Mena Suvari, Kyle Howard

Mena Suvari and Kyle Howard have been cast in a yet-to-be-named NBC comedy pilot from Hilary Winston (Happy Endings, Community), about a woman who seeks revenge on her ex.

While the pilot's lead, Agnes, has not yet been cast, Suvari and Howard are set to play supporting characters. Suvari will portray an uninhibited party girl, and Howard will take on the role of a former jock. Both will help Agnes, a fiancé scorned, in an effort to get back at her former lover.
