The 'Wonder Woman' That Never Was: Watch Scenes From the Rejected Pilot (VIDEO)

by Chris Harnick, posted Jul 22nd 2011 12:00PM
Wonder WomanNBC's purposed 'Wonder Woman' reboot ruffled quite a few feathers -- mine included -- but the pilot never made it to series.

However, a few unfinished scenes -- you can still see some wires and the effects aren't completed -- from David E. Kelley's pilot starring Adrianne Palicki have made it onto the web.

There's some pretty decent action with a chase scene and Wonder Woman taking on a bunch of dudes in hot pants, but that's when the enjoyable parts stop.

The clips that contain dialogue, including one of Palicki as WW's alter ego Diana yelling about merchandising Wonder Woman's breasts, are painful.

Watch the clips below, while you can.

Thanks to TV.com for the find.

Who Should Replace Lisa Edelstein on 'House'?

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jun 23rd 2011 4:00PM
Lisa Edelstein, 'House'Cuddy has always been the voice of reason at Princeton Plainsboro, but next season there'll be a new boss on 'House.'

Lisa Edelstein, the actress whose character has bickered with (and eventually hooked up with) Dr. House, will not be returning for the show's eighth -- and likely final -- season. Instead, we just learned she'll be headed to 'The Good Wife.'

We know Huddy fans don't want to think about it, but who could ever replace her? It's possible they could promote from within, but they probably don't want to ruin the team dynamic either. And if they bumped Wilson up to bossman status, that would certainly complicate his friendship with House even more.

So we've come up with a list of strong contenders ... all women, as it turns out, so I guess we like that sexual tension, too. I mean, someone's gonna have to be the soft feminine shoulder for House to cry on when his favorite sparring partner says goodbye, right?

'Wonder Woman' Pilot Gets a Rewrite, Adds More Butt-Kicking

by Chris Harnick, posted Apr 21st 2011 11:35AM
Adrianne PalickiRemember how bothered fans were (myself included) by David E. Kelley's 'Wonder Woman' pilot script? Well, it's gotten a rewrite!

According to io9, the pages were released in February and March as the pilot filmed. In them, Wonder Woman kicks a lot more butt.

The new script features Adrianne Palicki's WW tossing men around, emphasizing just how much of an Amazon she really is. There have also been some plot tweaks, including flashbacks to Themyscira.

So, just what are the Amazonian tweaks? If the pilot leaks or makes it to series, expect to see Wonder Woman picking up at least two thugs by the throat and even jamming her thumb into one man's eye after he puts a knife to her throat.

'Wonder Woman': First Look at Adrianne Palicki in Costume

by Maureen Ryan, posted Mar 18th 2011 4:30PM
Remember how many of us were concerned about David E. Kelley's 'Wonder Woman' remake? Consider my concerns doubled after today's release of the first image of Adrianne Palicki as the crime-fighting superheroine.

Let me be clear: I have nothing against Palicki, in fact, I have the greatest respect for her work on 'Friday Night Lights.' But shouldn't the star of NBC's 'Wonder Woman' remake look better than those celebrity impersonators you see strolling around the touristy parts of Los Angeles?

I'm summoning my inner Tim Gunn here, but I'm not sure even he could figure out a way to "make it work," as it were. The whole ensemble is way too shiny, and I'm not a fan of the matchy-matchy boots and skin-tight pants. The lasso is all right, I guess, but the rest of the accessories aren't much to write home about.

Despite a Promising Star, Will the 'Wonder Woman' Remake Be a Disaster?

by Maureen Ryan, posted Feb 17th 2011 9:15AM
This might be one of those good news, bad news situations.

The good news is, Adrianne Palicki has been cast in the title role of NBC's 'Wonder Woman.' Palicki is best known for playing Tyra Collette on 'Friday Night Lights,' a role the actress approached with great skill and heart. If anyone deserves to get a leading role in a high-profile project, it's Palicki.

The probably bad news (and it's not really news, at this stage): 'Wonder Woman' is being reimagined by TV uber-producer David E. Kelley, and the things Kelley is doing to the 'Wonder Woman' franchise is filling many TV observers and Diana Prince fans with dread.

Adrianne Palicki, 'Friday Night Lights' Alum, Is Our New 'Wonder Woman'

Adrienne Palicki, our new Wonder WomanHold onto your superhero underoos, people!

NBC released a wonderful bit of casting news today: 'Friday Night Lights' alum Adrianne Palicki is set to play the title role (and two alter-egos) in David E. Kelley's buzzed about 'Wonder Woman' reboot.

Kelley reportedly has a lot of work to do on the script, but Wonder Woman will have to do some serious heavy lifting of her own. Not only will Palicki play the star-spangled crimefighter, who's now based in L.A., but she'll also play her alter-ego, billionaire CEO Diana Themyscira and Diana's mousy assistant Diana Prince.

From capes to a power suit to no makeup and plain clothes? That's a stretch for an actress throughout their career -- this is all in the same one-hour drama.

'Lone Star' Series Premiere: Living Two Lives (VIDEO)

'Lone Star' Series Premiere: Living Two LivesIn order to be a successful con man, you have to be adept at living a double life. But what if you feel like going straight? If you've been living a lie for years, can you suddenly change course and become an honest man? That's the question posed in the premiere of 'Lone Star' (Mon., 9PM ET on Fox).

[Warning: Spoiler alert.]

Bob Allen (James Wolk) is two different people. In the suburban town of Midland, Texas, he's "Robert" -- a grifter who cheats local investors while living with his cute (yet clueless) girlfriend Lindsay (played by Eloise Mumford). Meanwhile, 400 miles away in the big city of Houston, he's "Bob" -- and he's married to Cat Thatcher (Adrianne Palicki), the daughter of an ultra-rich oil magnate. In Houston, he plays the part of the "perfect" husband, although he's also trying scam money from Cat's father Clint (Jon Voight).

The Cast of 'Lone Star' On the Show, Big Secrets & Jon Voight (VIDEO)

'Lone Star'My favorite new fall show boasts sexy stars, drama, intrigue and a pretty amazing cast. Basically, 'Lone Star' is the complete package.

The show's hot new leading man (James Wolk) will get to romance two fabulous ladies (Adrianne Palicki and Eloise Mumford) while he's also working a major con job on an oil magnate (Jon Voight) and trying hard to get out from under his fellow conman dad's (David Keith) thumb. It's soapy, dramatic, suspenseful, heartwarming ... oh, I'm done gushing. I'll let the stars do it for me.

I caught up with the 'Lone Star' cast to get their take on the show and their characters, working with the legendary Jon Voight and being one of the sexiest casts on TV.

'Lone Star' State of Mind - TCA Report

'Lone Star' cast
Though 'Dallas' is long gone, its influence lingers on across network television -- but no new series embodies the spirit of the Ewings quite as pervasively as 'Lone Star,' which creator Kyle Killen reportedly pitched as "'Dallas' without the cheese."

Charismatic James Wolk (who looks like the genetically engineered love-child of Kyle Chandler and George Clooney, good golly!) plays con-man Robert Allen, who is living two separate lives with two separate women in two different cities. In Midland, he lives with naive girlfriend Lindsay (Eloise Mumford) while bilking local investors out of their money, and in Houston, he's married to Cat (Adrianne Palicki) daughter of a wealthy oil magnate (played by Jon Voight). Through it all, his con-man father and mentor John (David Keith) is pulling the strings and trying to draw him into another con.

Highlights from the panel follow after the jump.

Gaius Charles, Kyle Chandler - Friday Night Lights
(S03E02) That episode title gets right to the heart of one of the main stories this week. Although, perhaps it should have been followed by a question mark. The backlash from Tami's decision to nix the jumbotron, which we all knew was coming, started this week, and things don't look so good for our favorite principal. Meanwhile, Brian continued to search for Smash, Tyra went back to basics for her campaign, Tim and Lyla continued the vicious cycle, and we got a little peek into Matt Saracen's past. It all made for a very good hour of television.

Katie Cassidy joins Harper's Island

by Brett Love, posted Aug 6th 2008 8:30AM

Katie Cassidy - Supernatural, Harper's IslandI don't know if I can think of a tougher gig on television than being a girl on Supernatural. Things just never seem to go well for any of them. The good news is that the show seems to be acting as a springboard and many of the actresses have been able to land on their feet with good roles.

Adrianne Palicki moved from playing Sam's sweetheart, Jessica, to Friday Night Lights. Alona Tal, who played the controversial Jo, moved right into a regular spot on Cane. It was short lived, but still a nice credit. And now they're joined by Katie Cassidy, the season three demon, Ruby. She's been added to the ever changing cast of Harper's Island. She takes over the role, originally played by Samantha Noble, of the bride whose wedding is the setting for a whole mess of murders. Now, if we can just get someone to hire Nicki Aycox, the sinister Meg.

Friday Night Lights panel: the DirecTV deal, two departures, and a new school year - TCA Report

FNL cast
NBC and its various cable stations are making their presentations today and tomorrow. Since it is Sunday, the critics got a little bit of a break and didn't have to start until noon, when a lunch session was held for Friday Night Lights. This session had a little bit of added juice, due to the unique deal NBC struck to have DirecTV shoulder the cost of producing the series in exchange for the rights to air new episodes on the satellite service first, before they air on NBC. Thirteen episodes will be produced and will air in October on DirecTV's 101 Network, and they'll air in February on the Peacock network.

Not surprisingly, there were as many questions about the new arrangement as there were about the creative aspects of the show. Show-runner Jason Katims and DirecTV entertainment head Eric Shanks fielded most of those questions, and the cast of the show fielded the rest.
