Katee Sackhoff Talks RIDDICK; Explains Why The Movie Earns Its Hard R Rating
The Battlestar Galactica actress chats to Collider about her role in the upcoming sci-fi sequel, and also reveals that we can expect quite a bit of R rated shenanigans - including some nudity from Miss Sackhoff herself. You're welcome fanboys..
Katee Sackhoff has remained a firm fan-favorite for her turn as Starbuck in the excellent Battlestar Galactica reboot from a few years back, but since then she hasn't really made any big waves aside from a few supporting roles in the likes of The Bionic Woman and 24, as well as appearances in some not very memorable movies. But that might all be about to change when she stars alongside Vin Diesel is the upcoming follow up to Chronicles Of Riddick called, umm, Riddick. Sackhoff plays a character named 'Dahl', a tough as nails nordic bounty hunter who Sackhoff describes as having a very short fuse - sounds familiar! "She’s funny. She’s very, very, very good at her job," says the actress, "She’s a sniper, and she’s the number two commanding officer, behind Matt Nable’s character, in our group of mercenaries.". Sackhoff says that she was very excited to get on board with David Twohy, but when the director told her that there would be nudity, she said she had to ask her Dad if it was ok first! Fortunately Mr Sackhoff gave his blessing, but aside from Katee in her birthday suit, what other R rated goodness awaits us? F-bombs ahead!..
"There’s a shitload of blood and there’s little pieces of nudity, here and there. There’s my nudity too, but it’s side boob, for three to five seconds. It’s not that big of a deal. It’s mostly for the language. My character and Matt Nable’s character say [frick], like every other word. It’s kind of fantastic, actually. He must have said [frick] 15 times, in every single scene. It’s pretty awesome. So, it’s mostly for language."
Sounds like good fun at least, and I think Sackhoff may have just piqued some interest among a few fans that weren't that bothered before! She also confirms her involvement in the all-female Expendables spin-off, saying she is "attached" but hasn't read a script yet. For the full interview click the link back to Collider below.
