  • 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.

You know, you were right about me. I don't have any friends and I like it that way. Being lesbian is just my security.

Marybeth Louise Hutchinson
What happens at the end of all those stories, Stokely? How does Invasion of the Body Snatchers turn out?
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
They get us. They win. We lose.
Marybeth Louise Hutchinson
Maybe we really win; I mean Stan didn't look unhappy.
Marybeth Louise Hutchinson
Maybe we really win, I mean Stan didn't look unhappy.
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
That's because that wasn't Stan, they took away who he was.
Marybeth Louise Hutchinson
Maybe they just bettered who he was. Cleared away his confusion. I know you pride yourself on being the outsider, but aren't you tired of pretending to be something you're not? I know I am.
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
(kisses Stan) - I just don't want to never have done that.
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
(kisses Stan) I just don't want to never have done that.
Delilah Profitt
And I'm supposed to trust you? Tell me something, Miss Lesbian, when did you start liking boys?
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
What the f**k you talking about?
Delilah Profitt
I see the way you look at Stan. So when did you stop muff-diving?
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell

This is usually the point where somebody says, "Let's get the f**k outta here."

Stan Rosado
Let's get the f**k outta here.
Stan Rosado
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
Then leave, Stan. Why are you hanging around? Go win a Pulitzer.
Stan Rosado
Blow me, Delilah, 'cause I'm sick of your sh*t.
Delilah Profitt
Get the f**k out of here and take your freak dyke with you.
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
F**k you, tit bags!
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
You know what, Casey, it's fiction. Okay? - It's science fiction.
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell

Casey Connor
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
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

I think so. Yeah...You're not buying this, are you?
Casey Connor

Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
No, I'm not...But it's kind of cool.
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
No, I'm not. But it's kind of cool.
Casey Connor
Everybody's been acting really strange, especially the faculty.
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
Tell me about it. It's like they've all turned into fu**ing pod people...or something.
Casey Connor
Into what people?
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
Invasion of the Body Snatchers. A small town was taken over by aliens...That was a joke.
Casey Connor
Look, what if it really happened?
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
What if that really happened?
Casey Connor
I think something's taking over our school.
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
The Body Snatchers is a story somebody made up, dingus. It's located in the fiction section of the library.
Casey Connor
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
Your conspiracy theory is flawed.
Casey Connor
How so?
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
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.

The point is they're here, they've been here and they're here again.
Stan Rosado
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
I'm not a lesbian, all right?
Marybeth Louise Hutchinson
Be one. Please. Fly free.
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
(bumps into Stan) - Man, get a fu**ing eye dog.
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell

Stan Rosado
Maybe if you didn't paint your fu**ing eyes shut.
Delilah Profitt
Don't you love the way Stokely accessorizes different shades of black in her ensemble?
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
F**k you, gutter slut.
Delilah Profitt
I don't know why you insist...on being such a bad example for your people.
Delilah Profitt

Marybeth Louise Hutchinson

Delilah Profitt
I hope you're not a violent lesbian like your new friend.
Marybeth Louise Hutchinson
I'm not aware of any lesbianism in my lineage.
Stan Rosado
(bumps into Stokely) - You okay?
Stan Rosado
(bumps into Stokely) You okay?
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
Walk much?
Stan Rosado
You ran into me, beast.
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
Crash and burn, Casey.
