Dame Helen Mirren can add therapist to her list of unusual roles after starring in a U.S. TV comedy skit as basketball wildman Ron Artest's psychiatrist. The "Queen" star opened Tuesday night, June 22's "Lopez Tonight" show with the Los Angeles Lakers star on the couch and pretended to coach him and help him visualize a game scenario.

But the notorious sports star, known for his outbursts, tattoos and hairstyles, wasn't listening and dashed off, prompting the British actress to call after him, "Ron, don't tell anyone I'm your therapist!"

Helen Mirren is set to appear in a film, "Love Ranch", which will be released in limited U.S. theaters on June 30. In the drama, she portrays Grace Botempo, the madam of the real Mustang Ranch, a popular '70 whorehouse in Reno, Nevada.
