Michigan man takes on a role that may go down in political history

Jeff Daniels maybe be best known for his role in the cult classic movie Dumber and Dumber. Or maybe you recognize him as a Central Michigan Grad, that moved back his home town of  Chelsea Michigan and opened the Purple Rose Theater. Now though, President Trumps Presidency will be attached to Jeff's name.

The Detroit Free Press has reported that Mr. Daniels, will star as former FBI chief in an upcoming miniseries adaptation of Comey's memoir, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership." Production is supposed to begin in November. Comey was fired by President Donald Trump in 2017.

The film will not be hitting the big screen but the small screen. It has not been decided whether the limited CBS Studios series will air on Showtime, CBS All Access or potentially both.

No matter where it is shown I believe it will have a successful viewing!
