Jane Kaczmarek Follows The Law, Drives The Speed Limit

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Jane Kaczmarek doesn’t plan on ever messing with the law.

The actress – who played Lois, the high-strung mom on Malcolm in the Middle – is dealing with a new cast of rule-breakers on the courtroom drama Raising the Bar.

Kaczmarek plays Trudy Kessler, a tough judge who rules with an iron fist, and the role is making her think twice about getting into legal trouble.

She says, “Being on the show and seeing how the judicial system works definitely makes me drive the speed limit. It’s scary.”

Kaczmarek says she has a newfound respect for lawyers and says, “They get a bad rap, but if you’re in trouble, you want the best lawyer you can get.”

Though playing Judge Trudy has given her a hard look at the law, Kaczmarek says it hasn’t given her a hard look fashion- wise.

She explains, “Instead of those horrible judge’s robes my character wears nice silk scarves. She’s kind of working it.”

Raising the Bar premieres September 1 on TNT.
