‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ was never on Jeff Daniels’ school curriculum. Now he’s playing Atticus Finch in Aaron Sorkin’s Broadway adaptation.
Jeff said “Simon and Schuster”, I’m sure he MEANT “Wayne and Shuster” , the Canadian sketch comedy team that was in that same theater when it was HQ to the Ed Sullivan Show so many times it seemed like they had something on Ed.
Hell yeah, got some Yes or No going on for the walk-in music. I love having Batiste as the bandleader for this show, he’s always sneaking in standards!
I assume not having read “To Kill a Mockingbird” in school while growing up in the U.S. is similar to not having read “Faust” when growing up in Germany. Because that’s me. Never read it, never seen the play.
Jeff Daniels in his Corduroy Shirt and I’m suddenly all FanGirl… Yes! and”Then one morning a little Girl stopped and looked straight into Corduroy’s bright eyes. “Oh, Mommy!” she said. “Look! There’s the very Bear I’ve always wanted.”
Well the alternative to that ending would be to cry from laughing. I mean the line will sound fucked up but at least you’ll sort of look the part.
Jeff Daniels was also Lt. Col. Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain in Gettysburg/Gods and Generals
Jeff Daniels was on ‘Newsroom’ – worth watching the part in the pilot with the segment about ‘America the greatest country in the world’ – relevant to todays USA.
Refreshing to see intelligence on screen

I needed this, almost as much as i need a new season of The Newsroom. :S **almost**
Why can I only ever remember either Jeff Bridges or Jeff Daniels’ name, but not both at the same time? It’s as though the act of remembering one blocks the other. Somewhat irritating and alarming, both
I will say this – this year Colbert has become an go to interviewer. He lays back big time and his guests does it too in response. It just feels like you see actual friends talking in party in some corner.
“It’s true your honor”…
Pencile Dick IS a Legend.
6:30 – wait, Stephen writes his own monologues? (I assume that is what he is insinuating)
I never would have thought to cast Daniels as my beloved Atticus Finch & yet the moment Stephen said it, my brain went, “Perfect! I can totally see that now!” Break a leg, Mr. Daniels!
Brillant human being and a great actor ✌😊
You forgot Gettysburg!!! He was so awesome as COL Chamberlain!
I still say that Daniels peak performance was as Colonel Lawrence Chamberlain. Damn he made that man of history come alive once again. (In the movies “Gettysburg” and “Gods and generals”)
jeff daniels is one of those actors that everyone likes
