For the television adaptation based on Gore Vidal's historical novel, the superb Sam Waterston owns the title role. "Lincoln was both 'Honest Abe' and this terrible, sneaky, wild cracker-barrel politician," Waterston said. "There is a place where those two things...meet. He was honest in his intent and wily in his practice."
