Behind the Scenes in Hollywood: Jessica Harbeck

28 December 2010 11:20 PM, PST | AfterEllen.com | See recent AfterEllen.com news »

If you were the kind of little girl who loved jumping out of trees, having play sword fights, and wearing costumes, then envy Jessica Harbeck, a professional stuntwoman. Not only does she get paid to be (fake) punched in the face and kicked around, she has a blast doing it. AfterEllen.com talked to Jessica about her work, being a woman in one of Hollywood's oldest boys' clubs, and her Best. Day. Ever. Hint: It involves lingerie and a football.

Jessica Harbeck: Stuntwoman

AfterEllen.com: The first thing a lot of people will probably wonder is how do you become a stuntwoman? It's not like you can major in it in college.

Jessica Harbeck: Getting into stunts is different for each person in the business. I got really lucky. I moved out here with the intention of getting into stunts, after finishing school in Boulder, Colorado.

Hendricks Eyeing Wonder Woman Role

23 December 2010 8:16 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Mad Men star Christina Hendricks is appealing to TV bosses to cast her in a small screen revamp of Wonder Woman because she has always wanted to play the sexy superhero.

Lynda Carter starred in The New Adventures of Wonder Woman, adapted from the classic DC Comic series, which aired in America from 1975 to 1979.

A 1990s remake was scrapped due to casting concerns over Carter's successor but Ally McBeal creator David E. Kelley has signed a deal with Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment bosses to write and produce a revamped version.

Casting details have yet to be announced but busty beauty Hendricks has already been linked to the lead - and the actress admits she'd love the speculation to come true.

She says, "I heard that rumour too - I don't know where it got started but I love it!

"I've been wanting to wear that outfit my whole life! I'd love to (do it). That would be such fun! Let's put it out there!" »

Wonder Woman's Got Commitment Issues

10 December 2010 12:51 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Why can't Wonder Woman find anyone to love her?

I'm not speaking of the character herself, but of the stagnant, languishing attempt to bring her star-spangled presence back to any screen, big or small.

In an interview with Zap2It, the recently announced stab that David E. Kelley was planning to take sounds like it's not gelling as rapidly as fans would like, with Kelley admitting his hesitation as to whether or not he is the right man for the job.

My opinion is that if you have to question whether or not such a beloved property with an enormously devoted fan base is your cup of tea, the best thing you can do for the fans, and yourself, is to back away slowly. No one wants to see yet another failed attempt at bringing a well-regarded superheroine to life. If you aren't 100% convinced you can bring your A game, »

Lynda Carter Responds To Megan Fox's Slam

11 November 2010 10:15 AM, PST | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Lynda Carter isn't paying too much attention to Megan Fox's rip of her iconic Wonder Woman character.

After Fox previously called Wonder Woman a "lame superhero," claiming she had no interest in stepping into the red, white & blue outfit and gold wristbands for David E. Kelley's upcoming reboot, Carter simply shrugged off the critique.

"To be honest with you, I was really offended," Carter told Access Hollywood Live's Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Thursday morning, before breaking out in laughter. "No, I'm teasing.

"I thought that her comment - she just didn't really get it. ...

Lynda Carter Tells Megan Fox to Stop Trashing Wonder Woman

9 November 2010 7:23 PM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

It was recently announced that a new "Wonder Woman" TV show is in the works, so when actress Lynda Carter stopped by FoxNews, the network asked her about the possibility of Megan Fox stepping into her boots. "Megan Fox actually kind of trashed Wonder Woman," said Carter. "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." Last year, when rumors began circulating that that Fox was being considered for the lead in a "Wonder Woman" movie, the actress said that the character is a "lame superhero," adding: "She flies around in her invisible jet and her weaponry is a lasso that makes you tell the truth." »

Lynda Carter Wants Megan Fox to Stop Trashing Wonder Woman

Filed under: Movie News, Cinematical

We all have our sacred cows. For statuesque beauty Lynda Carter -- and, we might add, millions of fan boys around the world -- it's Wonder Woman, the character she played so memorably on television for three seasons in the 1970s. It may have been many years since she donned the red, white and blue costume, but she still feels defensive about the Amazon superheroine and any who may dare to mock her. So when she was asked about the possibility of Megan Fox playing Wonder Woman in a new TV series under development, she pointed out that the young actress "actually kind of trashed Wonder Woman" last year. "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."

New York, Nov 9 – Actress Lynda Carter has reportedly told Megan Fox to stop ragging on Wonder Woman.

The 59-year-old actress strongly reacted to ‘Fox and Friends’ host Brian Kilmeade’s suggestion that Fox would make a great ‘Wonder Woman’ in the potential reboot.

Carter Urges Fox Not To 'Trash' Wonder Woman

9 November 2010 4:21 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Original Wonder Woman star Lynda Carter has ordered Megan Fox to stop "trashing" the superhero after the actress branded the character "lame".

TV bosses are planning to revive Wonder Woman, originally played by Carter in the 1970s, for a new small screen outing and Fox was said to be one of the actresses in contention for the role.

The Transformers beauty spoke out about the rumours, insisting she would never play such a part, telling Britain's FHM magazine, "She's lame. She flies around in an invisible jet, but she's not invisible. I don't get it."

And Carter admits she was annoyed by Fox's comments. She tells Fox news, "Megan Fox actually kind of trashed Wonder Woman. 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.”

But Carter is backing the idea of a new TV show, insisting Ally McBeal producer David E. Kelly is the ideal choice to develop the series.

She adds, "He’s great at the underlying comedy and character development. I spoke to him several weeks ago and he is perfect for it because he will really give the characters life. It’s not just going to be a cartoon or a comic book thing, which is really what I think we tried to do.” »

Casting for ABC.s Proposed 'Hulk' Series

24 October 2010 9:30 PM, PDT | CinemaSpy | See recent CinemaSpy news »

By now you've heard the news that Marvel Entertainment and ABC are reportedly considering a revival of the Hulk on television. Disney, ABC's parent company, acquired Marvel Entertainment in 2009, and this June the company launched Marvel Television to create small screen adaptations based on its vast archive of comic characters.

Why the two are pondering Hulk for TV we're not sure. Perhaps it's the fact that the Jekyll and Hyde thing plays well as a story device for serialized television, perhaps it's because the Bill Bixby/Lou Ferrigno series from the late '70s lasted for five seasons on CBS. Expect this new Hulk to be created using CGI, however.

The Hulk series is said to be a priority amid several ideas Marvel's new television unit has pitched to ABC. It's announcement comes shortly after news that another comic book hero — DC's Wonder Woman — is also readying for a return to TV. »

Superheroes on the small screen: Which will work best and which do we want?

20 October 2010 3:01 AM, PDT | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

By Michael Pellegrini

Marvel has made no secret of its strategy for big-screen adaptations of its iconic titles.

Solo releases for Iron Man, Thor and Captain America are paving the way to its ensemble epic The Avengers. Beyond that, there is a third Iron Man on the calendar, an Iron Fist film being scripted and several other possibilities such as Doctor Strange in the pipeline.

But that's not the total plan for live-action projects. The studio also has its sights set on beaming superheroes into your living room.

Marvel's TV division is developing a new Incredible Hulk series with ABC. No word yet on whether it will feature Mark Ruffalo, who will play Bruce Banner - and motion-capture the monster himself - in The Avengers.

The first attempt at bringing the jade giant to TV saw Bill Bixby portray Dr David Banner (that's right, David not Bruce) and bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno »

New Wonder Woman Live Action TV Series in the Works?

8 October 2010 8:05 AM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

With the recent announcement that Zack Snyder will be directing a new Superman movie [1], potential news about another major DC Comics adaptation has been understandably overshadowed. There was a lot of speculation about the possibility of a new Wonder Woman movie back in July, with reports that David Goyer might finally bring the Amazon Princess to the big screen. That doesn't appear to be happening, but last week news started to leak out about something else: a brand new Wonder Woman TV series. It turns out Warner Brothers Television is developing a new live action take for the small screen, and they've enlisted the help of an unexpected heavy hitter: David E. Kelley, creator of such legal dramas as Ally McBeal, Boston Legal and The Practice. While it remains to be seen if Diana will be a lawyer in this new version (maybe Kelley should take on She-Hulk instead), the »

'Lie to Me's' Kelli Williams wonders about David E. Kelley's 'Wonder Woman'

7 October 2010 1:21 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Kelli Williams knows the wonders David E. Kelley can work for women.

Thus, the co-star of the just-resumed Fox Monday drama "Lie to Me" is eager to see what the multiple-Emmy-winning producer of her earlier series "The Practice" -- as well as "Ally McBeal" and "Boston Legal" -- will do with Wonder Woman. Kelley is building a new show around the iconic DC Comics character for corporate cousin Warner Bros. Television to market.

"David is such a great writer, and that was such a fantastic experience, he spoiled me," Williams tells Zap2it. "He loved 'Ally McBeal,' because that really was linked into his humor, so maybe this will be a great thing for him. I'll sure watch it! I'm very curious."

In fact, Williams admits she "wanted to be Wonder Woman. I think I was her for Halloween three times when I was a kid." And if »
