Wonder Woman: Chris Pine Hints at Lynda Carter Cameo
Ever since Wonder Woman started production in November, the movie has been shrouded in secrecy, but we have seen a handful of photos and videos from the set. While the main cast members have been confirmed, some have wondered if the original Wonder Woman TV series star Lynda Carter would be involved in the production in some way. While promoting his new movie The Finest Hours, in theaters January 29, Chris Pine was asked if the actress would have a cameo role in the movie, but he wouldn't say one way or another.
"If I could tell you that, I wouldn't, but I can't."
Of course, it's possible he's being so secretive because the actress does in fact have a cameo in the movie, but she hasn't been spotted on the set yet and her appearance has not been confirmed. The production recently cast Connie Nielsen as Wonder Woman's mother, Hippolyta, so that's one role we know is filled that can't be portrayed by Lynda Carter. When asked about his experiences on the film so far, Chris Pine had this to say.
"It's a great. It's a great story. I love that we're shooting it on film, which is a beautiful, beautiful thing. Gal Gadot, who is playing Wonder Woman, is beautiful and supremely talented and strong. The story is really one that I think needs to be out there. The simple fact of the matter is that it's about a woman who is so strong with such physical capability, who can kick so much ass, but, really, at the end of the day, leads with so much compassion and love and hope for humanity. I think we need a lot of that right now."
Chris Pine is playing the title character's love interest, Steve Trevor, along with Ewen Bremner, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Lucy Davis and Saïd Taghmaoui. No details have been given for the rest of the supporting cast quite yet. There have also been rumors that Sean Bean and Eva Green were playing the main villains Ares and Circe, but their involvement hasn't been confirmed either.
Patty Jenkins (Monster) is directing Wonder Woman from a screenplay by Jason Fuchs (Pan), with Charles Roven, Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder producing. Principal photography is taking place on location in the UK, France and Italy. No plot details have been revealed yet. What do you think about the possibility of a Lynda Carter cameo?
