SDCC'11: Katee Sackhoff Wants To Play Daredevil’s Typhoid Mary

SDCC'11: Katee Sackhoff Wants To Play <i>Daredevil’s</i> Typhoid Mary

The actress best known as Starbuck on Battlestar Galactica, hungers for the chance to play one of Daredevil's most complicated villains/love interest.

The idea of Katee Sackhoff playing a villain isn't that much of a stretch. In the failed television series, Bionic Woman that is in fact the role she played. And may I add she played it with gusto and was one of the few bright spots in a rather mundane show.

Typhoid Mary is a plumb role for any actress. The character suffers from mental illnesses, one of them being, multiple personalities. There are 3 different personalities, one is "Mary," who is pleasant, shy, a pacifist at her core. The other is "Typhoid" who is playful, sexy, but also violent at times. And then there is the third, "Bloody Mary," who is the beast. She is full on psychotic, no one is safe around her, violent illogical decision making. I think Sackhoff would relish the amount of range that would require from this challenging role, and I think she can deliver the goods.

Interest in Typhoid Mary
Who do you need to @#$% to get Typhoid Mary? Because obviously it’s not working for me! [Seriously though] I’m obessessed with Typhoid Mary, I think that she is a phenomenal character. A couple of years ago I actually got a bunch of Typhoid Mary comic books at the Golden Apple in Los Angeles and like five seconds after I walked out it was online…

Reason she wants to play a villain
That’s crazy! I love her. I love being bad. I think it’s so much more fun, because it’s so much more challenging to make people like you. I think that’s what fun about it – when you play the villain…you want people to want you to win, and then you’ve succeeded [as an actor]. So the villains are so much more complicated and fun to play as an actor.

whatever if fox is make another daredevil film it will fail with nomader how "good' david slade is unless of course it has the same writters who wrote the overrated X-MEN A** and or firing slade and repalcing him with matt vaughn himself because the onlky fox can keep milking thier marvel properties x-men,fantastic four, and daredevil is to hire vaughn to directed all of there marvel cbm's and or hire all the writers and all other members from the crew of FIRST A** unless they hire someone like tarantino for deadpool and wolverine 2 and another "magic vaughn like-dricter that can somwehow get critics and audiences alike itno thinking that thier cbms are supiers to all other despite hard evedence including the dark knight.

if some actor or actress especially one from battle star gallactica says they want to play a comic book charecter on screen it dosent mean s***. after all donald glover wanted to play spider-man and we all know how that turned out. the battlestar galactiga cast is overrated, im so sick of by now evryone on the cast saying they want be part of cbm as well people saying GOOD CHOISE when thay have no knowledge of the actor/actresses tralent. the cast of battlestar galactica are better off on reality tv after there saying stuff like this to get atention from the cbm community.

Not the first time she's done a comic book character role. To date:
-She voiced She-Hulk in an episode of The Super Hero Squad Show.
-She's voicing Sarah Essen in the upcoming Batman: Year One movie.
-She's going to voice Black Cat in the Spider-Man videogame "Spider-Man: Edge of Time", making her the second Battlestar Galactica alum to play the character (the first being Tricia "Six" Helfer in The Spectacular Spider-Man).
