We’re sure you’ve all heard by now, Friday Night Lights’ Adrianne Palicki has been cast as Wonder Woman in the pilot being made for NBC. Palicki is 5’11” and her performance as the town vixen on the football drama won her a lot of attention. But does she have what it takes to play a vigilante who is also a successful high-powered executive who enjoys ice cream sleepovers?
Although best known as a blond, Palicki has gone brunette, and seems to match up well with Wonder Woman on that count.
This still from a “powder puff football game” of FNL shows that she’s not afraid of the action.
Aaaaaaand she looks great in her underwear!
Seems well qualified to us.
Now, to fix the horrible, horrible pilot script….
