She wouldn't say no

MorenaBaccarin.jpg

I am not certain how this slipped under my gorram radar: Morena Baccarin may star in Joss Whedon's Wonder Woman. IMDb even has the rumour listed. For her part, Baccarin has reportedly said she wouldn't say no to the part. I should certainly hope not.

"I feel bad for Joss because I’m sure he’s getting bombarded with questions about it. I mean, I’m not going to say no to a superhero but it’s not up to me."

This has all come to my attention for two reasons. First there is the release of fan documentary "Done the Impossible" (which should come with a massive multiple spoiler warning). I cannot recommend it to any but the most rabid Firefly fans but, given there is no other kind of Firefly fan, this does not present much of an obstacle. The second reason I have Firefly in mind is down to A Former Servant of Her Majesty belatedly making his way through the series.* This after a couple years of my claiming it is better than Ron Moore's Battlestar reboot. And by better I mean just as good but different.

Which brings me to a small point for Flea-readers who have not seen the show: Be sure to watch the tv series before you watch the feature film. If you watch the feature first I will never forgive you.

*He asks the important Inara or Kaylee question. The answer is, of course, Kaylee.

Great CGI for a fan film Update: Mosquito speculates about a galaxy dominated by Canadians and Ukrainians. Please. As if there is a difference between Canadians and Ukrainians.

This is just to point out I cannot believe nobody is as impressed with this potential Wonder Woman selection as I am. Philistines!

You are insane.

Bzzt. The correct answer is: both. And Zoe. If you're going to create a hypothetical, you might as well make it a really good hypothetical.

I'd have thought nick was more of a River Tam kind of man. Perhaps Saffron too?

In the Inara or Kaylee question... Inara, most certainly....Even as that is an impossibly tall height to scale.

Strangely enough, I was about to mention Saffron. And River is definitely sufficiently high-maintenance.

YES! She's been my first choice for the role of WW ever since I heard about the project!

Goaf... you always seem to deliver the news that I want to hear! I'm adding you to my blogroll.
