New York... now with very important Wonder Woman update!


Sorry no new post yesterday. I am in NY for the shoe market and it's just been so busy.

But here is something I need your help with:

If they were to make a movie version of Wonder Woman? Who would you cast? I was talking to a shoe designer and for some reason we got on the topic and just couldn't seem to dream up the perfect person. I said Evangeline Lily, but that doesn't seem right.

Let's play casting agent today. Let me know your pick.

***Update!***

Well, have I got news for you...here in Australia there's a model/media personality (is that an oxymoron??)called Megan Gale. She's the spitting image of Linda Carter and she's just been cast in a US movie to play Wonder Woman. Google her to get a pic and you'll see what I mean. She's big here in Oz as well as Italy, but no doubt never been heard of in the US.


And here she is:



Coconuts or breasts? You make the call!

And my fiance doesn't even need to tell me. I know, I know... she's now officially on your Free-Pass-Five List. Have at it, mister.

Evangeline Lilly is a good choice, I think.

Is anybody showing those boots? I could use a pair of those.

Maggie Gyllenhaal.

backups:

Brooke Shields

Geena Davis (if she could act)

I am proud to say that Linda Carter went to my high school in AZ. They have the picture you posted along with her yearbook picture framed and up in the Administration Building. Interestingly enough, they have a similar shrine dedicated to Steven Spielberg because he went there as well.

paola said...

Oh yes, Maggie Gyllenhall definitely.

My vote is for Jessica Biel; although, one of the gossip sites is saying she has already turned down the role.

Jennifer Garner!

Delta Burke. If the movie were about a menopausal Wonder Woman prone to depression and opbesity. Which obviously would make a much more entertaining flick.

is it weird to think of angelina jolie?

Visual Smarts said...

Jessica Alba or Kerstin Dunst with a good colour job. Kate Winslett also with a good dye job and an American accent. Nobody flat chested.

coco+kelley said...

me. definitely me.

ok maybe not. what about rachel mcadams - and they let her keep her kick ass pink highlights :) i keep hearing everyone say kate beckinsale...

i think they need to find an unknown!

Petunia Face's suggestion is beyond brilliant.

katiedid said...

What about Katherine McPhee...same look, same amount of acting talent.

Starr Jones.

JJ said...

I am conflicted. I like both Delta Burke and Star Jones.

I just noticed that the pilot episode for Gossip Girl has 2 different women playing Blair's mom. It's seamless though.

So, I think the WW movie could start with Delta Burke as Wonder Woman and then halfway through seamlessly switch to Star Jones.

(What's the use--You just know it will go to someone totally wrong, like Scarlett Johansson.)

JJ:

Thank you!!! I thought I was the only one who noticed the Blair's-mom switcheroo.
(I like the second one, because her voice is more drag-queen-like.)

jennifer garner, angelina jolie , jessica biel would be good choices

How funny! I thought of Delta Burke, too. She'd just bitch slap the hell out of someone.

I heard she's in rehab for her OCD and for hoarding.

Maybe Elizabeth Taylor as a very elderly and decrepit Wonder Woman.

I like the idea of Maggie Gyllenhaal, or maybe Drew Barrymore.

Elton John?

Kim said...

Rachel Weisz?

Kim said...

or Chyna Doll?

Decorno said...

Delta Burke cracks my ass up.

JJ, your idea is beautiful. Maybe Tarantino and Rodruiguez could team up again and each direct half of the filml, like those crazy explotation films they did recently. I want it to be wonderfully horrible camp.

Chyna Doll is also brilliant. I **swear** "she" is actually a he, so I would want John Waters to direct and to have Chyna, um, adjust her package, so to speak, every few scenes as more than a wink to what I am certain is her true sex.

25 posts on this already? You guys love you some Wonder Woman!

Wonder Woman's mini-me could be Kelly Osbourne.

Dont know why! Cameron Diaz was the only one who came to mind!

Shannan Doherty...then she can quit in the middle of it.

Cleopatra said...

How about Jennnifer Connelly?

My brother just walked by and he says Beyonce cos in his words its time to 'make that superhero thing multicultural and shit.'

Anonymous said...

Susan Hayward would have been good...

Kwana said...

Sarah Silverman would be a hilarous Wonder Woman.

Boy George!

dean said...

Rachel Bilson came to mind, even though shes kinda tiny. I think she'd be adorable and spunky.

But I also like Evangeline Lilly.

Okay, I'll admit it, they are both totally my girl-crushes...

Maybe a movie in which six Wonder Women fight for dominance?

Is Mariska Hartigay too old?

Jessica Biel.

I'm in NY too! Great weather, huh?

Jessica Biel has no presence whatsoever.

Decorno said...

Jennifer - the weather has been crazy! A little humid yesterday, but not bad in general. I am always glad it's not snowing and raining when I am in NY for work. Because of my job, I feel like I have to wear the best shoes, and then fucking New York busts out a little winter snow and rain in its lame attempt to destroy my kickass shoes.

This Megan Gale chick looks totally vapid, like that Brook Burke from "Rock Star."

Kelly Wearstler? since she's supposedly everywhere..
the first superhero-decorator.

Pet My KWID said...

and Ms. Wearstler (nee Gallagher) does have the necessary boobage...

Maggie Gyllenhall is a good call...althought I'd have to be patriotic and choose the aussie. Those, um, coconuts seem to be a bit larger than the last time I saw her...

This woman needs to get a bra that fits, instead of squishing her ta-tas to the middle to make cleavage!

blondes have more fun, so i say madonna!

at least she's not all skin and bones. yah for girls with curves.

teaorwine said...

pigtown...I read that also about Delta in the WP today. I love her on Boston Legal!

I actually think Lynda Carter would love to be cast as the Wonder Woman once again. Remember Debra Winger as her little sister/ sidekick?? Way too funny.
