In true Daniel 'Method' Day Lewis form, the actor apparently spent months preparing to play Abe Lincoln. There was talks of hiding himself in a cupboard for months and all sorts. DDL didn't even want his ACTUAL name on the call sheet and refused to speak in his own accent for the duration.
Hopefully it'll be worth it.
Directed by Steven Speilberg and co-starring Sally Field and Tommy Lee-Jones, the biopic hits cinema's this November.
