First Look at Erica Durance as Wonder Woman on <i>Harry’s Law</i>

David E. Kelley has at last found a good use for one of the costumes left over from his rejected Wonder Woman pilot: He’s put Smallville alum Erica Durance in it.

We’ve known since mid-November that the former Lois Lane would guest star on Kelley’s legal dramedy Harry’s Law as a psychologically damaged woman who retreats into the persona of the DC Comics superheroine, but now NBC has released the first images of the actress in her star-spangled outfit. And, as we suspected, it’s the same design as one worn by Adrianne Palicki in the doomed pilot — right down to the blue stretch pants, gold-star trim and uncomfortable-looking belt. Hey, it saves on production costs.

Durance, who donned a more generic “Amazon princess” costume last year in an episode of Smallville, confessed to TVLine that it was “very surreal” to step into the genuine article.

“It was a lot of fun,” she said. “I think any woman would be lying if she didn’t have a moment’s hesitation — you know, you’re jumping into some pretty tight clothes. But it’s so much more than that. It’s such an iconic character.”

But does Durance wish she’d had a chance to wear those trademark Wonder Woman short-shorts?

“I’m very grateful for the pants,” she told TV Guide with a laugh. “I know that people were very excited about the underwear and seeing them. To be quite frank, I don’t know if I could’ve done the underwear justice at this point in time and it might have been more upsetting for people to see me in them than to not, so I think the pants are a safe bet for me.”

Durance’s episode of Harry’s Law airs Wednesday, Jan. 11 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
