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

  • cady

    YES! benjamin is absolutely fantastic. can’t wait to see his career really take off after this. congrats to him!

  • Vesper

    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.

    way more excited to see Daniel Day Lewis play Lincoln. Talk about epic!

  • Lucky17

    Love him! So excited.

  • middle-aged hippie

    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!

  • sarafina56

    Yes he is fine and a good Actor……..

  • Iffy Miffy

    He as Lincoln?! Total miss as far as physical looks go. Ha ha ha, must have been cast by a blind man…

  • Tom

    He is a good enought actor and I dont care who plays the lead role in any movie. If it is a good all around film who gives a shit.

  • Jordy

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

  • GreenCAT

    It should’ve been James D’arcy!

  • Ashley

    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).
