Is Tanit Phoenix the Frontrunner for David E. Kelley’s Wonder Woman TV Series?

A “Wonder Woman” TV series from David E. Kelley. The guy who did “Ally McBeal” and the 5,000 other lawyer shows about eccentric but brilliant lawyers on TV. Yeah, that guy.

Anyways, according to What’s Playing, Tanit Phoenix, who recently appeared as a hot to trot vampire novelist in “The Lost Boys: The Thirst” sequel, is apparently up for the role of the Amazon princess in the upcoming TV series from Warner Bros. TV.

My contact passes on a rumor that the model cum actress has actually already spoken to key members of the production team and expressed interest… and they’re (that includes some suits at Warner Bros, whom she did The Thirst with) apparently big fans, so her name will undoubtedly be amongst the four or five young actresses that are ultimately shortlisted for the role of the Amazonian princess. “She will definitely get to screen test”, says an insider.

While she definitley has the looks and the body for the role, I’m not so sure about the acting chops. I mean, she was decent in “The Thirst”, but she didn’t exactly blow me away. Then again, it was a horror movie sequel (and a campy one at that), so who knows, she may be camping it up with the rest of the boys and was saving up the skills for another, more demanding movie, or TV show. Maybe.

In any case, here’s Tanit Phoenix. Amazon princess enough for ya?
