Elizabeth Hurley and Cary Elwes join TV's Wonder Woman

Mar. 4, 2011by: Paul Tassi

We probably won’t see her in a film for five years, but Wonder Woman is coming to TV. It was a bit head-scratching when Friday Night Light’s Adrianne Palicki was cast in the titular role, but now the rest of the cast is rounding out as well.

Elizabeth Hurley has signed on to play Veronica Cale, an evil scientist and business rival to Diana, and Carey Elwes has joined up as Henry Detmer, the acting CEO of Themyscira Industries. He acts like an uncle to Diana, but it’s possible he could be a love interest down the line. Ew.

Elwes hasn’t been on TV consistently since X-Files, and I haven’t heard much from Hurley in years. I would have thought she’d have been a candidate for Wonder Woman herself a few years ago with that figure.

I have a bad feeling about this show. I’m sure they’re going to try their best, but I just don’t know if the character can work in the modern era. I’d love to be proven wrong, but I just don’t see invisible jets and magic lassos impressing today’s audiences unless the show is executed perfectly.

The show is not gonna be executed perfectly...

The script is getting horrible reviews all over the place. I believe a superhero with a Greek mythos background can be successful but this won't be the show to prove it.

I'm fine with the looks but don't know too much about her other than that. Kind of a big role imo, tv or not.

I knew when this was first announced that this wasnt a good idea. God elizabeth hurley is so damn hot though. Yeah 2020 or 2018 seems right for a JLA movie lol.

It's a shame Cary Elwes career has gone to straight-to-DVD movies and TV dreck. Not the best actor by any means, but a reliable actor. And he was in The Princess Bride! He could kill kittens and babies and he'd still have a place in my childhood heart!

Knight Rider Reboot anybody?

This should probably be left alone. I like Elwes very much, but Hurley as a scientist is preposterous. The only good thing it has going for it is David E. Kelley is involved. I'm not holding my breath though.

Rallying cry of the sensible: "Wait and see"

I'm not saying it'll be good or bad... because I haven't seen it yet, and I have a sneaking suspicion nobody else has either...

Time to place bets... which show will get more episodes to air before it's canceled, The Cape or Wonder Woman??? Unless Wonder Woman goes all T&A, I say it won't last a season.

its wonder woman

of course it will be awful its supposed to be, its about a lady with a truth lasso and a invisible plane. That why they cast terrible actors bc the source material is awful as well. Now I hope the 12 people who were gonna watch this arent to bummed.
