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 fuck, like every other word. It’s kind of fantastic, actually. He must have said fuck 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.

Honestly, not a fan of this chick (look wise) doesn't do anything for the wang.

No Sackhoff rhyming with Jack(off) jokes .... I'm shocked. Disappointed and shocked.

Man, thought you were banned! Glad to see you around, you're one of the reasons this site is awesome.

Don't get me wrong, she's definitely not the hottest chick in the world....but she has her moments...

...plus, a chick that would have my back in a fight gets bonus points (a la Michelle Rodriguez)...

I love tough chicks tho ;)

@Tea if that is your book I cannot wait for the movie version
TheConMan28 - 11/21/2012, 7:29 PM
@TopCat89 you are the man for posting that video lol. i was thinking the exact same thing:P
elessarundomiel2382 - 11/21/2012, 8:27 PM
Just sounds wrong that her dad would give her permission to be nude. I mean how old is she? And to think he'd probably be watching this movie........alone.
