Roles in the TV-movie The Five People You Meet in Heaven (2004) and the films Because of Winn-Dixie (2005), Good Night and Good Luck (2005) and The Squid and the Whale (2005) 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 (2012– ), 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.
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.
