Paris Hilton + Todd Solondz = Indie Nightmare

imageLike the bimbo cheerleader who finds herself unwittingly sitting at the lunch table populated by Nietzsche-spouting vegan art geeks, Paris Hilton has joined the cast of the untitled follow-up to director Todd Solondz’s Happiness. Although the inclusion of America’s favorite write-in candidate in a casting line-up that includes Allison Janney, Ciarán Hinds, and Charlotte Rampling appears incongruous, Hilton’s apparent lack of acting prowess is what makes her ideal for the film. Solondz has forged a reputation with work that juxtaposes beauty with ugliness. So what better muse is there for such a filmmaker than an entitled, vacuous princess who’s managed to buck jail time and whose previous film credits feature such stunners as House of Wax?
