Charisma Carpenter makes a bid for the big screen Wonder Woman lasso

The actress will also charge for her autograph at the Wizard World convention for a special cause

LOCATION: The hills of Charisma

THE SKINNY: Charisma Carpenter, best know to audiences as Cordelia Chase on BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and ANGEL has a supporting role this season on VERONICA MARS. What Charisma really wants to do though is be a superhero, preferably WONDER WOMAN. In an interview with TV Guide she dropped the hint that she wants Joss Whedon who is writing the film, or Joel Silver who is producing, to cast her in the title role.

Carpenter: I know! From your lips to God’s ears... or Joss’... or Joel’s....

She then went on to state that she will be charging for her autograph for the first time at this weekend’s WIZARD WORLD LOS ANGELES comic book convention, but it’s for a worthy cause.

Carpenter: I just think it’s wrong to charge - it feels sleazy and desperate. The only reason I would charge now is because there are [disadvantaged] kids who need assistance. I’m doing a convention [Wizard World Los Angeles] on March 18, and in this case I am charging, but everything is going to charity. So my fans will be helping out a very special kid, a 9-year-old quadriplegic who needs a specially equipped van. If I can exploit myself in a way that helps others, I’ll do that.
