Drake Bell - The Real OC

Like Marissa, Ryan, Summer and Seth, Jared Drake Bell is from The OC - only that's his real-life hometown! Son of world champion billiards player Robin Dodson, Drake is the youngest of five children. His dad got him into acting and he did his first TV commercial at age five. Drake attended the Orange County High School of the Arts and currently lives in Los Angeles.

Drake Bell - The Actor

Drake's big break came along when he appeared in Jerry Maguire as Jess Remo, the kid who disses Tom Cruise. He has starred in High Fidelity with John Cusack and made a number of small screen appearances on shows like Seinfeld, The Drew Carrey Show, Home Improvement and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. On Nickelodeon, Drake starred in The Amanda Show and appeared in The Nightmare Room, both with Amanda Bynes.

Recently, he appeared on Zoey 101's Spring Fling episode with Jamie Lynn Spears!

Drake Bell - The Musician

Along with his acting chops, Drake also has major talent in the music department. On both The Drake and Josh Show and in real life, Drake plays a mean guitar and sings his heart out. He composes all of the music that he plays on the show, including the show's theme song. His band, The Drake Bell Band, performed on All That, a show similar to Saturday Night Live which has hosted stars like Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears. Dig Drake's music?
