Who should play Wonder Woman?

So it looks like the new Wonder Woman series is happening. It's not really clear how they're going to vamp her up for the new century but could be a lot of fun.
DC Women Kicking Ass says the script calls for a real woman who is powerful but vulnerable.Right, a real woman who runs around dressed like that and saves the world. Maybe it was simpler being a Superhero 30 years ago, that's definitely not something that came across in our childhood memories?

The rest of the released script says: "Female, late 20s to 30s. A kick-ass Superhero / Powerful C.E.O. / A vulnerable woman. Long flowing black hair, blue eyes. Amazon-like, muscular, an Olympian. The charismatic stage presence of a rock star. A crime fighter. Also, a real woman who yearns to live a normal life. She is accessible and appealing to all people, men and women alike…"
We talked about the ideas for the new WW costume here.

Who do you think should play Wonder Woman?

The first actress that comes to mind is Megan Fox but she might be too vampy for the roll. Maybe Jessica Biel or Jessica Alba.

Jessica Biel would be good! I saw a poll on the Athletic Women blog which put both the Jessicas up pretty high as well as American fighter Gina Carano

So it looks like NBC made a fast decision on this, and didnt really pay much attention to their own specs.
