Um … remember that really garish Wonder Woman costume that was made for the failed NBC TV series that got canceled before it even made it to air? Well, the folks at NBC — being the frugal folks that they are — decided to try and get some use out of that WW costume. The costume was originally made for actress Adrianne Palicki to wear on her own show but it is now being worn by actress Erica Durance (formerly of Smallville) on Harry’s Law in an upcoming new episode. Click below to check out the second life of Wonder Woman‘s costume.
Don’t mess with Wonder Woman. This Wednesday on Harry’s Law (NBC, 9/8c), Erica Durance takes justice into her own hands while dressed as the iconic super heroine, and we’ve got your first look at the Smallville alum’s mighty fists of fury! Having suffered abuse in the past, Durance’s character, Annie, takes a violent — and controversial — course of “self-therapy” in order to cope and to prevent the same thing from happening to other women. “I got to get back into that kind of [fighting] stuff, the punching,” Durance told TVLine when we visited the show’s set in November. And judging from the preview clip below, she throws a mean right hook. But those jabs don’t come without big consequences, which is what leads Annie to seek legal help from her old high school classmate, Adam (Nate Corddry). “She’s done a couple of things and gone too far in the eyes of society,” explains Durance. “So she’s actually under a lot of fire.”
I mean … yeah. This is pretty effing hilarious, if you ask me. I’m sure NBC paid a pretty penny to have this costume made so I can understand their desire to get as much use out of it as possible. I bet this tacky thing was hanging in a closet somewhere and some brilliant writer got the brilliant idea to use it in this episode of Harry’s Law. Meh, Adrienne isn’t using it anymore … so why not let Erica take it for a spin. I don’t watch Harry’s Law but I might tune in just to see this Wonder Woman suit in action. I’m still a fan of WW so, yeah, this is a cute enough gimmick to pique my interest.
