Would Katee Sackhoff make a good Typhoid Mary?

Here’s an interesting little tidbit: apparently Katee Sackhoff visited L.A. comics shop Golden Apple Comics a couple of weeks ago. The Golden Apple blog reports that “she proceeded to grab all the Typhoid Mary comics we had and has hopes to get a part for a Marvel movie.”

Sackhoff is best known as Starbuck from the Sci Fi Channel’s Battlestar Galactica reboot — but is she destined for a reboot of Marvel’s Daredevil? Rumors have been floating around that Fox is interested in another take on the property (as well as Fantastic Four) before the rights revert back to Marvel. A Daredevil movie that drew heavily from Ann Nocenti’s take on the character doesn’t sound like too bad of an idea to me (of course, I never thought the first Daredevil movie was as bad as most people seemed to think it was … Elektra, though, was probably worse).

MTV’s Splash Page runs down possible movies that could feature Typhoid Mary, noting that Daredevil is probably the most obvious, since that’s where the character debuted, but also mentions Deadpool and even Avengers as longshots.

So what do you think? Would Sackhoff make a good Typhoid Mary?



Like Graeme (Crackah) McMillan said on another site, she’d make an even better Ms. Marvel. She’d be a strong looking Ms. Marvel which would make more sense than having Megan Fox wearing a Blonde Wig.

Ms. Marvel? That’s ridiculous, I doubt Sackhoff could pull off an alcoholic, adrenaline-addicted jet pilot with a chip on her shoulder. No damn way.

Starbuck was written so inconsistently in the final season, she was practically schizophrenic. I think that makes it a good fit.

She was also, by far, the best part of the otherwise awful Bionic Woman reboot, in which she chewed scenery as a mentally troubled cyborg.

So, yeah, she’d do just fine as Mary Alice Walker.

I’d watch her read the phone book so my opinion might be a little biased. But I think she’d be great in a Marvel movie especially as a villain. As mentioned, she stole the show in the Bionic Woman and if you’ve seen Frequency 2 you know she has range. I just hope that if it IS a Daredevil remake and Fox is involved they don’t pull a Fox and frell it all up like they do every other great property they get their hands on.
