    With his recent GoldDerby interview now posted, I was curious what everyone had to say about veteran performer Jeff Daniels. At over 45 years in the business, the man has left a number of indelible impresssions, ranging from immensely serious fare to iconic comedies. But what is his greatest role?

    Apologies to anyone who feels like a great performance has been excluded. Looking through his filmography, I tried to narrow things to down to *most* of his more famous appearances, but Daniels has probably done enough work to fill at least 2 threads. Feel free to highlight an omitted film below.

    Some other roles include:

    Arachnophobia (1990)
    Fly Away Home (1996)
    The Crossing (2000)
    The Hours (2002)
    Good Night, and Good Luck (2005)
    Infamous (2006)
    The Lookout (2007)
     
    And several others..

    A wonderful actor who raises the level of every film he is in….
    As a supporting actor…
    his Flap Horton in Term of Endearment is my favorite..
    As a lead actor…..The Purple Rose of Cairo is , for me ,is above the rest…
    The Squid and The Whale is my 3rd favorite performance and IMO
    Jeff Daniels should have 3 academy award nominations…
    He currently has none…the academy has missed the boat….

    The Purple Rose of Cairo was a masterpiece in every single way and considering he was the male lead, he is a big reason for that. His dual role works remarkably well. His was also wonderful in The Squid and the Whale and good in Terms of Endearment…..as for Dumb & Dumber, he did well with such a different role for him.
