Son of Mickey Faerch.
Daeg began scriptwriting at eight years old when he wrote the 15 page pirate/vampire script "Duel" that he directed and edited the following year.
When Daeg was cast as Michel, the French boy in Hancock, he had a star meter of 38. At that time, that star meter was greater than the three big names of this movie. The reason is he had just completed the lead role in Halloween (2007), directed by Rob Zombie. Daeg did all his own stunts in both movies.
Named the "Best Minor Character" in Miami Herald's 2008 Movie Yearbook: "Hancocks' Michel (Daeg Faerch) the snotty French boy who insists on referring to the alcoholic superhero in an extremely rude way." Best Minor Character.
Daeg has a French accent in "Hancock" and a German accent in "Pushing Daisies". He speaks Japanese in "Life Ride" and French in "Angry Ghost." Daeg can also speak some American Sign Language and a bit of Danish.
