Carter said she may play the role of Dr. Julia Hoffman, a doctor who specializes in blood disorders.
"I think I'm going to do it," she said, "and I think it's because, well, I've never played an alcoholic psychiatrist!"
"I thought it was a sexy part he wanted me for, and I'm saying, 'Yeah, I can play the sexy witch,'" she said. "And he said, 'No, you've done that. You're going to play the psychiatrist who's an alcoholic!'"
"It's definitely a fun part, so we'll see," she added. "And it has a great cast."
