Nerdist Podcast: Katee Sackhoff

The hilarious and lovely Katee Sackhoff hangs out with Chris and Jonah to talk about her time on Battlestar Galactica, being a bad-ass chick on a motorcycle, and her role in the upcoming movie Riddick, in theaters Friday, September 6th!

    I agree with Cody. The word delightful gets thrown around a lot by podcast hosts about their guests, but she was. She just fuckin was.

    Jonah was on fire, too.

  2. farleyk says:

    A huge bit of lore from “Unforgiven” was when Gene Hackman tells the “duck of death” author the story about “two-dicks” something-or-other. How it was purportedly because he had two guns, but it really was because he had a huge dick, etc. So if Eastwood movies are historically authentic, there’s that.

  3. SamClemensRIGL says:

    Fantastic interview. It was rather auspicious to mention Sackhoff’s ability to steal the show as she certainly did whenever she was on-screen in “Riddick”. Even without saying a word, she could convey with her face more than many actors can do with their entire bodies. To wit, she should challenge Martin Freeman with an Expression-off.

    All that aside, I wonder if anyone did a count of the number of times “dick” was said.

  4. @Clay_57 says:

    Honestly, I was totally going to pass on Riddick thinking it was just another retread of Pitch Black. And after listening to this podcast I saw it today in IMAX and I admit I was “kinda” wrong. :) Katee was awesome in it and her interview was great too. Hope she comes back even if she’s not promoting something.

  5. Cody says:

    This easily jumped into my top ten favorite episodes. She needs to be on again.

  6. LJ says:

    Oh gawd. Now I’m going to have to rewatch BSG. She’s hilarious!

  7. Carlos says:

    Have her on again or I will detonate the burrito.

  8. Josh says:

    awesome podcast. Jonah was on fire! Always great guests. Cant wait for the Harrison Ford podcast, C’mon Chris it cant be that bad?

  9. CafComics says:

    Massive crush now, my gosh.

  10. Nich Hustler says:

    I’m such an idiot I get all stoked when my country is mentioned even in passing. South African penguins for the win!

  11. Thomas says:

    So good for my ears.

  12. PDPDPD says:

    Holy shit is she ever funny. Awesome, after she delivered her hardass character on BSG so well, it never dawned on me that it wasn’t part of her personality. Wow!

    Bonus points for leaving Jonah speechless with that “9yo” punch.

    Fantastic podcast!

  13. Jon H. says:

    Brilliant!

    So glad I wasn’t driving while listening to this, lol.

  14. Rob S. says:

    Larry Flint had sex with a chicken. It was in that movie about him. Hypnosis is cool. You can’t do anything you don’t want. There are a few websites that you can DL an MP3.

  15. Beast! says:

    Sweet. Holy. FUCK.

    Entirely too much fun here lately.

  16. sterlingy says:

    I just wanna take Katee and put her in all of the Nerdist podcasts. Just all of them.

  17. Atticus says:

    @chris hardwick

    AH you recorded Katey Sagal?! Can’t wait!!! I love following her career from Married with Children, Futurama, 8 Simple Rules, L O S T, and Sons of Anarchy :)

    Also saw Tegan & Sara opening years ago for the Killers. Had never heard of them at the time but they are a good band.

    Keep bringing the goodness Big C

  18. KEITH NEFF says:

    They seemed to forget in their “dick” riff that in the original Pitch Black that Riddick introduces himself to the antique dealer as Richard Riddick.

  19. Erin says:

    This was a super fun podcast, and Katee should totally get to do her own romantic comedy. I always think the quirky best friend should be the star anyway! The genre needs her help!

  20. SeanJ says:

    I don’t usually comment here but I just had to say how much I enjoyed this episode. I didn’t want it to end. It seemed like everyone was on top of their game. I love the eps where the guest just fits in and everybody has fun.

    And if Katee just shows up as a co-host with another guest I am sure I won’t be the only one to seriously lose my shit.

  21. chris hardwick says:

    @Kord: AND we have a great ep with Katey Sagal going up Monday! Also we recorded Tegan & Sara yesterday who were pretty fantastic.

  22. JetpackBlues says:

    The character is Richard B. Riddick.

    But, for seriously, NO Dick Riddick jokes?

    “Dick and Riddick were trapped on a planet with a dog, Riddick chopped off Dick’s head” and… I don’t have a punchline, but really? Nothing?

    I AM NOT ENTERTAINED!

    :wink:

    Would it be wrong to go see RIDDICK wearing a Lord Marshal helmet? Is that like rooting for the wrong team or something?

  23. karlhungusjr says:

    that was a great episode

  24. Wildride says:

    So, you’re saying I should stop using, “But, Katee Sackhoff has cancer!” As a way to get out of things — Eventually?

  25. Kord says:

    Not that sex is relevant, but the female guests have been KILLING it lately. First Brie, then Neko Case, and now Katee.

  26. CJ says:

    Another great podcast (wow! Kattee Sackhoff is fucking funny! get that BSG cast back together and do a comedy series with them!) :-)

  27. Jack says:

    This podcast made me want to see this movie. She’s freaking awesome!

  28. Jake says:

    Oh man Chris, I’m such a hypochondriac that I can’t even listen to these conversations without having a mini anxiety attack. It’s rough.

  29. alanso says:

    Oh wow, I didn’t know who she was, haven’t watched BSG (not sorry, either..), have no interest in Riddick, but somehow, this was really fun to listen to! Could it be that trying new things can be a positive experience?

    I will say that actors are usually better than musicians at being interviewed/loosening up and having fun. Or maybe it’s just the type of musician that is on the podcast..

  30. Three toes of fury says:

    .
    woot…cant wait to check out this podcast, im sure i’ll like it a latte. im sure Katee will venti about issues while espressoing herself. it’ll be a gande time for everyone. Throw in a dash of funny which isnt a tall order. Maybe she’ll tell hollywood stories of betrayal..you know..a (dirk) benedict arnold situation. And the….

    oh you get the joke!

    Peace .n. Caffeine

  31. Axel says:

    In XXX, Vin had a faux tat of his D&D character’s name on his stomach.

    Dick jokes never get old, when a girl says them.

    Funnest podcast since the last time Captain Jack was on.

  32. zer0 says:

    BEST! PODCAST! EVER! I’m still laughing and about about to start it over so I can laugh some more!

  33. Axel says:

    My cousin Richard has always been called Rick, but he has a cousin named Richard they called Dicky when he was young. I ran into my cousin Rick and he said, you remember my cousin Rick. I got a very dirty look when I said, “Dicky”.

  34. Drewdizzle says:

    What a great podcast!! She’s super funny!!

  35. Esteben says:

    Thanks for putting it up early! Hilarious!

  36. T says:

    Whaaaaaa!!! So excited about Riddick! Great guest! Katee was totally awesome-possum-sauce and mega funny.

  37. Daevid says:

    Good glob, she is freaking hilarious.

  38. Chris, Vinn’s DnD character tattoo was one of the fake tattoo’s for xXx. His drow witch hunter is one his stomach or chest.

  39. Nichole says:

    What an absolute treat during my afternoon drudge! I <3 Katee!

  40. Maja says:

    Love this podcast! And I love Katee Sackhoff. She’s hilarious.

  41. Eddy says:

    I would’ve liked some more BSG talk. Still, great episode.

  42. Tom Steele says:

    Dammit, how can I spitefully listen to this if the first comment isnt a troll telling me to skip this one? Oh well, I enjoyed it anyway.

  43. amysrevenge says:

    That’s a couple of shows in a row where the guests, on their own, were WAAAY more hilarious than I was expecting. I love finding out that people are super cool. :)

  44. Christopher says:

    @ChrisHardwick

    DON’T WORRY CHRIS! I’ll phone Ken’s Artisan Bakery and make sure they stock up on ham and cheese croissants!

  45. M says:

    What’s the schedule of this podcast now? It used to be available MWF very early morning eastern time zone.

  46. Great to see Bitch Puddin’ on the podcast. :)

  47. Ryan says:

    Looks like there’s a mistake in the description, It’s Chris & Jonah, not Chris & Matt.

    I’m also really enjoying Katee, you’re having a good run of guests lately.

  48. ThisGuyRightHere says:

    You should call the podcast studio “The Nerdopticon”

    is jonah dead?
