Adrianne Palicki Is The New Wonder Woman

The young and rather obscure actress Adrianne Palicki has managed to do something that many actresses with bigger names and touted careers could not, land the coveted role of "Wonder Woman".

Palicki (Friday Night Lights / Legion) will now be stepping into Lynda Carter's shoes and taking on a role that the actress made into a pop-culture icon in the late 1970s. The part, however, will not be for a major motion picture, which had been rumored for some time, but for a TV movie that will serve as a pilot for a television series.

Warner Bros had been trying to get a big-budget "Wonder Woman" movie off the ground for several years but could never seem to be able to assemble the right creative team to make it work. Not, that the studio didn't have actresses lined up around the block jonesing for the part. Just about every femme fatal in Hollywood that remotely looked the part had their agents blazing up the Warner's switchboard. The list of Diana Prince wanna-bees included Jennifer Love Hewitt, Anna Friel, Jessica Biel, Katie Holmes, Megan Fox, Eliza Dushku and singer Beyonce Knowles.

Who did Lynda Carter endorse to replace her? Eliza Dushku, but the choice wasn't Carter's to make. Now the young Adrianne Palicki will have her shot and resurrecting an iconic role a task that should prove rather difficult. Carter is so recognized as "Wonder Woman" that even DC comics has endeavored to make their artwork resemble her.
