Why Adrianne Palicki Was Cast As Wonder Woman

In my previous post, I said Palicki won the role of Wonder Woman because was the only actress invited to test for it.

Well, MTV's short article sheds some light on why she was the only actress considered for the role, and there's a connection to the pilot's director, Jeffrey Reiner. Palicki was on Friday Night Lights, right? Jeffrey Reiner directed Friday Night Lights.  Even though Reiner is only slated so far to direct the pilot episode for Wonder Woman, Reiner might have had some pull with casting for the title role.

But before fans start ranting and dooming the show, the original Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter tweeted her congratulations!
