Actress Mena Suvari has landed her first role since filing for divorce from concert promoter Simone Sestito - as a promiscuous chemist.
The American Beauty star has joined the cast of director Adam Shankman's untitled new TV project about a shy workaholic forced to face up to single life again after she is dumped by her fiance.
Suvari's character is a grown-up wild child who loves to party.
The actress split from Sestito in January (12), two years after the couple wed in Vatican City, Italy.
