The other day I read that Stephen Spielberg is set to begin filming Team of Rivals based on the Doris Kearns Goodwin book next fall. Originally, Liam Neeson was to play the coveted role, but since he changed his mind, Daniel Day-Lewis will star in the movie which will have a late 2012 release.
Today is also the birthday of my godchiild. . . Happy Birthday, KMR!
