Stern attended Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School, and during his time there participated in several productions, including “Promises, Promises” and “Fiddler on the Roof”. He originally applied as a lighting engineer but was then hired to become part of a production of “The Taming of the Shrew”, which helped him decide to fully pursue a career in acting. He dropped out of high school and moved to New York to take acting lessons at HB Studios. After his studies, he would begin participating in various stage productions and would perform at numerous theatres.

His film debut came in 1979 in the film “Breaking Away”, which lead to more opportunities such as “It’s My Turn” and “Diner” for which he earned a bit of recognition. Afterwards, he became part of the horror film “C.H.U.D”, and would join Woody Allen in two films, including “Stardust Memories”. Stern started to focus on comedic roles, as seen in “Home Alone” and “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York”. He was invited to continue as a part of the “Home Alone” franchise but he declined. He then became the narrator of the television series “The Wonder Years”, in which he also played the adult version of the character Kevin Arnold. In the late 1990s, Daniel tried his hand at more serious roles with “Very Bad Things” which stars Cameron Diaz and Christian Slater, but also lent his voice for the animated television series “Dilbert”.

Daniel then moved to directing, working on a few episodes of “The Wonder Years” before making his first feature film, “Rookie of the Year”. He also became a director of a few episodes of “Manhattan”, and after these projects, Daniel created the show “Danny” in which he also starred and wrote. He also worked on writing for theatre, including the hit production of “Barbra’s Wedding”.

For his personal life, it is known that Stern also works as an artist and specializes in bronze sculpture. He has a lot of work that is now displayed in public and has also done a lot of exhibitions. He has been married to Laure Mattos since 1980, and together they started a few charitable institutions. Stern is well known for his philanthropy, creating the Malibu Foundation for Youth and Families. He also created The Malibu Boys and Girls Club, and the Malibu Arts Commission.He also teaches Media Literacy, and owns a 500-acre cattle ranch in California.

1[on working with Sidney Lumet on "Daniel"] Lumet's a genius, an absolute genius. He's so professional. He knows exactly what he wants. Everything works like clockwork and you're out of there in record time.
2[in 1983] I remember after graduating high school I got a part in a play with the Washington Shakepeare Festiva, a little part. But I remember thinking, this would be a great way of making a living... to be an actor. I never really thought I'd make a lot of money at it. I knew I wanted to act when I was around 14. The only other thing I can really remember wanting to do besides acting was a gas station attendant. At the time that seemed like a great job - wash the windows, pump the gas - it looks so cool coming home with black hands. There's a natural transition, from wanting to be a gas station attendant to being an actor, right?
3[in 1983] I want to work in the movies for the next 50 years. I feel I can find my place, get the parts I like, and just keep working. It might all end tomorrow, and I try to remember that. Bt so far it's been fantastic.
4My life is fairly normal. I didn't wake up one morning and find out that I'm suddenly a star, with people clamoring at me. I feel like I'm moving up the ladder just a little, which is fine.
