Legendary Actress to Play God on NBC's 'Save Me' LA Times

NBC is bringing in a heavy hitter for the final episode of "Save Me." The Los Angeles Times' Show Tracker reports that the show will end its run with an appearance by actress Betty White as God.

The series, which stars Anne Heche as a woman who can communicate with God after nearly choking on a sandwich, will end this Thursday, June 13, with an episode called "Holier Than Thou." Heche's character will finally meet God, who will appear in the guise of White because, as the show explains, people always feel comfortable with her.

The role means that White will portray the divinity at a more advanced age than George Burns, who played God when he was 81 in the Carl Reiner film "Oh, God!" White is 91.
