ALTHOUGH actor Patrick Wilson has more musical-theater credits than Claire Danes -- he was nominated for a Tony for "Oklahoma!" and "The Full Monty"; she wasn't -- Danes dances his pants off, literally, to the Broadway show tune "Anything You Can Do" in a TV campaign for the Gap's "boyfriend trouser" for women.
In the spot, directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, directors of "Little Miss Sunshine," Wilson and Danes engage in a "dance-off" that culminates in Danes snatching off Wilson's khakis and putting them on herself. The idea, according to Gap press materials, is to "capture the fun of wearing a boyfriend's favorite."
Danes, however, is not without dance credits; various bios take note that Danes "enrolled in a dance class at age 6." No information was immediately available on whether the actress was still enrolled at age 7.
