Lynda Carter has some fighting words for Megan Fox: Stop trashing Wonder Woman.
During a recent appearance on "Fox and Friends," Carter, who starred as Wonder Woman in the popular '70s TV series, was asked whether she thought Fox would be a good fit for the upcoming small-screen reboot.
"Megan Fox actually kind of trashed Wonder Woman,” Carter, 59, said. “She said she thought it was dumb, like ‘what’s the big whoop making people tell the truth.’ I like her, I just thought she shouldn’t trash Wonder Woman.”
In an interview last year, Fox – who was being considered for a film about the Amazing Amazon - told the London Times the comic character was "lame," adding, “She flies around in her invisible jet and her weaponry is a lasso that makes you tell the truth. I just don’t get it. Somebody has a big challenge on their hands, whoever takes that role. But I don’t want to do it.”
While casting for the upcoming new TV series has yet to be announced, Carter believes the show will be a hit with "Ally McBeal" producer David E. Kelley at the helm.
“I spoke to him several weeks ago and he is perfect for it because he will really give the characters life," says Carter, who is performing her music act "Wicked Cool" at NYC's Feinstein's at Loews Regency through November 13. "It’s not just going to be a cartoon or a comic book thing, which is really what I think we tried to do.”
