Apparently Warner Bros. had an opportunity to bring Riddick star Katie Sackhoff on board as Wonder Woman in their recent TV series, but passed up on the offer.

Sackhoff - probably trying not to sound bitter about rejection - told TotalFilm that:

I'd love to play Wonder Woman. I remember auditioning for the Wonder Woman television show and being told that I wasn't the Wonder Woman type, but if I wanted to play the best friend, I could audition for that. And remember thinking to myself, 'You obviously haven't seen my work!' [laughs].

Sackhoff would've been an incredible Wonder Woman, no? Not one to be put off by being brushed-off, the Riddick thesp also revealed that she's desperate to play a comic book movie villain and harked back to the time she confessed her love for The Joker's squeeze, Harley Quinn:

I would love to do that. I'm obsessed with Jinx. I would love to play Harley Quinn. I just think it's amazing. I mean I think I might give away my firstborn to have an opportunity to play Harley Quinn... I love trying to understand the villain, and trying to understand the things they do and why they do them, and I've always found her and The Joker, you almost can't understand them.

In the interview, Sackhoff also revealed she'd do anything to be in ' highly-anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens even playing the part of an inanimate object:

Star Wars meant everything to me growing up... Star Wars was, I mean, it was the first time I remember seeing three movies that all kind of went together. It was just an amazing final understanding of what a trilogy was. If J.J. would listen, I would play a rock in the Star Wars movies.

Do you think she has a chance of nabbing a part in Star Wars? What about Harley Quinn? C'mon Hollywood - somebody give a role!
