Battlestar Galactica's Katee Sackhoff recently revealed she's in talks with Disney/Marvel for... something. Is this the first inkling that we're getting a Katee Sackhoff-led Captain Marvel flick?

Riddick shows how NOT to resurrect a great antihero

There aren't too many characters like Richard B. Riddick nowadays. He's an old-fashioned sort of anti-hero, whose amoral brutality is tempered by a code of honor.

Karen Gillan and Katee Sackhoff teaming up for a movie about a haunted…

Soon enough, Karen Gillan's time on Doctor Who will be over. But it looks like she's not leaving genre fare behind, thank goodness. Gillan is starring in Occulus, a new horror movie from Absentia director Mike Flanagan. And Battlestar Galactica's Katee Sackhoff just joined the movie as a co-star. It sounds as though… » 9/21/12 5:00pm 9/21/12 5:00pm

First Batman: Year One Clip: "Gentlemen. You've eaten well. But your…

One of the greatest scenes in Frank Miller's graphic novel Batman: Year One is the dinner party that Batman crashes, in which he warns Gotham's rich and mighty that from this moment on, none of them is safe. Now you can watch that scene brought to life, in the first clip from the Batman: Year One direct-to-DVD… » 9/21/11 10:38am 9/21/11 10:38am

Starbuck's True Love Is Not Who You'd Expect

Katee Sackhoff knows who the final Cylon is on the bleak space-opera Battlestar Galactica — and she's not telling.
