Want to be Paris Hilton's Next Co-Star?

10/14/2007 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris HiltonSorry, she's not auditioning for roles in the sequel to "1 Night in Paris" -- but Hilton's new horror/musical move, "Repo! The Genetic Opera" (actual title) could use a few warm bodies.

The film's director, Darren Lynn Bousman of "Saw" fame, posted a casting call on his MySpace page, saying they need about 200 extras for an opera scene. Paris will be on set -- and *brace yourselves* possibly singing -- with extras expected to perform the 8-hour day for no pay. Free lunch included. Oh yeah, and you gotta live near Toronto.

The film is a musical about organ financing after an epidemic of organ failures. Weird premise, but it's gotta at least be better than "House of Wax." Or not.

Paris is a good antidepressent for people. She is always smiling and stays busy.

TMZ and others you can say what you want but Paris is a good singer. Most people that hate, or make fun of her, are just jealous of the success and wealth that she has. I bet most people, including me, would trade places with her in a heartbeat. So grow up and quit playing elementary games because someone has a more successful and better life than you.

Aside from obviously capitalizing on Hilton’s spring-breakdown with the law and subsequent jail time (her tabloid reputation gave the film immediate recognition by reporters), we think the role of Heather Sweet in “Repo” went to Hilton for a few reasons:

1) We understand that -- according to the film’s producer and director during a recent interview -- Hilton had memorized portions of the script before arriving at the audition amidst a “lightening storm” of tabloid photographers. She also attended the try-out “in character” wearing a very sexy outfit, and constantly flirted with the director.
2) She has a decent voice.
3) Her role in this film (think “Saw” put to music) has been described as a “scalpel-wielding, opera-wannabe slut who constantly seeks attention and the limelight.” Not exactly the role a lot of established actresses/singers would line up for. It certainly came as no surprise when the director said upon casting Hilton: “Paris is this person.”

Could this casting be just another example of art imitating life? Count on it.

What are you that Stupid?    

MM errr first of all, believe me when I say I am not jealous of her and I would NOT trade places with her for all of the money in the world. Second, America doesn't want her either.

If she could sing it would be alright, I am a registered BMI artist in Nashville in R&B genre, what ever happened to her starting a label etc. As to Cnada, why she can not get a deal in US, could it be due to lack of talent and just the fact of having money is the reason.

Someone seriously needs to raise the question why a douchebag like Paris ends up making actual money, why a proven failure like Britney Spears still (!) earns 750k a month - AND provide an answer to the question why it is a smart idea to shove $$$$ up drug addicts, gang members and DUI felons to empower their sick minds ?!
Brit & co will end up in some shady trailer park in a Detroit suburb.

Here we go again with that tired old “jealousy” defense mechanism. Paris’ fans obviously have lower standards than her critics. Especially, after Hilton’s shallow, sleazy public behavior we have been forced to witness for years due to her constant use and manipulation of the media. It speaks volumes about a certain segment of our pop culture that believe a life of money and fame without substance is the only thing worth striving for.
