Steven Spielberg Debuts New ‘Obama’ Footage at White House Correspondents’ Dinner…Wait, What?
While ‘Lincoln‘ might not have taken home the Oscar for Best Picture, it was considered one of the best films of the year by many a critic, mainly for Daniel Day-Lewis‘ exceptional performance as Honest Abe. In light of the film’s success, what is its director Steven Spielberg planning as a follow-up?
During Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, President Barack Obama revealed the first behind-the-scenes footage from Spielberg’s next project, ‘Obama,’ which re-teams him with…Day-Lewis in the title role? Take a look…
Gotcha! Obama has always had a great sense of humor, which was on display during last night’s WHCD, for which Conan O’Brien hosted. Though the comedian got a lot of laughs with bits on Joe Biden, Chris Christie, e-mails and Twitter hashtags, it was Obama who stole the show.
One of the most talked-about moments of the evening, in addition to the President’s comedic bits, was the debut of this behind-the-scenes-type look at Spielberg’s spoof movie ‘Obama,’ showing off our leader’s comedic chops and acting skills.
