Daniel Webber (actor)
Daniel Peter Webber (born 28 June 1988) is an Australian actor. Among his best known roles, Webber has portrayed Mötley Crüe lead singer Vince Neil in the 2019 film The Dirt, Lee Harvey Oswald in the American science fiction thriller miniseries 11.22.63 and Lewis Wilson in the Netflix original series The Punisher.
Early life and education
Webber worked as a rope access technician on wind turbines. His first acting experience was on the 2009 film The Combination. From 2009–2010, he portrayed Darius Pike on the TV series K-9. He also had roles on All Saints and in the miniseries Devil's Dust.
Webber's role on the J. J. Abrams-produced 11.22.63 was his first in the United States. He got the role after sending in an audition tape, which he had two days to prepare for, including watching newsreels of Oswald and listening to clips of his voice. After he was cast, he then read the novel on which it was based, as well as other books about the assassination. Webber received praise for "mastering Oswald's peculiar speech pattern and growing sense of paranoia."
In 2019, Webber attracted critical acclaim for his performance as Mötley Crüe lead singer Vince Neil in the 2019 Netflix film The Dirt. He also appeared in the feature film Danger Close, directed by Kriv Stenders.
