Smallville's Erica Durance is finally going to play Wonder Woman, well kinda. TVLine is reporting that she is set to guest star in an episode of NBC’s Harry’s Law. She will play “a psychologically infirm woman who retreats into the persona of the DC Comics heroine to help wreak revenge on perpetrators of domestic abuse.”
Kathy Bates stars in the legal dramedy created by David E. Kelley as criminal-defense attorney Harriet “Harry” Korn. This news is cool because it gives Kelley the chance to bring Wonder Woman to the screen (if only for one episode) after NBC passed on his Wonder Woman pilot in May. The show is produced by Warner Bros. Television, so we may see Durance wearing a legit Wonder Woman costume. Durance starred in Smallville as Lois Lane for seven seasons and was cast in Saving Hope. Be sure to tune into the 11th episode of Harry's Law to check her out.
