On the heels of the false Michael Jackson singing the words of Pope John Paul II story we have another story hopefully as false.
Malayalam director, T. Rajeevnath, who was searching for a suitable actress to play Mother Teresa in his film on the Nobel Peace laureate, has decided to ask American actress Paris Hilton to play the Saint.
According to sources, the director was impressed when he read a report that the hotel heiress had refused to pose nude in Playboy magazine and decided then to shortlist her. The movie will be mostly shot in West Bengal and several foreign countries.
Jeffrey Overstreet says it isn’t a joke though the part that makes me dubious was when they actually called her an actress. Now normally I don’t care about the personal lives of those who star in movies as a requirement for them to play a part. There was some talk lately on this subject about one of the actors in the movie End of the Spear (which I had hoped was a documentary of the end of Britney Spears career). But this is definitely a case of what were they thinking? Anti-type casting, though at least she won’t have to worry about being locked into this type of role.
