Daniel Sunjata: USA Is On The Social Media Train

Posted: Updated:

Daniel Sunjata plays a government agent that fights drug trafficking on the new show "Graceland". He talked to Tony and Maria about his new series and talked about how the USA Network totally gets the power of social media...because he was live tweeting during Thursday night's episode.

He also talked about being voted on of People magazine's most beautiful people...and the razzing he got from his "Rescue me" castmates.

Fun facts about Daniel:

  • He is best known for his role as Franco Rivera in the FX television series Rescue Me.
  • He is the adopted son of a police dispatcher and a civil rights worker. He is of Irish, German, and African-American heritage.
  • Sunjata played the role of a sailor on shore leave on the first post-9/11 themed episode of Sex and The City.
  • In 2003, he won a Theatre World Award for his breakout Broadway performance as a gay Major League Baseball player who comes out to the public in Take Me Out, the Tony award-winning play, which also earned him nominations for a Tony Award and Drama Desk Award.
