There’s a buzz in Hollywood about the new “it” girl. Her name is Adrianne Palicki, and her role in Wonder Woman is set to make her a certified star. This is a long way from home for the Toledo, OH native that is best known for her role in the NBC “Friday Night Lights” television series.
It wasn’t hard to tell that Palicki would become a star. She has the grace of a seasoned veteran, but she’s still very hungry and eager to land more opportunities. Adrianne was born in 1983 in the month of May. The 5’11 star that ran track in high school graduated from Whitmer High in 2001.
Her acting career did not take off until several years later when she land roles in well-known shows like Smallville and CSI in 2004. Most of these roles would be one time deals that would eventually be overshadowed by her reoccurring role in the “Friday Night Lights” series. This was a major change, but Palicki would find an even greater calling 50 episodes later as she transitioned into movies.
Palicki carried her big screen presence from small budget films like “Rewrite” and “Getting Rachel Back” to action films like and “Legion” in 2010 and “Red Dawn” in 2011. These were highly anticipated films, but nothing has topped the anticipation that comes with her newest role as Wonder Woman.
Lynda Carter was the original Wonder Woman on the television series. The big screen adaptation has been in works for years, but there was a lot of debate on the right woman for the role. Palicki’s hard work through the years has paid off because fans noticed. Producers, movie directors, and writers also noticed. The original star of “Wonder Women”, Lynda Carter, has even praised Palicki and agreed that she is perfect for the role.
Pictures of Palicki side by side with the retro Carter pics have already surfaced on the internet. Lots of fans agree that the Lynda Carter did a great job in the original role. Fans of Palicki, on the other hand, are confident that Adrianne can pull off an even better performance in the revamped role of Wonder Woman. The pictures that have hit the web show signs of a sexy new Wonder Woman that only Palicki could deliver. She is really taking the role to new heights as fans flood the internet with forums and social media sites to discuss this upcoming event.
Adrianne is taking it all in stride as she continues to land more roles in action-packed movies. She is already slated to join the G.I. Joe cast for the sequel in 2012. She’s a young star that is finally gaining the attention she deserves.

Adrianne Palicki is the latest name to board Paramount Pictures’ upcoming Untitled G.I. Joe Sequel, says a story at Deadline. She will play a key part of Joe team, Lady Jaye.
The film, to be directed by John Chu (Step Up 3D, Never Say Never), will continue the toy-inspired world depicted in 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra with a primarily new cast (except for the returning Channing Tatum as Duke, Ray Park as Snake Eyes and, likely, Byung Hun-lee as Stormshadow). Newcomers include Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock, Elodie Yung as Jinx, DJ Cotrona as Flint and RZA as The Blind Master.
Palicki is best known for her role on Friday Night Lights and for her casting in the recent Wonder Woman pilot that was, ultimately, not picked up. Her character is an integral part of the Joes and a master of espionage.
G.I. Joe 2 is headed into production very soon with an eye towards a summer 2012 release.

Amid the flurry of renewals and series orders given today by NBC was word that David E. Kelly’s Wonder Woman wouldn’t be getting picked up by the network, according to Entertainment Weekly’s Lynette Rice. It had been the subject of negative reactions to the initial script (which was reportedly re-written at least once) and the costume (which was edited but not enough for some), culminating in reportedly mixed screenings. The pilot starred Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights) as the venerable superhero, but Kelly’s version looked at the character through three different lenses (the hero, the woman, and the alter ego). The pilot also starred Tracie Thoms, Cary Elwes, and Elizabeth Hurley.
