Lynda Carter Reveals Opinion on New 'Wonder Woman' Costume

The star of the '70s series also says she discussed a cameo in the David E. Kelley pilot.


Lynda Carter, star of the '70s television series The New Adventures of Wonder Woman, thinks the latest incarnation of the D.C. Comics superheroine's outfit, unveiled Friday, hits the bullseye.

She tells The Hollywood Reporter, "What's not to like! Adrianne [Palicki] looks gorgeous and I'm really looking forward to seeing David E. Kelley's new series."

Carter's opinion runs contrary to some of the reactions to the skin-tight red and blue suit, which shows plenty of actress Adrianne Palicki's bosom and appears to be made of latex. Fox News claimed in July 2010 that artist Jim Lee's update of the outfit, which inspired the look for the pilot, lacked patriotism, while the Los Angeles Times ran a poll asking readers whether the new version was a good representation of the Amazon princess character or more akin to a Halloween costume.

NBC's Wonder Woman pilot has lined up a number of actors such as Cary Elwes and guest star Elizabeth Hurley but Carter will not be among those immediately taking part in the project.

She tells THR, "I talked to David [E. Kelley] about doing something in the pilot but with my new CD, Crazy Little Things coming out in April and touring for the album, we couldn't coordinate our schedules but you never know what will happen in the future. Stay tuned!"
