Who Would You Cast As Wonder Woman?

Invisible jets are about to increase an infinite percent on your TVs, because Warner Bros. TV is bringing Wonder Woman back to your living room. The studio revealed it was working on the project with Ally McBeal's David E. Kelley behind the scenes, creating an interesting topic of discussion: What the heck is David E. Kelley doing with a Wonder Woman show?

But a much more interesting topic came about in the comments section of our Wonder Woman mention: Who should play the new Wonder Woman? Let's examine the obvious and not-so-obvious candidates, and make sure you scroll all the way down for our pick.

Evangeline Lilly

Previous Experience: Kate from Lost
Pros: She's certainly hot enough.
Cons: She said she was quitting acting.

Katee Sackhoff

Previous Experience: Starbuck from Battlestar Galactica
Pros: She's got sci-fi cache! And she's a great physical fit for the role.
Cons: She's blonde!

Jennifer Garner

Previous Experience: That girl from Alias
Pros: She proved on Alias that she can kick ass.
Cons: She's a hotshot movie star now. Plus, she has a goblin-child to take care of.

Eliza Dushku

Previous Experience: Echo from Dollhouse
Pros: She's certainly hot enough. Is a good physical actress.
Cons: Not the best acting actress.

Summer Glau

Previous Experience: River from Firefly
Pros: Has a legion of stalker-like online fans.
Cons: She's a bit scrawny to play Wonder Woman, don't you think? Plus, she's a show cancellation magnet.

Kim Kardashian

Previous Experience: A sex tape.
Pros: Maybe she'd do her own stunts and hurt herself.
Cons: Everything else.

Betty White

Previous Experience: Guest Star from Everything Recently
Pros: She's the hottest thing in Hollywood right now.
Cons: Her sexiness might distract from the rest of the show.

Rachel Bilson

Previous Experience: Summer from The O.C.
Pros: She's soooooooo cutesy wootsy! Like a baby chipmunk!
Cons: Unless the new Wonder Woman overpowers criminals by being adorable, we're not sure she can pull off the gravitas the role demands.

Christina Hendricks

Previous Experience: Joan from Mad Men
Pros: Is there any other woman so wonderful?
Cons: There's not enough spandex in the universe for a top that could contain her superpowers.

Neil Patrick Harris

Previous Experience: Barney from How I Met Your Mother
Pros: He can sing! He can dance!
Cons: We're sure some lame-o will have a problem with this somewhere.

And our near-unanimous choice to play the new Wonder Woman...

Aisha Tyler

Previous Experience: Lana from Archer (voice)
Pros: Every single thing about her.
Cons: Absolutely none.

Who would YOU cast as the new Wonder Woman?

i love the original adventure of the show with that hot looking outfit and villians these days in a modern way are also hot looking and sexy.in a fantasy anything can happen is she the kind of lady to do about anything people want her to do lets think this over a little the outfit may suck now with d c comics changing it
Reply

her villians must be sexy in a way of bad girls and stuff i mean if she takes her down it would appeal to men more and she would show her man the steve trevor guy from the old show what she is willing to do for him. this is ofcourse nothing but a fantasy

who would be her stunt doubles would she wear a wig like lynda carter did the wonderwoman has very long black hair she must think nicely of men and women to make it good as an example to all t v viewers i assume it will only have a pg rating the original had a g rating

does any actress really want to play her and if so who i think the actress whoever it maybe should study the heroine carefully she is a little weird and most people agree probably is because of her comicbook villians and their stories i also believe that people want this so so so much they must somehow like it and what if then if an actress has time and what if they had to replace her would they like that
Reply

does anyone here even read comic books about wonderwoman i heard that lynda carter did before she got to play her can they create comicbook villians and have her do some things but have it a modern day but with the same kind of lynda carter outfit
Reply

i also heard somewhere that they were watching the old lynda carter t v show and were trying to get ideas for a new t v series would lynda carter have the final say of who it will be can she judge the women on what she thinks is right for the role will actress carter be in the show will it be just like the old but with modern day villians with alot of action

i need more time to think about this i have heard hundreds of names of females mentioned i think this would be much harder now to decide.since so many television fans have said their choices over the last 20 years. i wish i could find some women and if they get into acting they were wonder women and then i could be in the series too they may say things also about the heroine but i do not like some things what i hear others say it would indeed be impossible to satisfy everyone and besides that no one knows how this show will go and what people like about it

are they looking for a young actress because i heard somewhere that joel silver who was in charge of the heroine said kim basinger.i think she should be between 20 and 30 and if i had a choice it would be someone who plays a heroine already and is never embarrassed of what wonderwoman does because i think all actresses would be and lynda carter was that way. is lynda carter daughter an actress too? i saw her once on television and that would give her the original lynda carter look

i would cast katie holmes or jennifer aniston the reasons are katie holmes would do i think anything they would want her to do as wonderwoman and if i were an actor i would love to be in the show with her i love this heroine and jennifer aniston because i think she has to prove that she is tough and many t v show fans think so and she has said before she is available right now

It is to bad Aisha Tyler or even a hispanic actress can't take the role but since any of them are out of the running I think from this short list I'd love to see Rachel Bilson. Also starting with such a young looking WW gives the show staying potential. Who knows could go 10 seasons like Smallville. A black haired Britney Snow could also be a good choice.

Sigh. David E. Kelley? Really? So we can have Diana kvetching about her biological clock and the cute boy who works at Starbucks? What, they couldn't get Joss Whedon? Could be worse, I guess... Ugh.

As for the actress, I'm honestly stumped. I can think of a few who have the perfect look, but probably not the chops, and several who probably have the chops, but not the look. I realize that the list in this article is a joke, but seriously I just don't see any of these people in the role. Some names on that list (Kim Kardashian?) are of course more infuriating than others.

Since we're all shooting from the hip here, maybe Violante Placido (from the recent film "The American") if she can get the accent right. Or Michelle Ryan (from that sad pathetic Bionic Woman remake) IF it turns out that she actually can act after all. I'm not trying to be smarmy here- like I said, I really am stumped.

Sarah Lancaster,
Eleanor "Ellie" Bartowski from Chuck. A perfect match
