Lee Daniels

Lee Daniels has amassed quite the resume over the past few years. From the Oscar award-winning “Monster’s Ball” to the stunning portrait shown in “Precious,” Daniels has dazzled us with his confidence and willingness to tackle tough subjects. But before he was one of Hollywood’s most sought-after directors, he did a slightly different type of directing.
