Daniel L. Haynes (1889; July 28, 1954) was an American stage and film actor and clergyman. He is best known for starring as Zeke in the early all-black King Vidor directed film Halleljuah. In 1910, he married Rosa Belle Sims in Chicago. In his last years, he left show business and became a full-time Baptist minister. At the time of M-G-M's Hallelujah, Haynes is quoted as having said: "I cannot say what our race owes King Vidor and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer --- there are not words forceful enough for that. Hallelujah will, as Moses led his people from the wilderness, lead ours from the wilderness of misunderstanding and apathy."
