Katee Sackhoff Really, Really Wants To Play Harley Quinn
A lot of actors and actresses like to throw their names in the ring for movie roles, especially superhero/comic book movie roles. It seems campaigns started by either an actor or their fans pop up every day. Well another actress had mentioned that she would really like to play a comic book role, but this time it’s one that sounds like a pretty good idea. Kate Sackhoff says that she would absolutely love to play Harley Quinn.
Katee Sackhoff is probably best known for her role as Starbuck in Battlestar Galactica, but the actress will be taking on a more action oriented role next month when she appears as a bounty hunter in the Vin Diesel film Riddick. While talking with Esquire about that film and her TV show Longmire, the actress was asked if there were any honest to goodness comic book movie roles she’d like to play. It didn’t take long for the actress to think of someone. Sackhoff revealed that she wants to play Mr. J‘s main squeeze and she’d even give up her first born to do it:
I love Harley Quinn. I do. I just love it. 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.
I’ve got to say, Sackhoff would be an interesting choice for Ms. Quinn. I think most everyone agreed that Brittany Murphy was the perfect choice for the role before her untimely demise, but if WB do get around to bringing the character into their new cinematic universe after things get kicked off in Batman vs. Superman, fans will have to start thinking of realistic casting. We’d have to hear Sachoff‘s Harley voice, but she could physically pull off the role. What do you think? Could you see Sackhoff as Harley?
