Meaghan MartinDisney 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."
