So what's going to happen to the Hill's next season?

Kathy Najimy: Peggy becomes a realtor; it's hilarious. Tom Petty makes a lot more guest appearances, Chris Elliott is a guest - he's just the funniest man ever, Johnny Knoxville is a guest; we have so many good guests coming in, ZZ Top. Oh, here's a good one we just did - Peggy finds a woman who she finds she's more feminine than, cause you know Peggy has the big helmet hair and so she really doesn't feel that feminine. So she finally meets this woman and it turns out to be a drag queen that she's hanging out with; so that's really fun. And one that's really good - Hank becomes addicted to video games; that's a good one, that's a really good one.

I want to know when you and Brittany Murphy are going to sing a duet on the show?

Kathy Najimy: Oh, wouldn't that be great! Let's do that! Brittany's a dear friend of mine and is such a talented singer; she's great, and it's just mind blowing. I'm so proud of her; she's a great person and that was one of the greatest gifts of King of the Hill was her.

Do you guys go in the booth together?

Kathy Najimy: Yeah, as much as possible; not when one of us is away doing a film. But, I'd say it's 70% together.

What do you want to do in the future that you haven't done yet?

Kathy Najimy: Wow, that's a good Barbara Walters question. You know what I really love, and this seems like such a simple goal - I don't want to be on an hour drama, cause it's too much work and time, but I was on Chicago Hope for three episodes years ago and I loved it. I didn't have to commit to being there every day; when you're on it for three weeks, it's a lot of lines for a rich character - like if you're on all year, it's kind of watered down what you get to go through. I would love to do another one of those, another one of those like Commander in Chief or Grey's Anatomy, or some other hour-long guest; it's not terribly lofty but I'd love to do that.

So Kathy Najimy president?

Kathy Najimy: Kathy Najimy president or a drug dealer or affair haver or stealer; it's horrible and it'd be awesome!
