BSG’s own Katee Sackhoff gets confirmed for Riddick 3!
Yes, its true, our redoubtable viper pilot from BSG will make an appearance in the third Riddick movie alongside Vin Diesel (who plays Riddick just so you know).
So far Katee’s post Galactica career has been alright. She was marvelous in Nip/Tuck and 24 though I didn’t really saw her as being alright in CSI. Up until this point the number of movies she has made has been limited and thus this deal can be seen as a bump even though this latest Riddick movie isn’t exactly ‘highly anticipated’.
It would seem Katee is never out of the news these days as she often does photo-ops with Tricia Helfer.
One strange angle to this story is the excuse it gives websites to put up pretty pics of Katee Sackhoff. Here is an index…
Yes it’s true, even a Star Trek website that normally never reports on anything else other than Star Trek has managed to get a picture of Katee on their homepage.

With all this Katee Sackhoff beauty I almost forgot that there is also an official synopsis for the movie.
Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick (Diesel) fights for survival against alien predators and becomes more powerful and dangerous than ever before. Soon bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy descend on Riddick only to find themselves pawns in his greater scheme for revenge. With his enemies right where he wants them, Riddick unleashes a vicious attack of vengeance before returning to his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction.
I wonder if that was the point of casting her, I hope not!
