'The Newsroom': Join a live chat with Jeff Daniels on Thursday

June 12, 2013|By Yvonne Villarreal

Now, more than ever, it might be time to follow up with gruff cable newscaster Will McAvoy on why America is the greatest country in the world, right?

Join us for a live chat with "The Newsroom's" Jeff Daniels, who portrays the cantankerous TV personality in the HBO drama, on Thursday at 1 p.m. Pacific time -- and maybe he can channel Will in trying to address that. Or not.

Daniels, whose all-embracing career has mostly been set in theater and movies, gave in to the demands of a high-profile TV series when he signed on to star in the Aaron Sorkin drama, which enters its second season next month.

We'll talk to the actor about the backlash the show experienced early on, what headlines he'd like to see on the show, and his favorite McAvoy-ism.

But we encourage you to do your best MacKenzie McHale impressions and write your own questions in big letters on a paper for us to read from our computer screens -- or, take the logical approach, and type in your questions above during the chat (or now). On Thursday, you can log in above or go here to participate.
