We have a name and a face now!

They cast Wonder Woman.

Adrianne Palicki

I've never seen her in anything (I understand she was Kara in Smallville but I haven't watched that episode), but she is not on my list of nightmare casting choices so I am cautiously optimistic.

Even if they are making Steve a lawyer, and there's a guarantee of at least one depressed at night eating ice cream scene.

On the bright side, someone already tracked down Lynda Carter for an interview about it. She sounds quite optimistic.
What do you think of the casting?

"I think it is an amazing role to play. I know she is going to be really nervous about it, just because you would be. But I have a lot of confidence in [writer] David Kelley and what he's going to come up with. David Kelley's so talented, and that's really where it needs to be, is in the writing.

I spoke with David yesterday, and he's really really excited about it.

I think the story needs to be retold. It needs to have a fresh look at it. It affected a lot of people. I think it's time, I think it's important to have it out there again.

Is there any advice you'd offer her?

[Laughing] Gosh, I would never offer her any advice. Nor would she probably want any. If she wants to talk to me, that would be a whole different thing. But I would never offer, 'Now let me tell you how to do this.' She's an actress and she's a good actress and she's beautiful and I hope she kicks butt.


  1. No actor was ever a better ambassador for the character they played than Ms. Carter (though I feel I must also acknowledge that she had at least one peer in Christopher Reeve). So gracious.

  2. The details on this show keep going from bad to worse to even worse...!5763604/wonder-woman-audition-tape-reveals-diana-prince-obsesses-about-her-breasts-being-too-small

  3. What's with giving Diana multiple civilian identities? Who do they think she is? Moon Knight?

  4. I don't have the foggiest idea who she is, but I have read that she is 5'll" tall. And that's a good thing.

  5. I, for one, would be very pleased if Kelley at least OFFERED Carter the role of Hippolyta.
