Dan Schneider Presents: Matt Bennett’s Audition for “Victorious”

Our Schneider’s Bakery alums are so talented that a lot of their characters have become completely iconic. That’s why it’s so fun to get a glimpse of these talented individuals off-set—getting a glimpse at their behind-the-scenes personas just makes their acting skills that much more impressive.

Dan Schneider’s “Victorious” brought television some wonderful characters, from Victoria Justice’s Tori Vega to Ariana Grande’s Cat Valentine. One of our favorite characters to come out of Victorious was Matt Bennett’s awkward but sweet Robbie Shapiro.

Dan Schneider’s YouTube channel has an exclusive clip of Matt Bennett’s audition for the part of “Victorious’” Robbie. Take a look!

So what else has Matt been up to? For fans of the hit comedy “Bridesmaids,” you might not make the connection right away, but he played Helen’s disdainful stepson. Following “Victorious” and an appearance on “Sam & Cat,” Matt landed a role in the touching indie film “Me, Earl and the Dying Girl.” He has also appeared on “Shameless,” “The Big Bang Theory,” and “Fresh off the Boat.”
