Adrianne Palicki imagines that almost four years after Friday Night Lights blew the final whistle, her character Tyra would be living the dream in 2015 as the second coming of Connie Britton.
"I think that she's literally become Tami Taylor," Palicki, 32, told PEOPLE on Thursday at the ATX Television Festival in Austin, Texas. "I think she's a counselor at some really awesome school, maybe a university somewhere, maybe married to Tim Riggins. And he's a coach of some football team, and they're literally like the reincarnation of [Tami and Eric]."

Making G.I. Joe: Retaliation with Channing Tatum, Bruce Willis and the Rock, Adrianne Palicki was not one to be intimidated – not after all the noises they made.
"I'm more macho than all those guys," the actress, perhaps best known for TV's Friday Night Lights (2006-11), boasts to PEOPLE. "You spend that much time with them – you hear them burp, fart – you immediately become one of the dudes."
Tatum, it seems, also did something even more for the gang.

Adrianne Palicki knew she had big boots – and a super-sexy, skin-tight suit – to fill when she signed on for NBC's upcoming re-launch of Wonder Woman, an iconic role originated by Lynda Carter in the '70s.
But there's no rivalry. In fact, Carter has nothing but wonderful things to say about the new TV incarnation.
"I think [Palicki] looks fabulous," Carter, 59, tells E! Online. "It's a new look and, jeez, her body looks fantastic."

Life is looking wonderful for Adrianne Palicki – literally.
The actress, 27, best known for her role as resident bad girl Tyra Collette on the now-defunct Friday Night Lights, landed the role of Wonder Woman – and her true identity, corporate powerhouse Diana Prince – in a pilot for NBC, Deadline Hollywood reports.
So who is this actress suiting up for the iconic comic book adaptation in what could be the most butt-kicking role of her career?

Playing Tyra Collette, a tough teen from the wrong side of the tracks on NBC's Friday Night Lights, is liberating for actress Adrianne Palicki. "Tyra is so opposite of me," she says. "She's just so honest – brutally honest." Besides getting to channel her inner bad girl, the Toledo, Ohio, native is loving life in Austin, Texas, where the show films. PEOPLE recently caught up with Palicki, 23, about her favorite Austin haunt and why she's grateful not to play a cheerleader.
