Another casting announcement for the NBC pilot Wonder Woman has been made, and this time from the actress herself. Elizabeth Hurley tweeted that she has been cast as the villain in the new series from David E. Kelley.
The show is supposed to be a non-campy update to the original show and revolves around “a vigilante crime fighter in LA but also a successful corporate executive and a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life.
Elizabeth Hurley will be playing Veronica Cale, an evil scientist and businesswoman with a secret, nefarious plan. Although the role is technically being billed as a one-time guest stint, there’s every reason to believe it’ll evolve into a recurring gig should the show get picked up.
