Katee Sackhoff, supreme badass babe famous for her turn in Syfy's "Battlestar Galactica", will soon get geeks slobbering again, thanks to her appearance opposite Vin Diesel in David Twohy's upcoming RIDDICK, which as we all know has been thankfully slapped with an R rating. In an interview with Collider, the actress spoke a little about why it has been deemed too vicious for children under 17 unaccompanied by parents.
"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."
Sackhoff went on to describe her character, one of a team of mercenaries sent to hunt the elusive Riddick.
"Her name is Dahl and she’s a Nordic bounty hunter. She’s German. It’s just fantastic! There’s a scene where one of the characters screws with my character and I punch him in the face. She’s really very short-tempered and she’s got a short fuse. She’s funny. She’s very, very, very good at her job. She’s a sniper, and she’s the number two commanding officer, behind Matt Nable’s character, in our group of mercenaries. She’s great!"
