It didn't take the golden lasso of truth to get Lynda Carter to share her thoughts on Adrianne Palicki being cast as the new Wonder Woman.
In an interview with the Baltimore Sun, Carter — who played the Amazing Amazon in the popular '70s TV series — sounds off about David E. Kelley's upcoming NBC reboot.
"I know she is going to be really nervous about it, just because you would be," Carter says of Palicki, adding, "I would never offer her any advice. Nor would she probably want any. If she wants to talk to me, that would be a whole different thing. But I would never offer, 'Now let me tell you how to do this.' She's an actress and she's a good actress and she's beautiful, and I hope she kicks butt."
Kelley's show will center on the superhero's alter-ego Diana Prince, who juggles being a crime fighter, corporate executive and modern woman.
"I spoke with David yesterday, and he's really, really excited about it," says Carter. "I think the story needs to be retold. It needs to have a fresh look at it. It affected a lot of people. I think it's time, I think it's important to have it out there again."
When asked whether she'll appear on the series, Carter deflected the question as if wearing Wonder Woman's impenetrable bracelets: "That is something that I … even if I were, I couldn't tell you."
