EXCLUSIVE: It's a 'Drake & Josh' Reunion -- Drake Bell to Guest Star on 'Grandfathered' With Josh Peck!
By Leanne Aguilera
Hug me, brotha -- the ultimate Drake & Josh reunion is finally happening!
Drake Bell is set to guest star on an upcoming episode of Grandfathered, and he'll be sharing scenes with his former Nickelodeon co-star, Josh Peck, ETonline exclusively reveals.
In an upcoming episode of the hit Fox comedy, Bell will play Kirk, a flashy tech investor whom Gerald (Peck) and Vanessa (Christina Milian) are desperate to meet up with to pitch their new app. But once Gerald and Vanessa come face-to-face with the loaded entrepreneur, they're not sure he's the best man to do business with.
ETonline recently caught up with Peck and the actor revealed that Bell was at the top of his Grandfathered guest star wish list. "I feel like our next guest star has got to be Drake Bell," Peck pitched.
When asked if Bell would be up for the gig, Peck was quick with his reply: "He'd better do it!," he laughed. "I'll just text him and be like, 'Just keep the next six months open for me, will ya?' I mean, I would love it and if he was available and into it, nothing would make me happier."
Peck even had ideas for what kind of character Bell could play. "It would be funny if he was like my arch nemesis, or maybe he starts dating Vanessa and I have a meltdown," Peck said. "Or maybe he works at Jimmy's restaurant and John starts taking a shine to him and I'm totally threatened by it."
Peck and Bell starred in Drake & Josh together from 2004 to 2007 with 57 total episodes as well as two TV films: Drake & Josh Go Hollywood and Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh.
Grandfathered airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
