Cobie Smulders, the brunette Canadian actress who stars in CBS’ How I Met Your Mother, told SCI FI Wire that she’d be open to auditioning for the title role in Joss Whedon’s proposed Wonder Woman movie. She first broached the idea in the February issue of Esquire magazine, which is on sale now.
"It’s funny," Smulders said in an interview at CBS’ winter press tour in Pasadena, Calif., last week. "When you do like an interview for two hours, and then they take the Wonder Woman quote. ... My boyfriend ... [is] really into comic books, and ... he was the one who kind of said, ’Hey, it would be cool if you could do that.’ And I don’t know. Who knows? I’ll go in for it if it comes up, but it’s definitely not, like, in the works or anything."
Smulders said that the idea has come up before. "I think it’s just the curse of having brown hair in this industry and being an actress," she said. "I think it’s just a general, like, question that everyone’s going to pose their clients."
Whedon, creator of TV’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer and director of the feature film Serenity, has been hired to write and possibly direct a Wonder Woman movie, based on the DC Comics franchise.
