No matter what most teens have planned for Halloween, it's sure to pale in comparison to the events that unfold in "Fun Size." Told to babysit her younger brother and take him trick or treating, Wren quickly manages to lose him. With her best friend, April, in tow she sets out to find him before her mother realizes he's gone. Not only is it an entertaining ride, but it features some of Hollywood's hottest young actors. Here's a look at the stars of "Fun Size."

Victoria Justice as Wren

Victoria Justice's sitcom, "Victorious," might have been canceled but that doesn't mean the 19-year-old actress is slowing down. After seven years as one of Nickelodeon's biggest stars, now Justice can branch out to conquer other fields. She's already a TV star, top 10 recording artist and now she's about to carry her first feature film.

And to cap off the movie's opening weekend, Justice will be performing at the Keep a Child Alive's annual Halloween benefit in Los Angeles. As the organization's website explains, "We are dedicated to providing life-saving AIDS treatment, care, nutrition, support services and love to children and families affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India by directly engaging the global public in the fight against AIDS."

Jane Levy as April

In 2011 Jane Levy landed her first big role in a TV series on Showtime's gritty family dramedy "Shameless." But she was ultimately recast, taking the part of Tessa Altman on "Suburgatory" and becoming a household name.

The super-smart, totally cool but struggling to fit in Tessa, instantly became one of television's greatest teen icons. Busy with her small screen duties, Levy hasn't done a lot of feature film work. She co-starred in the indie film "Nobody Walks." The film had a limited release on October 19. It was directed by Ry Russo-Young, who co-wrote the script with Lena Dunham.

Next up Levy will take on the lead role in the remake of "The Evil Dead." Fede Alvarez will take over directing duties from the film franchise's original creator Sam Raimi. And this time Levy, not Bruce Campbell, will have to contend with the dark mysteries surrounding the "Book of the Dead."

Thomas McDonell as Aron Riley

For those who have come to love Jane Levy on "Suburgatory" will definitely recognize "Fun Size" star Thomas McDonell as well. He played her not-so-perfect boyfriend Scott Strauss. You know the one who's "been to Africa. Africa."

Although he's out of his teen years, that hasn't stopped him from playing younger than his advanced years. Even though he's in his mid-'20s his last major film role was in another high school movie called "Prom," opposite Aimee Teegarden. But his next part will take a decidedly darker turn when he appears in the upcoming thriller "The Occult," which is due to hit theaters in 2013.

Osric Chau as Peng

Canadian-born actor Osric Chau started off training in the martial arts, hoping to one day become a stunt man. But his skills led to a part in "Kung Fu Killer" starring David Carradine. It wasn't long before he scored a part in Roland Emmerich's blockbuster film "2012," playing a Tibetan monk. But "Fun Size" isn't the only big movie that Chau has coming out this fall. "The Man with the Iron Fists," starring Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu, opens on November 2.
