'Dynasty' Hosts 'Victorious' Reunion With Liz Gillies and Matt Bennett

Jade West and Robbie Shapiro are all grown up and together again.

Matt Bennett made a surprise appearance on Friday’s (Aug. 12) episode of The CW’s Dynasty, which was directed by his Victorious co-star Liz Gillies.

“Anyone else into complex Lego and puppetry? Surprise! I snuck onto the set of [Dynasty] last night and made a little appearance,” Bennett wrote in an Instagram post on Saturday. “Big thanks to director [Liz Gillies] and to the whole cast for allowing me to bring Cole to life. OH and thank you to the City of Atlanta for awarding me with the Best Boy In Town Peach Cup Grand Prix Award.”

Bennett guest-starred as Cole, a bachelor being auctioned for charity at the Sahara Club. Naturally, Fallon (Gillies) served as emcee of the event, giving Gillies and Bennett a chance to share the screen for a wonderfully awkward scene. When asked about his hobbies, Cole mentioned being into puppetry, a clear nod to Bennett’s Victorious character and his passion for ventriloquism. [Side note: where is Rex nowadays?]

It’s been nearly a decade since Bennett and Gillies played classmates on Nickelodeon’s Victorious, which aired for four seasons from 2010 to 2013. The duo has collaborated a few times since then, including making special appearances on Sam & Cat, a spin-off from Victorious and iCarly starring Ariana Grande from the former and Jennette McCurdy from the latter, a joint appearance in Ariana’s “Thank U Next” video in 2019.

Whilst Gillies has been starring on the Dynasty reboot since 2017, Matt has been throwing it back to his Nickelodeon days, DJing iParty events.
