My Name is Earl - Cast news - SPOILERS inside

"The always-hot Alyssa Milano joins the Earl babes this season for a multi-episode arc."

According to the picture it also looks like Mike Rappaport will be a convict (I find him kind of funny)

Nice on both counts. I could go for a nice Paul Rudd arc too.

Paris Hilton on 'My Name is Earl'
1 hour, 57 minutes ago

NEW YORK - NBC is pumping up the return of "My Name is Earl" with a guest shot by Paris Hilton.
Spoiler:
Hilton appears as herself in a dream sequence. Earl has been knocked unconscious and various things from his life and imagination are bleeding into his fevered mind.


Her appearance will come in the one-hour episode on April 3 that is the first new material following the writers strike settlement, NBC said.

"When we wrote the role of Paris Hilton in the script, we weren't exactly sure who to go with for the role," said Greg Garcia, the show's executive producer. "But after an exhausting search we finally settled on a relatively unknown actress by the name of Paris Hilton."

Hilton has just finished work on the movie "Repo: The Genetic Opera."

I can't speak for everyone but I need me more Paris Hilton!

But seriously, I don't hate her enough to not watch the episode but hopefully she's only in this one ep. and they don't make her a regular.

Unlike Lionel's daughter, who I would be happier never seeing again, I think there may be hope for Hilton. If she's light enough on her feet and really pulls this off well, it could be a pleasant surprise.

'Eh. Hope it's only this episode. Unfortunately Earl's hour long episodes usually aren't that great.

No, there isn't.
No, she won't be.
No, she cannot.
No, it won't.

The only way they could make this watchable is if Hilton gets eviscerated by a chainsaw to the face - I don't see why not, it is a dream sequence after all.

If the Veronica Mars episode "Credit where Credit's Due" is any indication, this episode of MNIE will end up being my least favorite of the series, just like the VM episode was.

She's like that hot girlfriend who you couldn't get enough of at first and now she's knocking at your door at 3 AM while you pull the pillow over your head.

It works better if you hold the pillow over her head.

I just watched season 1 and 2 of VM last month and am 1/4 of the way through season 3 right now and I couldn't even tell you what her episode was about. That's how memorable she was.

When I first saw that episode of VM w/ Hilton, I didn't even know who Paris Hilton was, so I didn't even notice. But wasn't she playing some dumb **** who gets her comeuppance? I don't really see a problem with casting her in a role like that.

Maybe it's just me, but I've never found her even remotely attractive. Not even just Ok. Neither from the neck up nor the neck down. There's not one single attribute of her that I find appealing. In fact, I find her quite ugly. If it wasn't for the name and the money that goes with it, she wouldn't have even had 15 seconds of fame.

Or maybe I'm just getting old.
