If there’s one thing Katee Sackhoff loves more than her upcoming role on ‘24,’ it’s getting to work with heartthrob Freddie Prinze Jr.
“I’m living out my Katee in high school fantasy,” she told Fancast about acting alongside Prinze at the DVD release party for ‘Family Guy’s’ ‘Something, Something, Something, Dark Side.’ “It’s fantastic.”
This season on ’24′ Sackhoff will play a computer analyst named Dana Walsh. Walsh is engaged to Cole Ortiz, a fellow agent played by Prinze. Oh, and one more thing — she’ll be Chloe O’Brian’s new boss.
“I love Freddie. He’s a phenomenal, phenomenal man,” Sackoff said about her fictional fiancée. “I’ve been very lucky in my career to have been surrounded by beautiful, loving people and he’s one of them.”
As for the other aspects of the new gig, the sci-fi dialogue she had to say on ‘Battlestar Galactica’ didn’t really prepare her transition to technobabble. Sackhoff told us, “The tech jargon is a hell of a lot harder to get out of your mouth! [Laughs] It’s a nightmare.”
