According to Zap2It, Barton has landed a role in the Ashton Kutcher-produced, one-hour pilot A Beautiful Life. The show follows a group of young models living together in New York City.

The mediocre actress will portray Sonja, one of the veteran catwalkers that is desperately trying to remain relevant in the industry. Hmmm... sounds perfect for Barton, doesn't it?
