40 Hotties Over 40: #30 Lynda Carter (Age: 56)

Do you know why they haven’t made the movie version of Wonder Woman yet? No, it’s not because Joss Whedon pulled out over creative differences early last year. It’s not due to the script or the budget. It’s not about anything that you think it’s about. It’s due to one thing and one thing only. They have to find someone that can compare to this –

Lynda Carter

Mm hm. And I’m sure that you’ve heard the casting rumors. If you haven’t, you’ve been living under a rock, or you don’t care about the Wonder Woman movie, and, in that case, the human race has no need for you. Go live under a rock.



But seriously, how many young starlets today can compete with Lynda Carter now, let alone during her prime Wonder Woman days? (Personally, I am still holding out hope for Charisma Carpenter as WW. She has the, uh, assets for it. And I loved her on Angel. So there. It’s not all about the physical attributes. Though they do help.)

Anyway, Lynda Carter is a prime hottie, and they are terrified to try to fill her bustier.

Who can blame them?

  1. I’ve just been chastised for not stating clearly that she could tie me up with her lasso of truth any day. I really thought it was implied.

  2. Um, how could you not love this woman? Gorgeous, and those eyes! Darn, now I have her theme song in my head…

  3. Riley, you ROCK!
    You have great taste. Who in their right mind (Man, Woman or Eunuch) wouldn’t want to be caught in Wonder Woman’s lasso.

  4. Okay, it’s like this… I did intend to do a daily post of these, thereby making it take just over a month, right? But, you know what, life happens and stuff, and I forgive myself.

  5. I don’t think they should do a Wonder Woman movie. Not only have I become sick and tired of comic book movies and movie versions of 70-80’s TV shows, (Wonder Woman would be both) I just don’t think it would be possible to pull it off. It could only be another cheesy, rip-off, cash grab.

    You know who’ll they’ll choose to be Wonder Woman? Jessica Simpson? Britney Spears? Oh, maybe Rhinoa, or whatever the hell her name is. They’ll probably just hire some skinny flavour of the month in order to fill seats with hype-swallowing losers who won’t even care that she can’t act and bears no resemblance to the original. She probably won’t even have dark hair a-la Simpson in the Dukes of Hazzard. (long rant for another day)

    And ten years from now, whoever they hire will probably look older than the real Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter, looks. She is still smoking hot and barely looks more than 10 years older than she did 30 years ago. Too bad I’ve only seen her in a couple of things since Wonder Woman. Where the hell has she been? I guess she was a victim of Hollywood’s age bias when it comes to women.

    Here’s an idea. Hire Lynda Carter for the part. She needs a gig and we know she can do the job. Besides, an aging superhero would make for a much more interesting story than whatever these hacks have in mind.
