Paramount's 'G.I. Joe 2' Casts 'Friday Night Lights' Star Adrianne Palicki
Adrianne Palicki is apparently having a heroic streak after NBC passed on the Wonder Woman pilot. The Friday Night Lights actress has been cast as another iconic heroine.
A spokesperson for Palicki confirms to The Hollywood Reporter that she’s joining G.I. Joe 2: Cobra Strikes in the lead role of Lady Jaye in the sequel directed by Jon M. Chu.

Palicki joins returning cast members Channing Tatum (Duke), Ray Park (Snake Eyes), and Byung-hun Lee (Storm Shadow) and new cast members RZA (Blind Master), D.J. Cotrona (Flint), Dwayne Johnson (Roadblock), and Elodie Yung (Jinx) for the sequel produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura for Paramount.
Besides Friday Night Lights and the now dead-in-the-water Wonder Woman pilot, Palicki starred in Fox's short-lived Lone Star. Also, she stars in the feature film Red Dawn, debuting in theatres later this year.
