'As Cool As I Am' Trailer: Claire Danes is a Sucky Mom

In real life, Claire Danes is probably a fantasmically excellent mother. However, her character in this new trailer for "As Cool As I Am" needs a 'lil help.

Fellow junkies of the "My So-Called Life" series — which, seriously, how in the world was that show just one season? — will remember a younger Danes as the sullen Angela Chase, dying her hair (much to her mother's chagrin) and desperately trying to find herself a comfy corner in the universe while hoping above all hope that the hot guitar guy at school might one day pay her just an ounce of attention.

Thanks to an amazing cast that includes Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Russell Crowe, an Oscar-winning director in Tom Hooper and the public's abiding love for the classic Broadway musical it's based on, "Les Misérables" seems poised to be a major power at both the box office and at the Oscars.

But what if we told you that back in 1998, another acclaimed director put together an even more impressive cast for an adaptation of "Les Misérables" — one that has been almost completely forgotten? Get More »
