In his latest film, The Answer Man, Jeff Daniels plays a reclusive self-help guru who’s supposed to have the answers to all of life’s questions. So at last week’s premiere of the film, we asked him about the best guidance he’s ever received. “Invest in yourself,” he told us. “My dad told me that.” Simple and sage advice, for certain, but did Daniels offer any words of wisdom to his co-stars? “He doesn’t like to mingle,” Lou Taylor Pucci told us. “He’s one of those people that doesn’t like bullshit. All he would do is crossword puzzles every day, and Sudoku, I swear.” View our Party Lines slideshow for more.
