Variety has reported that little-known actor Paul Iacono will star alongside Jessica Szohr in “Owned”.

Directed by American Pie 2 director JB Rogers, from a script by Jim Freeman, the film will follow Iacono’s character as he is blackmailed by his neighbor (Szohr) with a video … only to find that it backfires on her and turns him into Mr. Popular.

Another teen comedy about compromising videos and popularity! We’re sure we can expect lots of gags about vomit and sex as well then.

Iacono is the star of MTV’s “The Hard Times of R.J. Berger”, a comedy described as a blend of “The Wonder Years” and the film “Superbad.”, and Szohr was a regular on “Gossip Girl”, and signed on to this project back in April.
