Adrianne Palicki as Wonder Woman (Probably no casting news was going to tip the scales in favor of this one. But close.)

Adrianne Palicki as Wonder Woman - when brilliant casting happens to horrible scripts -

FNL's Adrianne Palicki, the new Wonder Woman.

I don't usually write about pilot casting, but news that 'Friday Night Lights' alum Adrianne Palicki has been cast in David E. Kelley's 'Wonder Woman' pilot for NBC is too fascinating not to.
I don't have much interest in this project. It's Kelly and ... well, he's awful. I loved the first season of FNL though, loved  the show right up until it went off the rails with the whole murder thing, and then it kind of disappeared off to satellite TV and I never got back into it, though I've heard it got back to being one of the best shows on TV. I think Palicki will be fine, she is a talented actor, but frankly I would've thought Minka Kelly fit the bill a little better. Given Kelly's inability to write female characters, I'm not sure Palicki is going to be able to do anything with what she's given, so they might've been better off with actress that looks a bit more like the brunette (Lynda Carter) I think everybody was expecting.
