Josh Lucas To Please His History Teacher By Playing Lindbergh And Maybe Lincoln
Not content sticking to one historically significant character per year, Lucas is also in the running to be no less than Honest Abe himself in the much-anticipated film adaptation of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Lucas seems like an odd pick to play Lincoln, but the entire premise of the movie seems odd, so who knows what will work and what won't.
Further solidifying the assertion that Lucas has caught "Lincoln Fever," Lucas' next role will be opposite Matthew McConaughey in The Lincoln Lawyer, about a lawyer who practices out of the back of his Lincoln automobile.
