A girl walks into a comic book store. No, this isn’t the opening to a joke. It’s a news story.

Katee Sackhoff, best known as Starbuck on Battlestar Galactica, recently visited Golden Apple Comics here in Los Angeles where she bought a whole bunch of comics featuring Typhoid Mary, a one-time Daredevil villain. This, according to the Golden Apple blog, was by way of research for an upcoming Marvel movie in which she’s hoping to get cast.

The obvious thought here is that she’s up for a role in the Fox reboot of Daredevil. I do hope someone talks some sense into her, though – while her career hasn’t quite burst through the stratosphere, a role in a Fox superhero movie doesn’t do anybody any favors (except Hugh Jackman, whose entire career is predicated on a Fox superhero franchise).

Thanks to Edward for the scoop.
