PARIS HILTON TO APPEAR AS HERSELF IN GUEST-STARRING ROLE ON NBC'S 'MY NAME IS EARL' IN THE ONE-HOUR SEASON RETURN ON APRIL 3
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."
Hilton recently wrapped production on the feature film "Repo: The Genetic Opera" for Lionsgate Entertainment.
Created and written by Emmy Award winner Greg Garcia ("Yes, Dear"), "My Name Is Earl" is executive-produced by Garcia, and Bobby Bowman ("Yes, Dear"). Amigos de Garcia and Twentieth Century Fox Television produce the series.
