Adrianne Palicki, our once and never Wonder Woman, has just been added to the cast of G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes.
According to Deadline, the Friday Night Lights actress will be playing Lady Jaye in the film which also stars Channing Tatum and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Johnson was recently announced to be playing the role of Roadblock in the Jon M. Chu-directed film. "Ray Park is expected to reprise his Snake Eyes character, Byung Hun-lee is expected to bring back Storm Shadow, and RZA just joined the film," wrote Deadline.
Lady Jaye, a.k.a. Alison R. Hart-Burnett, is a covert op specialist for G.I. Joe who has a knack for impersonations. I think they were extremely smart to pick up Palicki for the role. Even though Wonder Woman didn't get picked up her name has been out there quite a lot and regardless of how the script was for the television pilot, everyone was looking forward to seeing her in action.
"The big question is who Paramount sets in the role of the original G.I. Joe, Joe Colton," writes Deadline, saying they've heard Bruce Willis is a top choice. Palicki can be seen next in the Red Dawn remake with Thor star Chris Hemsworth.
What do you think? Can you picture her as Lady Jaye? Will you even see another G.I. Joe movie?
