Daniel Sunjata is the adopted son of Bill Condon, who worked as a police dispatcher, and Catherine Condon, who was a civil rights worker. So, he spent his childhood in Chicago, Illinois, where he attended Mount Carmel High School, excelling as a champion football player. Upon matriculation, he enrolled at Florida A&M University, then transferred to the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, from which he graduated. Afterwards, he became a student at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, where he received his MFA degree in the Graduate Acting Program in 1995.

Daniel’s professional acting career then began, when he made his debut appearance in the role of Valentine in the TV film “Twelfth Night, or What You Will” (1998), starring alongside Helen Hunt and Philip Bosco. 2000 was his breakout year, as he was chosen to portray Lewis Freeman in the TV series “D.C.” (2000), which was followed by guest-starring in the TV series “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” (2000-2004). Since then, his career has only gone upwards, as well as his net worth.

In 2003, Daniel starred in the Broadway play “Take Me Out”, for which he won a Theatre World Award, as well as being nominated for Drama Desk and Tony Awards. In the following year, he won the role of Langston in “Brother To Brother”, the role of Marco in “Noel” starring alongside Penelope Cruz and Paul Walker, and the role of Franco Rivera in the TV series “Rescue Me”, which lasted until 2011, increasing enormously his popularity and net worth, as he was included in winning the Satellite Award for Best Cast – Television Series.

Daniel’s next big break came in 2007, when he appeared in “The Bronx is Burning”, playing Reggie Jackson, which earned him a nomination in the category of Outstanding Actor in a Television Movie, Mini-Series or Dramatic Special for NAACP Image Award. Before the end of the decade, he also starred in such film titles as “The Devil Wears Prada” (2006) with Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway, and “Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past” (2009), along Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner, and Emma Stone, steadily improving his net worth.

In 2010, Daniel won the role of Eli Lloyd in the highly popular TV series “Grey’s Anatomy”, and two years later starred as Captain Jones in Christopher Nolan’s film “The Dark Knight Rises”. Most recently, he appeared in the role of Paul Briggs in the TV series “Graceland” (2013-2015), and when that filming ended he appeared as Jake Gregorian in another TV series called “Notorious” (2016). All of these roles will certainly increase his net worth. It is also announced that Daniel will appear in the 2017 film “Small Town Crime”.

If to talk about Daniel Sunjata’s personal life, there is no information about it in the media, except that he has strongly denied rumours of him being gay, and is simply still looking for ‘the right girl”.
