Despite not having a title (and probably not a finished script), we've been hearing about the "Female Expendables" projects for some time now. It's the kind of pitch that would definitely get you in the door: "Take 'The Expendables,' but remove all of the old dudes and replace them with hot, ass kicking ladies!" MMA fighter and 'Haywire' star Gina Carano is attached to star, but it looks like the first member of her team has been selected and anyone who has watched SyFy's 'Battlestar Galactica' will know what a great choice Katee Sackhoff for this kind of project.
Katee Sackhoff has floated around the galaxy a bit in the years since 'Battlestar Galactica' famously ended. After a few short-lived stints on NBC series 'The Bionic Woman,' FOX's '24,' 'CSI,' and the un-picked up Dick Wolf drama 'Lost & Found,' the former Kara Thrace has finally come back down to Earth...for now.
Sackhoff currently stars as Detective Victoria "Vic" Moretti of A&E's new Wyoming procedural drama 'Longmire,' which premiered last night, and follows the Craig Johnson novels of the same name. Sackhoff considers Vic to be one of the first "normal" characters she's ever played, but insists on the same brand of feminine strength she brings to all her roles, science-fiction and the more grounded.
We recently had a chance to sit down with the lovely Katee Sackhoff, not only to discuss her character on the excellent new drama 'Longmire,' but also her eventual turn in the upcoming high-concept 'The Chronicles of Riddick' sequel, dream projects past and present, and believe it or not, when you might see her on a stripper pole!
Oh yes, fellas. It's happening.
