Paris Hilton to guest star in My Name Is Earl

Paris HiltonParis Hilton is set set to guest star in hit TV show My Name Is Earl -- as herself, it has been revealed.

The 27-year-old socialite -- whose film The Hottie and the Nottie bombed at the box office, taking a dire $9,000 in its opening weekend last month -- will star in the hour long episode titled "I Won't Die with a Little Help From My Friends," where she will portray herself in a dream sequence of Earl's (Jason Lee).

The episode airs April 3, the first post-strike show for the sitcom.

"When we wrote the role of 'Paris Hilton' in the script, we weren't exactly sure who to go with for the role," series creator Greg Garcia says. "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' next big-screen effort, Repo: The Genetic Opera opens April 25, but the hotel heiress is no stranger to the small screen -- having previously starred on The Simple Life and guested on American Dreams, The O.C., Veronica Mars and Las Vegas.
