Typecasting

by Jackrabbit Slim

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM, India (AFP) - An Indian movie director said he hopes to persuade Paris Hilton to play the role of Nobel laureate and prospective Catholic Saint, Mother Teresa, in an upcoming film.


"Her features resemble Mother Teresa," director T. Rajeevnath told AFP from the southwestern coastal state of Kerala.

The filmmaker said Hilton is on his shortlist after a computer-generated image showed a close facial match between the hotel heiress and the Albanian-born nun.

Mother Teresa, who died in 1997, worked among the poor in the teeming slums of Kolkata, formerly Calcutta, with the Missionaries of Charity. She was beatified by Pope John Paul in 2003, a significant step on the road to sainthood in the Catholic church.

"A meeting with Paris Hilton is scheduled for the end of April," Rajeevnath said.

The 54-year-old director is well-known in India for his Malayalam-language films, including "Janani" (Mother) -- the story of seven nuns who care for an abandoned baby, which won a national award.

Hilton's prior movie experience includes appearing in a home-made sex video made by a former boyfriend that appeared on the Internet, and parts in several Hollywood B-films.

The blond socialite, who is often the focus of US celebrity gossip columns, also starred in the US reality television show "The Simple Life".

I thought this might work at first. But then I realized that Mother Teresa was actually born in Macedonia, not Albania. Now I can totally see Paris Hilton, Albanian. But Paris Hilton, the Macedonian? That's just silly.

Ick, Paris Hilton. You know, if we all just ignore her she will go away. It's the hollywood stray dog effect. Look how well it worked with Kato Kaelin!

She has no talent, a terrible personality, and she is ugly. The fact that she is a role model for young girls around the country sickens me to no end.

In fact, it makes me want to drive a Hummer and burn some styrofoam. Why should I bother trying to preserve the planet for future generations if this awful cunt is who they aspire to be?

Oh, I don't know. She kind of amuses me. I agree that she has no talent to speak of and isn't particularly attractive, but she's kind of like a fictional character come to life. And, judging by her porno tape, she's very good at giving blowjobs, which is something in her favor.

well, I guess giving good blowjobs counts as a talent. I was so wrong about her!
