David Archuleta Will Basically Play Himself on iCarly

American Idol cutie-pie David Archuleta is making his acting debut on Nickelodeon. David’s basically going to be playing himself, or at least a character very LIKE himself, in an episode of Nick’s hit show iCarly.

David’s gonna play a character who gets a ton of votes in a competition called “America Sings.” Filming begins Thursday. “iCarly is all about super-talented teens so David Archuleta is an ideal fit,” show executive producer and creator Dan Schneider said. Shouldn’t be much of a stretch for David!

No word yet on when the episode will air, but stay tuned and look for your favorite “Crush” on Nick soon. AND, if you haven’t seen David’s new video for “Crush”, check it out!
