A casting tip, Mr Spielberg, free of charge*

“I’m not actually playing Lincoln now. I was attached to it for a while, but it’s now I’m past my sell-by date.”— Liam Neeson, GMTV
Three words: Daniel. Day. Lewis.

*Not that Spielberg ever listens to me when it comes to casting. I told him not to put Ted Danson in Saving Private Ryan. No dice. I warned him about Mathew McConaghey in Amistaad. He ignored me. And I'm not saying I-told-you so about Oprah in The Color Purple because strictly speaking I didn't actually say anything. I could tell from the look in his eyes he was not a man to be swayed. But I thought it. *Sigh*
