Disney Star Meaghan Martin Lands Lead In 'Mean Girls 2'
Disney darling Meaghan Martin has landed the lead in the TV sequel to Lindsay Lohan's "Mean Girls."
The teenage star of "Camp Rock" and "Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam" used Rachel McAdams' bitchy character in "Mean Girls" as her inspiration for her role as Tess in the Jonas Brothers films - and now she's getting the chance to play mean onscreen again.
She tells Celebuzz.com, "It's ironic that I was probably using more of 'Mean Girls' for 'Camp Rock' than 'Mean Girls 2!' I can quote the original 'Mean Girls' pretty much beginning to end. I didn't really study the first movie for this role (in the spin-off) just because my character is very different from Lindsay's - (my character) Jo is like a tough tomboy kind of badass girl and that's not really Lindsay's character."
And Martin doesn't mind chatter suggesting she's the next Lindsay Lohan: "In some ways it's like, 'Well thank you,' because before she did lose her footing she had an incredible career. If I could have that career and just not have the end results of it, then I will be very happy. She (Lohan) kind of fell off the edge, which is sad. I feel bad for her."
