After given a green light, "Mean Girls 2" apparently has begun filling the cast line-up. Two actresses, Meaghan Jette Martin and Maiara Walsh, have publicly announced that they are cast in the film to play major characters.

Martin posted on her Facebook, "Here is that announcemet..... I won't be going on [the Camp Rock 2] tour because I will be in Atlanta filming 'Mean Girls 2'! I will be playing the lead role of 'Jo'!" Meanwhile, Walsh has previously written on her Twitter, "So it's official.. I will be playing the lead 'plastic' in Mean Girls 2! I'm off to Atlanta at the end of the month to shoot :)"

Martin's character Jo is the main mean girl like the one played by Rachel McAdams in "Mean Girls". As for Walsh's unnamed character, she will be one of Jo's followers, the Plastics. In the upcoming drama, Jo agrees to befriend outcast Abby at the urging of Abby's wealthy father in exchange for paying all of Jo's costs for the college of her dreams.

The story becomes a high stakes battle of loyalty that ultimately comes to a head when one of our heroines finds out that her friendship has been bought and paid for. Director Melanie Mayron will begin shooting for the movie in July, Paramount Famous Productions stated.

Meaghan Jette Martin plays Tess in "Camp Rock" and reprises the role in "Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam" which will be premiered September 3 on Disney Channel. Maiara Walsh, in the meantime, is known for portraying Ana Solis on "Desperate Housewives", after taking a lead role on Disney Channel sitcom "Cory in the House".

mean girls 2 is going to be awful. the first one is so funny an unforgettable. the actors are much better and not disney channel stars. i might watch it, but i don't think that it's going to be nearly as good as the first one. rachel mcadam was phenomenal, and i don't think disney stars are going to measure up to her.

I think that this movie will NOT be good at all, For one thing. ITS DISNEY characters. (Dont cha think that it would be a little weird to see them cuss & do sexual things) The second reason it because, they dont have that good of people playing in it. I mean Jennifer Stone. & Meaghan Martin? Come on, They could at LEAST do better than that. The Last reason.. Megan Girls Can NEVER be replaced (Thats opinion) The People who played in it cant be replaced No matter how HARD they tryy. Its just not gonna be a good moviee. Hell yeah ill watch it, But i doubt it will be good anyway.

lovin the idea of a second movie! just hope it can reach everyone's expectations !! cant wait x 10

This movie is gonna have big shoes to fill because mean girls one was AMAZING. In my opinion they shouldn't mess with a movie that was already great, especially with disney stars.

Not to be negative, but so not looking forward to this. You just can't make a Mean Girls 2. It's not right. Mean Girls was amazing and it will forever BE amazing. Don't try to sequal it.

Disney channel stars? In a Mean Girls movie? Weak.

Well first off Jennifer Stone has had roles where she cusses so I don't think she'll have a problem with it. I read that there is a nude scene in it. I don't know how that will work for TV. I also think that most of the girls in this film have done adult work so I don't think it will be PG. It may be R but not PG.

i agree with what Lauren said down there!! this movie WONT be the same. mean girls was a friggen really,the movie gave an obvious hint that there was gonna be a 2nd one when , at the end of the movie,they showed those junior "plastics"&shiz. soo,yeah. + I really dont think it was a good idea to cast disney stars. i say they should have got NEW actresses.
posted by Lauren on Aug 02, 2010
WOW! the first movie was amazing the cast just fit! the mean girls 2 will just b another ignorant sequal tht didnt need to happen! it will tank without rachel mcadams she was an amazing rejina!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! now its disney stars total pg movie

This will never live up to the first one.
posted by sdgadg on Jul 07, 2010
this is so stupid. i don't understand why they even feel the need to make another mean girls. the first one was amazing, and nothing is gonna top it.
posted by Anon on Jul 03, 2010
This movie will NOT be PG. it has more cussing than the first one did. And Jennifer Stone and 2 more big teen names have been cast. They are working hard to get an original cast member to return

I was at an eclipse thingy today and I met the guy that plays Walsh's bf. He told me that also Jennifer Stone will be starring in it too.
posted by LOL on Jul 02, 2010
This movie is going to be awful. No offense but this girl doesn't have the looks, or acting abilities to take after rachel mcadams, not to mention she looks more like a soph than a senior. Willa Holland would have worked 1000 times better. I guess your bound to fail when you're trying to do justice to something Tina Fey wrote.

this isnt going to be the same as the old mean girls

I'm not really in the movie iwanted to sound cool
posted by RJ on Jun 28, 2010
I've been cast as a supporting role in this movie, I'm pretty sure the full cast will be announced soon. But yes, NONE of the original cast is returning. Maiara plays the lead plastic, I believe her name is Mandi (?) And Meaghan plays Jo, a part similar to Kady Herron. My cousin went to the open casting call and she said thousands of people were there, so good luck to anyone else who auditioned!

I dont see what u mean by confusing? This is Mean Girls 2. Racheal M. Was the main "plastic" in the first movie. Walsh is going to be the main "plastic" in the new one.
posted by blahblah on Jun 26, 2010
Wait????????????! This is such a confusing article. So, wasn't Rachael M. actually the main "Plastic". But, Walsh said that she was. What does this mean??????????????????????
