CraveOnline: When you disagree with Will, does that make it harder or juicier for you?
Jeff Daniels: No, you can’t disagree with a character. That’s one of the tricks. Like Squid and the Whale, did you see that? He was right. No, Bernard is right about everything. He didn’t wreck the marriage. He did. He’s got a great relationship with his kids and it’s a left handed desk, what’s your problem? That’s how you have to do it. That’s how you play killers. That’s how you play Bernard. That’s how you play Will. He knows he’s got issues but he’s right. I never disagree with him.
CraveOnline: Is Will McAvoy the role of a lifetime?
Jeff Daniels: It is. The creative challenge I have at 57-years-old. there are guys my age who are scrambling just to get a job anywhere. And to have Aaron Sorkin, one of the best we’ve got, tailoring a leading role for you at a network that is known for its creative support and freedom, it’s gold. It’s just gold.
