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.”
