Daniels like risky roles

Saturday, March 03, 2018

Jeff Daniels loves to take on roles where he believes he might "fail".

The 63-year-old actor stars as John O'Neill in the Hulu drama miniseries The Looming Tower, and has admitted he took on the role because doesn't want to be limited as a Hollywood star, and instead wants as much "range" as possible.

When asked how he came to land the role, Jeff said: "They sent it to me like three months before it started. I look for things that I haven't done before, where I might fail. I've been doing this for 40 years and I just don't wanna be the actor who becomes a brand: I want the range. This O'Neill was something I hadn't done before, didn't know how to do, would have to figure out how to do, which, after 40 years will keep me interested."
