Mena Suvari is making the switch from movies to TV, she's signed for a guest slot on EMMY-winning TV series Six Feet Under.

Suvari will play a student attending art school with regular character CLAIRE FISHER - played by LAUREN AMBROSE - in six episodes of the drama, the brainchild of Suvari's AMERICAN BEAUTY screenwriter Alan Ball.

OSCAR-winner Ball says, "I'm thrilled because Mena is an extraordinarily talented and extraordinary disciplined actress, and I just think she can do anything.

"In American Beauty, that was a very tough role, much tougher than it may seem like on the surface, and in the work I've seen her do since, I think she's got tremendous range."
