    He’s way to fat in the face to play Lincoln. Wasn’t he a tall thin man. This guy sure isnt.

    The book wasn’t good enough for an unknown to pull off, I can save my money I have no clue who he is and now I don’t have to go see it, weird that IMDB still has Eric Bana as Lincoln on their officiel page.

    He was great in Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson. I don’t think anyone will ultimately be disappoined in the selection. And he is not fat – he’s fine!

    He looks like nothing like Abe. Horrible choice. His face is too wide.

    Anyone who doesn’t think Ben’s a good choice, obviously hasn’t seen Ben as Andrew Jackson in Bloody Bloody (or any of his other work). This isn’t Daniel Day Lewis serious stuff, Ben’s made for this role (& he’s gorgeous BTW).
