If you’re a 'Notorious' fan, then you’ve surely done your research on its lead, Daniel Sunjata, who portrays the charismatic defense attorney, Jake Gregorian. The character’s resolve to win his cases, which often results in him manipulating the media, has made him a fan favorite.
Well, Daniel Sunjata’s alluring eyes and sexy figure help a lot too. It's interesting that even after more than a few years in the entertainment industry, there seems to be no substantial information on his personal life.
Daniel Sunjata is extremely secretive of his personal life
We know plenty about his on-screen romances with Jennifer Garner in Ghosts of Girlfriends Past and Andrea Roth in Rescue Me. But looks like Sunjata likes to keep his personal things under wraps.
What else are we to make of his radio silence on his dating history and lack of obvious public appearances with female celebrities?
Daniel Sunjata doesn't like parading his romantic relationships out in the open, to say the least.
Daniel Sunjata remains unmarried
At 44, Daniel is still a bachelor. He has not settled down with anyone yet. At least we hope he has not. His present relationship status is still a mystery.
He would not even bother to talk about his past link ups and affairs. Maybe he doesn't like the thought of paparazzi meddling with his dating scene.
Is Daniel Sunjata gay?
Interesting to note, Daniel has been surrounded by gay rumors. Although he has denied the rumors time and again, we decided to mention it just to prepare you if there were to be any surprises in the future.
A few heads up to all the interested girls out there, Daniel prefers adventurous activities for recreation. He loves hiking, paragliding and horse riding (well horse riding could be an adventure to some). Also, for those who are not particularly into adventures, he enjoys playing chess and going for a long drive.
What we know about Daniel Sunjata so far
Daniel played as a linebacker in high school football teams. He even participated in state championships for Chicago-based Mount Carmel High School team. No wonder he has such athletic build.
Also, his mixed heritage must have done wonders on his looks. His biological mother was white while his biological father was of black ethnicity. He was adopted by Bill and Catherine Condon. Ironically, he was named after Sundiata Keita, whose name is supposed to translate to “hungry lion”.
Daniel started his acting career by playing Valentine in 'Twelfth Night, or What You Will'. He became a prominent face in the television industry when he played Burt Trevor, a CSU Technician, in the police procedural crime drama TV series 'Law & Order: Special Victims Unit'.
His other noticeable appearances were in ‘Sex and the City’, ‘Rescue Me’, ‘Law & Order’, ‘The Bronx is Burning’, ‘3D Rock’, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and ‘Smash’.
