I can't decide whether or not I like Claire Danes. She's like a see-saw in my mind:
Up: She debuts in Shaw's Pygmalion this week on Broadway as Eliza Doolittle. What a daring choice! Plus she does random ballet moves in Gap ads! She's so classy and bookish and learned!
Down: Prior to accepting the role, she had neither read the play nor seen "My Fair Lady." (I would have thought she'd have been a little more up to speed on her literary and popular culture, for crying out loud.) It makes me skeptical that she'd have the wherewithal to do the role justice.
