In an interview with Esquire, Katee Sackhoff revealed that she wants to play Harley Quinn in a future Batman movie. Here are highlights:
On her naked gunfight in Longmire: "No, no. I don't think it's the finale. It's coming. It's definitely... There's definitely me naked with a gun. The rest of it was pretty tongue-in-cheek, but it was definitely me and a gun, naked."
On how hard being in the third Riddick film was: "Not as hard as it was being really the only woman on set. I joke about how I felt a lot of pressure for this role because it's not like someone can walk away from it and say, "The movie was great, but the girl sucked!" and people will ask "Which one?" [Laughs] I am the one they're talking about. It's one of those things where the estrogen quota is resting on my shoulders and I think that's where the pressure came in. I wanted to give her this strength, but also make her interesting and sexy. I wanted people to feel drawn to her and understand her, but also be kind of confused by her. So there was just a lot there that I was trying to accomplish."
On which female comic character she'd want to play: "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."
