Pamela Anderson Lee has rescued swimmers (Baywatch), run amok in leather (Barb Wire), and kicked bad-guy butt (V.I.P.). But now, as a guest voice on Matt Groening’s new animated Fox sitcom Futurama, she may be in for her wildest role yet: a conniving disembodied head in a jar. ”She was pleased that it was easier than her real job and that she didn’t have to sit in makeup for an hour,” says Futurama exec producer David Cohen, who’s already nabbed Lee for another episode. The best part? Says Cohen, ”No one can accuse us of casting her for her body.”
