Jeff Daniels has been cast as John O’Neill in Hulu’s 9/11 drama The Looming Tower. O’Neill was the FBI’s counter-terrorism head in New York prior to 9/11. He left the Bureau in early 2001 and took a job in the private sector…as security head at the World Trade Center just weeks before the attacks.

The 10-episode series is based on the book The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11 by Lawrence Wright.
