Minnie Driver Wants 'Wonder Woman' Role


Minnie DriverMinnie Driver says she's very interested in playing the lead role in Wonder Woman, although she has her doubts. "I think you're probably going to see Catherine Zeta-Jones squished into a corset and a pair of shorts quicker than you'd see me," Driver told Sci-Fi Wire. "I might have more currency now, after Phantom, because she is an operatic superhero, in my opinion."

"That's actually going to be my new angle, my new pitch," Driver jokingly said. "I knew there was a reason I came here today, and it was to hone my pitch to Warner Brothers."

Driver added that she considers the original Wonder Woman Lynda Carter as one of her all-time heroines. "She did it all with a couple of bracelets and a weird lasso, and she had an invisible plane!" Driver said. "Come on, she's heaven, and she was so sexy. Even though I didn't have blue eyes, at a stretch I thought I could possibly grow up to be her, whereas I could never have grown up to be Lindsay Wagner [who played the Bionic Woman]. Do you know what I mean?"

Driver jovially added that she may convince Debra Winger to reprise her role as Drusilla, better known as Wonder Girl.
