The Tony nominee dropped by Late Night with Seth Meyers to discuss "the role of a lifetime."

For seven months, Daniels has played the lead role in the Aaron Sorkin-penned adaptation of the Harper Lee novel. He has yet to miss a performance and is Tony-nominated for Best Actor in a Play.

In his chat with the late night host, the actor talked about people comparing him to Gregory Peck, the powerful impact of the show, his start as an Off-Broadway actor, and the time an audience member fell asleep.
