Forget just being “hot” – Paris Hilton is about to become “Super.”
The celebutante will appear on the October 8 episode of The CW’s “Supernatural” – however, series creator Eric Kripke says the appearance is much more than a casting stunt.
“I don’t think we’re gassing up the motorcycle to jump the shark yet,” Kripke told Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello. “It’s a fun, irreverent episode about modern celebrity. [Fans] should withhold judgment until they see it.”
But who will Paris be playing? Herself, sort of.
“[She plays] a monster who takes the form of Paris Hilton,” he added.
And while the heiress was at the top of the wish list for the “Supernatural” writers as the guest star who could best mock the concept of celebrity status, Kripke and gang never thought Paris would go for it.
“We never expected in a million years that she would do it, but I spoke to her and she got the joke immediately and signed on quickly,” he revealed. “I give her a lot of credit for being a hell of a good sport. The fact that she was game to play the part speaks volumes about her sense of humor.”
Paris’ “Supernatural” guest spot airs Thursday, October 8 on The CW.
