New "Wonder Woman" star Adrianne Palicki has already made an enemy: Elizabeth Hurley is set to appear in the upcoming David E. Kelley series as the Amazing Amazon's archnemesis Veronica Cale.
"Thrilled to be doing the NBC pilot Wonder Woman,” Hurley tweeted yesterday. “I’ll be playing the evil villain. Can’t wait.”
According to Deadline.com, Hurley's villainess is a "beautiful, highly educated head of one of the biggest pharmaceutical companies in the country who is afflicted with serious deep-seated Wonder Woman envy."
Hurley isn't the only addition to the "Wonder Woman" cast. Deadline reports that "Cold Case" star Tracie Thoms will play the cheery personal assistant of the superhero's alter ego Diana Themyscira, while actor Pedro Pascal has landed the role of a police officer who befriends Diana.
What do you think of Hurley being cast as Wonder Woman's rival?
