Victoria Justice has landed her first major movie role. The actress and singer will appear in the Paramount comedy Fun Size. The 18-year-old Justice is having quite a successful year so far, having just released a music video for the songÂ Begging On My Knees and of course, starring in the Nickelodeon series Victorious. Now, Justice can add “movie actress” to her growing resumÃ©.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Victoria Justice beat out some very well-known teen actresses to win the part in Fun Size, including Chloe Moretz and Jane Levy. In Fun Size, Justice will play a teen who takes her younger brother out for Halloween trick-or-treating, then loses him. Panic and hilarity ensue as she tries to find her brother before her mom finds out he’s missing.
Fun Size will also mark the directorial debut of TV writer/producer Josh Schwartz (Gossip Girl, The O.C.). Now that Victoria Justice has secured the role, she’ll reportedly be getting down to work soon; shooting on Fun Size is expected to start this spring. Such an exciting opportunity for the tremendously talented Justice, who seems to be conquering television, the music industry, and now major motion pictures all at once!
