In the standard Hollywood procedure to never let a current fizzling fad go to waste (in this case comic book/TV show remakes), Wonder Woman has been recast. Now my unbridled, yet oddly disturbing to my wife and friends, infatuation with Linda Carter as Wonder Woman is no secret. I think I’m one of the five owners of the complete series on DVD. But as I’m no stick in the mud when it comes to hot chicks I think I’ll give the new WW a shot. While she appears to have the right assets, I will hold judgement to she how well she fills out the role. Or at least how well she fills out the costume. I am absolutely sure there will be more to follow on this topic.
NBC released a wonderful bit of casting news today: ‘Friday Night Lights’ alum Adrianne Palicki is set to play the title role (and two alter-egos) in David E. Kelley’s buzzed about ‘Wonder Woman’ reboot.
Kelley reportedly has a lot of work to do on the script, but Wonder Woman will have to do some serious heavy lifting of her own. Not only will Palicki play the star-spangled crimefighter, who’s now based in LA, but she’ll also play her alter-ego, billionaire CEO Diana Themyscira and Diana’s mousy assistant Diana Prince.
