No one can deny that the super hot boy band One Direction has taken over pop music — and I have a feeling they could soon take over the acting world too!
Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, and the rest of the guys will play themselves on a special One Direction-themed episode of iCarly that will air on April 7 on Nickelodeon. These cuties have so much personality, I’m positive that if they want to turn this opportunity into a second career, they have what it takes to make it happen!
In the episode, called “iGo One Direction,” Carly (Miranda Cosgrove) returns from a trip to find out that One Direction will perform on her web show — but then she accidentally passes a nasty case of the jungle worms to Harry Styles, and gets him really sick! Harry loves the attention he gets from Carly while she nurses him back to health, and “takes it too far,” Miranda told J-14 magazine.
I can’t wait to watch the boys flex their acting muscles!
These guys have snagged SO many amazing opportunities recently — from getting their first headlining show at Madison Square Garden, to their KILLER performance at the 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards. This boy band’s star is on the rise, and it’s all up for them from here. Michelle Obama even invited them to the White House! The group eventually had to turn down that invitation, but they did so graciously — and that’s why One Direction is here to stay.
But the best thing about One Direction is that their super-fast rise to fame hasn’t changed them. They are SO kind to their fans, and extremely appreciative of every opportunity they’re given. Their Nickelodeon co-star Miranda even vouched for that, saying they were great on set!
“Harry did a great job and I had a lot of fun working with him,” she told J-14.” Acting came to them very easily — they have great comedic timing!”
One Direction is super-talented AND down-to-earth, which is why they’ll be around for a long time — and this probably won’t be the last time we see them on scripted TV! Watch this preview from their iCarly episode, courtesy of J-14.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Will One Direction make it big as actors too?
