Carrie Matheson probably wouldn’t have handled this as well as Claire Danes! On Monday night, the Homeland star, 36, appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon where she played one of the late night host’s infamous games.
After surveying the audience, Fallon had a game of “Fast Family Feud” – buzzers and all – for Danes, and she didn’t disappoint. Clad in a chic, wine-colored dress, the Golden Globe-winning actress gave the questions her all.

She started off slow, hitting her buzzer too late several times and shouting "Oh, f**k" before finally getting to answer first -- and she blew it. When asked to name something you bring home from Spring Break, she panicked and said, “Homework?”
The actress recently enjoyed Easter with her 3-year-old son, Cyrus, decorating “avant garde” eggs, and trying to surprise him with gifts.

“I went to get him in the morning. I’m so much more excited than he is,” Danes said. “I was like, ‘I think the bunny rabbit came, the Easter bunny came last night,’ and he’s like, ‘I just want to hold the little bunny in my hands.’ My heart just went [mimes exploding]. And I also just felt like a total failure.”
