This isn't for real... is it?

You've got to be kidding me...
It sounds like an old April Fool's joke, but reports indicate that socialite Paris Hilton will be offered the role of Mother Theresa in an upcoming film.
Indian filmmaker T. Rajeevnath wants the "House of Wax" star to play the late humanitarian in a movie biography he is planning.
Rajeevnath said he will arm himself with photos of Hilton that have been altered to make her look like the saintly nun, who died in 1997. The meeting is scheduled for the end of April.
"The pictures will be my strength when I speak to Paris," Rajeevnath told the French Press Agency. "She has expressed delight that I have shortlisted her to play the role. This will make our meeting easier."
The film, which would be Paris Hilton's first lead role, is scheduled to begin shooting early next year.

Talk about casting against type...
Someone should check this guy's supply of hallucinogens. They've gotta be good.
