Good news for all you fans of Battlestar Galactica and 24, you can now have both of those great tastes together in one great show. What the heck am I talking about? Well, Katee Sackhoff, who, of course, played Starbuck on BSG, will be joining the cast of Fox’s 24 next season, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Apparently, negotiations have been ongoing for several weeks but are now finished with Sackhoff’s deal done. According to THR, Sackhoff will play CTU expert data analyst Dana Walsh who also has a secret past. She’s also involved with CTU agent Davis Cole (The recently cast Freddie Prinze Jr.) and you know on this show that never seems to go well.
In addition to Prinze, Jr., Sackhoff joins fellow new 24 cast members Jennifer Westfeldt, Mykelti Williamson, John Boyd and Chris Diamantopoulos for the Fox powerhouse’ 8th season. Looks like 24 is putting together quite a large ensemble for next season. Now that Starbuck is on boad the 24 train, who else do you think the show will surprise us with? Personally, I’m hoping for some Grace Park action — but I’m not holding my breath.
