The Next Wonder Woman
Any time a movie or TV comic book adaptation is announced, the internet becomes instantly abuzz with casting ideas, and when it comes to a character as iconic as Princess Diana of Themiscyra, those opinions are STRONG!

Kelley’s new "Wonder Woman" show (presumably designed to fill the gap Clark Kent will leave when he finally becomes Superman at the end of this final season of "Smallville") is the latest attempt to bring live action resurrection to comics’ pre-eminent superheroine. So who can fill the red and white boots so memorably worn by Lynda Carter in the 1970s? Here are a fe...

Bionic Woman star Michelle Ryan has blamed her role in the TV show for her dismal love life - insisting her newly toned body puts off any potential boyfriends.

The British actress was forced to undergo a grueling training regime for her role in the remake of the cult 1970s program, and the punishing work-outs left her with a taught new figure.

But Ryan, 23, is convinced that men find highly athletic women less attractive, claiming her muscled new body is the reason why she is still single.

She says, "I knew playing a woman with bionic strength was going to screw me over wi...

British actress Michelle Ryan struggled to shape up for her role as the Bionic Woman - because she didn't want to give up junk food. The 23-year-old, who relocated to Hollywood to take on the physically demanding role, has been banned from eating pizza, chips and chocolate.
