Daniel Curtis Lee has been a fixture on kids television for four years, starting with Nickelodeon’s “Ned’s Declassified” co-starring as “Cookie” from 2004 thru 2007. Born 17 years ago in Clinton, Mississippi, Daniel has an older sister named Yolande and his brother Nathaniel “Van” Lee Jr. When Nathaniel Jr. got a part in a movie called ‘My Dog Skip’ with Kevin Bacon and Frankie Muniz, Daniel decided to follow in his brother’s footsteps. Soon after, they both got a part in the Cohen Brother’s film ‘O’ Brother Where Art Thou’. This encouraged their parents, Nathaniel Sr. and Sharial Lee to bring the guys out to Los Angeles 2001 to pursue their interest as actors. What followed was an audition for the show on Nickelodeon, Ned’s Declassified, which Daniel booked and was made one of the three stars of the show.
Daniel and brother Nathaniel Jr. were always interested in music and were very accomplished musicians and experimented with different kinds of music. But as Daniel grew older he found himself very connected with hip hop. Artist like Jay Z, Nelly, Biggie Smalls and Lil Wayne made a lasting impression on Daniel and has motivated him to reach for that same level of skill and talent. Daniel performs his music all over the country to packed audiences like the Indiana Black Expo, Carnival NBA Urban Youth Stage in San Francisco and The Tom Joyner Family Reunion on Labor 2007. His freestyle skillz proves he’s the Real Deal not just a paper star. Check out the MUSIC PAGE.
In 2008 Daniel moved from Nickelodeon to The Disney Channel to start filming a new show called “Zeke and Luther” set in the world of Skateboarders. Daniel co-stars as the character named “Kojo”, a self assured miniature motorcycle-riding skateboard King who wears a pro-sport leather jacket as his signature look. The show is on Disney’s new channel Disney XD. This show is as cool as Disney gets.
