“The guy’s already a lame duck, so why wait?”[HuffPo]

Lincoln won a lot of praise from critics and audiences alike, so it makes sense that director Steven Spielberg is planning to make a movie on the current POTUS (well, not really, actually). But he did joke at this weekend’s White House Correspondent’s Dinner that he would like to make a movie about Obama . . . if Daniel Day-Lewis was ready to take on the title role.

No word on who Spielberg wants to play Michelle Obama (Amy Poehler?) but he did say he wanted Tracy Morgan to play Joe Biden.

Now that’s inspired casting.
