Funny, I’d always assumed from their cacophonous pinging that they were both closet cases more into each other than women (or girls, in Drake’s case), but I guess they really are straight as they claimed after all.

There's the implication that at least one image was sent, R54, and one article about this said that Bell had some sort of "relationship" with the girl for "several years." Who knows what that means? She may have been a fan he was grooming.

by Anonymousreply 56June 6, 2021 12:35 AM

One of his former (age-appropriate) girlfriends killed herself, and another later one accused him of throwing her around. He sounds like a mean nasty manlet.

Worth noting—Drake’s mother is an evangelical nut, his real father left the family and divorced his mother when Drake was a kid but still spent time with Drake as his acting manager/chaperone (father of the year...), and his big break came from Dan Schneider. Drake was also Amanda Bynes’ first boyfriend. Hell of a minefield backstory.

Ughh. I grew up watching all of these Dan Schneider shows (All That, The Amanda Show, Zoey 101, iCarly and Drake & Josh). Everyone from these shows ended up severely messed up. The cast of Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide all seem well-adjusted and likely because it wasn't one of "Get in the Van" Dan's projects.

I never thought Drake was all that looks-wise. He fit the 2000s pop punk twink look if you were into that. Josh, on the other hand, blossomed into a really stunning guy in the last few seasons of Drake & Josh. It became laughable they kept trying to make him the nerdy loser who was unlucky with women when he became significantly hotter than Drake.

by Anonymousreply 62June 6, 2021 3:48 AM

R60 the way Devon Werkheiser tells it, even at 12 years old he wasn’t all that impressed by Drake. Probably because Devon comes from a non-showbiz-obsessed, non-child-exploiting background.

Devon is cute, and quite emotionally wise for his age too. And he kind of pings. Is he family? Or is he just a Georgia peach?

I remember watching one of Devon's YouTube videos for the first time and I was blown away by how country he sounds. Nickelodeon really got him a good vocal coach to scrub that Georgia accent for Ned's Declassified. Same with Jamie Lynn Spears, she has a thicker accent than Britney but it wasn't detectable on Zoey 101.

R65 yes, I noticed that too! The difference is stark.

He sounds more naturally adorable and appealing with his warm soft native accent, but I understand that for a kids’ show they needed and wanted a neutral universally-understood Blank American.

Drake could really benefit from watching Devon’s series of life lesson lectures on YouTube, and applying them to his own life.

(Didn’t know this, but apparently Devon irl dated and fell for the girl who played his girlfriend Moze on NED’S? Crazy. I really did think he’s gay or at least bi/flexible, he’s giving me vibes...)

And I too get the trauma of having dated a Cancerian man. All they do is whine, bitch, cry, make passive-aggressive and unreasonable demands, and wear jeans in womens’ sizes for some reason I never figured out.

Drake Bell hasn’t been in any big movies since the mid 2010s. At least Josh has been able to scrapple his career into a functional social media following. They both come off as kinda rapey to me these days. I don’t think my kids will miss out not watching 20 year old ‘Drake and Josh’ reruns. Show aged like milk afaik.

by Anonymousreply 76June 7, 2021 3:49 PM

R75 All of Schneider's shows had weirdly sexual elements. Logan from Zoey 101 was also implied to be a man-whore simular to Drake. iCarly had jokes about humping squirrels, pointy boobs and Build-A-Bra workshop. Victorious and Zoey 101 had some blatant objectification of the female cast which is creepier now due to the Dan Schneider's allegations.

by Anonymousreply 77June 8, 2021 12:53 PM

Schneider definitely got lucky with All That, Kenan & Kel and The Amanda Show. Likely due to more talent and Nickelodeon having closer eye on him. He got too much freedom in the 2000s and ended up recycling the same jokes and mean-spirited characters with his sitcoms. Basically the Chuck Lorre and Seth McFarlane of Nickelodeon. The 90s Nick shows aged better like Pete & Pete, Rugrats, Are You Afraid of the Dark? and Clarissa because they didn't insult the viewers intelligence.

Drake's music isn't bad. I kind of feel bad for child and teen stars. No matter how hard they try, they always end up associated with the roles they take when they're young. Especially so if they starred in a movie or TV show for a younger audience. Elijah Wood and Scarlett Johansson are exceptions because they did plenty of adult oriented films as kids and teens.

R80 it isn’t really a fair comparison to draw with Elijah Wood, who is an unusually natural talent and has been since he started, plus well-trained in both stage and screen by American standards. Yes, both he and Drake booked big movies and shows before they were twelve years old, but Elijah played leading roles and carried those projects where Drake had bit parts and supporting roles. Elijah’s roles were also more serious, deep and meaty dramatic roles compared to Drake’s generally-light comedic work.

Most young actors don’t get the chances either of them had, of course. They have to get their SAG more like the backup Nickelodeon or Disney/MMC kids do; just thrown in front of an audience and a few cameras with no prep/training and told to do their best and sparkle, Neely, sparkle!

R84 not to pick nits, but Drake wasn’t on ALL THAT, and nor was Josh Peck. They were both too young at the time, and still unknowns. It was just Amanda Bynes who appeared, and iirc only for one or two seasons toward the end.

Drake was hired for THE AMANDA SHOW (Amanda’s ALL THAT spinoff) from the beginning, with Josh joining later on in the third season. The pair notably did not get on well at first meeting (slightly before THE AMANDA SHOW, playing on opposing teams for an episode of DOUBLE DARE 2000) or when first put together to work, but after a rocky few months acting together they suddenly clicked and grew very close—near inseparable. Funny how these things happen.

R88 true. For some insane reason, the people of the mid-late 90s convinced themselves that Drake was the young doppelgänger to John.

Drake even played Cusack’s actual son in a low-key cult revisionist Western, THE JACK BULL (1999). Given the topic of the thread I’d love to say something shitty about that, but in actual fact it’s an underrated movie and Drake (then aged around 12, probably his peak as an actor) was excellent in his role. Miranda Otto & John Goodman also star and are fantastic.

Must be hard for Josh to come to terms with it, assuming he didn’t already know.

After all, Drake was his childhood best friend, his creative partner of over a decade, and seemingly even his lover for a short intoxicated while. That long and intimate personal history they’ve shared doesn’t just dissolve or cease to exist because one of them is cancelled.

Wonder whether and how their relationship proceeds from here? Josh has an infant son and a wife as well as a young following on social media, so really he hasn’t much choice but to cut Drake off permanently—or at least, ostensibly and semi-permanently, until time/culture marches on enough for us to forget.
