Jeff Daniels is set to stop by “Inside the Actors Studio,” Variety has learned. The Emmy-winning “Newsroom” alum’s episode, which will mark his first time on the Bravo series, is set for Jan. 7.

During his conversation with host James Lipton, Daniels talks about working with Aaron Sorkin, and his role of John Sculley in “Steve Jobs.” He is also promoting his upcoming Broadway run, in which he’ll star in “Blackbird” with Michelle Williams. (Previously, Daniels played the “Blackbird” role off-Broadway at the Manhattan Theater Club.) In the episode, Daniels also discusses working on stage with James Gandolfini in Broadway’s “God of Carnage.”

On the “Actors Studio” stage, Daniels surprises the audience, showing off his musical abilities, singing and playing acoustic guitar.

Prior to becoming an awards contender with “Steve Jobs” and “The Newsroom,” Daniels’ major credits included “Looper,” “Because of Winn-Dixie,” “Something Wild” and “Dumb and Dumber,” in which he famously starred alongside Jim Carrey. Currently, he also appears in “The Martian” with Matt Damon.

Over its 20-season run, “Actors Studio” has welcomed the likes of Billy Crystal, Sarah Silverman, Jim Parsons, Angelina Jolie and the late Robin Williams, just to name a few. Daniels’ costar in “Steve Jobs,” Kate Winslet, has also appeared on the show.
