Kevin Costner as a Southerner. Keanu Reeves as an attorney. Katie Holmes as a print reporter. And now, Paris Hilton as Mother Teresa. I think we have a new winner for most audacious miscasting in film history:
An Indian movie director said he hopes to persuade Paris Hilton to play the role of Nobel laureate and prospective Catholic Saint, Mother Teresa, in an upcoming film.
"Her features resemble Mother Teresa," director T. Rajeevnath told AFP from the southwestern coastal state of Kerala.
The filmmaker said Hilton is on his shortlist after a computer-generated image showed a close facial match between the hotel heiress and the Albanian-born nun.
Coming soon: the Mother Teresa sex tape, featuring Colin Farrell as the pope!
