Victorious yet again! The gorgeous actress/singer is headed back to television after being cast as the lead in MTV’s upcoming cyber-thriller show.
Victorious only ended in February but we’re already having Victoria Justice withdrawals. Thankfully, it was announced on Oct. 14 that the 20-year-old actress was cast as the lead role in a new, intense thriller TV series!
Victoria Justice Cast In ‘Eye Candy’
Victoria has signed on to star in Eye Candy, an upcoming MTV show, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The show is based on an RL Stine (remember Goosebumps?) best-selling book of the same name.
The actress will be playing Lindy, a cyber whizz who is convinced by her roommate to try online dating. But all goes wrong when she begins to suspect that one of her online suitors is a deadly stalker.
When a new serial killer pops up in Manhattan, where the series will take place, all signs point to the suspect being one of Lindy’s dates! To fight back, Lindy joins a team of top-notch hackers to track down the guy.
This sounds like a mix of Pretty Little Liars and Catfish, so it’s pretty much right up our alley.
Victoria Justice: MTV Is Lucky To Have Her
After the announcement was made, MTV released a statement explaining why they went with Victoria:
Victoria Justice is exactly someone we want to be in business with. Not only does she resonate with our audience, she has a huge fan base and is extremely talented. We are very lucky to have her.
And we’re very lucky to be able to see Victoria on TV again! This sounds like a really juicy role that could catapult her to superstardom.
