Watch Daniel Day-Lewis Become President Obama for Steven Spielberg's 'Obama'

Watch Daniel Day-Lewis Become President Obama for Steven Spielberg's 'Obama'

Apr 29, 2013

Considering the success of Steven Spielberg's Lincoln, the filmmaker announced during the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner over the weekend that he would continue his streak of presidential biopics by moving on to one about the life of the current U.S. president, Barack Obama. But who do you get to play Obama? Well, of course it would be method actor Daniel Day-Lewis, whose performance as Obama in this video put together by Spielberg is pretty spot on -- to the point where you'd think Obama was actually playing himself.

Spoiler: he is.

Watch the funny spoof below, and let us note our appreciation for a president who will forever poke fun at his freakishly large ears.
