Jeff Daniels is Glad 'The Newsroom' Isn't Going On 'Too Long'

Jeff Daniels is Glad 'The Newsroom' Isn't Going On 'Too Long'

Jeff Daniels poses with co-star Jim Carrey as they arrive at a photo call for their film Dumb and Dumber To at The Peninsula Hotel on Tuesday (November 25) in Paris, France.

The 59-year-old actor recently opened up about the ending of his HBO show The Newsroom.

“It’s my first television series, and while we could have gone more seasons, three felt right. It felt like we told the story, and we didn’t have to suffer through what every TV series does if it goes on too long,” Jeff told Zap2It.com. “When is too long? When is one too many seasons? When have you told all the stories you can tell, and Season 6 wasn’t as good as Season 4 or Season 5?”

He added, “While it would have been great to go on, we don’t have to deal with that. We’ve put what we hope are three really strong seasons together and walked away. It feels like more a long movie shoot for me, or closing a Broadway play.”

    There must be something I’m not getting ” and we didn’t have to suffer through what every TV series does if it goes on too long” … you would think shows that last a while aren’t “suffering”????

    Both guys look great! I saw ‘Dumb and Dumber’ perhaps dozens of times, really not sure how the sequel may look.

  • LOS ANGELES

    The sequel is more unwanted unfunny britshit junk transposed into a setting within America, which explains why it doesn’t work right there. You don’t need anything more than that. The little britshit bawstawds failed but will likely claim success through their bogus box-office attendance figures. Go figure.

    Jeff Daniels says he’s Glad ‘The Newsroom’ Isn’t Going On ‘Too Long’…

    while on a press junket for the sequel to a movie he made 20 years ago. No irony there.

    Dumb and Dumber To was really funny. A very solid follow up to the original. The trailers had me worried that this was going to be a weak re-tread of the first but thankfully it wasn’t. Good stuff, hope they do a third.
