Fuji TV series inspired by Paris Hilton

'Celebrity' will star teen idol Aya Ueto

TOKYO -- Japan's Fuji TV is preparing a romantic comedy series in which teen idol Aya Ueto will play a character said to be inspired by Paris Hilton, local media reported Monday.

In the loosely translated "Celebrity to Poor Man," Ueto will play Alice Hirata, the daughter of hotel owners who -- unlike Hilton in real life -- falls for a widower with three children, according to the Sankei Sports newspaper.

Ueto is famous in Japan for her role in the ultra-violent anime film "Azumi," a hit in Japan after its 2004 Sundance premiere.
