Adrianne Palicki Cast as Wonder Woman

by at . Comments

TV Fanatic columnist Jeff Kirkpatrick has serious questions about the upcoming NBC remake of Wonder Woman.

But it would be difficult for anyone to argue with the network's choice of which actress will star in this David E. Kelley-penned series: former Friday Night Lights star Adrianne Palicki.

Best known to fans of that drama as Tyra Collette, the actress most recently appeared in Lone Star and stopped by Criminal Minds for an episode. She'll also play a role in the upcoming Red Dawn reboot and recurred on Supernatural.

What do you think of this choice for Wonder Woman?

She is so perfect, I had never thought about her before, because she I think of her as blond, but you gyes she is taller and broader than you might think looking at this picture. I am so excited.

I am not familiar with this actress, but I do know that the comic strip character (which I hope you intend to emulate)is a big woman. Actually, an amazon, but since we don't have amazons the character would have to be a big boned, tall woman, with very dark hair, and a beautiful smile. I don't think the show will be successful if you stray too far from the original character.

I was really hoping that the nerd-rage over the leaked parts of the script would have been enough to kill this. However, I'm willing to give it a shot. I wish I knew more about the actress to properly assess whether this casting choice is ideal. I guess I'll just have to see when/if the pilot airs.

Just FYI Wonder Woman is it really a Amazon

I don't see her bieng very amazon.. So I am guessing that the series will be very very very very loosely based on the comic books and mythology... I haven't seen her in anything except supernatural so I can't really say anything about her acting chops. But she just better play Diana correctly. She needs to be fierce and fearless...
