David Archuleta, the American Idol runner-up, has just recently finished shooting his guest spot on Nickelodeon’s iCarly which willair next February. He plays himself on the show, but doesn’t sing. iCarly star, Miranda Cosgrove has a web show and David is her special guest in the episode titled, America Sings.
Archuleta says playing himself made it easy.
“I was nervous and thought I’d be awful at acting, but the whole experience felt really comfortable and came pretty easily since I was allowed to play myself,” he told Us magazine.
Would David like to do more acting?
“You do need a good memory for the dialogue, and I’ll have to work on that, but it would be fun to continue acting,” he said. “With iCarly, I also got to hang out with kids my own age for a change, and that was a real bonus.”
Archuleta also said “I’m a huge fan of Nickelodeon…so it was especially cool to make my acting debut on a Nick show.”
The star of iCarly, Miranda Cosgrove had great things to say about David and was even a little star struck by him.
“He was really good,” she told Us. “He said it was his first big acting part and he just kind of came in and we didn’t even rehearse or anything. We just went for it and it went really well.”
Cosgrove also admitted to being in awe of David and commented about the idol she voted for.
“It’s funny when you watch American Idol, the people seem like such a big deal so it was weird getting to meet him in person,” she said. “He is totally normal.”
