Riddick's Katee Sackhoff would love to play Harley Quinn

Aug. 21, 2013by: Niki Stephens

When we talk BATMAN characters that we'd like to see grace the big screen, one that commonly comes up is the villainous Harley Quinn. "Oh Mista J! I'd love to see my name in lights!" I've seen tons of fan art with potential actresses that the fans have in mind like Kristen Bell, the late Brittany Murphy, Christina Ricci, Rachel McAdams, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Zooey Deschanel, Fairuza Balk, and several others.

RIDDICK's Katee Sackhoff recently expressed interest in playing the character if their were ever plans to put her in an upcoming flick:

ESQ: There are a lot of superhero movies being made right now and Vin has been teasing that he's going to end up in Guardians of the Galaxy. Is there a female superhero that you would love to play if you had the chance?

KS: 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'm not opposed to the idea. I love Sackhoff as Starbuck. I remember the first time I saw her lounged in her bunk, smoking a cigar, and I thought, "That is one kick ass lady!" She would have to embrace her inner acrobat but that shouldn't be a problem. It would be cool if we did see Ms. Quinzel pop up at some point.

I'm with everyone else. How dare she answer a question honestly and enthusiastically. She should have said "Clearly I am not famous nor talented nor charming enough to play a part like that."

I think Starbuck is alittle too butch to play Harley. i would have loved to see the late Brittany Murphy play the part. But sinces she is gone, then Rachel McAdams coulddo, she has a big mouth on her, and I mean that in a good way. I always picture Harley having a large mouth.

Brittany Murphy was born to play that part. Too late, sadly.

You could just write an article titled "Every actor and most other people who are not actors want to be in a Batman film" and save some time.

Don't really know Katee sackhoff so I can't comment on her, but I really want Harley Quinn to get a big screen appearance soon. She's my favorite villain after two-face and joker.

dont worry know one knows who she is, unless you were unfortunate enough to watch BSG and the ending we all knew from the beginning that they actually did that killed the whole show

Anna Kendrick would be my go-to Harley in a future Batman flick.

Protip: When you meet a girl who'd rather dress up as Harley than one of a million Catwomen for Halloween...put a ring on it dude.

Tough character to bring to the screen though since its so closely associated with Arleen Sorkin's iconic voice performance. For Arkham City they brought on Tara Strong to voice Harley, and while she does her best I can't help but hear a little too much Timmy Turner...

Playing her in what? Nice non-story.

This just in: I would LOVE to play Killer Croc.

Where's the love, Schmoes?

I wouldn't mind seeing her play Harley Quinn. I think she could pull it off quite nicely. I know I'm in the minority and I'll welcome the thumbs down with open arms. That being said, I agree with others that the late Brittany Murphy was born for the role. It's a bummer she's gone though.

I'm ambivalent about Sackhoff since I find her kind of humdrum in all of her tough gal space marine roles. But on the other hand I'm curious what she could do with a role requiring a bit more 'zaniness.' Not necessarily Harley but give her something to do besides glare. So I'll upvote ya for this.

Out of that list above, I would love to see McAdams take the part. And please no Zooey Deschanel. She has zero range and is the same in every role.

I love the Harley Quinn character, she has one of the best origin stories of any comic book character ever and the success the character has had in crossing over from the animated series into the comics and other mediums is testament to what a great creation she is. Personally, I don't think Katee Sackhoff would fit the part. She strikes me as far too tough. She doesn't seem to have that sense of playfulness or naivete that Harley Quinn should have. I know Kristen Bell has been campagning to

I know Kristen Bell has been campagning to play the part for ages. I think Amanda Seyfried might actually do a pretty good job at it.

What's the point?

Harley Quinn is not anywhere on scripts or upcoming projects so what is the point? Parker Posey would be great (too old, though). So would Anna Faris (seriously think about it...she would be good). Long story short: No one is asking for a Harley Quinn....

Dude, I like how we always have these B-List actors saying that they want to play comic book roles that would go to much more recognizable, talented names if they ever came to pass.

Remember Angie Harmon wanting to play She-Hulk last year?

To be fair, Katee Sackhoff is a little more popular right now than Angie Harmon. She's at least got a movie coming out, and who knows after that. But you're right, she's not on any Top Five lists...yet.

Who? Why not just get Tara Strong? You know. The woman who ACTUALLY voices Harley Quinn. Bonus! Who LOOKS like Harley Quinn.

Naa

They should keep Harley Quinn out of the movies until they can do a decent Penguin or Mr. Freeze.

Please no! Already not looking forward to her being in Riddick. Overrated and tired of hearing about her nerd cred.

Hated her in Battlestar

Her stupid, pursed lips all the time, trying to look sexy. Didn't work. She was just annoying.
I hope I never see her in anything else. Ever again.

Perfect Casting

This is good for three major reasons:

1. She's a talented actress. BSG FTW.

2. She can play sexy, look above.

3. She looks the part more than the studios would get right, especially considering points 1 and 2.

I love me some Starbuck. I love the character and Sackoff did a great job whenever she was on screen. BSG is still my favorite sci-fi series. That being said, I don't think she is right for the part. I've always imagined her as more of a Rogue type character. Kristen Bell is still my #1 pick for Harley Quin. Now the real question is... why is this even being discussed. No way will they have Harley in Batman vs Superman, and it will be at least 4+ years from now until they even start to think

Especially if the later does well and they will be doing a bunch of Justice League movies.

I thought she was great in BSG...even when she went mad in the final series following a map in her head only she could make sense of but couldnt...because that led to the shot in the leg to Gaeta, the amputation...and his descent in to illusions of righteousness...that concluded in an epic two part mutiny storyline - great stuff. All that said..I do not see her as Harley Quinn, sorry :o)

She's good, but...

Harley Quinn is one of my favorites, but my dream actress has always been Parker Posey. I think she would bring just the right amount of crazy and funny. Also Paz de la Huerta. But Starbuck would still do a great job.
