Katee Sackhoff campaigns for Harley Quinn again, also wants to be Wonder Woman and in Star Wars

January 6th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Back in August while promoting Riddick, Katee Sackhoff mentioned how much she would like to play Harley Quinn in a new Batman film and now in a recent interview with Total Film, she repeats a familiar phrase:

 “I think I might give away my firstborn to have an opportunity to play Harley Quinn.”

That’s not the only role she wants though. Sackhoff also mentioned wanting to play Wonder Woman and how she auditioned for the part in David E. Kelly’s failed pilot back in 2011.

“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 I remember thinking to myself, ‘You obviously haven’t seen my work!”

Well we all know that Wonder Woman went to Gal Gadot in Batman vs Superman, but there’s another franchise she’d like to be a part of……Star Wars:

“Star Wars meant everything to me growing up. Star Wars was, I mean, it was the first time I remember seeing three movies that all kind of went together. It was just an amazing final understanding of what a trilogy was…I was absolutely obsessed, I mean I wanted to be… The sad thing is, I never wanted to be Princess Leia, I always wanted to be Han Solo! [laughs] I’ve never really been drawn to these female roles, but I think that The Clone Wars was so much fun for me to play, I mean a warrior….If J.J. would listen, I would play a rock in the Star Wars movies. I think that they’re fantastic, I think that he’s a great choice, and I’m excited to see what happens in that world.”

Well she’s too late for Wonder Woman, but I could see her as Harley Quinn. I’m not sure about Star Wars. What I really like her for is Captain Marvel.

What do you think?
