This month we profile Adrianne Palicki who plays Lady Jaye in G.I. Joe Retaliation. She first established herself from 2006-2009, staring as a series regular in the first three seasons of the acclaimed NBC drama series “Friday Night Lights,” opposite Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton.
“Friday Night Lights” is based on the book and film by the same name which follows a small-town, top-ranked high school football team and the lives surrounding it. In the 2011 fifth and final season, Palicki returned to her role as ‘Tyra Collette’ in the final two episodes and has received critical praise for her role on the show.
Palicki was born and raised in Ohio. She made the decision to move to Los Angeles when she decided to pursue an acting career. Her first project was director John Woo’s television remake of the classic program “Lost in Space,” where she played Judy Robinson.
Palicki starred in Sony Pictures’ epic film Legion, released in January 2010. Paul Bettany stars as the archangel ‘Michael,’ the only one standing between mankind and an apocalypse after God loses faith in humanity. Man’s lone hope rests with a group of strangers who must deliver a baby that they realize is Christ in his second coming. Palicki plays ‘Charlie,’ the woman carrying the child. The cast also includes Dennis Quaid, Kate Walsh and Lucas Black.
Palicki also starred in the 2009 independent comedy WOMEN IN TROUBLE opposite Carla Gugino, Josh Brolin, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Connie Britton and Marley Shelton. The film focuses on six women in Los Angeles as their lives become intertwined in the course of 24 hours.
Palicki was cast as Wonder Woman in David E. Kelly’s take on the character for a television series. While the series never took off, you should Google images of her in that Wonder Woman costume….she really looks good in tights!
