Claire Danes Totally Beats Ron Howard at Jimmy Fallon’s Pictionary Game

Quick draw! Claire Danes proved herself to be a woman of many talents during The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday, Dec. 7, as she went head-to-head with Ron Howard in a game of Pictionary, and won convincingly!

Turns out the Homeland star isn't just a good actress, as she took to the stage to draw out clues for show host Fallon to try and guess. Her first attempts to give pictorial hints at the phrase, "You're fired!" led to an easy, and impressive, win.

Howard (who teamed up with Steve Higgins) didn't have any success trying to draw a periscope, but did a little better when it was his turn to guess.

But while Danes did manage (just!) to scream out the answer "cartwheel" when it was her turn to figure out Fallon's pictures (we'll forget she offered up the less-obvious option of "ejaculation" first!), it was her super-speedy drawing hand that won her the game.

Watch the hilarious video above and see how much faster than director Howard she is at drawing a stick man on a trampoline!
