About Jeff Daniels
Jeff Daniels is probably best known to American audiences as a film, television and stage actor, from his slapstick escapades with Jim Carrey in Dumb and Dumber, to his critically acclaimed and award-winning portrayal of news anchor Will McAvoy on the hit HBO series The Newsroom.
Most don’t realize that besides his acting career Daniels is also a playwright and director who founded the Purple Rose Theatre Company in his hometown of Chelsea, Michigan, as well as a talented musician, lyricist and storyteller, with nearly four hundred songs, three hundred live gigs and engagements, and five albums to his name, his songwriting continually drawing favorable comparisons to Arlo Guthrie, John Prine and the late Steve Goodman. From hilarity to heartbreak, from the absurd to the profound, Daniels often draws his keen observations from real events, using life’s situations as both inspiration and rich material for his musical insights.
