'Swiss Army Man' directors explain Daniels nickname

July 06, 2016 - 12:39 PM

"Swiss Army Man" directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert are known collectively as Daniels — not "the" Daniels. Here's why, in their own words:

Scheinert: We felt like it was a little arrogant to put an article in front of it.

Kwan: Like we're the only ones.

Scheinert: Because there are so many great Daniels out there, Radcliffe being one of them.

Kwan: Danny DeVito, Daniel Day-Lewis.

Scheinert: Danny Glover.

Kwan: There are so many, so if we did that, I feel like it would be offensive to all the other Daniels.

Scheinert: It would be like we're proclaiming victory. So maybe one day when we're ...

Kwan: The only surviving ones ...

Scheinert: Yeah, like the unchallenged greatest of all time, we'll put a "the" in front, but until then we're just some Daniels.

Kwan: "Some Daniels" would be pretty funny.
