Does Not Compute: Hilton + Solondz
The Hollywood Reporter claims that this guy is Paris Hilton's new BFF. Ok. Not Exactly. But What the hell?.
Indie-filmmaker Todd Solondz, responsible for 90's cult classic "Welcome to the Dollhouse" and the remarkably uncomfortable (and if i say it, you know it's true) "Happiness" has recruited the wooden socialite for his next, as yet untitled, project. The film, according to imdb is a semi-sequel to "Happiness" and has an ensemble cast of quirky characters. Hilton will star alongside Allison Janney, Paul Reubens, Ally Sheedy, Faye Dunaway, Charlotte Rampling, and Shirley Henderson (That's Moaning Myrtle, for all you HP folks).
This is the part where you take this in, and your head explodes. It's so crazy, it just might work. But, I mean, why is it happening? Has anyone else noticed that Paris seems to be making slow and calculated moves towards the darkside? Are we one day going to wake up and collectively respect her? In the future, will we look back and actually find that Paris really is some sort of Bardot or Monroe or Birkin? The answer is...?
