The internet went collectively nuts over a candid photo of Daniel Day Lewis sporting Abraham Lincoln’s beard, so I wonder what will happen now that we’ve got a photo of the actor in full Lincoln regalia, hat and all. The effect probably won’t be as great, actually, since that first look was really the crucial one. Regardless, here’s the first good image of Daniel Day-Lewis on the set of Steven Spielberg‘s Lincoln, which has now been shooting for a little bit. The actor looks magnificent as the 16th President of the United States, but I don’t think anyone expected anything less.

We don’t yet have a release date for Lincoln, but it should hit in late 2012. The cast also includes Sally Field, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tommy Lee Jones, John Hawkes, Hal Holbrook, James Spader, Tim Blake Nelson, Bruce McGill, Joseph Cross, David Strathairn, Walton Goggins, Lee Pace, Jackie Earle Haley and David Oyelowo.
