Miranda Cosgrove isn’t one to wait for a big break, she’s always been more of the type of person to grab Hollywood by the horns. Plus, she’s got the skills to back it up. Even when she was just three years old, when she appeared in her first commercial, or seven years after her first commercial, and stealing the spotlight in School of Rock. As her career went on, her comedic chops got more and more toned. Case and point, her role as the slightly sadistic little sister in Drake and Josh, and as the star of her own, incredibly successful, Nickelodeon show, iCarly.
Cosgrove started recording music during iCarly, released her album, “Sparks Fly” in 2010, and went on tour. But now the news is hot that she’s returning to TV, and with that we’re presenting the top reasons you need to pay attention to Miranda Cosgrove in 2015.
1. Her chilling movie, The Intruders, was released.
It’s definitely hard to picture the iCarly star in a horror film, but Cosgrove seriously proved herself. She’s well known for her comedy work, but The Intruders make it obvious that Miranda has way more potential than she’s been able to show. The movie promises to chill you to the core, and make you wonder who you can really trust.
2. She’s coming back to TV!
Cosgrove has been attached to co-star in Suzanne Miller’s, who is best known for her work on Ellen, Fraiser, and Hot in Cleveland, new pilot for NBC. Hopes are incredibly high for this project, and with these two women working on set, it’ll no doubt be NBC’s next huge hit.
3. Her character sounds hilarious!
Miranda is set to play Shea, a woman who holds a doctorate in astrophysics, wants to be an astronaut, is slightly socially awkward, and is forced to move back into her childhood home.
