American Idol Gal = Latest Wonder Woman Rumor

It's been a week or so since the latest "Wonder Woman" casting news, so here's the latest one: Katharine McPhee? Huh? Apparently she was on that televised singing show that everyone in the universe watches. (Except me, I think.) Is Joss Whedon interested in hiring a non-acting amateur singer to play his beloved heroine? I've no idea.

From IGN FilmForce: "American Idol runner-up Katharine Too-Much-Booty-in-the-Pants McPhee has addressed rumors that she's on the short list to play Wonder Woman in the big-screen comic adaptation which will be written and directed by Joss Whedon.

The doe-eyed McPhee told Entertainment Weekly that there have been "you know, like, conversations" about the possibility, but added "but as far as the role being mine, or me being the lead up for it, I don't really know."

Miss McBooty added that she hasn't seen a script and that she is not too keen on the idea of doing a superhero movie as her first film. But she appears to be keeping her options open."

"Not too keen?" Please. This gal would probably build an invisible jet to land this role...

Ok, so they're considering giving the lead for an upcoming summer blockbuster to a pratically unknown singer? And this singer is "not too keen" on making her debut as the lead in a big-name, big-budget film?

Huh?

Sounds like she doesn't quite get the whole 'stardom' thing.

Obviously everyone involved in this thing has no idea what's going on. I hope it never gets made. I can just see this horrible hybrid of Aeon Flux and The Dukes of Hazzard or something. Cheesy TV retread meets Matrixy-Charlie's Angels-McG wire fight action crapola. Just forget about it.

Short list? Yeah her and a hundred other clueless bimbos. Casting couch fodder.

NO. Joss wouldn't do that to us.

I guess she figures that her runner-up singing ability is way too good for a big-budget Hollywood film.

On the flip side, Joss Whedon's draft of the script ain't too hot, and is not up to his usual quality so it's probably a good thing that non-actresses are turning it down. It'll make him write something better being Joss has the ability but no one will give him credit to cast who he wants.

Joss Whedon rocked Buffy, why wouldn't he rock Wonder Woman?

Because there is no way to 'rock' Wonder Woman.

Didn't she say that if she was cast as WW, it would be a mistake? (I heard this from the Entertainment Weekly interview)

I THINK SHE WOULD BE PERFECT AS WONDER WOMAN... SHES GORGEOUS.. CAN SHE ACT? WHO KNOWS.. BUT LETS FACE IT.. MO MATTER WHO THEY PUT IN THAT ROLE ITS NOT GONNA WIN AN OSCAR! THIS MOVIE WILL BE MORE ABOUT HOW IT LOOKS.. BUT LOOKS LIKE RACHEL BILSON IS SET TO PLAY THE ROLE.. VERY GOOD CHOICE.. BUT MCPHEE WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER!!
