    Wonder Woman, revisited

    Well, at least we know who it will be for the new TV series... If and when a movie is made, the heroine remains to be names (as far as I know).

    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    I've never seen her perform, but looking at Google Images I'll give her a strong maybe. As much as I personally dislike her, Megan Fox still is the first glance winner of looking the part (makeup will have to cover the tats).

    We'll see how it goes. My understanding is that she will be wearing the new Wonder Woman uniform, not the classic one that Linda Carter wore.

    She has no real acting credentials. Just look at what she has done so far. Her last movie was a real low budget comedy where she had the lead role and played a porn star that gets pregnant and has a baby. It was a total flop.

    However, she did just compete staring in the new remake of "Red Dawn". It will be coming out later this year in theatres. It will be interesting to see how good she will be in that movie. Perhaps she got some positive buzz from that part that helped her to land this role. I've heard that the girls in the new "Red Dawn" are as blood thirsty as the boys are in killing the Commies. So she probably had a lot of action/violence scenes.

    I must say that I don't have that much faith in NBC. They are a very troubled network. I'm doubtful that they have what it would take to pull this off. They have a couple of good comedy series, but most of their schedule is junk.

    And does she have what it will take for the part? You need both personality and physique to play Wonder Woman.

    She is 5' 11" tall, though, so she is a bit physically imposing:

    Well, she's known much more for her TV work, and this is a TV series, so I don't think she'll struggle too much in that arena. I don't watch Friday Night Lights, but I know it has favorable reviews... I think the success (or failure) of the show will rest much more heavily on the writing and general tone of the show - I think Ms. Palicki herself will be up to the job. Of course, I've been wrong before... :)

    Well, acting is acting, and to be Wonder Woman, you have to be able to come across as being larger than life. Wonder Woman is not a wimp.

    You are correct that good writing will be most important. I would be interested in knowing who will be producing the series, and what sort of track record they might have.

    This will not be an easy show to pull off successfully.

    For those of us that remember the original show, it's got a high standard to hit.

    It's from David E. Kelley, the guy who did L.A. Law, Ally McBeal, Chicago Hope, Boston Public, Boston Legal, Picket Fences, The Practice.... I'd say he's got a tiny bit of a track record. ;)

    Looking forward to this series, although I'm a sucker for damn near any comic book superhero project. I watched Friday Night Lights and this young lady can act and looks pretty good too.

    Ah, that sounds encouraging then. I admit that I watched both Ally McBeal and Boston Legal quite a bit.
