To start off a busy day of premiere events for the Steven Spielberg-directed Lincoln, Daniel Day-Lewis came to NPR for an All Things Considered interview about playing the title role. The Oscar-winning actor talked to Host Melissa Block about storytellers, talking to himself in President Abraham Lincoln's voice and the process of humanizing a man who has been so mythologized.

Field Notes: Day-Lewis arrived early for his interview, has a firm handshake and loves NPR.

Daniel Day-Lewis for president, anyone?
