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.

Early success

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”.

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”.

As of November 2020, Josh is married to Paige O’Brien, and they have a son together named Max, born in December 2018.

Weight loss

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”.

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.
