Here Are Josh Peck's Funniest Firsts
| LAST UPDATE 07/29/2021
In honor of Josh Peck's new comedy series coming out on Disney+, the former Nickelodeon star sat down with BuzzFeed Celeb to talk about some of his most memorable firsts times. And we were laughing from start to finish.
Josh got the segment started by answering a question about when he realized he was truly famous for the first time. For those who remember, the former Drake & Josh star got started in Hollywood at a very young age, so you could imagine that the scale of his fame might have been lost on him. But it certainly wasn't lost on his mother. "My mom uses any level of celebrity I have for her own selfish interests all the time," the 34-year-old comedic actor shared. "If you're ever talked to my mom and you're a customer service person, you know that Barbara Peck's son is Josh Peck and that she expects some special treatment." But for Josh, the fame really clicked when he was mauled by a mob of kids in California when they spotted him walking through a mall.
Then came the Drake & Josh memories. Peck had the perfect answer when asked what his "first behind-the-scenes memory of shooting" the show was. During a scene with Miranda Cosgrove, the two got accidentally peed on by a baby. But according to Peck, it prepared him perfectly for fatherhood. "I have a two-and-a-half-year-old son, this is not far-fetched, it happens all the time," he laughed. "I just remember thinking, 'Wow, this is a job. I'm being paid to do this.' It's [a] pretty wild memory, but awesome."
From first celebrity crushes to first audition rejections, Josh had tons of hilarious and honest Hollywood stories to share with BuzzFeed viewers. Plus, we got to hear about the way he found out he was expecting his first child! Whether it be the entertainment industry or his personal life, the Turner & Hooch star brought laughs with each story, no matter how embarrassing it was.
