Victoria Justice, pictured, has been cast in the pilot for MTV’s “Eye Candy” reports Variety.
“The Nickelodeon alum will play Lindy, a beautiful but reclusive hacker whose blog exposes everything from terrorist plots to suspected killers. Convinced by her roommate to begin online dating, Lindy is targeted by a dangerous cyberstalker and believes one of her suitors to be the culprit. When things take a deadly turn, she teams up with the city’s cyber-crime unit to catch the killer.”
Casting marks Justice’s first since wrapping “Victorious” on Nick and pursuing her music career.
