Jeff Daniels

Biography

JEFF DANIELS made his feature film debut in Milos Forman's Ragtime, but it was his portrayal of Debra Winger's husband in Terms of Endearment that catapulted him to stardom. Woody Allen was among the first to recognize the actor's talent and comic ability and cast Daniels in a starring role in The Purple Rose of Cairo. He then went on to star in a number of films, including Something Wild, The Butcher's Wife, Checking Out, Fly Away Home, 101 Dalmatians, Speed, Pleasantville, Arachnophobia, Gettysburg, Dumb and Dumber, Blood Work, The Hours, Gods and Generals, Imaginary Heroes and Because of Wynn-Dixie. His most recent appearances were in George Clooney's Goodnight, and Good Luck and his acclaimed role in Noah Baumbach's The Squid and the Whale, which earned him his third Golden Globe nomination as Best Actor. He was previously nominated for Jonathan Demme's Something Wild and Woody Allen's The Purpose Rose of Cairo. He will next be seen in Doug McGrath's Infamous, scheduled for an October 2006 release.
