Watch: SAG Conversations with Jeff Daniels

Jeff Daniels might be the definition of “acting range.” He’s done theater, television, and film in both dramatic and comedic roles, ranging from historical epics like Gettysburg and over-the-top comedies like Dumb & Dumber. And if he wasn’t already talented enough, he’s also a recording artist.

But like most actors, Daniels got his start on the stage and he has been appearing on Broadway stages since the late 1970s. Currently, he is appearing in Blackbird on Broadway in a Tony-nominated role.

Daniels sat for a career-spanning conversation with’s Richard Ridge. The conversation is presented by the SAG-AFTRA Foundation and the New School College of Performing Arts School of Drama.
