Josh Peck Wiki Bio
Joshua Michael Peck was born in New York City, USA, on 10 November 1986 – his zodiac sign is Scorpio and he holds American nationality. He is a YouTuber, actor and a comedian, who might be known best for his role in the family comedy series “The Amanda Show” created by Dan Schneider, and which starred Amanda Bynes, Drake Bell and Nancy Sullivan – it aired from 1999 to 2002 (Josh joined in late 2000) and won six awards while it was nominated for five others.
Childhood and education
Josh was raised in Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan an only child, by his mother Barbara who worked several jobs to support herself and her son, while Josh never met his father.
He became interested in doing stand-up comedy at the age of eight, and often performed for his mother and grandmother. Josh studied at The Professional Performing Arts School, focusing on acting and stand-up comedy, and upon matriculation in 2004, he chose not to pursue a college degree but to focus on his acting career.
He was actually just 10 years old when he first performed, in the daytime variety program “The Rosie O’Donnell Show”, and was then invited to appear in the series “The Amanda Show”. Josh went on to practice at TADA! Youth Theatre, and perform at Carolines on Broadway.
Roles in movies
Josh has been credited with appearing in around 75 movies and TV series, and we are about to mention some of his most notable performances in this article.
One of his first roles in movies was in the 2000 comedy “Snow Day”, in which he played the supporting character Wayne Alworth. The following years saw him appear in the 2001 comedy “Max Keeble’s Big Move”, the 2002 black comedy crime film “Spun”, and the 2004 psychological drama “Mean Creek”. In 2006, he voiced Eddie in the animated adventure comedy “Ice Age: The Meltdown”, and reprised his role in “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs” in 2009 and “Ice Age: Continental Drift” in 2012 – the same year saw him star alongside Chris Hemsworth in the action movie “Red Dawn”. In 2015, Josh appeared in three movies: the buddy romantic comedy “The Wedding Ringer”, the comedy drama “Danny Collins”, and the western thriller “The Timber”.
Three of his most recent roles in movies have been in the 2017 black comedy “Take the 10” in which he played the lead character Chris, the drama “Locating Silver Lake” starring as Daniel, and the Chinese animated comedy “Boonie Bears: Entangled Worlds” voicing Bramble. Josh has recently been cast to play Vince in the upcoming science fiction movie “Doors”.
Roles in TV series
He made his debut TV series appearance in 2000, when he appeared in the episode “The Cast from Snow Day/Hoku” of the comedy sketch “All That”, and then appeared in single episodes of many series such as the medical drama “ER”, the sketch comedy “Mad TV” and the drama “The Guardian”.
He gained recognition in 2004 when cast to play Josh Nichols, one of the lead characters in the sitcom “Drake & Josh” created by Dan Schneider, and which also starred Drake Bell and Miranda Cosgrove – it follows two step brother,s one of whom is a popular singer while the other is a geek, and it won 11 awards while it was nominated for five others. His following notable performance was in the comedy “Grandfathered” created by Daniel Chun, starring as Gerald alongside Paget Brewster and Josh Stamos – the story follows a man who finds out that he is a father and a grandfather, and it won one award and was nominated for two others.
A few of Josh’s most recent roles in TV series have been in the 2016 episode “Josh Peck vs. Christina Millan” of the musical reality competition series “Lip Sync Battle”, two 2018 episodes of the sitcom “Fuller House”, and a single 2018 episode of the Netflix series “Best.Worst.Weekend.Ever.” He has recently been cast to appear in the upcoming comedy “Turner & Hooch”.
Other works and awards
In 2006, Josh voiced Eddie in the video game “Ice Age 2: The Meltdown”, and helped design the character Josh Nichols for two video games – “Drake & Josh” and “Drake & Josh: Talent Showdown”. The years 2009 and 2012 heard him voice Eddie in the video game “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs” and the mobile game “Ice Age: Continental Drift – Arctic Games” respectively and in 2014 Josh voice Casey Jones in “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Danger of the Ooze”.
Josh is also a YouTuber, who launched his channel on 8 June 2017 and it’s today subscribed to by almost four million people, and counts over 332 million views of all his videos combined. Josh mostly uploads comedy content – his most popular video “TELLING FRIENDS MY WIFE IS PREGNANT!!” has been viewed more than 15 million times since 28 August 2018.
Josh won an Independent Spirit Award – Special Distinction for “Mean Creek” in 2005, and a 2008 UK Kids’ Choice Award for Favorite Male TV Star for “Drake & Josh”. The following years saw him nominated for eight awards, including three Teen Choice Awards and three Behind the Voice Actors Awards, but without winning any.
Wife and baby
Josh married Paige O’Brien in June 2017 after the two dated for over five years, and what the media found interesting was that Josh didn’t invite Drake Bell to the wedding for unknown reasons – Paige is a film editor and cinematographer who might be known best for having worked on the movies “Black Wolf”, “Let Go” and “Tell Me a Story”.
Before Paige, Josh dated non-celebrity Kelly Louie from 2005 to mid-2006, and the following year saw him date Famke Janssen, a Dutch actress and film director known for her roles in the spy movie “GoldenEye”, and the superhero movie franchise “X-Men”. In 2009, he dated Hanna Beth Merjos, an American actress and model.
As of November 2020, Josh is married to Paige O’Brien, and they have a son together named Max, born in December 2018.
Josh was a chubby teen, then after gaining recognition for his acting skills, he decided he would become healthy and fit and serve as an example for all those who watched him on TV. His family helped him hire a nutritionist and a physical trainer, and Josh started off by taking long walks before he began running and working out at a gym. His nutritionist helped him choose a diet plan which would suit him – the hardest thing for Josh was to avoid eating sugar, but he managed to stick to the plan and lose weight.
Hobbies and other interests
Josh’s main hobby is being active on social media networks, and he’s very popular on Instagram as his account numbers more than 10.4 million followers, while he’s uploaded more than 1,600 pictures onto it.
He is physically very active, as he still has several training sessions at the gym each week, while he is also a martial artist who has been taking Taekwondo lessons since his teenage years – as an extension of that, he’s also been practicing mixed martial arts (MMA) for several years now.
Josh is keen on watching movies, and has his own favorite actors and actresses some of whom are Ben Kingsley, Matt Damon and Julia Roberts – he has stated how he believes that nobody is as good at acting as Ben. A few of his favorite movies are “Gandhi”, “Schindler’s List” and “Shutter Island”.
Age, height and net worth
Josh’s age is 34. He has short brown hair and brown eyes, his height is 6ft (1.83m) and he weighs around 165lbs (75kgs).
As of November 2020, his net worth has been estimated at over $9 million.
