He starred in and co-wrote the short film Text Me in 2010. Bennett later starred in The Virginity Hit, released in October 2010. Described as a "documentary style comedy," Bennett stated in an interview that the film's "directors gave us cameras in our spare time, and he said do pranks, talk amongst yourselves, do things and film that. So we did, and most of the movie is what we filmed. So I feel like 20% is scripted but the rest is all real."
