Jernigan, with twenty-two years of experience as an entertainment journalist, was likely picked for his unique, straightforward manner during interviews. Over the years, Jernigan has interviewed and covered the careers and Private Lives of Britney Spears, Tom Cruise, Justin Timberlake, and countless other celebrities. His biography of singer Marie Osmand will be released later this year; his recently released best seller The Road to Happiness is currently available via Creative Partners Gift Books. "I'm excited to be a part of this project," Jernigan said about the project. "After reviewing all the material on Dan I can tell there's a lot of crap that's been written. My job will be to wade through all the rumor and turn out a factual piece of history of an amazing actor." Jernigan notes that he's already in the final stages of edit on the Daniel Radcliffe-themed book, which will be out in stores in a few months. (more...)
