Katee Sackhoff Really Wants To Play 'Harley Quinn' In A BATMAN Movie

In an interview with Esquire, the former Battlestar Galactica actress (who we'll see next in Riddick) reveals that she'd very much like to play the popular Batman villain on the big screen. How much? "Sell her first born" much! Read on for more..

Self professed fangirl Katee Sackhoff has said she'd be interested in playing quite a few comic book characters in the past -- and was even rumored to be up for the role of Typhoid Mary in a Daredevil reboot that never happened. But in an interview with Esquire the Riddick actress comes across most passionate about The Joker's ever-popular sidekick. "I love Harley Quinn. I do. I just love it," Sackhoff tells the mag. "It's not been done before. It's this fantastic mix. I mean, it's like the female Joker. Who wouldn't want to do that? Quite potentially — it's not around so I wouldn't feel the weight of it — I'd probably sell my first born at this point to do that." Batman will next grace the big screen in the sequel to Man Of Steel, but it's highly unlikely that Harley will make an appearance in that..still, if we get a few more solo Bat-flicks (which we are bound to) later down the line it's surely a given that such a popular character will pop up at some point. What would you guys think of Katie in the role?

Katee will be a guest on The Schmoes Know Podcast tomorrow night, along with Thor: The Dark World's Zach Levi so be sure to tune in for that.

Marvel should get her for maybe valkyrie or spider woman.
JatevinM - 8/21/2013, 10:51 AM
Christina Ricci is the only Harley I want
yingyangpalms - 8/21/2013, 10:54 AM
My casting couch is the place to go for Harley auditions!

dnno1 - 8/21/2013, 10:57 AM
I always thought that Jenny McCarthy would have made a good Harley.

Greengo - 8/21/2013, 10:58 AM

@BaneSmash - tattoo of the rogues. nice
marantaz - 8/21/2013, 11:02 AM
Omg, batz. You mean for every girl featured here as display, there are three dozen of those at the conventions? Even the chance to meet Stan Lee isn't worth that! Can I claim PTSD from this?
TheSoulEater - 8/21/2013, 11:04 AM
I'm sure she does, but no
Ocelot - 8/21/2013, 11:04 AM
She would be a good Ms Marvel.
TheRationalNerd - 8/21/2013, 11:11 AM
We need to see...

Joker
Harley
Poison Ivy
Mr.Freeze
Penguin
Killer Croc
Clayface

In the upcoming Batman reboot franchise!
TheRationalNerd - 8/21/2013, 11:14 AM
Oh yeah and Riddler too! lol Don't really care to much for him because he's no Physical threat to Batman but he could most def have a huge role in setting up the ultimate death trap for bats!

I also wanted to ask why Hollywood never gives roles to the people who not only can look the part they want to play but people who actually WANT to play the character???
Jollem - 8/21/2013, 11:14 AM
@BaneSmash - neato. images of the characters taken from various comics or are they original?
CherryBomb - 8/21/2013, 11:23 AM

Katee Sackhoff seems to be trying to get every female role in Hollywood.
I like her, but maybe not for Harley.
fettastic - 8/21/2013, 11:24 AM
Although we simply MUST have Harley sooner rather than later, I would prefer an actress that can actually act in the role.
subzero1077 - 8/21/2013, 11:24 AM
I'm more for Kristen Bell playing Harley Quinn. I know she's been begging to play her for a while now.
MrChuff - 8/21/2013, 11:24 AM
No, thank you.
move on.
BackwardGalaxy - 8/21/2013, 11:25 AM
works for me
FedmanhKassad - 8/21/2013, 11:25 AM
why not ? she looks good.
CherryBomb - 8/21/2013, 11:25 AM
Amanda Seyfried has the perfect doll-eyed look for Harley Quinn



I'm not sure if she can play "crazy" but she's showing off her versatility more and more. So who knows!
Mrsinister - 8/21/2013, 11:28 AM
Amanda seyfried looks perfect!!

However I always thought Brittany Murphy would have been perfect for the part
Indy - 8/21/2013, 11:30 AM
i hate harley Quinn!!!! Joker works alone.
gulducati - 8/21/2013, 11:30 AM
When has an actor successfully campaigned for a role and got it? Well since Samuel L. Jackson, and that turned out great. Anyways, not saying it hasn't happened before, but has it?
subzero1077 - 8/21/2013, 11:34 AM
Damn, Brittany Murphy would have been awesome. Sad that she's no longer with us :(
Jebediah - 8/21/2013, 11:43 AM
Miley Cyrus for Harley Quinn! She's got the look and she's a former Disney girl so we know she's got the crazy. Plus, what better way to stick it to Disney (Marvel) then become one DC's most beloved femme fatales?
TheBeard - 8/21/2013, 11:48 AM
I wonder if Ledger had not died, then would we have gotten Harley in the dark knight rises?
OldBenKenobi - 8/21/2013, 11:51 AM
Any way to have Harley in a movie without the Joker? Cause seriously, guys... too much Joker... Hush, Freeze, Croc, Riddler, or Anarky would be great for the next movie. Actually now that I think about it, Riddler team up with Hush? That would be the best Batman movie in history.
SkullFace616 - 8/21/2013, 12:08 PM
I'd love to see Deathstroke turn up.

However, Harley, yep, she looks good, so do Kristen Bell and Amanda Seyfried... who can pull off the acting best though?
TheRationalNerd - 8/21/2013, 12:13 PM
@TheBeard

Mannnn oh man, I think about what they would've done with Joker's character all the time. I was actually thinking that we would've seem a Scarecrow and Joker team up where they both would create laughing gas that would drive citizens insane! Keep in mind that all of this would be happening as Bane is taking over! would've been too epic!
TheRationalNerd - 8/21/2013, 12:15 PM
I think I see what you're trying to say there. We're you considering that Joker would be overused because I honestly didn't think they should use him in the first film. I would live to see him as the main antagonist within the 3rd film. Have all the other guys appear in the films before him and have him being one of the main baddies pulling all the strings.

@gulducati

Good question!
fettastic - 8/21/2013, 12:24 PM
Did somebody say Brittany Murphy?

fearitself18 - 8/21/2013, 12:24 PM
You know I had a wife, beautiful, like you...

@gulducati

Paul Giamatti for The Rhino is a good example.
