Spencer Daniels is the young actor who played Meredith's son Jake in the episode Take Your Daughter to Work Day. Beginning his acting career at ten, he has numerous television (Cold Case, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Big Love, Crash and NCIS) and film credits - including small roles in blockbusters only a few months apart in 2008-09, appearing in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button as the "younger" self of Brad Pitt's title character, and in J.J. Abrams's reboot of Star Trek as an acquaintance who adolescent James T. Kirk passes while joyriding in his step-father's 1965 Corvette

(Initially, he was cast as Kirk's older brother; Kirk was running away from home, and his words before leaving were what drove young Jim to steal the car. However, the scene was cut to show only the drive itself, and for the one part of Daniels' role which remained in the film, he was made a separate character.)

He is the son of executive producer Greg Daniels, or the brother of Haley Daniels, who played Abby in the same episode.
