She's going from playing a small town girl in "Friday Night Lights" to one of the most famous female superheroes in history.
Adrianne Palicki, who played the sexy Tyra Collette in "FNL", has been cast to play the role of Wonder Woman in David E. Kelley's ("Ally McBeal," "The Practice") NBC pilot, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.
The show will retell the DC Comics story in which Wonder Woman, also known as Diana Prince, must juggle two lives, one as a crime fighting superhero and another as a successful businesswoman.
In addition to her "Wonder Woman" role, Palicki will also star in the feature film 'Red Dawn,' hitting theaters this year.
