Josh Peck Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jan 1, 0001
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

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 [[Feature~V309722~The Amanda Show~theamandashow[tvseries]]] (as one of the ensemble players supporting lead [[Performer~P303423~Amanda Bynes~amandabynes]]), and then received title billing on his own series, [[Feature~V321409~Drake & Josh~drakejosh[tvseries]]], 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) [[Feature~V253783~Max Keeble's Big Move~maxkeeblesbigmove]], [[Feature~V324948~Ice Age: The Meltdown~iceage:themeltdown]] (where he provided the voice of Eddie), and a supporting role as Ronnie in the [[Performer~P200996~Owen Wilson~owenwilson]] comedy [[Feature~V376144~Drillbit Taylor~drillbittaylor]] (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." ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
