Former Nickelodeon star Drake Bell made headlines earlier this week for his pointed critique of Justin Bieber, and now he’s popped up on our radar again. This time, however, it’s for a less contentious topic than whether or not Justin is talented.
The 27-year-old actor recently reunited with his TV step-brother, Josh Peck. The two posed for a snapshot with Drake teasing a future Drake & Josh reunion. “We are BACK!!! Who is ready for the new movie?!!! #drake&josh #drakeandjosh,” he tweeted January 17.
Um, us! We’re ready! Drake & Josh was one of our go-to entertainment staples back in the day so we’re all for a reboot of the show starring Drake, Josh, and grown-up Miranda Cosgrove (remember, she played annoying little sister Megan). After the likes of Drake & Josh Go Hollywood, Really Big Shrimp, and Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh, we can only imagine the wonders a fourth installment would hold.
Something else amazing about this tweet is that photo and the startling transformation Josh has undergone. The now 27-year-old actor long ago lost the baby fat and cuts a dashing figure beside his heartbreaker of a co-star.
Both have been keeping busy since the Nick series ended in 2007. You may have spotted the svelte Josh in The Mindy Project as Ray Ron and heard Drake in his narration for animated series like Phineas and Ferb and Ultimate Spider-Man (he’s Spidey!).
Would you watch a Drake & Josh movie or is that so five years ago? Super fan with us in the comments below or, you know, don’t.
