Birthday: Sep 25, 1977

Birthplace: Los Angeles, California, USA

First making an impression on the collective filmgoing consciousness as the resident bad-ass of the teen horror flick The Faculty (1998), Clea Duvall has managed to stand out among the crowd of young actors who gained seemingly overnight fame during the late '90s. Strong-jawed and sharp-eyed, Duvall developed an interest in acting at an early age. Born in Los Angeles on September 25, 1977, she attended the Los Angeles High School of the Arts and got her professional start on television, making occasional appearances on a variety of shows including E.R. and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. After minor work in a couple of independent films, Duvall nabbed her role in The Faculty, starring as a moody goth girl alongside such up-and-comers as Elijah Wood, Shawn Hatosy, and Josh Hartnett. The film was a fairly substantial box-office success, and in 1999 Duvall could be seen in no less than three more films. In The Astronaut's Wife she played Charlize Theron's sister, while Girl, Interrupted cast her as a resident of a mental hospital occupied by the likes of Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie. Duvall also starred as an unwilling patient of another kind of rehab in But I'm a Cheerleader: a comedy-satire about Megan (Natasha Lyonne), a high school cheerleader who is sent to a sort of straight rehab camp for gay teens, Duvall played a tattooed young lesbian who teaches Megan how to cheer for the other team. In 2003 she co-starred with Sean Penn and Naomi Watts in the award-winning drama 21 Grams, and played a leading role in the HBO series Carnivale. Though the show was canceled after only two seasons, Duvall received no small amount of praise for her turn as a member of a traveling circus during The Great Depression. She played a small supporting role in Zodiac (2007), a docudrama chronicling the gruesome story of the serial murderer known as the Zodiac killer. In 2012 she took on another supporting role in Argo, docudrama depicting the efforts to save a group of American diplomats after militants seize control of the U.S. embassy in Tehran during the height of the Iranian Revolution.

Marybeth Louise Hutchinson says: Maybe we really win, I mean Stan didn't look unhappy.

Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell says: That's because that wasn't Stan, they took away who he was.

Stan Rosado says: Let's get the f**k outta here.

Stan Rosado says: Just listen to yourselves. Our teachers are aliens? That's not weird, that's fu**ing psychotic. Come on, guys. This is nuts.

Delilah Profitt says: Then leave, Stan. Why are you hanging around? Go win a Pulitzer.

Stan Rosado says: Blow me, Delilah, 'cause I'm sick of your sh*t.

Delilah Profitt says: Get the f**k out of here and take your freak dyke with you.

Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell says: F**k you, tit bags!

Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell says: You know what, Casey, it's fiction. Okay? - It's science fiction.

Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell says: You know what, Casey, it's fiction. Okay? It's science fiction.

Casey Connor says: Everybody gets hung up on the science part, which has nothing to do with it. They're getting at us through the fiction.

Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell says: So, aliens have just been setting us up over the years, creating this happy little make-believe existence...with their E.T. and their Men In Black movies...just so that nobody would believe it if it really happened?

Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell says: So, aliens have just been setting us up over the years, creating this happy little make-believe existence with their E.T. and their Men In Black movies, just so that nobody would believe it if it really happened?

Casey Connor says: Everybody's been acting really strange, especially the faculty.

Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell says: Tell me about it. It's like they've all turned into fu**ing pod people...or something.

Casey Connor says: Into what people?

Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell says: Invasion of the Body Snatchers. A small town was taken over by aliens...That was a joke.

Casey Connor says: Look, what if it really happened?

Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell says: What if that really happened?

Casey Connor says: I think something's taking over our school.

Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell says: The Body Snatchers is a story somebody made up, dingus. It's located in the fiction section of the library.

Casey Connor says: So is Schindler's List. All fiction is based on some truth, right? What does Miss Burke teach us in English 101? Write what you know. How do we know this writer guy...Jack Finney, didn't encounter aliens in his high school...which led him to write a book about an alien invasion?

Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell says: Your conspiracy theory is flawed.

Casey Connor says: How so?

Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell says: Jack Finney's The Body Snatchers is a blatant rip-off...of The Puppet Masters by Robert Heinlein. So you can completely disregard that entire work.

Casey Connor says: The point is they're here, they've been here and they're here again.

Stan Rosado says: I made a "D" on a biology test right after, and Mr. Furlong changed it to an "A." He said I deserved for having such a strong arm. That really bugged me, you know? I worked hard for that "D." That was my "D." I deserved that "D." I just wish people would let me be, you know?

Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell says: A "D" student.

Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell says: A 'D' student.

Stan Rosado says: Yeah.

Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell says: I'm not a lesbian, all right?

Marybeth Louise Hutchinson says: Be one. Please. Fly free.

Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell says: (bumps into Stan) - Man, get a fu**ing eye dog.

Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell says: (bumps into Stan) Man, get a fu**ing eye dog.

Stan Rosado says: Maybe if you didn't paint your fu**ing eyes shut.

Delilah Profitt says: Don't you love the way Stokely accessorizes different shades of black in her ensemble?

Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell says: F**k you, gutter slut.

Delilah Profitt says: I don't know why you insist...on being such a bad example for your people.

Delilah Profitt says: I don't know why you insist on being such a bad example for your people.

Marybeth Louise Hutchinson says: What people?

Delilah Profitt says: I hope you're not a violent lesbian like your new friend.
