Senators to Screen 'Lincoln' with Daniel Day-Lewis, Steven Spielberg Tonight

As lawmakers struggle to solve the fiscal cliff, they're set for a movie night tonight in the Senate.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.,will meet with the cast and crew of "Lincoln" including Director Steven Spielberg and actor Daniel Day-Lewis in the Capitol before the special showing.

Then each senator, along with their spouse, will be invited to watch the film in the Capitol Visitors Center within the Capitol Complex.

The film's release was delayed until after the 2012 election - but DreamWorks still scheduled a special extended two-minute TV ad during the commercial break right after the first presidential debate.

Reid, a Democrat, is a huge fan of the biopic about the most famous Republican president.
