Cary Elwes, Tracie Thoms and Pedro Pascal Cast In Wonder Woman

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a little bit of Cary Elwes goes a long way, but his casting in the new TV Wonder Woman might be a case of too little, too late. According to Deadline he’ll be playing Harry Demeter, CEO of Themyscira Industries. This  is the big corporation that Diana runs on the side of dressing up in a funny costume and catching baddies with a magic lasso.*

Meanwhile, Tracie Thoms and Pedro Pascal have been cast as a couple more allies for Diana. Pascal is playing a friendly policeman, and Thoms is playing Etta Candy.

In the comic, Candy looked like this:

Or this:

Then in the draft of David E. Kelley’s script that I read, she was described like this:

And here’s a picture of Tracie Thoms:

Obviously, Diana isn’t the only character to be reinvented somewhat.

The Wonder Woman pilot will film in the coming weeks, and if you’re muscly enough, you could be part of it.

*She has that lasso, and those bracelets, and still people are sceptical about this TV show because it has Diana running a big corporation and having ice-cream sleepovers? That’s a pretty clear indicator of what we want from our Wonder Woman (ie. fighting and dressing up).
