Drake Bell has been dying to film a “Drake & Josh” movie for years! Between filing for bankruptcy and his less than stellar album sales he wants to cash in as much as possible on the roles that made him famous.
Drake appeared in “Drake & Josh” alongside Josh Peck for years after he was on “The Amanda Show.” Now Drake is well known for playing Timmy Turner in Nickelodeon’s “Fairly Odd Parents” movies.
While Drake is all for a “Drake & Josh” movie, Josh Peck has had NO interest in reprising his role. But, it looks like Drake is trying his best to butter up his former co-star to convince him to work with him again!
Drake told Parade Magazine:
It was really awesome when I got to work with Josh, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, this is amazing: I get to do what I’ve wanted to do for my whole life.’ I get to be the straight man to this wacky, crazy, funny guy and I get to allow myself to be funny and crazy, too. And sketch comedy stuff like The Amanda Show, being 12 years old and being able to wear the craziest costumes and be wild and out there and everyone’s saying, ‘Yeah, keep doing that.’ It was a great outlet as a child to be able to just be creative and explore all these different characters. It was cool to really expand your creativity at such a young age.

Fingers crossed Miranda Cosgrove would agree to the movie as well!
