McClanahan who played oversexed Blanche Devereaux on The Golden Girls guest stars on an episode of Law & Order tomorrow (Feb. 4) as a character tangled up in a murder scandal.
Working on the gritty legal drama has McClanahan yearning for a chance to portray a different character than her devoted fans are used to.
She wants to play a bag lady or murderess to prove that she can do much more than just play the coquette.
Says McClanahan: Ive played witches before, but I want to be a murderess next. That, or a woman with sleuthing skills.
Although she vies for more dramatic roles, McClanahan will always have a soft spot for sitcoms.
However, its going to take a doozie to top The Golden Girls.
She explains, I dont expect another comedy as good as The Golden Girls to come along while Im treading this Earth.
Law & Order airs Wednesdays on NBC.
