Cool Videos: Watch President Obama play Daniel Day-Lewis for Steven Spielberg

Cool Videos

The annual White House Correspondents Dinner was on Saturday night and it was chock full of actors, athletes, celebrities and oh yeah, politicians. In recent years the event has been criticized for being too much about the famous faces (Lindsay Lohan was at the 2012 dinner...yikes) but I've enjoyed the different quotes and videos that have surfaced from previous dinners.

I'm sure most of you have seen this already but a video has been released that was taped for the event that has Steven Spielberg introducing his "new" movie. Inspired by his last film LINCOLN, the director has decided to do a biography on President Obama. And like LINCOLN, Daniel Day-Lewis and his fantastic method acting will be used once again to play a President of the United States. It's just too bad they couldn't actually get Daniel Day-Lewis for the video and dinner. I would give my left nut and most of the right one to see Day-Lewis play Obama à la Robert Downey Jr. in TROPIC THUNDER. So who's going to play Joe Biden? Tracy Morgan, of course.

"Why doesn't he get mad? If I was him I'd be mad all the time."

Don't forget that if you've seen an awesome video floating around online you can always contact us and it might get used for a future Cool Videos article.

Extra Tidbit: Obama may be funny but the unintentional humor that George W. Bush gave us for eight long years? Classic.

I do kind of miss those days when I couldn't wait to find out what was happening next in the real-life soap opera of DC. I pretty much hated those people (not Republicans per se, but most of the Bush cabinet), but that's not much different than a lot of the best TV shows on now, except sadly, it wasn't just good writing.

Actually, never mind... aside from Dubya's gaffes, I don't miss it at all.

Ignoring the politics and seething anger people seem to have, this was pretty funny. I've always appreciated Obama as a good sport. Maybe he should think about a career in entertainment after his presidency.

really, The Daily Show has spend almost 20 years making a career off the incompetence of the US government as a whole.

No one man is politics is incompetent, it's the group as a collective that can't get anything done

That video was made stupidly.....To kind of quote Obama.

Nothing with Obama is funny. Although he has played the biggest joke on America, well on his supporters. He actually made them think he would be good for them, but they believed that lie along with many other lies he's told.

Your rigid, humorless partisanship is giving the internet a nosebleed.

Okay, politics aside, that was hilarious. It's the kind of thing the people at Funny or Die wish they had the power to pull off.
