THE NEWSROOM star JEFF DANIELS reveals his down home secret.  He’s a “redneck trucker” in his heart!

 Despite playing pithy a TV anchorman on Aaron Sorkin’s HBO hit “The Newsroom”, Daniels would rather drive than fly.


The Hollywood Reporter divulged that instead of jetting from his home in Michigan to attend the preem for the hit HBO show Daniels drove more than 2,000 miles in his 42 foot long silver RV.


And he regularly makes the road warrior commute to go back and forth while shooting the TV series. 

“I don’t think you can call yourself and American till (sic) you’ve been behind the wheel of an RV,” Daniels said.


According to THR, Daniels starred in a 2006 comedy “RV” and did a tour of Michigan in his RV playing guitar and belting his own homespun country tunes.  He doesn’t record them – YET
