Previously, working with producing partner Bruce Cohen, Dan produced Milk, directed by Gus Van Sant and starring Sean Penn as Harvey Milk. The film was nominated for 8 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and won for Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay. Milk was named Best Picture of 2008 by the New York Film Critics Circle.[3]

The pair won the Best Picture Academy Award in 2000 for producing American Beauty.[4] The film, which won a total of five Oscars,[4] was the first film produced through The Jinks/Cohen Company. Their second film was the sex comedy Down with Love starring Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor. Next up was Tim Burton's Big Fish, which was nominated as Best Picture for both the Golden Globes and the BAFTAs. Other films include The Forgotten, starring Julianne Moore, and John August's directing debut, The Nines, starring Ryan Reynolds and Hope Davis.

In television, Dan and Bruce executive produced the acclaimed ABC series Pushing Daisies, which won 8 Emmy Awards and was nominated for a Golden Globe as best television comedy. They also served as executive producers on the series Traveler (ABC) and Side Order of Life (Lifetime).

In the summer of 2008, they produced A Timeless Call, a tribute to war veterans that Steven Spielberg directed for the Democratic National Convention.

Prior to Jinks/Cohen, Dan produced Nothing to Lose, starring Martin Lawrence and Tim Robbins for Touchstone Pictures, and executive produced The Bone Collector, with Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie for Universal.
