After receiving critical praise including 12 Oscar nominations for his Presidential biopic Lincoln last year (read our review here), a movie containing an astonishing performance by the great Daniel Day-Lewis, Steven Spielberg is obviously on the lookout for what film to do next. As this video shows he has found that project – an Obama biopic… starring Daniel-Day Lewis. Why not? He’s only one of the greatest living actors (perhaps even the greatest)!
Of course this is a joke video (created for the 2013 White House Correspondents dinner) but it’s great to see that Spielberg can poke fun at himself and his previous ultra-serious project. The best thing about the video is that President Obama himself has participated, poking fun at himself, too, including his appearance and way of speaking. It shows both men have a real sense of humour and that it’s not all about serious, uplifting speeches.
Check out the very funny video below and let us know what you think of it in the comments section:
