Who is Josh Peck?

Born Joshua Michael Peck on the 10th November 1985, in New York City, USA, he is an actor, voice actor and YouTube personality, perhaps best known to the world for his role as Josh in the Nickelodeon live-action comedy series “Drake & Josh”, which aired from 2004 until 2007, among many other roles.

Early Life, Parents, and Education

The son of Barbara, Josh never met his biological father and the two lived in small one-bedroom apartments in New York City. During his childhood Josh had health problems, including a battle with asthma and being overweight. His asthma made him stay at home and watch sitcoms, which resulted in him becoming interested in comedy at the age of eight.

He went to P.S. 40 and The Professional Performing Arts School, and would later join TADA! Youth theater, where he started practicing his acting and comedy skills. He made his debut stand-up comedy performance at Carolines on Broadway, for the Audrey Hepburn foundation.

Career Beginnings

Five years into comedy and acting, Josh received an offer to become a part of Nickelodeon’s “The Amanda Show”. After a talk with his mother Josh accepted the role, and moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. He remained in the show for the next two years, during which time he made several other appearances, including his film debut in the drama film “The Newcomers”, and a minor role in the comedy film “Max Keeble’s Big Move” in 2001. In 2004 he played George Tooney in the crime-drama film “Mean Creek”, which was his last role before he started losing pounds, which was a turnaround moment in his career. Being overweight in his adolescent years played a big part in his early career, but he has since devoted himself to a healthy lifestyle, losing over 40 pounds in a couple of years.

Rise to Prominence

In 2004, Josh was chosen for the part of Josh in the sitcom “Drak & Josh”, starring next to Drake Bell and Miranda Cosgrove. The particular role made them extremely popular with the younger audience, so that Nickelodeon decided to cast them in films “Drake & Josh Go Hollywood” in 2006, and the 2007 sequel “Drake & Josh: Really Big Shrimp”, and they returned for another film in 2008, entitled “Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh”. During this time in the “Drake & Josh” franchise, he was also building a name for himself in other projects, including the independent film “Special” in 2006, and in 2008 starring in the comedy film “The Wackness”, next to Ben Kingsley and Olivia Thirlby.

Continual Success

Josh was now an accomplished actor with a few notable credits and awards to his name, so it became quite easy for him to land new roles, and as a result, his career was on a constant rise. In 2012 he was Matt Eckert in the highly-acclaimed sci-fi action thriller film “Red Dawn”, starring next to Chris Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson, and in 2013 starred in the drama film “Battle of the Year”. Since then, he has become more focused on voice acting, but has still secured a few notable roles on screen, such as the part of Nicky Ernst in the Golden Globe Award-nominated film “Danny Collins” in 2015, with Al Pacino, Annette Benning and Jennifer Garner in the lead roles, while most recently he co-starred alongside James Franco in the fantasy sci-fi horror film “The Labyrinth” (2017), and had the lead role in the drama film “Locating Silver Lake” in 2018.
