Actresses Catherine Zeta-Jones and Sandra Bullock have been blasted as too old to take the lead role in the upcoming movie Wonder Woman.
The damning indictment came from none other than Lynda Carter, who played the original super heroine in the Wonder Woman TV show in the 1970s.
Carter sounded off on her colleagues after the two Hollywood sirens were mentioned in connection with the role.
Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, will direct the movie. Carter appealed to him to cast the proto-feminist heroine with a younger, unknown actress.
"It should be an unknown actress who's about 20," Carter said.
According to gossip reports, actress Mischa Barton and Tom Cruise's fiancée Katie Holmes are among Whedon's prime candidates for the 2007 release.
