Former Wonder Woman Adrianne Palicki Joins FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES

Former Wonder Woman Adrianne Palicki Joins FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES

The one time Princess Diana is just one of three new casting additions for Robert Rodriguez's 10-episode El Rey Network tv show, which is based on his 1996 movie of the same name. Read on to find out who will be joining the gorgeous G.I. JOE: Retaliation star.

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.

She was a shit Wonder Woman. Gal Gadot will show her how its done.
SuperCat - 12/16/2013, 11:39 AM
Yeah, she sucked as Wonder Woman. Hope she's better in this.
Brainiac13 - 12/16/2013, 11:46 AM
Yeah..she was shit!
Brainiac13 - 12/16/2013, 11:46 AM
Story was even worse.
Dedpool - 12/16/2013, 12:10 PM
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.
gulducati - 12/16/2013, 12:12 PM
When was she Wonder Woman? Did I miss a whole thing?
Humperdink - 12/16/2013, 12:14 PM
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:


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.
chewish - 12/16/2013, 12:16 PM

She played WW in a failed pilot episode for NBC
vtopa - 12/16/2013, 12:16 PM
Cue many gratuitous shots of Adrianne Palicki as WW and in bikinis juxtaposed against Gadot in bikinis and photoshopped as WW…..
Humperdink - 12/16/2013, 12:18 PM

^ Batman.
HeisenbergSaysRelax - 12/16/2013, 12:24 PM
I loved the first 'Dusk Till Dawn'. Easily one of my favorite Vampire movies ever. But seriously? Do we need a TV series based on it? I don't see this lasting long.

n1ghtw1ng2832 - 12/16/2013, 12:24 PM
I'll normally watch anything with her in it cause I think she's gorgeous as hell but seriously? [frick]ing FEZ! They really need to stop casting this jackass in shit, he cant [frick]ing act worth for shit. Plus hes a jackass in real life as well. This show is doomed before it even airs!!!!!!!!!
Enphlieuwince - 12/16/2013, 1:02 PM
She is so fine.
CherryBomb - 12/16/2013, 1:04 PM
Adrianne was awesome as Wonder Woman.
She did great with the terrible script and costume she had.

She's very athletic and 5'11, she was the tallest person on screen in that pilot and definitely showed dominance on screen.

She was my pick for the movie. Alas, I'm happy with Gal Gadot.

And I look forward to seeing her in this project!
CherryBomb - 12/16/2013, 1:08 PM

CherryBomb - 12/16/2013, 1:10 PM

She was bad-ass in G.I. Joe.
Love her.

BillyM67 - 12/16/2013, 1:16 PM
Now that's a WW!
soforizo - 12/16/2013, 1:19 PM
I wouldn't call someone cast in a failed TV pilot as WW.
pintoman - 12/16/2013, 1:26 PM
I believe the sentence you are looking for is

"Fake-boobed no curves Adrianne Palicki Joins FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES"
RichardHedski - 12/16/2013, 1:30 PM
She was actually a decent choice but the pilot was total ass! Now, I'm going to bitch about Gal Gadot and how much she's going to suck as WW even though we have yet to see her perform because that's what the cool kids are doing these days. I love the internet!
nowtheresaBATman - 12/16/2013, 1:36 PM
she needs too regurgitate a sandwich.
nowtheresaBATman - 12/16/2013, 1:38 PM
no way in hell was she a decent choice. she looks like she's trick or treating in a Halloween costume.
RichardHedski - 12/16/2013, 1:48 PM
Yeah, the costume looks a little cheap like she bought it at a Halloween shop. If she would have had a better costume she would be badass.
fettastic - 12/16/2013, 1:51 PM
There is no way to make star-spangled panties and a golden eagle bra look cool.

Smallville has probably come the closest:

JoJo1982 - 12/16/2013, 2:07 PM

Not bad at all!!!
Enphlieuwince - 12/16/2013, 2:12 PM

"Smallville has probably come the closest" being the worst? Yeah.

"There is no way to make star-spangled panties and a golden eagle bra look cool."

The lies you tell.
Enphlieuwince - 12/16/2013, 2:13 PM
@fet, that shit looks like a loser in a Xena cosplay contest.
Enphlieuwince - 12/16/2013, 2:14 PM
@fet, it looks like they made the top half outta Michael Jackson's Thriller jacket.
Enphlieuwince - 12/16/2013, 2:19 PM
@fet, she looks like an extra from the original Ben Hur movie.
UncleBurnsie - 12/16/2013, 2:26 PM
there's a difference. the actress on Smallville was HOT
UncleBurnsie - 12/16/2013, 2:29 PM
@gusto's 12:31 post- 3rd pic- ZERO ASS
RichardHedski - 12/16/2013, 2:36 PM
Erica Durance makes me think weird thoughts. ;)
TheGreenGusblin - 12/16/2013, 2:42 PM
Me need her.
TheSoulEater - 12/16/2013, 5:07 PM
I'll probably enjoy this
19001560 - 12/16/2013, 7:43 PM
Wonder Woman was shit, not because of Adrianne but because Wonder Bitch always sucks!
mgeoff88 - 12/16/2013, 10:45 PM
I love Adrianne Palicki. I really liked the first FDTD. That is a classic vampire movie IMO.

I'll definitely be checking this out.

And I'll do the honors of continuing the Palicki bomb:

@CherryBomb You know she's right for the role when she could look that good in such a terrible WW costume.

I still haven't watched the pilot yet. I do want to give it a watch just for the heck of it.

@19001560 Lol! You're a funny guy...

I like how people come on to an article to only say that they hate a great character without even bothering to explain why.
SoundWave - 12/16/2013, 11:22 PM
Palicki was AWESOME Wonder Woman, and also was villain Sirene in "Aquaman" pilot with Hartley from "Smallville" as Aquaman, and even in "Smallville" she was a pre-Kara before the real one in later seasons. She is regulary in comic books live action, hope to see her in awesome "Arrow" series too.
TheePeterParker - 12/16/2013, 11:37 PM
All honestly

She sucks at acting and so does Gal Gadot, if you can telle
One movie tha she has done a great job in..
Please do tell me
CherryBomb - 12/17/2013, 8:20 AM

The writing for the character is horrible. It was.
I meant looks wise and build and stature she's good. If she had an accent she'd be great.
