More From Katee Sackhoff On Wanting To Play HARLEY QUINN Or WONDER WOMAN

The Riddick actress talks about being told that she wasn't right for the role of Wonder Woman in the failed TV series, and again expresses her desire to play Harley Quinn on the big screen. Sackhoff also emphasises her interest in taking on a role in Star Wars Episode VII!

"Absolutely," Katee Sackhoff told Total Film when they asked her if she's still interested in starring in a comic book movie. "I would love to play any of these characters. I'd love to play Wonder Woman. I remember auditioning for the Wonder Woman television show and being told that I wasn't the Wonder Woman type, but if I wanted to play the best friend, I could audition for that. And remember thinking to myself, 'You obviously haven't seen my work!' [laughs]"

As we know from past interviews, The Joker's sidekick Harley Quinn is a character that certainly seems to be of interest to the Riddick actress, and with a new Batman franchise on the horizon, could she finally get her wish? "I would love to do that. I'm obsessed with Jinx. I would love to play Harley Quinn. I just think it's amazing. I mean I think I might give away my firstborn to have an opportunity to play Harley Quinn. I love trying to understand the villain, and trying to understand the things they do and why they do them, and I've always found her and The Joker, you almost can't understand them. And it makes it so much more interesting because everything's fair game, and I love that. I loved the usefulness of her, I thought that was interesting, and I just think that it's a fantastic character."

"Star Wars meant everything to me growing up," Sackhoff added when talk turned to her voiceover work in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars series. As for whether that means she would like to take on a live-action role in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars Episode VII, she added: "Star Wars was, I mean, it was the first time I remember seeing three movies that all kind of went together. It was just an amazing final understanding of what a trilogy was. If J.J. would listen, I would play a rock in the Star Wars movies. I think that they're fantastic, I think that he's a great choice, and I'm excited to see what happens in that world."

I wonder if DC/WB will snipe her as well like they did with The Rock!

Imagine if people could actually play background objects in movies.

Give away her firstborn?

Sheesh. Too many bad mothers these days.
Ineedrevelation - 1/5/2014, 8:29 AM
You need a pic to show what she looks like and her figure. Too many people, like myself, have no idea what she looks like.

Compare and contrast. That's a part of journalism.

Terrible fit for WW.
dnno1 - 1/5/2014, 8:36 AM
@NovaCorpsFan, I think they call them standins. I am sure that Kate Sack off would surprise everyone as Harley. I would think that fans would like to see someone like Tricia Helfer even more.

Stick with dc baby
Enphlieuwince - 1/5/2014, 8:41 AM
No, she is no Wonder Woman.
TheSisko - 1/5/2014, 8:48 AM
Katee should go with Marvel, she would be amazing as Danvers. DC were idiots when they passed up on her as Wonder Woman. Gillian Jacobs is the only actress I could see as Harley Quinn.

marcvader1 - 1/5/2014, 8:54 AM
She' too friggin desperate for these roles.
darkknight1985 - 1/5/2014, 8:56 AM

I think she will look perfect as Ms. Marvel.

MrChuff - 1/5/2014, 8:59 AM
Wow.... How blatant can whoring yourself out get? There are thousands of people who'd live to be in either a new Batman or Star Wars flick. Get in line, Blondie.....
Sumitsjc - 1/5/2014, 9:00 AM
I think her Height make that cut.
Although she look more like Ms.Marvel.
CrimsonFlash - 1/5/2014, 9:00 AM
Bad wonder woman perfect Ms. Marvel
Enphlieuwince - 1/5/2014, 9:02 AM
Yvonne Strahovski is the only Captain Marvel for me.

Jobin - 1/5/2014, 9:06 AM
I hate these fake actresses and actors who claim to like comic books and say they are fans and nerds just so they can get a role.

That's how Samuel L Jackson got a role in star Wars, he said, he'd be happy to even be a faceless Stormtrooper who just walked in front of the Katee Sackhoff would make a beautiful rock.
JoeMomma29 - 1/5/2014, 9:07 AM
@ MrChuff

She could be whoring herself out, or maybe she really wants to play those characters. Anyways she could be a good Harley or Ms. Marvel, but her body of world is not the greatest
soforizo - 1/5/2014, 9:10 AM
I like Katee and all, but I don't see it. Not saying its impossible, it's certainly easier than Gadot pulling off WW, but I can't picture her saying "hello, pudding!". Harley would need a makeover like Ledger did with the Joker.
Juicerules - 1/5/2014, 9:10 AM
She's too old to play Harley, and I agree that she doesn't have the right look to be Wonder Woman. She would've made a decent Sif though.
Chewtoy - 1/5/2014, 9:10 AM
I have zero faith in Warner Bros. ever doing justice to what I love about Harley Quinn on the big screen.
thescarletspeedzter - 1/5/2014, 9:19 AM
''I mean I think I might give away my firstborn to have an opportunity to play Harley Quinn.''

Damn. Give her the role for god sake

Sakoff will always be a supporting actress and never a leading lady. There's a reason she's never been in anything of consequence. BSG is the best thing she's done at this point and that was several years ago.
Nerfherder1 - 1/5/2014, 9:31 AM
Just because she says she likes comics and and CBMs doesn't mean she has to be a sweaty nerd.... She prolly likes the idea of super heroes, and she's talented enough to bring them to life
Nerfherder1 - 1/5/2014, 9:32 AM
That being said... Rooney Mara for Harley Quinn or GTFO
ALmazing - 1/5/2014, 9:37 AM
Forget Ms Marvel, Starbuck for Captain Marvel.
darthballz - 1/5/2014, 9:41 AM
I can see her as Harley but not WW or Ms. Marvel. To be either of those characters, the actress really needs to be slap-you-in-the-face, knock-you-off-your-feet beautiful and i don't really see it here.

I think that Heath Ledger really set the bar for the Joker in any future take on the character. There was such unsaid depth that he put into the character that any interpretation of the Clown Prince of Crime will be a tremendous undertaking. I'm sure that anyone crazy enough to try and either pick up where he left off, or take it to a completely different direction, is in for a world of pain and scorn and criticism before shooting even begins.

That being said, Harley Quinn would have to have the same amount of commitment and talent from the actress to pull off the character properly. Anything less would be pointless to have. Does this woman have it? She had better if she truly understands this universe or fan-base.

My vote for any future Joker is Leo.
Nigrutin - 1/5/2014, 9:45 AM
Ms Marvel or Valkyrie!

That bitch fine tho..
MexicanSexyman - 1/5/2014, 9:52 AM
@darthballz, but most women that you described can't act for shit.
DrDoom - 1/5/2014, 9:57 AM
She would be a better fit for Moonstone than Ms. Marvel. I know the fan favourite is Yvonne, but Malin Akerman is still my choice for Carol. If Strahovski should play anyone, it should be Susan Storm.
NeoBaggins - 1/5/2014, 9:59 AM
Katee Sackhoff: "Um, why the [frick] do the users have to post pictures of me in my own damn article?"
Optimus83 - 1/5/2014, 10:04 AM
Katee Sackhoff. Harley Quinn/Ms. Marvel/Supergirl, ¡¡¡Cool!!!, And The New Joker Who???
m0th3r - 1/5/2014, 10:09 AM
Supergirl, Valkyrie, MsMarvel, Harley..i dont care...

And Sackhoff is HOT. She just doesnt dress up for every roll, but when she Most of these other bean poles work day and night to look that way
Canary - 1/5/2014, 10:26 AM
Malin Ackerman is too old Dr.Doom - shes over 40.
DrDoom - 1/5/2014, 10:44 AM
