Josh's dad, Walter Nichols, just so happens to be marrying Drake and Megan's Mom. He's a super nice guy who tells a mean joke-or at least Josh thinks so. Drake and Megan, on the other hand, aren't exactly ROFL.
JONATHAN GOLDSTEIN: Jonathan, who plays Josh's father, Walter Nichols, waited tables for 10 years to help pay the bills between acting gigs. In a bizarre twist of fate, one of Jonathan's regular customers turned out to be "Drake and Josh" producer Dan Schneider, who didn't recognize his fave waiter on the audition tape. "After he picked me his wife Lisa looked at the tape and said, Hey, isn't that our waiter, Jonathan?'" Goldstein said. Jonathan honed his acting skills at New York University and Northwestern University before landing a role on "All My Children" and heading for Hollywood. His TV credits include "The West Wing, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Once and Again."
