I just read that ~*~OMG SO HORRIFIC CASTING SPOILER~*~ in Supernatural that people were freaking out about recently, and here is what I have to say...

When it comes to overreactions, fandom is the first to accomplish it.Collapse )

Either way, fandom is crazy and insane and made of lulz. Just saying. This is the only spoiler I have actively sought out (mainly because someone posted about it without a cut and I was about to be pissy, but found it rather amusing than irritating). So NO MORE SPOILERS FROM NOW ON! PROMISE.

I don't care for Paris Hilton but if they cast her for a reason then I trust Kripke & Co. to use her properly. She did guest star in an episode of VMars playing essentially a version of herself and people made a big fuss over that and it turned out alright.

Dude, exactly. Everyone groaned about that and yet, afterward, people thought she did a pretty nice job considering.

It's just I don't think it's about the ratings though, even if it might attract more viewers Supernatural has risen pretty damn well in the ratings department since last season. I don't think they need help boasting it up more than it already has, especially with Misha Collins on board and all. This is just going to be a fun, little episode that will bring the funny. That's all it is to me, at least.

I guess it's because even on small scale she's not even a slighty credible actress. I've seen fruit that had better acting ability. I really can't stand her because she is so vapid but as others posted she'll probably play a vapid demon so it will be good for laughs. Plus I trust the show runners to do a great job.

It'll be more self-mocking of a role than anything, which I think is why I kinda like some of the roles she's done which essentially mock herself in form or another. You gotta appreciate celebrities that enjoy making fun of themselves and aren't too serious with what the media say about them. Being a "demonic creature" is something worthy of mocking, so why not go for that?

Seriously! After seeing her in Repo! was pleasantly surprised as well. She can do amazing things if people give her the material to work with and place their biases aside. I mean, I'm not fanatical about her but I do think she deserves a tiny bit more credit for some things like that role.

Yeah, I've read what Danneel had to say and I do wish she'd have a bit more class when doing it, but oh well. Not my call to make on her behalf.

Girl, you know I love you and all, but I just can't agree with you on this issue. When I heard that Paris Hilton was going to be a guest star on the show, I immediately thought, "What the hell is Kripke thinking?!" And after thinking about it, I still feel that way. I just think Paris Hilton needs to stay far away from my show. Haha!

While you have the right to your opinion, I really hope you'll at least considering giving Paris the benefit of the doubt on this. I trust in Kripke wouldn't place her in the role unless it was for a reason, and for the self-mocking purposes I think she'll be just fine.
