Daniel himself wasn't so lucky this time: no nomination for his role on Broadway. I had been hoping he would be nominated. He deserves it. He workes so hard..

Well then now. Celebuzz asked him for his reaction on the Tony nominations and this is what he had to say:
"Obviously, it would be incredible to be nominated, but I care much more about John Larroquette getting a nod for Best Actor [in a Featured Role in a Musical.] I’d love him to win because he’s so brilliant in our show,”
“It is disappointing if you’re not nominated, but it is such a strong year for musicals on Broadway and there are others who are very worthy of getting the nods,” he added.
The Tony Awards air 12th June, 8/7c, on CBS.
