Nikita: Hollywood Funnyguy Is Going to Get His Ass Kicked by Maggie Q

Maggie Q, Mystery Man CW; Pacific Coast News

Maggie Q wants to whoop a certain Hollywood funnyguy's ass on her new television reboot of Nikita.

Even if this actor and Q have some action-packed history together, he's known way more for his comedy work than anything else. But no matter, because Q says she has the perfect role for her sweet-faced ol' pal.

Who's she longing for? Read on to find out...

"I just asked Justin Long if he would do something for the show and he said absolutely, 100 percent he would," Q tells us.

She said, "I actually have an idea for a character for him and I just presented it to the writers and they were like, 'Genius! We love it!' So we're writing it now and then we're going to send it to him."

As for unleashing some of her ass-kicking moves on Long, Q laughed, "I'd like to, but it'd be too believable."

Long says he's ready to take some punches because, well, he probably has no choice in the matter.

"I'd have to, right? I can't kick her ass," he told us Tuesday at the L.A. premiere of Conviction. "We've talked about it. Maggie's a dear friend of mine so it would be fun. I'd love to work with her again."

The two costarred alongside Bruce Willis in Live Free or Die Hard. Long will next be seen on the big screen in The Conspirator, a period drama directed by Robert Redford about the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
