Since becoming a household name via the hit Nickelodeon series Drake & Josh, Drake Bell has evolved into an international music, television and film star. He was most recently seen paying homage to the network that launched his career as star of Nickelodeon's live-action/CG adaptation of The Fairly Odd Parents, A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner!, opposite Daniella Monet, and is currently starring as Peter Parker in Disney XD's new animated series Ultimate Spider-Man.
His 10 U.S. and International Nickelodeon Kids' Choice and Teen Choice Awards have proven Drake a fan favorite over the years in both acting and music. As a musician with two successful albums under his belt -- the indie release Telegraph and It's Only Time -- a chart-topping single, "I Know," and past tour sell-outs of 3,000-8,000 seat venues, Drake released a new independent EP, A Reminder, last June, which became a Top 5 release on iTunes. This last fall he was also able to mix both his love of acting and his love of music in his first ever Broadway endeavor; he performed as the lead in the theatrical workshop production of "A Moment in Time," the new musical from five-time Tony Award-winning producer Stewart F. Lane.
Drake's other acting credits include playing John Cusack's son in the HBO film The Jack Bull, as well as his memorable role in Jerry Maguire as the son of a hospitalized hockey player client of Tom Cruise's sports agent. He then went on to roles in the feature films High Fidelity and Yours, Mine and Ours, as well as on the TV series Seinfeld, The Drew Carey Show, The Pretender and Home Improvement. Since 2009, Drake has also supported The Thirst Project, a non-profit organization that exists to raise awareness of and bring solutions to the clean water crisis globally through educational outreach and fundraising initiatives.
