Former BEVERLY HILLS, 90210 beauty Tori Spelling has asked her billionaire producer father AARON to lend his voice to her upcoming sitcom.

The 31-year-old actress will star in self-mocking comedy NOTORIOUS - loosely based on her turbulent life - for American TV network NBC, and she wants her dad to contribute to a Charlie's Angels pastiche.

She says, "I've been crucified in the press for so many years, that I was like, 'I'm just gonna embrace it all. Nothing's off limits.'

"No one could ever play my dad, and I didn't know if he wanted to make an acting appearance, so I thought, 'We'll do a kitschy little throwback to Charlie's Angels, where you hear him on the speakerphone, like the voice of God."

The pilot goes into production next month (MAR05).
