First Look at Erica Durance as Wonder Woman on Harry’s Law

David E. Kelley has at last found a good use for one of the costumes left over from his rejected Wonder Woman pilot: He’s put Smallville alum Erica Durance in it.

We’ve known since mid-November that the former Lois Lane would guest star on Kelley’s legal dramedy Harry’s Law as a psychologically damaged woman who retreats into the persona of the DC Comics superheroine, but now NBC has released the first images of the actress in her star-spangled outfit. And, as we suspected, it’s the same design as one worn by Adrianne Palicki in the doomed pilot — right down to the blue stretch pants, gold-star trim and uncomfortable-looking belt. Hey, it saves on production costs.

Durance, who donned a more generic “Amazon princess” costume last year in an episode of Smallville, confessed to TVLine that it was “very surreal” to step into the genuine article.

“It was a lot of fun,” she said. “I think any woman would be lying if she didn’t have a moment’s hesitation — you know, you’re jumping into some pretty tight clothes. But it’s so much more than that. It’s such an iconic character.”

But does Durance wish she’d had a chance to wear those trademark Wonder Woman short-shorts?

“I’m very grateful for the pants,” she told TV Guide with a laugh. “I know that people were very excited about the underwear and seeing them. To be quite frank, I don’t know if I could’ve done the underwear justice at this point in time and it might have been more upsetting for people to see me in them than to not, so I think the pants are a safe bet for me.”

Durance’s episode of Harry’s Law airs Wednesday, Jan. 11 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.

    (sigh)…yay.

  • Connie

    ..    erica is a piece of wood and is too old for WW

  • Shawn

    Yep, still hate it, even with her in it.

  • David

    I’d watch a Wonder Woman series with her as Diana.  Adrianne Palicki didn’t look the part.  

  • Mars

    Smallville had a better Wonder Woman costume.

    And Erica still looks nothing like her.

  • Theflinkman

    I’m as queer as the come, but she is one hot lady! I love that she’s continuing on the nerd path too.

  • Skyy Crews

    I still don’t think the costume was that bad. Would have liked to see the pilot.

  • Twin1todd

    All I can say is ….WOW!!!

  • mike payton

    yum

  • Max

    I don’t know the show at all, but the episode’s plot seems interesting, especially not just any character, but a Wounder woman, a DC character and I just love DCs characters.

  • Danny Hoskins

    She looks much better in it…and besides…there is no law that says you have to be in your early to mid 20s to play an amazonian goddess…even if she is playing dress-up for her shows character…

  • Customart081

    I’ve got not problem with that outfit. Seriously, it’s fine.  But yah, Adrianne Palicki wasn’t Wonder Woman.

  • Pyperspit

    im watching just for Erica Durance Smallville Lois Lane ;)

  • geoff kl

    and she looks a lot better now than she did as ll on smallville

     

  • YouAreAF***tard

    She is so hot! You guys must be limp.

  • Matthew Lane

    How can one be to old to be Wonder Woman? Wonder Woman was born in the late 40’s & still exists.

    She looks a bit more suited to the role than the actress originally chosen to play WW. That actress, whatever was her actual age, had too much of a teenage girl face, Erica Durance and some other actresses (who may or may not be older than her, I don’t know their birthdays) have more proper “women” faces, looking not old at all, but also not teenagers. That other actress would be more suited to some of those other wonder-woman-like characters, like that one who used to wear red pants (nowadays its blue or black I think) and there’s an even younger blonde one I guess, this one would be even more suited to that actress, who used to be blonde, even though that’s not really important, but the apparent age of her face.

    Super nice.

    that costume is not recognizable as a Wonder Woman costume.

  • ARies75

    Fuck you bitch. She’s more woman than you’ll ever be.

  • jhoni

    wow….this is for TV serial right?!?!? not for the big screen don’t they!?!?!

    hope the movie will coming soon!!

  • MelloYello68

     Definitely filling out the costume better than Adrianne Palicki did. Oh well.

  • juggalord

    What a difference casting can make. Adrianne Palicki looked more like a cosplayer in this costume, yet Erica Durance actually does look more like Wonder Woman. Shame it’s only Harry’s Law and is basically being done for shits and giggles.

    I can’t identify with WW unless she’s in high school and deals with everyday teenager problems.

  • Anonymous

    I hope I remember to watch this in 2 weeks! In my opinion, I’d say Erica Durance makes a very good Wonder Woman.

  • Mou101

    She looks lovely–and I’m a Harry’s Law fan, so I win!

  • Kolimar

    All things considered, not bad.

  • Damore

    That costume has the ability to make women with great bodies look so unsexy.

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE WW and trust me, the pilot was pure crap. It was not WW at all.

    Last time I checked Wonder Woman isn’t a teenager so Connie who said that Erica is too old to play Wonder Woman must be smoking something to make a comment like that.Wonder Woman is a grown amazon warrior and not some pubescent teenage girl in high school.I would agree with Connie if Erica was playing Wonder Girl who is a teenager but that isn’t the case here.Next thing you know she’ll say Henry Cavill is too young to play Superman.Before you throw out a comment check your facts on the characters first so as to not make a fool of yourself.
