Not as dreamy as his Drake & Josh
cohort Drake Bell, this cuddly nerd boasts a keen sense of humor. When visiting Bell in the hospital after his 2005 car crash, Peck reportedly quipped, "You're still better looking than me, man." Peck was just a child when he started showcasing his self-deprecating style and goofy persona on the stand-up comedy circuit. In 2000, the 14-year-old funnyman made his big- and small-screen debuts, in the film Snowday
and as a regular cast member on Nickelodeon's The Amanda Show
. Four years later, he and Amanda
costar Drake Bell earned their own eponymous sitcom as a pair of mismatched stepbrothers. Although Bell was undoubtedly the hip, cute one, Peck got a lot of the laughs. He also improved his appearance during his tenure by dropping a noticeable amount of weight.Josh Peck Fast Facts:
