Jeff Daniels

Actor; Best Known for the HBO Series "The Newsroom" and "Dumb & Dumber"

Jeff Daniels Biography

Jeff Daniels made his film debut in the critically acclaimed 1981 film "Ragtime," but it was his roles in "The Purple Rose of Cairo" and "Something Wild" that put him on the mao. He received Golden Globe nominations for both performances.

The 1990s brought more success for Daniels, and he started the new decade in a new direction with the horror comedy "Arachnophobia." Daniels performance in the epic TV miniseries "Gettysburg" also won him many accolades.

No one could have predicted that Daniels would segue from playing a Civil War figure to playing Harry Dunne in 1994’s smash comedy hit "Dumb & Dumber," but the move was career gold for Daniels, as his and Jim Carrey’s slapstick movie made nearly $250 million worldwide, propelling Daniels into the spotlight yet again.

In 1991, switching gears once more, Daniels founded the not-for-profit Purple Rose Theater Company in Chelsea, Michigan. Since its founding, the company has produced more than ten of Daniels' own plays, and he serves as its executive director.

Daniels began choosing very diverse roles in the next stage of his career, such as appearing in Clint Eastwood's "Blood Work" and as Ed Harris' former lover in "The Hours."

Roles in the TV-movie "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" and the films "Because of Winn-Dixie," "Good Night and Good Luck" and "The Squid and the Whale" kept Daniels’ fans occupied throughout the rest of the decade.

The next decade would bring another first for the actor: the lead role in a TV series. With HBO’s dramatic series "The Newsroom," Daniels entered uncharted territory, and his first foray into a starring role in a TV show garnered critical attention even before it aired. He went on to earn an Emmy Award for his work on the series in 2013.

He recently starred in HBO's Emmy-nominated mini-series, "The Looming Tower," a historical drama about the rivalry between the CIA and FBI which set the stage for the events of 9/11.

When Daniels is not appearing on TV or in films, he is playing music, a hobby in which he has enmeshed himself his entire life. He has released several albums, the proceeds of which go to funding his Purple Rose Theater.
