The actor will portray the CEO of Themyscira Industries, the company at which Diana Prince (Adrianne Palicki) works. It is said that Cary Elwes could potentially serve as Prince's love interest as well.
We reported yesterday that Pedro Pascal and Tracie Thoms have joined the cast. Pedro Pascal is playing a cop who becomes friends with Wonder Woman, and Tracie Thoms will play Prince's assistant at Themyscira. Elizabeth Hurley is also set for a recurring role as villain Veronica Cale, if she can work out visa issues.
David E. Kelley wrote the pilot with Jeffrey Reiner set to direct. It isn't clear when production will start on the pilot, although with the cast starting to come together quickly, it seems shooting will start soon.
