And as always, Katee Sackhoff rocked. I love Starbuck so much, she's my female equivalent of SuperJack! I call her SuperKara!Now SuperJack and Super"Kara" will be together. And, and, and as much as I adore Chloe and the idea of Chloe/Jack, if Keifer Sutherland and Katee Sackhoff (hee, KS/KS) have chemistry and they went somewhere romantic with them? I could deal. (God, it would be better than frickin' Renee!!! UGH!!!) Boyfriend, schmoyfriend.
KATEE SACKHOFF JOINS '24'
Suddenly, I find myself counting the minutes until 24's new season. Perhaps this is why: Katee Sackhoff is joining the cast!
Sources confirm to me exclusively that the Battlestar Galactica heroine has been tapped to play the series regular role of Dana Walsh, a highly respected and down-to-earth data analyst at the new and improved New York branch of CTU.
Translation: Chloe-Starbuck catfight alert!
This fraktastic casting coup hit a road block last week when Sackhoff abruptly took herself out of the running, prompting me to post this blind item. But late Friday, word surfaced that the BSG badass was once again in the mix.
Here's more scoop on Sackhoff's character...
She's in a relationship with fellow agent Davis Cole (played by the just-cast Freddie Prinze. Jr.), and she apparently has a skeleton in her closet she's trying desperately to keep hidden.
As I previously reported, 24's eighth season -- which premieres Jan. 17, 2010 -- will be set in the Big Apple and center on an assassination plot against a visiting foreign leader (Slumdog Millionaire's Anil Kapoor). In addition to Sackhoff, Prinze, and Williamson, new Day 8 blood includes Kissing Jessica Stein's Jennifer Westfeldt (as a journalist with ties to Kapoor's diplomat) and The Starter Wife's Chris Diamantopoulos (as President Taylor's Chief of Staff).
