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."
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.
