Drake from 'Drake and Josh' is absolutely ripped now and fans are obsessed

Drake from 'Drake and Josh' is absolutely ripped now and fans are obsessed

The scenario is this - and bear with me here because it is going to take some hops of imagination on your part - but here we go, the scenario is this: you're a former child star who appeared in a highly successful kids show, but now it's all finally come to an end and it's time to move on.

What do you do?

Well, thankfully we have countless examples to fall back on if you're struggling a bit to figure out what you want to do next.

  1. You could star in Mean Girls, then open a beach club in Greece.
  2. You could start a female fronted rock band, having appeared in the best Christmas film in the world ever.
  3. You could basically be quite cool and then tweet JK Rowling and ask for a part in the next Fantastic Beasts film.

Or, you could do none of the above and carve your own path, though to be honest I'd probably try to amalgamate 1. and 2. so that I could found my very own female fronted rock band (I'll play drums) and then retire to my beach house in Greece to sit in the sun until I shrivel up like a prune.

There is another path open to you - you, the imaginary child star who's run in the Nickelodeon sun has finally come to an end - and it's what we might dub the 'Drake' route. No, not that Drake, this Drake, he of 'Drake and Josh' fame, the OG, the cool original, Vitamin D, whatever you want to call him.

Drake and Josh tv show

There's Drake Bell back in the day - those halcyon days of yore in which he starred in the wildly popular show Drake and Josh.

Well, in the intervening years, Drake has become so buff and ripped it's hard to place the new Adonis with the kid he used to be.

Don't believe me? Take a look for yourself:

Here he is just casually leaning on a rock

Getting a bit racier now, Drake

If you're wondering if he's going to pop a top on at any point...

...He's not. Of course he's not

Of course, Drake Bell has been somewhat busier than merely posing topless with impossibly beautiful women and half-eaten breakfasts. He is a musician, with new music out, and I suppose I'm saying that it might be worth a listen, if you enjoyed gazing upon his mostly naked form.

So tell me, in this imaginary ex-child star life of yours, which route are you taking: 1., 2., 3., or Drake Bell?
