Like in a Nerd Dream, Adrianne Palicki Goes From Being Wonder Woman to Lady Jaye

Actress Adrianne Palicki, fresh off of a press tour where she tried on a bunch of Wonder Woman outfits or something, has already landed her next big job. The Friday Night Lights veteran is set to make her highest profile jump to the big screen yet when she joins the cast of G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes. There has been a lot of casting news coming out about this one in the last few days, and it’s reportedly because Cobra Strikes got put on the fast track for a release next summer once it became clear that the Star Trek sequel was going to need more time to get made. Recently we’ve gotten news that Dwayne Johnson has joined the cast as Roadblock, the RZA as the Blind Master, and D.J. Cotrona as Flint.

Palicki has been chosen to play Lady Jaye, and if I remember my cartoon continuity correctly, she was often romantically entangled with Flint. It might then be important to speculate on whether or not there is any onscreen chemistry to be had between Palicki and Cotrona. On the other hand, if I remember my G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra continuity correctly, onscreen chemistry might not be the sort of thing they’re worried about. Perhaps we should speculate on how she would look in one of those robotic urban assault suits instead. As long as there’s not too much pleather I’m sure it’ll be fine. Yo Joe! [Deadline Valparaiso]
