Aca-scuse me? Katee Sackhoff was cut from 'Pitch Perfect'

In trivia that’s equal parts aca-awesome and aca-heartbreaking, Katee Sackhoff revealed she had a small part in last year’s pitch-slapping film Pitch Perfect, but her role ended up on the cutting room floor.

The star of LongmireBattlestar Galactica, and this week’s Riddick said she won the cameo while visiting her fiancé Scott Niemeyer, a producer for the film, on set. The film needed someone to play a DJ (no, not a Deaf Jew), and Sackhoff volunteered.

“The guy that Beca was dating was dating the DJ, and they said, ‘Katee, wouldn’t it be really funny if you threw a brown wig on and played the DJ?’ And I was like, ‘Perfect, I’ll do it,'” she tells Collider. “So I was actually in the movie, but not in the movie.”

Though Sackhoff didn’t appear in the final cut, Pitch Perfect producer and co-star Elizabeth Banks gave fans a glimpse of Sackhoff in her DJ wig when she posted a photo from set in 2011:

'Longmire' star Katee Sackhoff takes the EW Pop Culture Personality Test -- VIDEO


This season on A&E’s Longmire, which returns tonight at 10 p.m. ET, we’ll dive more into the private life of Deputy Vic Moretti (Katee Sackhoff) and her struggles with her husband (Michael Mosley) and her feelings for Sheriff Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor). Don’t ask Sackhoff, a veteran of the Battlestar Galactica shipper wars, which way she wants Vic to go in the end. “I always wanted Starbuck to end up with Anders [Michael Trucco], and I think I probably pushed it that direction, so there’s some fans that, like, hate me because they were like, ‘No, Apollo! We love Apollo!’ So dare I say,” Sackhoff explains. “But I think it would be really funny, at this point, to have to do a sex scene with Robert because I know his wife and his kid, and he knows my fiancé [film producer Scott Niemeyer]. It always gets more awkward the more you know someone. Like toward the end of [Battlestar] when I was doing scenes with Michael Trucco, and then I’d go out with his wife or something, she’d be like, ‘How is it making out with my husband all day?’ I’m like, ‘It’s so good. Thanks. Would you like to call Scott? I mean, if you really want to. It’s only fair.'”

Below, Sackhoff takes the EW Pop Culture Personality Test. If you can’t guess from that anecdote above, it’s one of our best yet. READ FULL STORY
