Congratulations to Patty & Gal on their collaboration!

Here is the full video from Gal & Kumail’s Actors on Actors episode … and an excerpt from the new issue of Variety.

Gal Gadot (“Wonder Woman”) and Kumail Nanjiani (“The Big Sick”) sat down for a chat for Variety’s “Actors on Actors” presented by Google Home, which airs from Jan. 2 to Jan. 4 on PBS SoCal KOCE.

Kumail Nanjiani: So how did you end up playing “Wonder Woman”? How did that happen?

Gal Gadot: It’s kind of one thing led to the other. I never planned on becoming an actress, and then I had this opportunity where this casting director flew to Israel; she was looking for a new Bond girl. I did the audition, didn’t get the part, but through this experience I was like, “This is so much more interesting than going to law school.”

Nanjiani: You were in law school?

Gadot: Yeah, I know. Thank goodness life interrupts and comes in the way. It was weird because I didn’t know they were auditioning me for “Wonder Woman.” I knew I was auditioning for this secret project.

Nanjiani: And they were like, “And she has a magic lasso”?

Gadot: No, nothing. I read scenes from “Pulp Fiction” for the auditions. And then they told me they wanted me to fly into L.A. to do the camera test. I was like, “Great. I will. But what is it?” And then Zack Snyder, our director, called me and said it was for “Wonder Woman.” But wait, I read that you didn’t want to be an actor either. What are you doing here?

Nanjiani: I don’t know what happened. Huge mistake. My parents wanted me to be a doctor.

Gadot: They wanted me to be a lawyer. We have so much in common.

Nanjiani: We’re both immigrants. We play immigrants in our movies.

Gadot: We both get asked all the time, “How do I pronounce your name?”

Nanjiani: So I decided pretty early on I didn’t want to be a doctor because the stakes are so high. Like if we mess up, we get another take. With a doctor, the worst-case scenario is much worse, right? And I sort of fell in love with comedy. From the stand-up, it went into writing and then into acting. The first thing I acted in that I wrote for was a show called “Michael and Michael Have Issues.” I was like, “Oh, my God, this is going to be my life. This is going to be great” — it lasted six episodes. Really, I’ve been in the right place at the right time over and over.

Gadot: I can relate to being at the right place at the right time. I think that this movie, these type of movies, are overdue. They needed to make more a long time ago. The opportunity came and I was just ready, and I was there when it happened, and I got lucky.

Nanjiani: I feel very privileged to get to play, as a brown man, a kind of part that we haven’t really seen in American pop culture too much. I think the answer is that we have to show that there’s no one real image of brown people. We wanted to just tell our story, but it’s been interesting that you see a brown guy in a rom-com. I think seeing brown people in different contexts in America is just going to show people … they’re just people. My wife wanted to have a website called Muslims Having Fun, and it’s just pictures of Muslim people eating popsicles or riding roller coasters. You don’t see that so much. Like, you got to play this powerful, awesome female superhero. You must have such an interesting and exciting fan base.

Gadot: I get really emotional and excited when it’s little kids. To them, I’m not Gal. To them, I’m Diana. I’m Wonder Woman. It’s funny how this movie was so broad, touched different people, different ages, different cultures. I got photos from people that I work with or friends that their grandparents went to see it with their wheelchair and everything. It’s been really overwhelming. Right now, in the eye of the storm, I enjoy it and I appreciate the amazing feedback. But I think that it’s going to take me time to really digest and realize what’s happening.

Nanjiani: The picture of you with the little girl dressed as Wonder Woman — how she got to see that scene of all these powerful women on horses and this epic superhero battle, but they’re all powerful women. And to her that’s going to be normal, which is really stunning.

Gadot: Which I love. Having two girls, I can only hope that this is not just a trend. Now, because we did well at the box office, I hope that there’s going to be more female-led stories that everyone can enjoy because at the end of the day, I enjoyed so many male-led stories. We’re talking about representation, so on Earth there’s 50-50 men and women, and it should be the same on film, on TV, on everywhere.

An outtake was released from a recent photoshoot the cast of the Justice League did for USA Today.

GQ has a well done feature on Gal as their Woman of the Year. Here is an excerpt from their feature and some images from the photoshoot.

Wonder Woman has been with us for decades, but 2017 was the year she finally got the blockbuster she deserved—and now Gal Gadot, the actual ex–Israeli soldier who played her, is Wonder Woman forever. Caity Weaver hits the beaches of Tel Aviv with Gadot and her many (many) fans.

The day I meet Wonder Woman by the seaside is a perfect beach day, bounded on each side by unbroken chains of perfect beach days. The sun is splendidious. The sky is a show-off blue. The people of Israel are wearing white sneakers and performing vigorous calisthenics in the free fitness parks that stipple the Tel Aviv shoreline in primary colors. The water is as warm and as salty as a basin of tears. The egg sandwich is unexpected.

Wonder Woman has brought me the egg sandwich wrapped in cellophane, and when she arrives, she delivers it to me as confidently as if I had specifically requested it. She also packed me a fluffy white bath towel from her own home. Wonder Woman is used to taking care of everything because she is the protector of mankind.

Here in the real world, Wonder Woman is Gal Gadot, and off-camera Gal Gadot’s personal style is like that of a desert-island inhabitant who receives regular airdrops of au courant garments from the world’s top luxury fashion houses. She arrives at the beach with her hair in a bun, wearing old rubber flip-flops, denim cut-offs so distressed as to be inconsolable, and a couture black swimsuit boasting cap sleeves; leather; a deep, plunging bustier neckline; and a field’s worth of laser-cut and embroidered flowers and leaves. It’s a bathing costume designed to be worn more in theory than in practice, yet it also seems to function as Gadot’s casual swimwear for bumming around. I recognize it from a recent Instagram post of Gadot in a pool with friends. When I mention this, she contorts her face in mock misery: “I cannot believe I wore the same swimsuit twice!” I express my concern she’ll be spotted by fans, because she has essentially arrived at the beach wearing a Gal Gadot costume. She laughs and flops down under the shade of a public cabana.

The most beautiful thing about Gal Gadot is her smile—a real one, devastating, whipped out frequently to the peril of those around her—but the other stuff is very good, too. She has features that make the notion of cosmetics seem garish, like using Hi-Liter to trace over a butterfly’s wings. Her height—she’s just over 5’10″—and her leanness behave like complementary colors, her stature emphasizing her slenderness and vice versa. Gadot’s thinness doesn’t make her seem small, though. She has the bone structure of a delicately carved statue, but her physical presence is more akin to the rod that runs up the statue’s back to absorb lightning strikes.

She is spotted. She is spotted over and over again, probably a dozen times before we leave. She obliges virtually everyone, perhaps calculating that it will take longer to disappoint a fan than to smile and pose. Her trick is to offer an immediate “Thanks!” the instant a photo has been taken—her polite signal the interaction has concluded.

It’s already as hot as a charcoal grill in an attic on the sun, but at 10 A.M., there are few enough people at this beach on the far outskirts of Tel Aviv that everyone can fit within the cool, gray squares of shade provided by a smattering of tented canopies. The catch is that you have to share your square with strangers, which is why Gadot and I are joined first by an old man and, a little later, by a woman in her late 50s, who sits behind Gadot and faces the sea. How do the logistics of personal safety change when you abruptly become a global public figure?

“I’m much more aware and alert,” Gadot says, stretching out on the sand. “I don’t want to seclude myself from society. I want to be part of everyone, and I enjoy talking to random people sometimes. It’s easier for me here [in Israel], ’cause profiling people is really easy for me.” She gestures toward a group of about 20 young people in a neighboring cabana, many of whom have already asked her for photos.

“Like, I can tell you that this group—they’re good people. They’re calm, nice. They’re gonna clean after themselves when they leave. They don’t look for trouble.” She jerks her head back. “This woman,” she says in the same breezy tone, “is probably from Russia.”

Gal was sat down for an interview with Willie Geist for Today’s Sunday Sitdown.

Gal Gadot may be one of Hollywood’s newest stars, but she’s already one of its biggest thanks to the record-breaking superhero movie “Wonder Woman.” In this week’s Sunday Sitdown, Gadot, who stars in the new “Justice League” film, talks to Willie Geist about how her career has taken many “random” turns to get to the limelight.
