ROLE ON `ROSEANNE' HITS CLOSE TO HOME FOR ACTRESS

Laurie Metcalf says she's still got a lot to learn about her harried character on "Rose-anne," even after seven years with the show.

"I like to play a wide range of characters. The more they're unlike me, the better I like it," said Metcalf. "But Jackie is so close to my own personality that I still feel self-conscious playing her. She's someone I haven't solved."Metcalf is heading to New York while the sitcom is on summer hiatus.
