John Francis Daley is the son of R.F. Daley, who is an actor, and Nancy Daley, who works as a piano teacher. He grew up in a Catholic-Jewish family in Nyack, New York, where he attended school. John`s career began in 1998, when he was cast as Tommy in the Broadway show “The Who`s Tommy”. After this success, he transferred his skills to screen, and appeared as Sam Weir in the TV series “Freaks And Geeks” (1999-2000). Since then his career has gone only upwards, and so has his net worth. In 2000 he was selected for the role of Anthony Ward in the TV series “Boston Public” (2000-2001), and simultaneously worked in the TV series “The Geena Davis Show” (2000-2001). Until 2005, he appeared in several films and TV series, including “Regular Joe” (2003), “View from the Top” (2003), and “Waiting…” (2005). Two years later, he was selected for the role of Dr. Lance Sweets in the highly popular TV crime drama series “Bones” (2007-2012), which not only increased his net worth, but also confirmed him as an actor, earning respect from other actors, and directors. In 2007 he was also cast as lead in the film “5-25-77”, alongside Austin Pendleton. While the TV series “Bones” was airing, John became more focused on writing, and together with Michael Markowitz, wrote the film “Horrible Bosses”, which upon its release became a huge box office hit, starring Jason Bateman and Jason Sudeikis, increasing John`s net worth by a large margin. Since then he has created several more films, including “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” (2013), the sequel “Horrible Bosses 2” (2014), “Vacation” (2014), and “Spider-Man: Homecoming”, which he co-wrote with Jonathan M. Goldstein. His work as a writer also adds a substantial amount to his net worth.
He remains active as an actor as well, as he appeared in the film “Dude Bro Party Massacre III” in 2015, and most recently he had a brief role in the comedy series “Fresh Off The Boat” in 2016, which also added to his net worth. John is also recognized as a musician, starting a band called Dayplayer in 2010, and releasing several songs such as “See It All”, and “To Me”, which became extremely popular in online music services such as You Tube, and iTunes, among others, increasing further John`s net worth.

As a screenwriter and a half-Jew, I tend to look at the glass half-empty.
Once you see the entertainment world from both sides, you really get a greater understanding of how it all operates. As an actor going into screenwriting, I was able to understand what type of dialogue feels natural and what an actor could actually say.
I've always been the type of person that has told friends, if they're going through a rough time, I'm always there to talk to.
I'm avoiding having an assistant because then I would become the horrible boss. I can't justify having an assistant as a 25-year-old; I just can't do it!
Ever since I was 7 years old, I was writing. I remember being in the basement of my house, this dank, horrible basement, putting on plays with not-very-willing participants, and I would promise kids in the neighborhood that I'd play Nintendo 64 with them after we'd rehearse this stupid play that I wrote.
I had always been interested in screenwriting, ever since I could write things down as a child. Obviously, I started as an actor, professionally, but screenwriting was always something that I had a great interest in.
Boys from my generation all love Jim Carrey! But you know, just being in his house with him and pitching jokes that he would act out, literally felt like the dreams that I had, so it was amazing.
A lot of the time, as an actor, you don't have the freedom to change what your lines are, and they can often be very unnatural or difficult to portray in a real light.
You have more creative freedom with writing, in certain ways, because you can create everything that happens. But, as an actor you also have creative freedom because you don't so much focus on what has to move the story along, and only on how your character is reacting to situations.
