Fast Family Feud with Claire Danes

In this fast-paced world, even "Family Feud" is too slow, so Jimmy Fallon has stepped it up a notch.

Claire Danes was the latest guest to go head-to-head with the "Tonight Show" host, this time in a rapid-fire round of "Fast Family Feud."

The "Homeland" actress proved her trigger finger was just as quick as her CIA agent character Carrie Mathison as she jumped on questions such as "name something you call someone when you can't remember their name?"

The passionate former "My So-Called Life" got so into the action that she dropped an F-bomb when Fallon beat her to the buzzer.

"You can't say that word!" he scalded, as he took Round 1.

Surprisingly "homework" didn't come up as an answer for "things you bring back from Spring Break," but "STDs" did.

Ironically, the next question was "name a word you use when you are trying not to swear" — something that Danes knows all too well.

Check out the video above to see how Danes did on the other questions.

"The Tonight Show" airs at 11:35 p.m. on NBC.
