Claire Danes and James Marsden Set to Play Parents in As Cool As I Am

Claire Danes is now officially old enough to play a mom to a teenage daughter. She's been cast alongside James Marsden as the parents in As Cool As I Am, the adaptation of Pete Fromm's coming-of-age novel about a teenage girl, her troubled mother, and her often-absent father. The teenage lead has yet to be cast, so 15-year-olds who could credibly be the offspring of two outrageously gorgeous people, get your headshots together. (And to save you a Google, a link to the Dar Williams song of the same name.) [Wrap]
