Katee Sackhoff kicks butt. The talented actress will long be remembered for her role as Starbuck in the new Battlestar Galactica, and she’s stayed busy since then. Most recently, she took on a role in a Riddick. She spoke with Total Film about the role, and they ventured into other territory – like comic books and Star Wars. Sackhoff is more than willing to take on iconic roles and even auditioned for the Wonder Woman television show:
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 remember thinking to myself, ‘You obviously haven’t seen my work!
As cool as Wonder Woman is, she would love to get a chance to play Harley Quinn and this isn’t the first time she’s expressed her love for the character. She told Total Film:
I would love to play Harley Quinn. I just think it’s amazing. I mean I think I might give away my firstborn to have an opportunity to play Harley Quinn…
I love trying to understand the villain, and trying to understand the things they do and why they do them, and I’ve always found her and The Joker, you almost can’t understand them. And it makes it so much more interesting because everything’s fair game, and I love that. I loved the usefulness of her, I thought that was interesting, and I just think that it’s a fantastic character.
And as far as Star Wars, she wouldn’t mind playing in that universe either. She’s already voiced a fantastic character on The Clone Wars and is a fan of Han Solo but getting involved in the new movies wouldn’t stink:
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.
I’d love to see Sackhoff in any or all of these roles. She would even manage to make a rock interesting.
This 59″ x 45″ fleece blanket is made of 100% polyester and is sure to keep you warm through the winter. It features Harley Quinn posing on a black, red, and white playing card pattern with a deliciously, mischievous smile on her face.

Don’t get too excited because there’s no plan in the works for Harley Quinn to make an appearance in a live-action superhero movie, but if plans happen, Katee Sackhoff is up for the role. Speaking with Esquire she noted:
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 hope the right people find out about this and make it happen! I wouldn’t hold your breath though as we are about to embark on the Ben Affleck Batman experience and there has been no talk thus far about the character making an appearance.

The new Sideshow Harley Quinn Premium Format Figure stands 21 inches tall, weighs 9 pounds, and exudes maniacal sass. Interchangeable heads let you switch from masked glee to an unmasked, bratty, stuck out tongue. In either case, you get all of the things that make Harley Quinn so…Harley.

Here’s some art for everyone who’s ever wondered what superheroes do on their days off. This is the second installment in a series of prints from Gregoire Guillemin that imagine what superheroes do when they’re not being super. It’s kind of just like what the rest of us do, but with a snazzier wardrobe.

It’s not quite a romance made in heaven, but Harley Quinn and Deadpool make quite the couple in this version of The Notebook. The idea belongs to artist Marco D’Alfonso who submitted his work to Comic Book Resources The Line It Is Drawn series. Last week, in honor of Valentine’s Day, the challenge was for artists to pair up two comic book characters in a romantic scene. I suppose for these two, dancing in a rain of blood would qualify.

Don’t ask me how skeletons and skulls make things cuter, but they do. Skelanimals are freaking adorable, and they only gain precious points when they’re mashed with DC Comics characters like Harley Quinn and Wonder Woman. I swear plushies weren’t this cool when I was little.
You can pre-order the duo now, and they’ll arrive in March.

Harley Quinn has ditched her old look in favor of this even skimpier outfit. Sigh.
Still, the 8.5″ statue will look nice when paired with the version coming out for her 20th birthday. Both collectibles were sculpted by Jack Mathews. You can pre-order this now (and it will probably go fast) for shipment in January 2013.
