Joseph Gordon-levitt - Joseph Gordon-levitt For Lincoln Role
Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in talks to play the role of Robert Todd in Steven Spielberg's forthcoming Abraham Lincoln biopic.
Sally Field is already signed up to play Lincoln's wife Mary in the movie, which is based on the book 'Team of Rivals' by Doris Kearns Goodwin.
The project tells the tale of the president's dream of abolishing slavery and ending the civil war in the US, which ran from 1861 to 1865.
Joseph - whose last appearance in cinema was in Christopher Nolan's 'Inception' - has a number of film roles coming up over the next few years, and will soon shoot his role in forthcoming 'Batman' instalment 'The Dark Knight Rises' starring Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway.
