Cary Elwes has joined the cast of David E. Kelley's Wonder Woman pilot, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
He's set to star opposite Adrienne Palicki, who nabbed the role of Wonder Woman/Diana Themyscira, aka Diana Prince. Elwes will play Themyscira Industries acting CEO Henry Detmer. He's devoted to Diana and looks out for her interests like an uncle would, but it's possible he could become a love interest later. The news was first reported by Deadline.

Friday Night Lights alum Adrianne Palicki has lassoed the starring role in NBC's reworking of Wonder Woman. In the new series pilot from David E. Kelley (Harry's Law), Palicki will play Wonder Woman (aka Diana Prince), a Los Angeles-based crime fighter who leads a double life as a corporate executive.
Zach Gilford, Taylor Kitsch, Gaius Charles
In the second part of our farewell to Friday Night Lights, producers and cast talk about the show's controversial storylines (murder! abortion!), the show-saving fan campaigns, sending the Taylors to East Dillon and (unbelievably!) hating on the Panthers.
Part 1: Friday Night Light comes to an end: Producers and cast remember building Dillon
TVGuide.com spoke to stars Kyle Chandler (Eric Taylor), Connie Britton (Tami Taylor), Aimee Teegarden (Julie Taylor), Taylor Kitsch (Tim Riggins), Zach Gilford (Matt Saracen), Matt Lauria (Luke Cafferty), Michael B. Jordan (Vince Howard), and executive producers Jason Katims and David Nevins about the long road to that final Texas sunset. The series finale airs Wednesday at 9 pm on DirecTV...
Adrianne Palicki found a cathartic way to get revenge on those responsible for canceling her critically acclaimed series Lone Star earlier this season — by imagining that they were her victims in her turn as a serial killer on Criminal Minds.
Friday Night Lights
Spoiler alert! After an emotional five-season run, Friday Night Lights will go dark next year (DirecTV's 101 Network airs the series finale February 9; NBC will replay the season, likely this summer). But before the last football is tossed, much-missed Matt Saracen (Zach Gilford), Tyra Colette (Adrianne Palicki), Jason Street (Scott Porter) and Landry Clarke (Jesse Plemons) return to Dillon, Texas. Also back: sprung-from-the-slammer Tim Riggins (Taylor Kitsch, who will appear in the last five episodes).
Even though her Fox series, Lone Star, got an early axe, Adrianne Palicki is still one busy actress. She will be back for Friday Night Lights' final two episodes and is currently shooting a guest starring role on Criminal Minds, set to air in 2011.
"It's in the vain of Natural Born Killers or Kalifornia," says Adrianne of the killer Minds episode. "I never played...
Friday Night Lights

It's a provocative premise: In Fox's Lone Star, Bob Allen has been raised a Texas con man, grifting through life until he falls in love for real — twice. Now he wants to go straight, without losing either woman, or the worlds they live in (respectively, an oil-rich dynasty in Houston, and a tight-knit small town in Midland.)
Video: Lone Star cast talks about the pilot
Following someone leading a double life on TV can be done — see: Don Draper, Dexter, Nurse Jackie — but it can be tricky. Will Lone Star be a 22-episode tease? Will his ruse never fall apart? Will his wives never meet? And if they do, does the show morph into something else? Series star James Wolk talks to TVGuide.com about taking on his first major role (and changing his professional name to go with it), playing the sociopath you root for, and what he thinks of the show's super-sexy ad campaign. ...
