

This was a great triumph for Dan-day-Lew, but Sally Field also turned out be a good choice for the Mrs (even though chronologically she was too old for the part):

the biggest inaccuracies I can think of were found in the depiction of W.N. Bilbo and his cohorts
