Rotten Tomatoes: Movies

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.
