In addition to the already reported Wilmer Valderrama (criminal mastermind Carlos) D.J. Cotrona (Seth Gecko) Zane Holtz (Richie Gecko) and Jesse Garcia (Texas Ranger Freddie Gonzalez), EW now reveal that Adrianne Palicki, Jake Busey and Lane Garrison have also joined. According to the site, "Palicki plays Vanessa Styles, a woman from Seth Gecko’s past. Busey plays eccentric, mythology-obsessed professor Aiden Tanner. And Garrison is Pete, a liquor store clerk who gets more than he bargained for when the Gecko brothers enter his shop." If you haven't seen the original movie, it's a sporadically successful mix of crime thriller and horror flick, featuring a pretty unforgettable dance-cum-bloodbath scene with Salma Hayek. It spawned various comic books and a couple of straight to DVD sequels.

Yeah, she sucked as Wonder Woman. Hope she's better in this.

Story was even worse.

I'm interested to see how this goes. I love the original film to this day. But DJ Cptrpna taking over the part of Seth Gecko is a little weird.

When was she Wonder Woman? Did I miss a whole thing?

Between her and Gal Gadot, I really think Wonder Woman is just doomed when it comes to the film and TV.

Clearly acting talent, a sense of presence, and actual charisma mean nothing to the casting directors, since they're just hiring pretty models to play one of the most iconic female comic characters ever created.

We can't even look at Gal's past acting for any confidence in her because it's limited and crappy.

I'm just waiting for the latest (Justice League) Batman-vs-Superman casting news:

"This Just In: ZAC EFFRON CAST AS MARTIAN MANHUNTER!"

Welcome to the Justice League of the 'selfie' generation.

You may not have liked her as WW, but she is certainly a better actress than Gadot, certainly looks more like WW, and is certainly WAY HOTTER.

@gulducati

She played WW in a failed pilot episode for NBC

Cue many gratuitous shots of Adrianne Palicki as WW and in bikinis juxtaposed against Gadot in bikinis and photoshopped as WW…..
