Turns out, you can blame Daley's successful writing and now directing career.
The actor, who started out as Sam Weir on Freaks and Geeks, has been turning out scripts with partner Jonathan Goldstein for films such as Horrible Bosses and The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, and together, they're writing and directing the now-in-progress National Lampoon's Vacation reboot.
The more satisfying conclusion to my character would be for Sweets to die. I was super pumped to do it, but sad I had to leave the show that I had been on for seven years.

How upset the fans were, how moved they were by the funeral? I'm very flattered by the response from the Twitter-sphere. It's really cool to know that it had an impact on a loyal fan base.
You and Jonathan had cameos in Incredible Burt Wonderstone as paramedics and stage managers. I can't believe how many Bones fans there are out there, who stop me on the street!
But they pushed production on the movie by about a year.Together, the quartet devises a complex, but seemingly fool-proof plan to get rid of the bosses "permanently" (as in deceased), but things don't quite go as planned.

However, he has guest-starred on a number of TV shows.
