Big News of the Week: Adrianne Palicki is You New Wonder Woman: Please if you will, step into the 9th Green time machine all the way back to October of 2010 when hearing that David E. Kelly was working on a Wonder Woman television show I commented,
“No word on who will fill Lynda Carter’s spandex, but if I were a casting director, I would definitely screen test the recently unemployed and currently brunette Tyra Collette.”Keep in mind that the show just got picked up for a pilot and there are no guarantees it will make it to air and no live action actress has donned the golden bracelets since Lynda Carter hung up her lasso of truth thirty two years ago (but this is NBC and they have been throwing everything at the wall the last couple seasons).
The casting comes shortly after another casting I suggested that Trya’s nemesis Lyla Garrity become one of Charlie’s Angels for ABC’s reboot. Unfortunately the casting director didn’t take my other suggestions of Veronica Mars and Lana Lang to fill out the trio. But with my tract record of finding role for Friday Night Lights alums, now I need to scourer the trades to find Coach and Mrs. Taylor some work. Or maybe Parenthood should take up my suggestion that the Taylors should move to California to coach Drew’s football team.

Video of the Week: After the cinematic masterpiece that was Blue Crush, I assumed that we would get a chicks surfing movie once a year for a while, but no luck, not even a crappy straight to video “sequel” that has nothing to do with the orginal aside from the name and stolen plot. Finally almost a decade later Hollywood is going back to the beach with Soul Surfer.
First, if this chick is willing to amputate her arm for a role, just give her an Oscar now. Second, Carrie Underwood? What? Third, I had no clue that was Helen Hunt until they credited her. What has she been up to since Mad About You ended?
Next Week Pick of the Week: Episodes, Tomorrow at 9:30 on Showtime: With all the hype of the Friends returning to television, it doesn’t look like they will spend much time of the schedule together with Chandler replacing Monica and Joey’s show ending its season already. The press release teases
