Drake Bell is an American actor, voice actor, and musician who started his career as a child artist on the ABC sitcom 'Home Improvement' (1994). Among his early acting credits were the 1996 film 'Jerry Maguire', an episode of the NBC sitcom 'Seinfeld' (1998), and a commercial for 'Pokémon Red and Blue' (1999). The following year, he received a 'Young Artist Award' for his role as Cage Redding in the made-for-television film 'The Jack Bull'. Starring on the live action sketch comedy and variety show, 'The Amanda Show' (1999-2002), is considered one of his best roles so far.
In 2004, he bagged a main role on another live action sketch comedy show, 'All That', and was cast as a co-lead on the sitcom 'Drake & Josh'. Since 2011, he has starred in three 'The Fairly OddParents' movies on Nickelodeon. He has voiced Peter Parker/Spider-Man on many animated shows on Disney XD, including 'Ultimate Spider-Man' (2012-17).
While he has mostly done voice acting in direct-to-video movies throughout his short career so far, his early filmography included successful feature films such as 'Yours, Mine & Ours' (2005) and 'Superhero Movie' (2008). However, his 2015 horror-comedy 'L.A. Slasher' was a critical failure.
