Exclusive: Smallville's Erica Durance Brings Wonder Woman to Harry's Law

Anyone who has longed to see Erica Durance channel the Wonder Woman are going to see their dream come true — albeit perhaps via the unlikeliest of circumstances.

TVLine has learned exclusively that the Smallville alumna is set to guest-star on NBC’s Harry’s Law — which currently airs Wednesdays at 9/8c and was just picked up for a full second season — as a psychologically infirm woman who retreats into the persona of the DC Comics heroine to help wreak revenge on perpetrators of domestic abuse.

Durance will appear in the legal dramedy’s 11th episode, which given NBC’s midseason schedule change-up does not at this moment have a firm air date.

Ironically, this storytelling twist affords Harry’s Law creator David E. Kelley the chance anew to tap into the Wonder Woman mythos, after his pilot starring Adrianne Palicki as the Amazonian princess didn’t make the Peacock’s 2011-12 schedule.

In fact, that coupled with the fact that Harry’s Law, like Wonder Woman, is a Warner Bros. property, raises the possibility that viewers may even see Durance don the iconic outfit (versus the ersatz version she at one time slipped into as Smallville‘s generic “Amazon princess”).

Since Smallville signed off in May, Durance has kept very busy, landing the female lead in the medical drama Saving Hope (a Canadian TV pilot which just got ordered to series), playing twins for an indie film lensed in Italy, and guesting on ABC’s Charlie’s Angels.

To recap: Erica Durance. Wonder Woman. Harry’s Law. Maybe the costume.

    Woo Hoo…great…I miss Smallville so much and the chance to see any of the former cast from the show is such a thrill. ;) :D

    Its going to be awesome seeing Erica on Harry’s Law. Such a wonderful actress, she needs her own show.

    My husband and I absolutely loved Harry’s Law – at first. We think
    the changed format has ruined it and don’t even like to watch it. Kathy Bates is marvelous, and the whole shoe store/law office was really working and the cast was just so great. Why on earth did they have to change the entire show so drastically?? I hope it fails or that something forces them to go back to the old format; it is just another ordinary law and order show now. I never write comments but this just made me so angry; we don’t watch much network television, and this is a glaring reason why we don’t watch it.
