(CNN) – Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the third ranking House Republican, is hosting a screening for fellow GOP representatives tomorrow to watch the movie "Lincoln" - starring Daniel Day Lewis as President Abraham Lincoln - according to McCarthy's spokeswoman.

This isn't the first time McCarthy has invited his GOP colleagues to view a movie. He also held a screening of the movie "Moneyball," because his aide notes, he believes in using metrics/numbers. That movie tells the story of a baseball team's general manager assembling players using a metric-based approach.

He also raised some eyebrows for showing a violent scene in the movie "The Town" at a GOP conference meeting when leaders were discussing negotiations with Democrats.
