Starbuck clocking in for 24

It's looking like the network battle for Katee Sackhoff has finally been won. The sought-after Sackhoff broke out as a television star on Sci-Fi Channel's Battlestar Galactica as Starbuck, making her a hot commodity among networks seeking a new female lead. With BSG D-O-N-E, it's time Sackhoff found a new job.

Sackhoff will now call Fox home, according to EW.com, as the actress has reportedly signed on as a regular on 24 [UPDATE--Fox has made it official!]. She'll play a CTU data analyst named Dana Walsh who has some secrets she's hiding. Dana will also be romantically involved with Davis Cole, played by the recently cast Freddie Prinze, Jr.

Before Battlestar Galactica ended, Sackhoff was courted by NBC and appeared on the short-lived Bionic Woman. After that she did a stint on FX's Nip/Tuck and was pegged as the lead on NBC's Lost & Found, but the legal drama pilot wasn't picked up.

Is 24 a good fit for Katee? Where else would you like to see her?

Sackhoff is a great fit for 24, hopefully the 8 episodes is in the last eight episodes so she will be returning for more seasons. Don't know about Prinze though.

I think this is a risky move for her. I thought she would hold out for a leading role. 24 is a group effort and only has one lead. Plus 24 could easily jump the shark next season. Last season was great if not with a lack luster ending. Big changes are going to happen next season which may or may not work.

come on, can't the writers think of anything more interesting than the same old "analyst with a secret agenda in a relationship with an agent", didn't they already do that in season 7 ??

The guys at 24 were asleep at the wheel, they should have hired Jodi Lyn O'Keefe "Gretchen" from Prison Break. The minute she came on the show, I told my hubby now she's 24 material, a perfect terrorist, or a partner with Jack. Hopefully she shows up on 24 sometime, she's awesome.

Ok, so she's found work elsewhere. Don't really care, I'm more interested on where Jamie Bamber will be next.
