This just in:
BURBANK March 4, 2008 Paris Hilton (”The Simple Life”) will guest-star as herself on NBC’s “My Name Is Earl” (Thursdays, 8-8:30 p.m. ET) in the one-hour episode marking the series’ original broadcast return scheduled for Thursday, April 3, 8-9:00 p.m. ET.
In the episode “I Won’t Die With A Little Help From My Friends,” Earl (Jason Lee) is unconscious and various things from real life are bleeding into his unconscious mind — which viewers will see. Paris Hilton is one of those things in Earl’s fevered mind.
Said Greg Garcia, the series’ creator and executive producer: “When we wrote the role of Paris Hilton in the script, we weren’t exactly sure who to go with for the role. 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.”
First of all, as a guy who has been in the position of having to criticize Paris Hilton while Paris Hilton’s PR staff is riding you (not here on the B&U, thank god!) props to Greg Garcia for the heavy sarcasm.
Second of all, Paris’ Shaman was in not one, but two episodes of My Name Is Earl in 2006-2007 as a character named Sparky.
This is either the second funniest coincidence of the day (the first being that we were making chicken butt jokes this morning before we found the Pete vid) or Actor/Shaman is slowly beginning to steer the Hilton career.
Not to mention that the press release we were e-mailed was issued from Burbank, a place the ShamMan is wholly not in support of.
Sometimes, this crap arranges itself in some ridiculous webs of coincidence and rumor.
