I was sorry to hear about your doggie passing.
It’s been the weirdest thing because he was 18 and I’ve been caring for an elderly dog now for about five years. It’s been a good portion of my life — the last few years — of caring for him and now that he’s gone.… I said to my fiancé yesterday, “I feel like my purpose in life is gone.” Like I don’t know what to do with myself, because I’ve been caring for him for so long that I’m just at a complete loss. I wander around the house, I watch TV all day. Normally, my life was by his medicine schedule.
Now everyone’s going to tell you have a baby.
It’s funny that you said have a baby because now I’m sitting here calling my fiancé going, “I think we should have a baby.” Right? Like that seems the best, you know, let’s fix one problem and just busy my life with a baby.
I love that you’re not just a philanthropic performer, but you also started a charity organization. Tell me about the impetus behind Acting Outlaws.
Acting Outlaws really started because Tricia [Helfer] and I really have always kind of questioned what to do with the soapbox we’re given as actors. She and I had wanted to kind of really marry our love of riding motorcycles with our sort of lifelong ethical [responsibility]. So we decided, well, let’s start a company and let’s make a habit out of doing this on a regular basis. The first reason we came up with was in response to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. My fiancé and her husband are both from New Orleans and we both have family ties to that region, and when the Gulf oil spill happened, it just seemed like something needed to be done. It was about seven months later and people had completely stopped talking about it, and…the problem was far from over. So we kind of decided this is where Acting Outlaws would come in; we come in and raise awareness when awareness stops. Our news cycle is so instantaneous now that by the time one thing happens, five minutes later something else happens and it is just as tragic…and our attention spans are so short that we forget. So we decided to do a motorcycle ride and raise awareness for that, and then year by year we keep doing different events to raise awareness for organizations or issues that we think need more attention.
A&E is putting Western drama Longmire out to pasture.
The cable network has opted to cancel the drama after three seasons, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
The drama starring Robert Taylor and Katee Sackhoff will not return for a fourth season on the network. Sources confirm to THR that the series — the No. 1 scripted show in A&E’s history — will be shopped to other networks.
“We would like to thank the phenomenal cast, crew and producers of Longmire, along with our partners at Warner Horizon, for their tireless work on three seasons of quality dramatic storytelling. We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved together,” A&E said in a statement.
This month’s season three finale averaged 3.7 million total viewers and a lackluster 0.6 in the all-important adults 18-49 demo, down 16 percent and 45 percent, respectively, from its season two finale.

We’ve been hearing rumors regarding a possible role for Katee Sackhoff at Marvel Studios for months and months now. Ever since it became clear that the company is getting serious about a female superhero movie, fans of the Battlestar Galactica actress have been vocal about the idea of her getting a part (the most popular suggestion being a movie about Captain Marvel a.k.a. Ms. Marvel). As much as geeks around the world might want it to happen, however, there have yet to be any real conversations between the studio and the star.
Vulture caught up with Sackhoff last night at the Kiehl’s Liferide 5th Anniversary Festival, and took the opportunity to ask her point blank if any of the connections rumored between her and Marvel Studios were actually real. While this is going to bum some people out, the actress admitted that while she has had the opportunity to spend time with Marvel co-founder Stan Lee, she has not yet sat down with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige or anyone else involved on the film side of things. Said Sackhoff,
“As of this moment, I have not sat down with anybody from Marvel for any role specifically. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that something with Marvel is completely off the table for the future.”
