** Creator/LiamNeeson was attached to play Lincoln through most of the film's development, but dropped out in January 2010, believing he had become too old to play the part. In a curious twist, Creator/DanielDayLewis was cast as Fr. Ferreira in Creator/MartinScorsese's ''Film/{{Silence}}'', the role that Neeson eventually took when ''that project'' got stalled.

** The film was initially conceived as a miniseries covering the entirety of Lincoln's presidency. Spielberg and Tony Kushner ultimately decided it would be easier to focus on the struggle over the 13th Amendment.

* HeyItsThatGuy: As noted above there's too many to list, though the brief appearance of [[TheForceAwakens Kylo Ren]] apparently living another life as a Union telegraph operator, who talked with Lincoln, (and also wore all-over black clothing), stands out.



* HeyItsThatGuy: Fans of ''Series/TheWire'' will recognize Davide Costabile (Thomas Klebanow), Boris [=McGiver=] (Lieutenant Marimow), and Bill Raymond (The Greek) as James Ashley, Alexander Coffroth and Schuyler Colfax, respectively.
