Katee Sackhoff Cast as a CTU Agent in Season Eight of 24

Battlestar's Katee Sackhoff Signs on For 24

Battlestar Galactica fans, take note: Starbuck has a new job. Battlestar's Katee Sackhoff is joining the cast of 24 for the upcoming season.

Sackhoff will play an analyst in the new, shiny New York office of CTU. Her Dana Walsh is highly respected and down to earth, but she also "has a skeleton in her closet she's trying desperately to keep hidden." She's in a relationship with agent Davis Cole (to be played by Freddie Prinze Jr.), a former Marine with dreams of being like Jack Bauer.

Post-Battlestar, Sackhoff initially starred in an NBC pilot called Lost and Found from Law and Order's Dick Wolf, where she would have played a tough police officer. But NBC somewhat surprisingly passed on the pilot, leaving Sackhoff free to find other work. Apparently she took herself out of the running for the 24 role last week but changed her mind, threw her name back in, and ended up with the job.

After being a big fan of BSG...(and Katee's), while I only watch an episode or 2 of the 24, I don't see why she won't fit in. I think it's a good thing for Sackhoff. And 24 too, I suppose. I still miss BSG :(
