The world will get their chance to see Daniel Day-Lewis fill the "tall" shoes of President Abraham Lincoln this November, it has been revealed.

Day-Lewis, 55, is not the only celeb to have played the leader of America, find out who after the jump.

Many other celebrities have also played a president in movies and television and not all have been as serious as Day-Lewis' rendition has been rumored to be.

Will Ferrell played George W. Bush on Saturday Night Live and Charlie Sheen is set to play the president in a Machete sequel.

The new biographical drama, Lincoln, is directed by the iconic Steven Spielberg and will star Sally Field as Mary Todd Lincoln as well as Joseph Gordon-Levitt and James Spader.

However, while the There Will Be Blood is sure to get Oscar buzz, his Abe probably won't be as kick ass as Benjamin Walker's vampire-slaying Lincoln in Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, which is in theatre's now.
