We’ve gotten our first look at Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln. He’s on location in Richmond, shooting the Steven Spielberg-directed film, “Lincoln.”

A local native Michael Phillips tweeted out this picture of Day-Lewis grabbing some food at a local restaurant. Who knew they had casual Fridays when Lincoln was president? The beard’s looking might fine, too.

Other cast members include Sally Field as Mary Todd Lincoln, Tommy Lee Jones as Thaddeus Stevens and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Robert Todd Lincoln.

The movie is scheduled to come out in late next year, around the 2012 presidential election.
