Had he not gone into acting, he would likely be working in his hometown of Chelsea, Michigan, with his siblings at the Chelsea Lumber Company, owned by the Daniels' family. The Chelsea Lumber Co. provided all the building materials for the construction of his Purple Rose Theater.

Jeff Daniels in Eine herzliche Affäre (1990)

In the 2013 Hollywood Reporter Drama Actor Emmy Roundtable, Jeff Daniels was asked to tell a story about his worst audition moment ever. He recounted his first meeting with famed casting agent Juliet Taylor; he had been told to lie on his resume and say that he had studied with the acting teacher Sandy Meisner, so when Taylor asked Daniels about studying with Meisner, Daniels said "yeah, she was great." Sanford "Sandy" Meisner was a man.

Has twice appeared as a character in a story-within-a-story - The Purple Rose of Cairo (1985) and Pleasantville (1998). In each case the "fictional" character interacts with the story's "real" characters, and in each case he experiences a transition from a limited black-and-white existence to an existence filled with color and new sensations.

Is the proud owner of a Gulf Stream Tour Master he calls "The Bus". Occasionally when he pulls into his driveway after a tiresome journey, he'll sleep in the bus for the night. He doesn't believe that you can call yourself a true American until you've been behind the wheel of an RV.
