Max Schneider is having the time of his life. Mostly known for his clever videos he makes with Victoria Justice, the How To Rock actor is getting his turn in the spotlight – he has an EP coming out this summer and was just cast in an upcoming NBC pilot.
He posted this pic on Twitter and wrote, “I’m just a happy monkey.”
The currently un-named project for NBC is an action thriller set in Washington DC and follows a Secret Service agent who is thrown into an international crisis when the President’s son is kidnapped.
Meanwhile, Max‘ admirers – who call themselves ‘Schneider Monkeys’ – are doing their part to keep the 20-year-old actor/director/musician centerstage: they’ve launched a campaign to get Max on the Ellen DeGeneres Show and even made a short film urging the powers-that-be to make it happen. Go monkeys!
