05.17.13 - Katee in Zooey Magazine
Zooey Magazine just featured Katee in an exclusive interview conducted recently which showcases some very elegant photos as well as an in-depth Q&A discussing her career, her life as well as her current series, 'Longmire', which has its 2nd Season premiering May 27th on A&E..
I love playing Vic Moretti, she’s such a spit fire. Last season we saw Vic struggling with her relationship with her husband and the reasons (some obvious and talked about, others more clandestine and secret)… they moved from Philadelphia to Absoroka County, Wyoming.
We will have more of that this season.
Also her relationship with Walt is an interesting one. She cares for him and admires him but because of the problems in her marriage she may be reaching out to him. Then of course we have more crime, more shootings, more wild animals, and beautiful scenery. All the things the loyal “Longmire” fan base has come to expect with a lot more personal relationships this season.
This character is a lot more like myself than anyone I’ve portrayed. She’s strong and extremely capable but she’s flawed and damaged. She’s girly with a whole lot of attitude thrown in. I love that about her.
She’s not as outwardly masculine as quite a few of the characters I’ve become known for, and she’s a whole lot less crazy too!
Katee's latest project, 'Sexy Evil Genius' is slated for release on DVD April 9th.
Co-starring in the flick alongside Katee is Seth Green, William Baldwin, Michelle Trachtenberg and Harold Perrineau.
A recent review of the DVD gave the film a glowing recommendation and called it "clever" with "a few great twists".
This one's a very, very strange title. Any time you can call a movie released strange, well, that's something to say, especially these days.
In fact, about the best way to describe this as a romantic comedy by way of “The Usual Suspects”. It's easy to tell from the outset that something very, very strange is going on here, but figuring out just what is going to be a bit of a trip.
03.11.13 - Katee Sackhoff 'Longmire' Q&A: "Fans don't like it when I act pretty"
Katee recently answered some questions for DigitalSpy.com about her series, Longmire.
The show's first season will be available on DVD May 28th and begins airing in the UK this week. Katee heads back to New Mexico this week as well to start shooting Season 2.
Here's an excerpt from the interview:
DigitalSpy: Do fans approach you now to talk about Longmire as opposed to Battlestar or any of your other roles?
Katee: "They do - this character is a spitfire, which I think is an attitude that the fans like me to have. I don't think they like it when I put a dress on and act all pretty! So it has enough of what they're used to seeing from me for them to be comfortable in watching this new show, even though it's very different.
"I think that there are similarities to Battlestar Galactica though - the question in the show was, what does this limited population do in very tight quarters, when their backs are against the wall and they're fighting for survival. It was a very interesting through-line for Battlestar.
"With this show, it's very similar in the sense that it's wide-open spaces, with very few people, so it has some parallels in... what do people do in these circumstances and how do they act?"
02.01.13 - Katee Sackhoff Talks 'The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia', Her Own Supernatural Experience, and Eating Worms
Today is the release of Katee's latest film, 'The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia'. In an exclusive interview with FEARNET, Katee talks about working on the film as well her own ghostly experience and what it was like on the set of the movie.
FEAR.NET: The film takes the “based on a true story” concept and blows it up to a whole new level, but it does it in an entertaining way. How important was it for you to find the grounded, real story in there to latch onto?
KATEE: It was actually quite important. The most important thing, for me, was that you had this family dynamic going on, and I wanted those relationships to be honest and real. I think that having my character be as problematic as she is in certain areas of her life, it made those relationships easier, in a sense, to figure out how they would play because I think everyone has that family member that you just wish would grow up. I think that was an easy thing to find, but it’s always important, especially in a horror movie or genre film, to find the realism in it because you’ll lose an audience so quickly if you don’t. We really wanted to do the family justice and make them happy because it, ultimately, happened to them. There’s creative license, of course, though.
'The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia' is now playing in theaters and is available On Demand.

11.21.12 - Katee Talks Acting Outlaws, Riddick, Female Expendables Film & more w/ Collider.com
Katee unloads about all of her upcoming projects (Oculus, Riddick, Longmire Season 2, etc) in this exclusive interview w/ Collider.
Here's an excerpt:
COLLIDER: Are you surprised that it’s taken this long to get an all-female action movie like this made?
SACKHOFF: This business is hard. People and producers and studios and finance guys get caught up in saying, “Women don’t sell movies,” or “This person doesn’t sell foreign,” or “You have to attach guys first,” or “People don’t want to see women do this.” I’ve heard those things so many times that I’ve actually heard myself say them, a number of times.
It is nice for someone to finally take a chance.
In the last couple of years, our business and a lot of people have stopped taking chances and have started just recycling old ideas. There is a market for that. Trust me, I watch the movies, so I know there’s a market for it. But, I also think there’s a market for things that are new and different and take chances. Those are the movies that really take people by surprise. I don’t know.
I am surprised it’s taken this long. I’m happy that it did because I wouldn’t have been in it.
Katee has a slew of new films coming out next year including The Haunting in Georgia, Sexy, Evil, Genius and of course the new Riddick film. Never one to sit still for long Katee is already on her way to Alabama to start shooting her scenes for the upcoming horror film, Oculus.
Doctor Who’s Karen Gillan stars as Kaylie, a young woman who grew up haunted by the mysterious murder of her parents a decade ago. Though her brother went to prison for the crime, Kaylie is instead convinced that a haunted antique mirror was really to blame. And though her brother emerges from the slammer ready to move on, Kaylie can’t help but keep digging into the incident.
Katee is on board to play Marie, Kaylie’s mother, in flashback scenes. Director Mike Flanagan co-wrote the script with Jeff Howard and the film is currently shooting in Alabama.
07.11.12 - Longmire's Katee Sackhoff on Finally Playing a Character Who Has Her Shit Together via AV Club
"It’s been a lot of work. It’s fun, because it’s exciting, and you’re in a different place every day, but I’ve never had to drive an hour and a half to work and drive myself. It kind of feels like an independent film, to be honest. You get up in the morning, and you look where you are and you realize it’s 65 miles away. And you get in your car with your coffee and start memorizing your dialogue on the way there." [Laughs.]
Sackhoff talked to The A.V. Club about changing up the energy on set, driving miles upon miles to get to work, and working with Dreyfuss as a 20-year-old.
When I got the role for Max Bickford, I was 20 years old. I had done a series for a year when I was 19, but I’d never been to New York before. I mean, I’d never even visited New York before, and all of a sudden I was moving there, and it was just a complete shock for me and my senses. My best girlfriend was from there, though, so I had family there if I needed them, but it was amazing. I learned so much, and I wish that I could go back and say to my little 20-year-old self, “You’re working with Peter O’Toole and Eli Wallach and Marcia Gay Harden and Ann Jackson and Richard Dreyfuss. You’re working with these people. Wake the fuck up!” [Laughs.] But I was 20. I was like, “Whatever. It’s fine.”

05.30.12 - Katee Sackhoff on Organic Eating, Hybrid Driving via the Mother Nature Network
"If something comes with a peel I don't buy it organic because it's way too expensive," says Katee Sackhoff, who grew up in a vegetable-loving family and has tried to grown her own. "My tomatoes got infested with some weird disease this last year. I was really upset." A Harley-Davidson owner, she thinks hybrid drivers drive too slowly but has nevertheless decided to get one, possibly a Highlander or a Lexus.
05.24.12 - Katee Sackhoff's new role is down to Earth via LAtimes
Katee Sackhoff is rough, tough and buff. At least, that's how millions ofsci-fi fans know the statuesque blond actress from"Battlestar Galactica," on which she played hotshot fighter pilot Lt. Kara "Starbuck" Thrace for four seasons.
Coming back to TV for the contemporary western crime drama "Longmire," Sackhoff will still flex her muscles, just in a slightly different way. Her character is a transplanted Philadelphia detective, Victoria Moretti, who's wrestling with her new life as a small-town deputy in Wyoming.
"She's a little Italian spitfire," Sackhoff said of "Vic" Moretti. "She's very strong, very capable physically and emotionally, but none of this makes sense to her. She's completely out of her element, so there's a different kind of fight going on."
Other departures from Starbuck include a little levity and more clothes.

How has living thyroid cancer impacted your life?
It’s a nightmare. I’m still going through it. [My medication dosage] was just too high and I started having massive panic attacks in public.
I went [to my doctor] and they [lowered the doses] and now I’m tired again.
It’s just constant monitoring [and] comes with stresses.
01.23.12 - Katee Sackhoff Talks Motorcycles, Playing Bi and Her Lesbian Fanbase - AfterEllen.com Interview
AfterEllen.com recently posted an interview with Katee which took place during the recent TCA Press Conference for her new show, 'Longmire'.
Here is an excerpt from the interview:
Sackhoff said she embraced her own masculinity, but enjoys her femininity just as much. "I also love wearing a pair of Louboutins and looking like a piece of ass and walking in and having every man in the room want to f--k me," she said.
"Let's be honest! I know that's straightforward. I love to have to play both sides of the coin. And I love to have both of those attributes in my characters as well because I think that's real and I think every woman has that, it's just what side you lean more toward and I think I'm just more down the middle."

'Longmire' is set for a summer 2012 release on A&E.

It's a fun interview from Comic-Con 2011.
Here's an excerpt:
Are you happy and pleased with the way Starbuck "ended" on the show?
I was. For me it worked and I enjoyed the way that it ended. I'm glad she didn't just walk off into the sunset; that was the last thing that I wanted.
I think that they couldn't answer all the questions, I don't think there was enough time. I think that they also kind of wrote themselves into a hole where they really couldn't explain definitively what she was, so they decided to leave it. And maybe they do, maybe Ron Moore knows. But he hasn't told me.
08.31.11 - Katee Returns to Television with A&E's 'Longmire'

04.08.11 - Happy Birthday, Katee Sackhoff!
The Entertainment Weekly staff have always been avid supporters, and fans of, Katee. This has become most apparent after they posted a special birthday message to Katee on their website.
Since Battlestar Galactica, Sackhoff has popped up here and there. She was the best thing about the failed Bionic Woman reboot. She played the much-despised Dana on the final season of 24. She's had a recurring role on the current season of CSI. The Battlestar goodwill will keep her employed as a geek icon for years -- see her cameo on The Big Bang Theory or her occasional voice roles on Robot Chicken (Bitch Puddin'!) She's starred in a couple of TV pilots that weren't picked up by their networks. One vaguely imagines that there could be an awesome FX show with her name on it, maybe about a battle-scarred Iraq war vet who solves mysteries in Pittsburgh or something. (That's just an elevator pitch. But Pittsburgh= So hot right now!)
Personally, I just hope she can find another role as tailor-made for her as Starbuck: We need more funny, cynical, broken-hearted, totally badass, totally hot women on television. Sending our best birthday wishes your way, Ms. Sackhoff.

03.28.11 - Katee Lands Role on A&E's 'LONGMIRE' Pilot

02.11.11 - Katee Talks Sci-Fi and Role Models
During Katee's recent attendance to the Sci-Fi Expo in Texas she was interviewed by Lillian Standefer from SciFiMafia.com who asked her a variety of questions about role models, Starbuck, auditions and Tricia Helfer!
You know, I grew up not really seeing a lot of role models on television for women. There really just wasn't a lot there and all my role models were men. So I think that when I finally found Sigourney Weaver, that's when I started to really get excited. I started following everything that she did. It feels good.
You can read the full interview at SciFiMafia.com and see pictures from the Expo.

The Hollywood Reporter spilled the beans today and had this to say about the film's plot:
'Genius' centers on a group of strangers brought together in a downtown Los Angeles bar by their mutual ex-girlfriend (Sackhoff). The woman is mysterious about her intentions, but by the night's end, revenge will be had, romance made and the wronged woman will have delivered on her reputation as the sexy evil genius at the center of all their lives.

11.08.10 - Katee Starts Shooting Her Next Film 'The Haunting In Georgia'
The Hollywood Reporter just released an article today about Katee's next film, The Haunting in Georgia in which she portrays Joyce, the sister of Abigail Spencer's character, Lisa Wyrick.
The film starts shooting this week in Baton Rouge, LA where Katee returns a week later after her recent visit there with Acting Outlaws co-founder, Tricia Helfer for their cross-country motorcycle trek.
The film is an indirect follow up to the 2009 film, The Haunting in Connecticut. Although the beginning of a franchise film, the two stories are unrelated except for the fact that they both involved paranormal activity.
Also starring in the film is Chad Michael Murray and Emily Alyn Lind as well as Cicely Tyson.
The article reports:
The four play the members of the real-life Wyrick family, beleaguered by ghosts and a terrifying mystery that haunts their new home.
Murray portrays Andy Wyrick, the blue collar, no-nonsense husband to Spencer's Lisa Wyrick, a young mother struggling with horrifying visions, a curse she shares with her wayward sister Joyce (Sackhoff) and now fears has been passed on to her young daughter Heidi (Lind). Cicely Tyson, who will next be seen in The Help, has also signed on.
Our friend Al Norton over at 411Mania.com recently spoke with Katee about her new role on CSI for his column Two Tivos To Paradise.
"Working with George (Eads) is great. He and I are cut from the same cloth. He's the kind of guy you could sit and talk football with for hours over beers. I like that. It reminds me of being home with my family.
You know, things happen for a reason and I'm happy to be on the show now playing Frankie. She's got a lot of fire to her and I really enjoy playing that. This character fits me.
Al also mentioned the Wonder Woman re-boot that has began to make the rounds around Hollywood and if Katee would be willing to dye her hair to get the part -- here's what Katee had to say about that:
"My hair is red now so I'm not that far off!! Of course I would!"
10.01.10 - ACTING OUTLAWS KATEE SACKHOFF AND TRICIA HELFER LAUNCH "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?" CONTEST
ACTING OUTLAWS KATEE SACKHOFF AND TRICIA HELFER LAUNCH "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?" CONTEST
Acting Outlaws and the Gulf Restoration Network Ask Supporters to Submit Emails, Photos and Videos of What They're Doing To Help The Environment.
LOS ANGELES (October 1st, 2010) - Later this month Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica, 24, Nip/Tuck) and Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica, Burn Notice, Dark Blue) will begin a motorcycle ride across the United States, from Los Angeles to Louisiana, taking them over 2500 miles for what they have dubbed as "The LA La Ride" - a charity event raising money and awareness for the Gulf Coastal Region still being affected by the BP oil spill disaster.
Acting Outlaws has joined forces for this event with The Gulf Restoration Network, an environmental advocacy group focused solely on the health of the Gulf of Mexico.
As part of "The LA La Ride" campaign, Acting Outlaws and The Gulf Restoration Network have launched the "What Are You Doing?" Contest - a contest in which entrants are asked to submit emails, photos and videos of what they are doing in their own lives to help the environment.
The "What Are You Doing?" Contest (derived from the Acting Outlaws slogan, "Do something!"), will showcase some of the best entrees throughout the month of October on the Acting Outlaws website (www.actingoutlaws.org) before announcing a grand prize winner and runner up on November 1st, 2010.
The grand prize winner of the contest will receive the opportunity to interview both Katee Sackhoff and Tricia Helfer via Skype exclusively for the Acting Outlaws website and will also receive an Acting Outlaws t-shirt, a Gulf Restoration Network t-shirt and an autographed photo of both Sackhoff and Helfer. The runner-up will receive both t-shirts and an autographed photo as well.
Both winners will have their entry featured on both the Acting Outlaws website as well as The Gulf Restoration Network website.
Involving others, including their fans, has always been a consistent and integral part of both actresses involvement with charities and causes. Helfer comments, "I'm constantly inspired by the little things that people are doing out there to benefit not only themselves, but others around them and the earth as a whole. I know I need to do more myself, but I truly believe that if we all do a little something, collectively we can achieve impressive, positive changes."
Sackhoff adds to that concept, "How do we make protecting the environment inexpensive and easy? In today's world people have more pressing concerns than the ozone or the polar ice caps. Every day people just like you are creating new ways to help. So here's your chance. Speak up, tell us what you do, and inspire more people to 'Do Something'."
Aaron Viles, Campaign Director for the Gulf Restoration Network, says, "It's easy to look at the BP disaster in the Gulf and just be overwhelmed. But Katee and Tricia are setting a great example that everyone can do something for the Gulf, whether it's as simple as texting to donate, or cutting down on the number of car trips you make each week. It all adds up, and we're all going to need to stay committed to help the Gulf recover in the months and years ahead."
For the full details regarding the "What Are You Doing?" Contest please visit www.actingoutlaws.org for instructions on how and where to enter.

Katee and Tricia Helfer recorded a promotional video for Acting Outlaws, the charity company they've started. Their current mission is in conjunction with the Gulf Restoration Network to bring about continued awareness and to raise funds for the Gulf region -- specifically those impacted in Louisiana and New Orleans by the BP Oil Spill.
In addition to her forthcoming appearance on The Big Bang Theory, Katee is also appearing on another CBS hit, CSI -- the long running series which currently stars Marg Helgenberger and Laurence Fishburne.
Katee will be portraying Detective Frankie Reed, a character that apparently has a lack of sensitivity and a lot of attitude.

Katee made her first guest appearance on the show last year, drinking wine with Wolowitz in his bathtub.
07.29.10 - Katee Unveils Her Comic Book Character, Versus!
SuperHeroHype.com has an exclusive look at the new comic book character from Katee Sackhoff and Sxv'Leithan Essex titled, VERSUS.
The character was supposed to make her debut at this year's San Diego Comic Con, but unfortunately that didn't happen. Katee explains why:
"Things got really crazy for the both of us with a few other projects which unfortunately took time away from Versus," says Sackhoff. "We wanted Versus to have an impact at Comic-Con and had some very visual ideas to make her seen but time became the enemy and we don't want her to get lost in the mix."
The character is derived from a concept thought up by Katee and Sxv'Leithan (aka Sxully). Sxully goes into more detail;
"Versus has a hidden bunker where she has the best militant minds as captives to make her weapons, gather the intel she needs, and make her wardrobe. All of them have different types of Stockholm Syndrome which makes for interesting character dynamics: one thinks she's insane, one is extremely sexually infatuated, another thinks she's a God."
We'll have updates on the comic as they come in!

Entertainment Weekly interviewed the show's Executive Producer, David X. Cohen, who had plenty to say about the show including the guest appearance by Katee.
Here's what he had to say:
Katee Sackhoff is playing a visitor to Comic-Con who has a fetish for aliens. She threw herself into the role in an impressive fashion.
We'll keep you updated on when the episode with Katee will air. Read the full article at Entertainment Weekly's website here.
05.19.10 - Portland Tribune Interviews Katee
There's something to be said about receiving accolades and recognition from where you grew up, and Katee has consistently received both from her home state of Oregon.
The Portland Tribune just posted a great interview with Katee discussing her role on 24 and Battlestar Galactica and how lying to family, friends and fans has become a bit of a pastime for her.
She also discusses action scenes, growing up in Portland and thoughts on being a celebrity.
Tribune: How relevant still are the themes of fighting terrorism in "24"? Especially given that there was just an attempted terrorist attack at Times Square when "24" takes place in New York City this year?
Sackhoff: Sadly, there will always be people in the world that want to do bad things, or believe that what they're doing is justified. It's a sad reality in today's world. I was in New York during 9/11 and it was the first time in my life that I truly felt terrified and unsafe and scared.
Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello spoke with Katee about her reasoning for turning down a role on the hit HBO series, True Blood, and opting instead to go with the ABC crime drama, Boston's Finest;
"I am a huge fan of True Blood. It's a phenomenal show and [exec producer] Alan Ball is a f-ing genius. But I wanted more security than one season of something, so I rolled the dice with [Boston's Finest].
This entire business is about rolling the dice and hoping you made the right decision." - Katee
Boston's Finest is currently being reviewed by the network and a final decision is pending on whether the series will be picked up or not for the fall season.
A recent comment about the process revealed that Boston's Finest had "came in stronger than expected".
We're all crossing our fingers as we wait for the final decision.
05.04.10 - Entertainment Weekly Interviews Katee About Dana Walsh
If you haven't seen last night's episode of 24, and you don't want to be spoiled about what happens, I suggest you skip this article right now.
Katee's character on 24, Dana Walsh, was shot in last night's episode by Jack Bauer (played by Kiefer Sutherland).
While not completely shocking (Dana has been a mole and aiding the terrorists throughout the season), Dana Walsh's death seemed a bit cold blooded, even for Jack Bauer.
Katee talks to Michael Ausiello for an exclusive Entertainment Weekly interview in which she talks about Dana's demise and fan's reactions towards her character;
EW: How was the whole 24 experience?
SACKHOFF: It was fantastic. Because of the way they shoot 24 you feel like you're never there. I kind of felt like I could go hang out at Coffee Bean with all the unemployed actors. Every time I'd get a paycheck I was like, "Oh, that's right. I have a job!" It was pretty easy compared to what I was used to. I've been so spoiled. I moved to L.A. when I was 17 and I constantly worked on television, so I've always been able to have, in a sense, a normal job where you go to work every day. And after Battlestar ended and [my NBC] pilot [Lost & Found] wasn't picked up I got completely disillusioned by the business. I had never done a pilot that hadn't been picked up, so I was like, "What?!" So I wanted to go back to something that felt safe and exciting and well-received, and 24 was a perfect fit. It's what I needed to get my footing and go tackle another pilot season.

05.03.10 - Katee's Movieline.com Interview
Today (May 3rd, 2010) Movieline.com posted a really interesting interview with Katee in which she discusses some of the most recent events her character is going through on 24 including being waterboarded (tortured).
She also discusses Boston's Finest and how she looks at her job in Hollywood as a whole.
The interview is one of the better ones I've seen in recent months. Here's a sample:
Movieline.com: Your character got waterboarded in last week's episode. What was your reaction when you got that script?
Katee: Well, when I first read it, I thought, "It's about time they do something to this poor girl." [Laughs] I was excited to do it because I've never been waterboarded, and I thought it would really be kind of fun. We tried to do it with a tube in my mouth, which just made it completely difficult, so I was like, "You guys are just gonna have to waterboard me." They were like, "Are you sure youâ€™re OK?" and I was like, "Oh yeah. Just waterboard me."
Movieline.com: Katee! Who wants to be waterboarded?
Katee: It's pretty crazy. Like, [the scene] was just basically me holding my breath. It was pretty intense. There was one time where I actually breathed in and I thought I was gonna die. I mean, it hurt so much, because your lungs just take in tons of water immediately. For some reason with that towel [over the face] being soaking wet, your lungs suck in water. It's crazy.
I'm a bit insane when it comes to doing my own stunts and getting down and dirty. It's fun, you know? It's things I wouldn't normally do in my real life, so when I go to work and get to beat people up and shoot guns and get waterboarded, those are things I find completely interesting.
04.26.10 - Katee and Tricia Helfer: Dangerous Curves
Black Book Mag has posted an article today featuring Katee and Tricia in which they discuss riding their motorcycles.
For Tricia Helfer, a model, actress on Battlestar Galactica and owner of a Harley Dyna, riding is the one place she finds some solitude from the ever-present handlers in her business.
It's the only time "other than when a director yells, 'Action' there isn't anyone telling me what to do."
Katee Sackhoff, Tricia's co-star, good friend and Harley Fatboy rider, it's less of an escape and more of a way "to live your life instead of watching it pass you by."
Yes, the rumors that have been circulating for a couple of months now are finally confirmed. The critically acclaimed, 24 comes to an end this season.
Kiefer Sutherland gave his thoughts on the ending of the Fox series;
"This has been the role of a lifetime, and I will never be able to fully express my appreciation to everyone who made it possible. While the end of the series is bittersweet, we always wanted 24 to finish on a high note, so the decision to make the eighth season our last was one we all agreed upon. This feels like the culmination of all our efforts from the writers to the actors to our fantastic crew and everyone at Fox. Looking ahead to the future, Howard Gordon and I are excited about the opportunity to create the feature film version of 24. But when all is said and done, it is the loyal worldwide fan base that made it possible for me to have the experience of playing the role of Jack Bauer, and for that I am eternally grateful."
The Hollywood Reporter states; 'As the weeks tick down to the show's final hour, Gordon promises a strong finish coupled with the current New York-based storyline taking a dark and creatively risky turn for the final episodes.'
Tune in Monday, March 29 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) for the next all-new installment of 24 and Monday, April 5 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) for a special two-hour episode.
03.08.10 - Interview with 411Mania
411Mania's Al Norton got to talk extensively to Katee about her various projects and of course, 24.
Al Norton: Was doing a comic book on your to-do list?
Katee Sackhoff: It was on my to-do list. I have a list of things I want to do, especially since I'm hitting my 30's.
Al Norton: When you hit a certain age it goes from being your to-do list to being your bucket list.
Katee Sackhoff: It's true. I'm calling this my third life crisis.
Al Norton: What are some of the other things on the list?
Katee Sackhoff: I want to go to Viet-Nam with my Father, that's on the list. I want to go dive in a shark cage. I want to go on an elephant safari in Botswana.
Al Norton: I'm glad the first one you mentioned might make you some money so you can afford to pay for the rest of them.
Katee Sackhoff: I know. Tricia Helfer and I are in pre-production right now on a documentary web series we are producing that we've called, "The Untitled Tricia-Katee Documentary Trek." We're going to drive cross country on our motorcycles. It's inspired by the Van Buren sisters, who were two socialite sisters in 1916 who, to relieve the burden from men serving in World War 1, volunteered to be motorcycle mail carriers, which at the time was a job men had to do on top of their other duties. They were denied and the Army stated women didn't have the strength or stamina to ride motorcycles, so these two socialite sisters got on 1916 Indian motorcycles and drove cross country to prove that women could do it. They drove the first two wheeled vehicle to get to the top of Pike's Peak in Colorado, they were arrested in Utah for wearing men's clothing; they were pretty amazing. They got to San Francisco they day they said they would get there, which in the mail delivery business is pretty important, and this took months. This was 1916 and even today the documentary is going to take us 25 days. They reapplied after they finished the journey and were denied again.
Because the sisters were trying to help the military, we decided we would raise money for the military with our ride. We decided we should give back. We're kicking around doing a simultaneous on-line auction.
Al Norton: You mentioned this was for the web but if someone came along and said, "hey, we want to put this on the air" I assume you'd be interested.
Katee Sackhoff: Of course. It's something we're kicking around.
02.21.10 - Katee Lands Leading Role in New ABC Crime Drama!
The Hollywood Reporter (one of many websites featuring the news) has reported that our own Katee has landed a leading role in a new ABC drama just in time for pilot season.
You all may remember last year that Katee's pilot, Lost & Found (co-starring Brian Cox) was passed over by NBC last fall which led her to her current role of Dana Walsh on Fox's 24.
It seems that given a number of options she went with this one:
The crime drama centers on a beautiful female detective (Sackhoff) who teams with a disgraced ex-cop to solve crimes and untangle the conspiracy that sent him underground.
The show is helmed by Richard Hatem (The Dead Zone, Mothman Prophecies) and so far a title has not been announced for the project.
You can read the entire article at The Hollywood Reporter's website.
02.16.10 - Chicago Now Interview
Katee is featured in Chicago Now in a lengthy Q & A talking about 24, her upcoming comic book, "Versus", her documentary with Tricia Helfer and a lot more!
Check out this excerpt from the article:
One thing I do want to ask you about going from Starbuck to "24" and other post-"Galactica" projects comes from some comments I've read on Twitter and from other TV writers. They're almost telling you what you should do with your career.
I know, right? Which ones are you referring to? I've seen a lot. I've stopped looking actually.
I was just wondering your reaction to those types of comments. That you shouldn't be playing "just " an analyst on "24" after playing Starbuck. But they don't know who Dana is; maybe you're the ringleader.
Right. For anyone to think that I don't have an ulterior motive with everything that I do in this business and I don't know exactly where my career is going in my mind, that's kind of a juvenile thought.
I am very calculated in what I do with my job to try and navigate this business and form the career that's going to provide me with the stability and the longevity to have a job when I'm 60.
The New York Post has an interview as well as a Q & A they did with Katee recently. She talks about doing stand-up comedy for the first time, some 24 secrets about her character, Dana Walsh, why she got hooked on Star Trek at an early age and tons more!
NYP: Some fans of those sci-fi shows are known to be lunatics.
Sackhoff: [Laughs] Well I'm not going to call them that. They helped launch my career and put food on my table. The ones I've met at conventions like Comic-Con I would describe as . . . very passionate.
The funny thing is most of them were expecting to meet a butch based on the attitude of my character [Captain Kara "Starbuck" Thrace] from 'Battlestar.'
When people saw me in a dress and heels they were confused. It was like a disappointing blow for them.
I'd be rich if I got a dime for all the times I heard "Oh My God! You're pretty."
PW: I remember reading nearly every actress on "24" say that picking a comfortable outfit is key to being on this show. How was yours?
Katee: Well, you see Dana in the first episode and she's got these nicely toned arms and this cute little outfit and I think the writers thought I looked too buff, like, "No, no, this doesn't work. She's too cute. We gotta get a jacket on her." Then they were like, "Why is she in a dress?" So I got some jeans.
I think everything that happens to Dana is because they want her in different clothing.
The Boston Herald ran an interview with Katee today discussing the usual stuff. Always worth a read though:
"My goal is to beat Jean Smart (season five's Martha Logan) on how many times she changed wardrobes," Sackhoff said and then laughed in a recent telephone interview from Los Angeles.
The former star of "Battlestar Galactica" joined the cast of the Fox drama as CTU tech expert Dana Walsh.
Except for confirming that Dana will change her clothes, Sackhoff was tight-lipped on what was in store for her character.
"Dana is very intelligent, very capable, very nice," Sackhoff said. "She sees the best in everyone. She's got a little bit of a past, but who doesn't? We all did things in our teens that we wish we could take back. Her past is definitely not all that it seems to be. That's about all I can say. I would suggest, as a viewer, hang on, nothing is what it seems."
Katee did an exclusive interview with BuzzSugar.com's Becky Kirsch for a great Q & A that just came out recently.
She discusses everything from 24 to Avatar to BSG to being in a sitcom!
Check out a piece of the interview here:
On landing her new part:
I was excited. When it was presented to me, I had another offer to do a TV show at the same time. As a fan of 24, I was so curious. I dug a little deeper and talked to the producers about it, and obviously I had auditioned for it.
Ultimately it was such a great move for me, creatively and career-wise. I just kind of jumped at it, it was fantastic. And I continue to be excited about it, it's great.
On BSG's rabid fan base:
I love the fans. I owe Battlestar and SyFy channel so much that the only reason I would be sick of it is if I didn't have something to look forward to right now.
Because I do, I get to look back on it fondly instead of with resentment.
It's great. I love the show, I love the fans. It's phenomenal. I have no desire to go back -- it was two years ago, and I've definitely left it behind me, and I've moved on to hopefully just as exciting work.
There's a really great interview on Chicago Now's website in which Katee talks (of course) about Dana Walsh and 24, but also discusses her joint-project with friend and former BSG cast-mate, Tricia Helfer, her new comic book and much more.
Here's a small part of the entire interview:
CN: Tell me about this doc with Tricia.
I can. I has to do with motorcycles. We're doing a documentary that's inspired by the Van Buren sisters--Adeline and Augusta Van Buren. They were the first women to ride cross-country on motorcycles in 1916. So we were inspired by them to find out what it means to be a women. We're going to ride cross-country and do a Ewan McGregor.
CN: "Long Way Down" and "Long Way Round" were great. That's cool and a great story.
It's pretty amazing. Yeah, they set out to prove that women could be motorcycle mail couriers in World War I. They were told that women weren't strong enough and didn't have the stamina for the job.
CN: And they were proven wrong.
Well, that's the sad thing about the story. I believe that the government and all the nay-sayers were proven wrong, but it didn't change anything.
CN: One thing I do want to ask you about going from Starbuck to "24" and other post-"Galactica" projects comes from some comments I've read on Twitter and from other TV writers. They're almost telling you what you should do with your career.
I know, right? Which ones are you referring to? I've seen a lot. I've stopped looking actually.
CN: I was just wondering your reaction to those types of comments. That you shouldn't be playing "just " an analyst on "24" after playing Starbuck. But they don't know who Dana is; maybe you're the ringleader.
Right. For anyone to think that I don't have an ulterior motive with everything that I do in this business and I don't know exactly where my career is going in my mind, that's kind of a juvenile thought.
I am very calculated in what I do with my job to try and navigate this business and form the career that's going to provide me with the stability and the longevity to have a job when I'm 60.
Or 70. Everything I do has a reason for it. Sometimes its just I want to have fun. But there's a reason for everything I do. You know what? Sometimes, especially right now in this economy, it's just nice to have a job.

12.17.09 - Interview with IGN
IGN's Eric Goldman took some time to talk to Katee on the CTU set of 24 about Dana Walsh, BSG and Cylon secrets...
Katee: I went from a show that's clouded in this secrecy of who the Cylons are and blah blah blah blah blah and then I come to a show where I'm told right before I come out here, "You can't tell them anything. You do know that, right?" So it's very similar.
I think that because 24 airs so quickly, in that episodes come out so fast, that you kind of have to keep everything very secret because there are so many twists and turns that if I were to sit here and say some random thing, if it was a Starbuck thing, like, "I die in an episode" or something, it could potentially ruin the entire season. So it's one of those things where you just kind of have to keep your mouth shut, which I got accustomed to on Battlestar.
Q: So are you a mole?
Katee: I'm a Cylon.
Katee also talks about Starbuck and the possibility of another BSG movie with Starbuck included;
There's been talk of doing another Plan-esque movie.
I didn't do The Plan not because I didn't want to be in it. There was the option for me to be in it but we finished shooting and I was so exhausted and really sick, so I felt like it was better for me to not do it.
Maybe Starbuck would have gotten some sort of closure had I done that. I kind of like the way how it's been so vague.
Every person I talk to has a different idea of what happened to Starbuck. I have my own. I'm sure it's completely different from what the writers had in mind but it's really nice to kind of allow her to just have people have their own opinion as far as what happened to her and who she was, because I have my own. I like it. I like where she went.
Whenever I tell people, they're like, "That's not what happened." Okay, whatever!

Best-known for her ass-kicking, gender-bending role of Starbuck on the new Battlestar Galactica, Katee Sackhoff is perhaps not the first person you'd expect to be baking a cake on her time off.
"It's my boyfriend's birthday," she confides, explaining her plans for after our shoot, "he's a big fan of carrot cake, and I'm a big fan of baking... and eating it, so that's what I'm doing today!"

11.24.09 - The Big Bang Theory's Season-High Viewership!
The Big Bang Theory had the series' highest viewed episode this past Monday when Katee Sackhoff showed up as Howard Wolowitz' conscience of sorts during a bathtub fantasy scene in which the two were drinking champagne.
Rumors persist that the creators have talked about bringing Katee back in the future as Wolowitz' "Head Six" (a reference to Battlestar Galactica in which the character Baltar was guided by a Number Six Cylon that only he could see). After this week's numbers that may just become a reality.
14.2 million viewers tuned in to watch the episode as Katee portrayed a Wolowitz-fantasized version of herself.
11.20.09 - Katee on Access Hollywood.
Katee is getting the star treatment this weekend as Access Hollywood is featuring 3 different pieces on our girl including an exclusive interview airing Saturday the 21st during 4pm-5pm on KNBC LA and Monday the 23rd on the east coast from 2:30am-3:30am on WNBC in New York.
There is a current article regarding Katee's guest appearance on The Big Bang Theory this coming Monday in which Katee reveals what she was wearing in the tub:
Apparently she and Simon both sat indian style inside the tub while they were filming and Katee kept squeezing her toe to stop herself from laughing.
After the cameras stopped rolling Simon joked, "that wasn't your toe you were grabbing."
Katee's episode airs 11/23 at 9:30 PM on CBS. Watch Access Hollywood's weekend show for an exclusive preview and interview with Katee.
In a recent interview with SciFiWire, Katee discusses what she can about the upcoming season of 24 and ends with her own take on what happened to Starbuck at the end of Battlestar Galactica;
"I think she's with him. I think they're both dead, but I think she's with him.
That was a decision that we made, because I selfishly wanted her at peace, and the only way to do that was to have her with someone at the end, or to be with the person she wanted to be with.
I don't know. That's kind of where I think she is. She's with Michael Trucco playing pyramid in the sky somewhere."
USA Today has an article mentioning Katee's appearance on The Big Bang Theory.
The national newspaper reports;
"The story is about how Wolowitz has this wonderful woman in his life" after a double-date with Leonard and Penny and one of her co-workers from the Cheesecake Factory, (Chuck) Lorre says.
"But he can't recognize what's right in front of him because he's mesmerized by fantasies about women from sci-fi. The scene is his mental image of Katee, but she's telling him the truth, that he's missing out on real life."
Katee's appearance on The Big Bang Theory will be happening on the November 23rd episode. The show airs Mondays @ 9:30pm on CBS.
10.22.09 - Katee Goes Green
Katee was mentioned in an article on the Mother Nature Network website for their section entitled Ecollywood in which they discuss Hollywood Stars and what they're doing to help the environment and "go green".
Katee Sackhoff, whose mom raised her to recycle everything, is planning to build a new home "that will be completely green, from the bottom up."
Formerly the formidable Starbuck from Battlestar, Sackhoff joins the cast of 24 this season as computer analyst Dana Walsh, the sweet-natured fiance of fellow cast newcomer Freddie Prinze Jr. "It's a completely different character for me," said Sackhoff, who'll be in a "nice little blue dress" all season. "Doing stunts in skirts is not a fun thing," she's discovered.

9.18.09 - Katee at Entertainment Weekly's 2009 Pre-Emmy Party!
Last night Katee made an appearance at EW's 2009 Pre-Emmy Party. EW's Michael Ausiello talked with Katee about 24 in this exclusive video on EW's website.
Unfortunately Katee was not nominated for an Emmy for her amazing role as Kara "Starbuck" Thrace on Sci-Fi's Battlestar Galactica, however this glaring oversight has been noted on many websites and magazines including The Hollywood Reporter and Entertainment Weekly, both of which were shocked that Katee wasn't on this year's list.
Check out some photos from the event at Katee's Blog.
8.31.09 - Katee Nominated for Best Science Fiction Actress - 2009 Scream Awards!

8.22.09 - Katee at The Laugh Factory
This coming Thursday, August 27th, Katee will be appearing at The Laugh Factory in Hollywood, CA with fellow 24 actors, Mary Lynn Rajskub, John Boyd, Jean Smart, Glenn Morshower, James Morrison,
Roger Cross, Carlo Rota and Marisol Nichols.
Everyone is getting together for a night of comedy called "The Lie I Told". The theme of the evening is actors sharing stories of lies they told and what happened as a result of the lie.
This will be a great night of fun and comedy, so make sure you come down to the show.
Even better is the fact that money from the ticket sales benefit Children's Hospital.
Katee is currently shooting her parts for Season 8 of the hit show 24, which she of course became a cast member of earlier this year.
Her character, Dana Walsh, is a computer guru and data analyst so you might think that our girl will be stuck behind an LCD monitor all season, right?
Not the case. Apparently Katee will be getting out from behind the desk by episode 5 of Season 8 and will resume her butt-kicking prowess that we've come to know and love via her role as Kara Thrace on Battlestar Galactica.
Season 8 of 24 begins airing on January 19th of 2010 and will also feature BSG Alumni, Callum Keith Rennie in a guest starring role. You all might have remembered Katee spilling the beans about this on her Myspace and Facebook awhile back.
Katee has expressed how much she feels at home on the set of 24, and part of that has been not only due to a great production staff and awesome cast, but also due to one of her first episodes being directed by BSG director, Brad Turner.
24 Executive Producer, Brannon Braga commented recently regarding why they chose Katee for the new season;
"Obviously, we're all fans of Katee from Battlestar, and we were looking for this role of Dana Walsh -- that's the character's name -- a character who is really smart and part of a new CTU, that is what we're calling CTU 2.0.
It's the next generation of CTU. And we wanted to find someone who just had an inherent strength and intelligence, but was also very beautiful. That's a very hard role to cast, and Katee fit the bill."
8.03.09 - Battlestar Galactica Takes Home TCA Award for Top Program of the Year!
