Battlestar Galactica and Riddick star Katee Sackhoff has been mentioned for a slew of comic book movie roles, with the most common suggestion being Carol Danvers/Ms. Marvel. Speaking with Total Film, Sackhoff talks about her interest in the genre. She reveals that she auditioned to play Wonder Woman in (presumably) NBC’s failed television series, and goes on to say that she’s still interested in portraying Diana Prince. “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!’ I would love to do that.” Gal Gadot is set to play Wonder Woman in 2015’s Batman vs. Superman, so it’s unlikely Sackhoff will have another shot at the role in the near future – unless they move forward with another TV show.
Sackhoff has also been vocal in the past about her desire to play Batman villainess Harley Quinn, and here, she reaffirms that interest. “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.” She then says that she would prefer to play a comic book villain than a hero, and goes on to explain why. “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.” You can click the link above for the rest of Total Film’s interview with Sackhoff. in which she talks about Riddick and her wanting a role in Star Wars: Episode VII.
