Lincoln Daniel Day-Lewis

Of course you do. We’ve been reading your totally healthy Lincoln/Day-Lewis slash fiction, and we can tell you’ve been aching for this moment all year. Entertainment Weekly has debuted the first glossy image of Daniel Day-Lewis as the 16th president for Steven Spielberg‘s Lincoln.

The resemblance is terrifyingly accurate. However, according to Spielberg, reports that Day-Lewis lost himself in the 19th century for the role are not. “Daniel was always conscious of his contemporary surroundings,” Spielberg said. “Daniel never went into a fugue state. He did not channel Lincoln. All that stuff is just more about gossip than it is about technique.”

That’s fortunate because, as Breaking Bad fans know, a fugue state would have left Day-Lewis naked save for a top hat trying to buy snacks at a convenience store on the outskirts of Nowhere, New Mexico.

Check out the full image below followed by a side-by-side comparison:
