Adrianne Palicki Cast as TV’s Wonder Woman
Actress Adrianne Palicki, best known for her role as Tyra Collette on the critically-acclaimed high school football drama Friday Night Lights, has just been announced as the new Wonder Woman for the upcoming David E. Kelley scripted TV series based on the DC Comics superheroine.
The 27-year-old Palicki, who stands at an Amazonian 5’11 and listed reading comic books as an interest in her Friday Night Lights bio, will be playing no less than three different roles in one, according to the casting report at TV Line:
• The titular crimefighter, “reinvented” here as an L.A.-based vigilante
• Alter ego No. 1: Diana Themyscira, a mega-billionaire CEO
• Alter ego No. 2: Diana’s “plain Jane” assistant, Diana Prince.
The original Wonder Woman of television, Lynda Carter, signaled her approval in a tweet after the news was announced.
What do you think of the casting? Does Palicki seem like a good choice for Wonder Woman?
