Beauty Shop: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mena Suvari is joining the cast of MGM's Beauty Shop alongside Djimon Hounsou, Alicia Silverstone and Queen Latifah.

Honey's Bille Woodruff directs.

Suvari will play Joanne, an upper-crust opinionated socialite, in the Barbershop spinoff. The story revolves around a beauty shop run by Gina (Queen Latifah) where there's more interest in the talk than the haircuts. Silverstone plays the sole white staffer, while Hounsou plays the leading man.
