Move over Miley and Selena. Victoria Justice is fast becoming Hollywood's hottest teen/tween star, and in addition to her own Nickelodeon series “Victorious,” the 18-year-old can now add “video game leading lady” to her resume.
D3Publisher (D3P) and Nickelodeon have joined forced to release “Victorious™: Time to Shine” on Kinect™ for Xbox 360® and “Victorious™: Hollywood Arts Debut” for the Nintendo DS™ hand-held system. Based on Nickelodeon’s uber-popular live action comedy series “Victorious,” the performance-based games transport players into the exclusive Hollywood Arts High School world where they can either star in their own music video or in a big showcase alongside Tori Vega and the “Victorious” cast.
“When they told me they were making a video game out of ‘Victorious’ I thought it was so awesome," Justice told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column. "It freaks me out already that there was going to be a doll of my character, but then having a game that fans of the show can play and they can interact with us and sing along and dance and just have a good time with us. I thought that was really, really cool."
And we can expect to see a lot more of the bubbly brunette in the months to come.
“I just filmed my first lead in a feature film by Paramount; it’s called ‘Fun Size.’ So that’s coming out next Halloween and I’m so excited about that. I’m also working on a solo album, so I’ve been writing a lot of music, and I can’t wait to release some of that," Justice said. "“(For the next phase of my career) I would love to continue to do more movies. I would love to keep songwriting and making music and hopefully tour one day, that would be so cool.”
So who does Miss Justice look up to for inspiration? Why, another accomplished star who so happened to get his big break entertaining young ones.
“Someone’s career that I admire would have to be Justin Timberlake’s because he started off on Disney and he made this huge film career and huge solo music career. I really respect him as an artist,” she added. “I think he’s hilarious and I would love to host ‘SNL’ one day. So, fingers crossed.”
