Robert Lincoln

    Newer Older

    I played Robert Lincoln in the movie "The Day Lincoln Was Shot." Over the weekend, I found this photograph of me that was taken during the production. It's a rough scan, but I think that gives it a bit of character.

    OscarFalcon, rustyrabbit, Anitza V, and 28 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      I watched this in American Cultures last year. The second you came on screen, I went "Hey, cool, it's Wil Wheaton!" I was sitting with some awesome dork friends, so that was alright.

      It's too bad TNT is so crap about putting their films on DVD (no VHS for me anymore).

      Good ol' Ted doesn't license his films to Canadian networks often either :(

      Someday I guess... great photo though - and I love the sepia version.

      Here's a bit of Robert Lincoln trivia for you. I read this in the wonderful book "Assassination Vacation" by Sarah Vowell, but I'm referencing it from the Wikipedia entry on Robert Lincoln:

      "There is an odd coincidence in regard to Robert Todd Lincoln and presidential assassinations. The night his father was shot, Lincoln was invited to accompany his parents to the theater, but declined. When President Garfield was shot in a Washington, D.C. train station in 1881, he was present at Garfield's invitation. When President William McKinley was shot at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, New York in 1901, Lincoln was present at McKinley's invitation. However, he was not an actual eyewitness to any of these assassinations. After McKinley's death, Lincoln let it be known that he wanted no further invitations from any US president, as three of them had invited him to be present at their assassinations."

      Wil, when I listen to Sarah Vowell's audiobook of ASSASSINATION VACATION, I picture you from this production when she talks about Robert Lincoln. (That's meant to be a compliment. :) )

      A little bit of photoshop and you can have an antique version

      This is so cool ~ must be a great feeling to be "part of history."

      i like the effect from the scan, gives it the aged look, almost virtually authentic.

      Well, I've had a crush on Abe Lincoln since I was in about 3rd grade and a crush on you since I was in about 7th grade, so I find this a pretty damned cool picture. \o/
