Josh Peck - Rotten Tomatoes

Josh Peck



Actor Josh Peck rose to fame as a teen star, initially thanks to a frequent presence on the Nickelodeon children's television network. He began with a multi-season stint on the youth-oriented sketch comedy variety series The Amanda Show (as one of the ensemble players supporting lead Amanda Bynes), and then received title billing on his own series, Drake & Josh, which ran from 2004 to 2007. In that program, Peck played one of two constantly quarreling teens who inadvertently wind up as stepbrothers when their single parents wed -- then engage in a series of colorful adventures together and forge the closest of friendships. Commensurate with the long-running success and popularity of this program, Peck was able to branch out into movies with minimal effort -- in such films as (the Nickelodeon-produced) Max Keeble's Big Move, Ice Age: The Meltdown (where he provided the voice of Eddie), and a supporting role as Ronnie in the Owen Wilson comedy Drillbit Taylor (2008). The initially chubby Peck also made headlines for losing a prodigious amount of weight in a concerted effort to get fit and healthy. He later reflected on his body image: "It's my responsibility as a role model to keep up an image and help young people."



Once Drake & Josh ended in 2007, Peck played the lead in The Wackness, a coming of age film set in 1994. The film earned favorable reviews and helped Peck launch his adult career, though he still made occasional appearances on Nickelodeon shows. He reprised his role of Eddie in Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (2009) and Ice Age: Continental Drift (2012). Also in 2012, the long-shelved remake of Red Dawn was finally released (the movie was filmed in 2009) and Peck nabbed the voice role of Casey Jones in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TV series. After memorable guest appearances on The Mindy Project and The Big Bang Theory, Peck landed on Grandfathered, opposite John Stamos, in the fall of 2015.
