Former Wonder Woman Adrianne Palicki is G.I. Joe 2’s Lady Jaye

She may have only worn the tiara for one pilot episode, but Adrianne Palicki is probably glad her David E. Kelley show “Wonder Woman” never made it on the air, because it means she won’t have commit to it and can move on to bigger and better things, like playing the female lead in “G.I. Joe 2: Cobra Strikes”, the upcoming Paramount sequel set to be directed by Jon Chu.

Deadline reports that Palicki will play Lady Jaye, who according to Wikipedia, is the team’s covert operations specialist whose real name is Alison R. Hart-Burnett. Besides being Airborne and Ranger qualified, Lady Jaye is also an accomplished actress, master impersonator, and is fluent in many languages.

Palicki joins new castmembers Dwayne Johnson, who will play another important new character named Roadblock, Elodie Yung as a ninja named Jinx, and D.J. Cotrona as Flint. Rapper RZA will play The Blind Master, Snake Eyes and Jinx’s master. Only Byung Hun-lee, Ray Park, and Channing Tatum are expected back from the first movie.
