Adrianne Palicki has been cast in the title role for the pilot for NBC's Wonder Woman television series.

Palicki, 27, is perhaps best known as Tyra Collete in NBCÕs Friday Night Lights. Her feature film credits include Legion and the upcoming remake of Red Dawn.

Here's how DC Entertainment describes the show:

"The series pilot is a reinvention of the iconic DC Comics title in which Wonder Woman -- a/k/a Diana Prince -- is a vigilante crime fighter in Los Angeles but also a successful corporate executive and a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life."

David E. Kelley and Bill D'Elia are the executive producers. The pilot was written by Kelley and will be directed by Jeffrey Reiner. Wonder Woman is from David E Kelley Productions and Warner Bros. Television.

Wonder Woman will not be Palicki's first venture into the DC Universe. She played a siren in Warner Bros.' Aquaman pliot, which starred the eventual Green Arrow of Smallville, Justin Hartley. The pilot never aired on television, but did appear online.

Palicki also appeared in the "Covenant" episode of Smallville.

2K Games has announced that singer, songwriter and voice actor Mike Patton, will reprise his role as The Darkness in The Darkness II, the sequel to the 2007 video game release.

Patton is best known as the front man of Faith No More, Mr. Bungle and Peeping Tom.

"The story behind The Darkness II wouldnÕt be complete or authentic without the character of The Darkness," said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. "Mike Patton brings a completely unique perspective to the role which is essential in creating the world of The Darkness."

"It feels really good to be the bad guy, and The Darkness is as bad as it gets," Patton said "IÕve read through the script and Jackie is going to be a brutally tortured soul. IÕm looking forward to making his life a living hell."

2K Games will be showcasing The Darkness II, for the first time to press during the Game Developers Conference 2011 in San Francisco from March 2-4.
