Daniel Day-Lewis Retires from Acting

Recommended Posts

Mister Pink

From Variety:


The 60-year-old star, who has played presidents, writers, and gang leaders in a career that has spanned four decades, has one final film awaiting release, an untitled drama set in the world of high fashion. It is scheduled to hit theaters on December 25, 2017 and reunites him with Paul Thomas Anderson, who directed Day-Lewis to a best actor Oscar in 2007’s “There Will Be Blood.” Day-Lewis intends to help promote the movie, according to a person familiar with his plans.
He did not give a reason for his retirement. In a statement, Day-Lewis’ spokeswoman, Leslee Dart, confirmed the news: “Daniel Day-Lewis will no longer be working as an actor. He is immensely grateful to all of his collaborators and audiences over the many years. This is a private decision and neither he nor his representatives will make any further comment on this subject. ”
At least we have one more new performance to look forward to and it's a Paul Thomas Anderson film to boot. Way too early to predict but with the December release date and PTA being a 6-time Oscar nominee with 4 of his films (Boogie Nights, Magnolia and There Will Be Blood and Inherent Vice) I can see PTA's film going for an Oscar of some sorts. We'll see.
Sad news. Day-Lewis never sold out to do a million films, he is one of the greats, picking and choosing roles carefully. Hard to say which is my favourite performance by him.
Christy Brown in My Left Foot.. or Bill The Butcher in Gangs of New York, There Will Be Blood.

Great joke going around that he's preparing for a role as a very famous and serious method actor who retires.

He's drank one too many milkshakes. He seems to adopt the Miyazaki method of ''quitting'' so we'll see.

I hope he reconsiders. He's probably the best actor alive, even if he's not most people's favorite actor.

A fine actor who has a legacy of great performances to look back upon.

I can't say that it is surprising since he has been having these long breaks between films since the late 90's. However in his case it's more about quality rather than quantity. In my book There Will Be Blood is his most compelling work but The Boxer comes pretty close. All in all he's one of the best actors of all time and definitely one of the most dedicated. Hopefully he comes back later to do one more great role. Then again it's understandable if he wants to enjoy retirement and peaceful living in his later years.

Well, his choices...that being said, he is indeed quite the good actor in my book so he has a lot to look back on :)
