Unbeknownst to both Sandra Bullock and Catherine Zeta Jones, the two highly paid actresses are too old to play the much-coveted role of Wonder Woman.

Ms. Carter has reportedly urged the film’s co-writer and director, Buffy creator Joss Whedon, to stray from the mainstream when casting the film. We’re wondering just how obscure the new star should be, Lynda. Is someone feeling the need to once again sport a snazzy pair of star-spangled hot pants?

“They wouldn’t let me go in. But he said to take the bridge instead,” she explains. “And I didn’t understand that logic. If you’re a suspect, don’t take the tunnel take the bridge?”
What’s more upsetting than this miscarriage of justice is the NYPD’s lack of familiarity with the Portman oeuvre.

Like my good friend Britney Spears says, ‘My hair’s my thing, y’all.'”
