If you've been missing your weekly dose of Victoria Justice, we have good news! According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Victorious actress just landed the starring role in MTV's new pilot Eye Candy, based on the book by RL Stine.
Eye Candy follows Lindy, who will be played by Victoria, a tech genius who is convinced by her roommate to give online dating a try. Lindy ends up meeting a man who may be a deadly cyber stalker and works with a team of hackers to solve a bunch of murders that have been taking place in New York City.
This role is definitely different from her Nickelodeon days spent as Tori Vega, but MTV programming president Susanne Daniels thinks she's the perfect fit.
"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," Susanne said.
We hope the Eye Candy pilot is impressive enough to be picked up for a full season. After all, we need more Victoria Justice in our lives!
