'Battlestar Galactica' Star Katee Sackhoff is One 'Sexy Evil Genius'
Many sci-fi fans have already been privy to the beauty of Katee Sackhoff as Starbuck on SyFy's Battlestar Galactica, but now Heat Vision reports she's going for the gold by becoming a Sexy Evil Genius. The dark comedy will be directed by Shawn Piller (the showrunner on ABC Family's "Greek") working from a script by Scott Lew. The story will follow a group of strangers brought together at a downtown Los Angeles bar by their mutual ex-girlfriend (Sackhoff). The woman is mysterious about her intentions, but by the night's end, revenge will be had, romance made and the wronged woman's deliciously diabolical plan will be complete.
Sounds like it has some potential, and with Sackhoff's beauty taking center stage, that's definitely a plus. As a point of interest, Scott Lew has become afflicted by ALS (or Lou Gehrig's disease) and as a quadriplegic and wheelchair-bound man, he cannot speak and writes by using an infrared dot on his forehead to point to letters and words on a monitor. While some writers seem to be turning in scripts just for the paycheck, Lew wrote via e-mail, "Writing is the only way I really get to express myself with complexity." I can't imagine being in that physical state, but at least he's able to keep some form of sanity by expressing himself through film. Interested?
