Admittedly my friends are nerds. Not just the math-and-spelling-bee-champion type nerds with whom I once shared a classroom back on the lower West Side of Manhattan, but nerds nonetheless. Needless to say, they are all huge fans of such shows like Firefly or Battlestar Galactica, the latter of which Katee Sackhoff starred in. And though the actress has played a prominent doctor on Nip/Tuck and voiced quite a few different characters on Robot Chicken, she is still best known-- and perhaps will always be known-- as Starbuck.
Why My Friends Are Talking About Her: Rumors spread like wildfire in this town, so when Sackhoff was spotted buying a lot of Marvel Comics featuring Typhoid Mary, the entertainment media pounced, assuming she was doing research for an upcoming Daredevil sequel. Why the thought that she is just a fan of the series/character never crossed anyone's mind is beyond me! Her fans are nerds, so who’s to say she isn’t one, too??
