Josh Peck

A self-professed disciple of the legendary Jackie Gleason, Josh Peck launched his career as an eight-year-old stand-up comedian in his hometown of New York. The prodigious natural talent struck career gold early on when he was cast in a featured role on the Nickelodeon comedy series, "The Amanda Show" (2000-02), followed by the hit sitcom "Drake & Josh" (Nickelodeon, 2004-07), where he and co-star Drake Bell revived the "Odd Couple" (ABC, 1970-75) shtick for a new generation. His outspoken and self-deprecating brand of humor helped Peck land plum roles in independent projects and voiceover work in animated features, but it was his breakout performance as a disenfranchised teen drug dealer in "The Wackness" (2008) that revealed a versatile actor who appealed to all types of audiences.
