Adrianne Palicki as NBC‘s 2011 Wonder Woman has been approved by Lynda Carter, the first live incarnation of the DC Comics superhero. Lynda Carter recently sat down with Access Hollywood and was asked a few questions about Adrianne Palicki and David E. Kelley‘s Wonder Woman reboot.
Here is interview with Lynda Carter:
LOS ANGELES, Calif. —
New “Wonder Woman” Adrianne Palicki can breathe a bit easier now, now that she’s got the seal of approval from the original Wonder Woman, herself.
During an interview with Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Tuesday’s Access Hollywood Live, Lynda Carter talked about the “Wonder Woman” reboot from David E. Kelley and the show’s new leading lady.
“She’s got quite a body! She looks good,” Lynda told Billy and Kit of Adrianne, when shown a photo of Adrianne in the iconic superhero costume.
While Adrianne’s reboot costume sticks fairly close to the original, with the wrist cuffs, gold lasso and red corset top, there are a few differences, such as blue pants instead of short shorts.
Although Lynda gave the thumbs up to the reimagining, she admitted she’s a bit biased towards her own iconic attire.
“Am I partial to my costume? Of course I am,” she added. “But I think that David [E.] Kelley is a great writer and I think everyone will be surprised.”
As for whether Lynda will be a part of the new TV pilot for NBC, the veteran actress said fans will just have to wait and see.
“Any chance we’ll see you [in it] if it goes to series?” Kit asked Lynda.
“I can’t tell,” a coy Lynda smiled. “I definitely have talked to [Kelley].”
Even if she doesn’t appear on-screen, perhaps Lynda – who just released her third studio album, “Crazy Little Things” – might lend her voice to the project?
“What about singing the theme song?” Kit suggested.
“Now there’s an idea!” she sheepishly grinned.

If the cameo happens, Lynda Carter (also pictured here: Lynda Carter, Wonder Woman) will be joining the Wonder Woman 2011 cast that already includes Elizabeth Hurley, Tracie Thoms, Justin Bruenin, Cary Elwes, Pedro Pascal, Kelly Galindo, Joseph Gatt, and Brett Tucker.
