Jeff Daniels is best known for playing dorks or hapless nice guys in films such as Something Wild, Terms of Endearment, and Dumb & Dumber. His best film seems to be Woody Allen's The Purple Rose of Cairo, in which Daniels played dual roles and won rave reviews. He founded a theater company in his hometown of Chelsea, Michigan, and named it after that film.

Daniels himself has written eight of the theater's plays.
