Jeff Daniels in Broadway's 'To Kill a Mockingbird' - First Look Pics!

Jeff Daniels is bringing the classic role of Atticus Finch to life on stage in the new Broadway play To Kill a Mockingbird, based on the beloved novel by Harper Lee.

Aaron Sorkin adapted the book for the stage and the play has its official opening night on Broadway this week.

Jeff recently told Deadline that Aaron offered him the role while watching a screening of the movie Jobs two years ago. But, he had never read the book!

“Of course I wanted it. But I said to him, ‘so I should read the book? If you make me read the book then you’re committed, Aaron.’ He said, ‘Yes, Jeff, read the book,’” he said.

On not reading the book, he said, “It wasn’t on our high school curriculum and I had just never gotten around to reading it. We had ‘Lord of the Flies,’ we had read that.”

Jeff Daniels‘ appearance on Conan took a surprise turn during last night’s (April 17) episode!

The 63-year-old actor came on to promote his new Hulu series The Looming Tower, but then his buddy Jim Carrey surprised him on stage and the interview quickly devolved into a special reunion for the Dumb and Dumber co-stars.
