This week on The Treatment, Elvis welcomes Emmy-award winning actor Jeff Daniels. Daniels’ newest project is the Showtime miniseries “The Comey Rule” based on former FBI director James Comey’s book “A Higher Loyalty.” Daniels talks about how his role as Will McAvoy in HBO's "The Newsroom," opened up a new phase in his career as a leading actor. He also discusses the power of stillness in some of his most recent roles, and he tells Elvis about a memorable backstage meeting with Justin Timberlake during his run as Atticus Finch in "To Kill a Mockingbird" on Broadway. And Daniels talks about why he only wants five words or less from a director.
