Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Though he spent several years struggling to make it as an actor, Jerry Trainor finally had his first breakthrough in his 30s on the popular teen series, "Drake & Josh" (Nickelodeon, 2004-07). Like Jim Carrey before him, Trainor was able to portray loveable and goofy characters while deadpanning lines and tackling physically challenging comedy - often in colorful get-ups or even undressed. Prior to "Drake & Josh," he toiled as a guest star in series television, landing episodes here and there on shows like "Angel" (The WB, 1999-2004), "Crossing Jordan" (NBC, 2001-07) and "ER" (NBC, 1994-2009). Though he appeared in a few features, including the indie hit "Donnie Darko" (2001), Trainor was relegated to minor and often nameless characters that appeared briefly on screen. When he was cast on "Drake & Josh," however, his fortunes changed overnight. After the show left the air in 2007, he immediately segued into another popular 'tween sitcom, "iCarly" (Nickelodeon, 2007-12), which allowed him to steal the show with the go-for-the-laughs attitude that had finally turned him into a star.
