Last week, the big news was that Lindsay Lohan wanted to play Wonder Woman. And the world wept. But who would be better for the part of Wonder Woman than Charisma Carpenter? Sure we’ve only seen her in the kind of ditsy roles she played on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Veronica Mars, but I think she just might have the acting chops to pull it off. Superhero Hype has this bit from her interview with TV Guide magazine:
TVGuide.com: Hey, are you going to star in Wonder Woman? [Buffy creator Joss Whedon is writing and will direct a big-screen take on the superheroine, to be produced by Joel Silver.] What a great fit that would be.
Carpenter: I know! From your lips to God’s ears… or Joss’… or Joel’s….
Of course, what actress doesn’t want to be Wonder Woman? I mean, we’re not talking about that piece of crap Catwoman, now. Joss Whedon is the man, and this movie is totally going to rock. Just looking at Charisma Carpenter, though, you know she would be perfect.
