Sorry, we couldn’t resist. Deadline reports that “Princess Bride” and “Saw” actor Cary Elwes as joined David E. Kelley’s “Wonder Woman” reboot for NBC. Also joining the cast are Pedro Pascal (“The Good Wife”) and Tracie Thoms (“Wonderfalls”).
The pilot stars “Friday Night Lights” veteran Adrianne Palicki in the title role, as well as two others. Palicki will play Wonder Woman, no description needed; Diana Themyscira, successful corporate executive who is publically known to be Wonder Woman and Diana Prince, her second alter-ego.
Elwes will be playing Henry Detmer, the acting CEO of Themyscira Industries, who is deeply devoted to Diana. He is like an uncle to her, but there is a chance of him becoming a love interest in the future (should the project be picked up). This is Elwes’ second TV series regular gig after his stint on “The X-Files.”
Pascal is set to play police officer Ed Indelicato, who acts as a liaison between Wonder Woman/Diana and the police, who, like Detmer, is devoted and loyal to Diana. Thomas will play Etta, Diana Themyscira’s personal assistant.
It was recently announced that Elizabeth Hurley will be playing the show’s villainess Veronica Cale.
