It's not uncommon for a poacher or hunter to receive harsh criticism and public shaming, but does it count when the animal in question goes WAY beyond the endangered species list?

Daniel Day-Lewis channels the Great Emancipator for Steven Spielberg's Lincoln, in theaters November 9 -- just in time for awards season.

Entertainment Weekly offers a peek on set:

There are numerous reports about Day-Lewis attempting to fully immerse himself in the mindset of someone who lived during the mid-1860s by avoiding the trappings of 21st — not to mention 20th — century life during the shoot, but Spielberg says his star never delved so deeply into character that he refused to acknowledge the modern world. "Daniel was always conscious of his contemporary surroundings," Spielberg says. "Daniel never went into a fugue state. ... All that stuff is just more about gossip than it is about technique." People on set did refer to the actor as "Mr. President," including Spielberg, but the director says that was just part of the effort to maintain atmosphere. "I was calling [all] the actors by their character names," he says. "That was something I felt was important to establish a little authenticity, maybe even more for me than for them."
