From Inara To Diana

I've been paying attention to the slowly streaming news coming from V remake-land - Scott Wolf as the male lead? He still exists? - but this is the first time I've found myself excited. Via AICN:

"Gorgeous Morena Baccarin, who played space hooker Inara in “Firefly,” may now have a second reason to work the comic-book convention circuit down the road.

Baccarin, who vaguely resembles original “V” lead alien Jane Badler, has just been cast in ABC's pilot for a remake of the 1983 miniseries about Nazi-ish lizard extraterrestrials who invade Earth.

Baccarin will play the alien leader opposite Scott Wolf and Morris Chestnut.

It's always a happy day when I see news of a Whedonite getting a cool new gig, and Diana... well, little JA was probably made a lil' queerer by his devotion to that beacon of camp wonder in the original. Those are some big boots to fill, Morena! I hope you have worked on your gag reflex...

You gotta love physical FX from the 80's.
