Paris Hilton Checks into 'My Name Is Earl'!
Review by: Sal
Add a guest appearance on "My Name Is Earl" to Paris Hilton's illustrious list of acting credits.
The star of such cinematic gems as "The Hottie and the Nottie" and "Bottoms Up" will have a cameo on the NBC comedy when it returns to the air next month. She'll be part of a dream sequence in which Earl (Jason Lee), who's unconscious, finds events and people in the outside world seeping into his head.
The hour-long episode, titled "I Won't Die with a Little Help from My Friends," marks the return of "My Name Is Earl" after the writers' strike. It's scheduled to air Thursday, April 3.
"When we wrote the role of 'Paris Hilton' in the script, we weren't exactly sure who to go with for the role," series creator Greg Garcia remarks. "But after an exhausting search we finally settled on a relatively unknown actress by the name of Paris Hilton. I can't wait to see what she does with the role, and I can't wait for America to discover her."
Though her film career is hardly anything to write home about -- four movies she's appeared in are ranked in IMDB's Bottom 100 of all time -- Hilton has had a little better luck on television. She starred in "The Simple Life" for several seasons and has done guest spots on "Veronica Mars," "The O.C." and "Las Vegas," among others.
