Steven Spielberg presents, ‘Obama,’ starring Daniel Day Lewis

‘I mean the guy is already a lame duck, so why wait?’


 

After the success of Lincoln, director Steven Spielberg has decided to tackle another president bio-pic: Obama.

“I mean the guy is already a lame duck, so why wait?” Asks Spielberg in a satirical video created for the White House Correspondents’ dinner that took place on Apr. 27.

Only one actor has the chops to play Obama: And that’s three-time Academy Award winner Daniel Day Lewis: “Was it hard playing Obama?” Asks Obama himself, in character as Day Lewis.  “I’ll be honest, yeah, it was.”

Watch the President’s full speech at the event, where he pokes fun of everyone from CNN and Fox News to Congress and himself.
