Career[edit]

1991–2003: Films, Initial Guitar Lessons, and The Amanda Show[edit]

Bell started acting at the age of five,[14][15][16] encouraged by his father. He stated "I was five, and my dad kind of said, 'Hey, you wanna be an actor?' and I said, 'Sure,' that kind of thing, you know? I was kind of put into it by my dad but, you know, good. I really love it, and I still do it."[10] Bell's first televised commercial was for Whirlpool Appliances. "I had to sit under a tree and eat a Popsicle," Bell later stated, "I thought, 'I could get used to this.'"[17] His first television show appearance was on a 1994 episode of Home Improvement.[18] He appeared in the 1996 film Jerry Maguire,[19] and had a small role in the Seinfeld episode "The Frogger" in 1998.[20] In 1999, he acted in a commercial for Pokémon Red and Blue[21] and in the movie Dragon World: The Legend Continues.[22] In 2000, he was nominated for a Young Artist Award for his role as Cage Redding in the made-for-television film The Jack Bull.[23] He received his first guitar lessons from Roger Daltrey when he starred with him in the 2001 film Chasing Destiny.[24] From 1999 until the show was cancelled in 2002, Bell was a featured performer on The Amanda Show.[24] He also made a guest appearance on the series The Nightmare Room.[25] Bell formed his band, at the time named Drake 24/7, in 2003.[26]

In 2004, Bell was cast as Drake Parker alongside real life best friend and former Amanda Show costar Josh Peck on the Nickelodeon series Drake & Josh, a spinoff of The Amanda Show.[27] During this time period, he made a guest appearance as himself on Nickelodeon's Zoey 101[28] and won the first of three consecutive "Blimp Awards" at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards in the "Favorite TV Actor" category.[29] His song, "Found a Way" (featured as the theme song for Drake & Josh) is also included on the show's soundtrack, which was released on February 22, 2005. In 2005, Bell co-starred alongside fellow Drake & Josh actress Miranda Cosgrove with Dennis Quaid in Yours, Mine and Ours.[30] Telegraph, Bell's debut album, was released independently on August 23, 2005.[31] The album includes 12 tracks, all written by Bell, but was also co-written with Michael Corcoran or other co-writers.[32] Being an independent release, the album ran out of print, and was re-released on August 7, 2007.[33] Bell's song "Highway to Nowhere" was performed on an episode of Zoey 101.[34] "Highway to Nowhere" is included on the Drake & Josh soundtrack[35] and Bell's album Telegraph.[31] Bell's song "Down We Fall" was played on an episode of Drake & Josh titled "Number 1 Fan".[36][37] In 2005, Bell performed with Hawk Nelson in a video for the Hawk Nelson song called "Bring 'Em Out," which was featured in the movie Yours, Mine and Ours.[38] The studio version was included on Hawk Nelson's EP Bring 'Em Out[39] and on the special edition of Hawk Nelson Is My Friend.[40]

Bell only paid for 5 songs for 45,000, but only 4 songs made it to the EP.[72] In February 2012, Bell appeared in a Shane Dawson video entitled Kidnapping Drake Bell.[73] Bell was cast as Spider-Man in the animated TV series: Ultimate Spider-Man based on the comic book of the same name.[74][75][76] He later reprised the role in The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, replacing Josh Keaton who originally recorded his role for the series.
