Claire Danes – Crush Of The Day
It’s kind of ironic that today’s Crush of the Day was a crush of many young men back in the mid-1990’s. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Maybe we should have made her a ‘still got it?’
On the seminal teen drama ‘My So-Called Life,’ Claire Danes played Angela Chase, a typical high school girl dealing with the hot button issues of 1994. The show only lasted one season but it occupies a very special place in the hearts of that generation. Danes took some time after the show was cancelled to attend Yale and pursue a psychology degree, but she eventually decided that acting is where she’s most needed.
Fast forward to 2011, when Claire Danes is cast in Showtime’s awesome ‘Homeland.’ As FBI agent Carrie Matheson, Danes delivers a tour de force of acting every episode, giving us a woman on the brink of total collapse who just won’t let go of a lead, no matter how bloody it gets. She won a Golden Globe for her performance, and we can’t wait for season 2 to start this September.
Suck on that Jordan Catalano.
