Steven Spielberg made a good choice by picking Daniel Day-Lewis to play Abraham Lincoln in his upcoming movie. Daniel looks just like him. Unlike the president's most recent screen incarnation in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, the drama that hits theaters on November 16 focuses on the last four months of his life. Spielberg is exploring the political strategizing he undertook at the close of the Civil War to ensure that slavery would abolished forever. And lots of box office potential because the film has lots of other star power too.Tommy Lee Jonesstars as one of the president's "most engaging and challenging adversaries", while Sally Field plays Lincoln's wife and Joseph Gordon-Levitt is one of his sons.

Enjoying The Single Life
Katie Holmes likes being single. A source tells RADAR Online, “Katie is a new woman, she feels refreshed, free of Tom and doesn’t have a worry in the world. When before she used to fret if she was ever single, now she’s happy to be alone. Katie’s enjoying her independence and is working on herself right now. Tom also influenced what movies she appeared in, so she was unable to steer her career in the way she wanted to. Now, she has full control over what she wants to do and that freedom is exciting for her. It was a relief for her to be finally rid of Tom, but she was filled with some guilt over the way she did it. When she first met Tom, he whisked her off her feet and she was head over heels in love with him. But soon his controlling nature took all the fun out of their relationship. Tom had absolutely no clue that Katie had been planning an escape route for almost a year, but she felt it was the safest way for her and Suri to break free.''
