Joshua Michael “Josh” Peck is an American actor, best known for playing Josh Nichols in the Nickelodeon live-action sitcom Drake & Josh, and for, let’s face it, doing puberty the right way!

Peck began his career as a child actor in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. Popularity struck among his young peers after his role on The Amanda Show.

Since then, Josh acted in films such as Mean Creek, Drillbit Taylor, The Wackness, ATM, and Red Dawn, along with voicing Eddie in the Ice Age franchise.
