How bad was Katee Sackhoff’s CTU mole character on the eighth and final season of “24”? So bad that when I saw the season all over again to review it for the site, I literally punched myself in the face. Okay, maybe I didn’t really resort to physical violence on myself, but man, it was a close call! Fortunately, those long, bad days of playing a hapless computer geek who turned out to be a super killer Russian double agent (or something) are well behind Katee, and she’s now signed up to star in Shawn Pillar’s “Sexy Evil Genius”.
The plot? Not bad:
Genius centers on a group of strangers brought together in a downtown Los Angeles bar by their mutual ex-girlfriend (Sackhoff). The woman is mysterious about her intentions, but by the night’s end, revenge will be had, romance made and the wronged woman will have delivered on her reputation as the sexy evil genius at the center of all their lives.
The film is described as a “dark comedy”. Pillar will direct from a script by Scott Lew.
